If my roof is damaged, is it best to repair or replace the entire roof? Roof Repair is a where an existing roofing system has additions and adjustments made to it, such as caulking, re-roofing and repairing penetration to fix leaks in the roofing system.
Be Proactive! Schedule regular maintenance inspections.
Roof Maintenance is the physical inspection of an existing roof to determine its current condition, detect weakness and failures and identify any potential future problems. Through a program of regularly scheduled annual or semiannual inspections, the company’s technicians assist owners in protecting their roofing investments by seeking to identify damage in its early stages.
Early detection of leaks and roof system failures make it possible for the company to repair and extend the life of a roof system, which is significantly less expensive and time-consuming than re-roofing.

What is a Double Pane Window?
Insulated Glazing, more commonly known as double pane, are double glass window panes separated by an air or other gas filled space to reduce heat transfer from outside to the interior of your home. Insulated Glass Units are manufactured with glass in range of thickness from 3 mm to 10 mm (1/8″ to 3/8″). Laminated or tempered glass may also be used as part of the construction. Most units are manufactured with the same thickness of glass used on both panes but special applications such as acoustic attenuation or security may require wide ranges of thicknesses to be incorporated in the same unit.
What are Window Spacers?
The glass panes are separated by a “spacer”. A spacer is the piece that separates the two panes of glass in an insulating glass system, and seals the gas space between them. A spacer that reduces heat flow in glazing configurations may also have characteristics for sound dampening where external noise is an issue. Typically, spacers are filled with or contain desiccant to remove moisture trapped in the gas space during manufacturing, thereby lowering the dew point of the gas in that space, and preventing condensation from forming on surface #2 when the outside glass pane temperature falls.

Choosing the Right Type of Siding
The first step to a successful siding project is determining the best material and installation for your needs (not to mention choosing the best siding contractor for the job – that’s us!). Read below about the most common types of siding materials for residential structures.
Wood siding is the most widely used form of residential siding. Wood offers the greatest variety in form, coming in large panels, shingles or individually horizontal boards. Because wood is porous, absorbing and giving off moisture, you must properly maintain wood siding to prevent deterioration. The following wood siding styles are available:
- Wood panel sidings are made of plywood or hardboard, which is constructed of heat-processed wood pulp pressed into sheets. Panels are normally 4’ by 8’, 4’ by 9’, and 4’ by 10’ Plywood siding styles include smooth and rough finishes. Hardboard offers greater variety, including embossed sheets that resemble shingles.
- Boards or solid wood siding, both horizontal and vertical has a breadth of styles including vertical board-and-batten; bevel or bungalow; drop tongue and groove; or shiplap.
- Shingle sidings are ideal if you are looking to achieve a rustic look.
Easily adaptable to a wide range of architectural styles, aluminum is available in either wide or narrow horizontal board siding and comes in a wide variety of colors and textures. Aluminum siding provides long-term durability and low maintenance.
Installed in the same manner as aluminum, vinyl is a plastic that will not dent or scratch. It is much more flexible and easier to work with than aluminum. Vinyl also provides long-term durability and low maintenance.
Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement siding has the look of natural cedar siding and is available in a variety of colors. It is extremely durable and will not crack, rot, or delaminate. Fiber cement siding also resists hail, mold, and mildew. Paint lasts longer on fiber cement siding compared to most wood siding. Most manufacturers back their product with a fifty-year material warranty. Depending on the product’s finish, a ten or fifteen-year paint warranty also is available.
