How do you know your roof is in need of replacement:
Here in the northeast we experience some pretty gruelling winters that put our homes roof to the biggest test. What is under your roof shingles makes a huge difference.
Proper use of Ice & Water Barrier Products, plus insulation and ventilation, help prevent - a major culprit when it comes to roof leaks.
What is an ice dam? A ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow from draining off the roof.
What causes an ice dam? Ice dams form when indoor heating rises through the ceiling into the attic and warms the roof surface.
How do they form? Snow on the heated part of the roof melts and flows down until it meets the part of the roof that is below 32 degrees. At that point, the water freezes into an ice dam.
How do ice dams lead to water damage? Water backs up behind the dam and, as it sits on the roof, works its way under the roof covering and flows into the attic. From there it can seep through insulation, ceilings, walls and other areas where it can cause damage.
How do you prevent an ice dam? Keeping a consistent attic temperature can help prevent ice dams. Insulation and ventilation are key components of maintaining the proper conditions in the attic and on the roof deck.

You may be interested in enhancing the exterior of your home and vinyl siding is the first thing that comes to mind. Vinyl siding offers your home a complete transformation in a matter of weeks. With a variety of colors and styles available on the market the options become endless. With the wrong installation the problems can be endless too!
Vinyl siding benefits:
Instant added value to your home
Maintenance free home
Added insulating values
Home protected from the elements
Installing vinyl siding should be left in the hands of a professional. Poor installations can leave you with thousands of dollars in damage. The sad part is that most customers are unaware what is right and what is wrong. In the end the customer will suffer.
Problems due to poor installations:
Blown off siding
The #1 problem in a poor siding job is overlooking flashing. A good contractor will foresee any water issues and correct the problem before it is a problem. I have seen it way too often when flashing was install incorrectly. Nobody will see the results until the real damage has been done.
A quality siding job consists of:
Removal of old siding to expose any damage and ensure proper nailing of new siding
Tyvek paper and/or styrofoam instalation
Proper flashing installation
Good quality vinyl siding that carries wind ratings and a thick mil rating
Quality aluminum bending that leaves no open voids for water penetration.
Quality caulking. Leave caulking to a minimum and where necessary be clean and neat. All caulking will eventually shrink and discolor.
Pressure bends on aluminum facias will strenghten and help eliminate wavy facias.
Make your home transform into the home of your dreams!!!
