A home’s roof has a deep impact on its curb appeal. Homeowners looking to make a statement should consider GAF Glenwood® shingles. These ultra-dimensional shingles imitate the aesthetics of cedar shake roofing without the maintenance. Even more impressive is the fact that they come with a 50-year, non-prorated warranty that covers both labor and materials.
An area of the home that often benefits from insulation is the crawlspace, as exposed dirt invites exterior air and contaminants, such as radon, into your home. To correctly do this, spray foam insulation should be applied to the floor, walls, and ceiling. Full encapsulation in tandem with the use of a dehumidifier allows for better temperature regulation within the crawlspace. To determine if your home has unsafe levels of radon, have it tested. While mitigation can cause thousands of dollars, failure to address escalated radon levels can lead to cancer.
Go Behind the Scenes on a Twin Cities Insulation Project Completed by Lindus Construction:
Any time a homeowner is evaluating the need for a new roof, the home’s insulation and ventilation should be inspected by a reputable professional. Poor attic insulation and ventilation can lead to an array of issues including elevated HVAC bills, ice dams, shortened roof lifespan, and even attic mold. What many homeowners fail to understand is that attic air sealing is just as important as the amount of insulation within the home. Vulnerable areas include the attic access point, can lights, and roof penetrations.
