As you consider replacing your windows or doors, look for these indicators that your old windows or doors need to be replaced:

 

Poor performance – opening and closing is a difficult task; air leaks in, out or around the window; condensation or fogging occurs on or between glass panes;

 

Safety - windows that don’t open easily or are painted or nailed shut may prevent a safe escape during a fire when seconds count.

 

Looks – chipping, deterioration, and water stains on the window or the area around the window (inside or out).

 

Effort – cleaning is a major hassle; replacement parts are hard to find or even non-existent

Improve the energy efficiency of your home

 

Keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter by opting for Low-E (low-emissive) glass coatings. Low-E helps reduce heat transfer and ultraviolet (UV) rays that can fade carpets, walls and furniture.

 

You also can reduce heating and cooling costs by replacing old single-pane windows with today’s energy-efficient double- or triple-pane windows.

   

 

Roofing Maintenance

Most homeowners pay little attention to their roof until it leaks. Roof leaks are more than just an inconvenience. They can be the cause of internal damage which is difficult and more costly to repair. Most roofs require periodic maintenance. Failure to address such maintenance can result in a leak. A roof can leak at any time. It is our recommendation to repair a roof system, rather than perform a wholesale replacement, when there is a small degree of accelerated deterioration (5%). By undertaking the recommended maintenance, you can prolong the life of the roofing system for a few more years.

CAUSES OF LEAKS IN YOUR ROOF

  Aging roofing materials (shingles).

  • Defects in the flashing details around roof penetrations, such as chimneys and plumbing vents/valleys.

  • Exposed nails, nails in the wrong place, or not set flush with the shingles underneath.

  • Wind driven rain that enters through louvers, through unprotected chimneys, under curled or buckled shingles, through the siding and behind improperly caulked flashings.

  • Broken, damaged or missing shingles.

  •  Ice damming in winter ( attic ventilation problems).

  • Raccoon or squirrel damage.

  •  Areas of premature wear on heavy drainage areas.

VENTILATION PROBLEMS

  • Inadequate number of vents.

  • Proper ventilation of a roofing system is critical to its durability.

  • Without adequate ventilation, heat and moisture build up in the attic and can cause rafters, trusses and sheathing to rot. The shingles can buckle, curl and become brittle.

  • Ice dams most often occur when attics are improperly ventilated and insulated.

  • It is important to ensure that louvers, ridge vents and soffit vents are not blocked by insulation, especially during the winter.
