The extreme temperature fluctuations in the Twin Cities are responsible for the expansion and contraction of several home features including flooring, siding, and windows.  The manufacturers that tend to understand and address this are those that are located in the Midwest.  Infinity® from Marvin Windows are manufactured in northern Minnesota, an area that sees some of the biggest temperature swings in the nation and are manufactured to specifically withstand nature’s elements.  Standard with each window is a double pane glass pack.  However, we’ve found that when compared against triple pane windows, we’ve found the inside pane of glass to be warmer on the Infinity® from Marvin Windows.  This is due to energy transfer.  Particularly with oversized triple pane windows, the mid-section of the window panes become closer together, creating an opportunity for cold air to transfer from one pane to another.  Infinity® from Marvin Windows utilize stainless steel spacers and a wider glass space creating an aesthetically pleasing energy efficient window.

A second way to enhance the amount of natural light your home receives is through the installation of a sun tunnel.  If you’re unfamiliar, a sun tunnel is a dome that’s installed on a home’s roof that reflects light inward.  Sun tunnel installation works particularly well in areas that would not otherwise receive natural light such as bathrooms, hallways, and closets.  This cost-effective home improvement produces dramatic results.

When it comes to the exterior of your home, LeafGuard® Brand Gutters are an affordable option that allow homeowners to forego the dangerous chore of unclogging their gutters.  In addition, they have the aesthetics of crown molding which enhances your home’s curb appeal.  The patented one piece system has earned the Good Housekeeping Seal and if it ever clogs, we’ll come out and clean it for free.  LeafGuard® is custom fabricated for each home that it’s installed on, ensuring ad optimum fit every time.

Regardless of the home improvement project they’re requesting, homeowners consistently ask for maintenance-free options.  When it comes to siding, our two top sellers are LP® SmartSide® and SeasonGuard steel siding.  This is largely due to their beauty and ability to stand the test of time better than wood or vinyl options.
