What To Consider When Insulating A Crawlspace

When insulation within the home is discussed, it’s easy for your thoughts to gravitate towards the attic.  However, lackluster insulation within a home’s crawl space can lead to frigid flooring.  To address this, the entire cavity of the crawl space should be covered in spray foam insulation.  This can also address the effects of toxic, invisible radon gas emitting from the soil.  It’s also advantageous to investigate whether a dehumidification system is needed to lower the moisture levels within a crawl space.


How To Prevent Moss On Your Roof With Zinc Or Copper Roof Strips

Another game-changing home improvement that’s not commonly discussed is the utilization of zinc strips at the peak of the roof to ward off algae growth.  Zinc or copper roof strips installed beneath the rows of shingles nearest to the roof’s peak can act to transport the necessary molecules down the roof which will stop the growth of algae.  For homeowners in need of roof replacement, GAF manufacturers shingles with StainGuard Plus™ technology that is engineered to routinely emit algae-fighting copper.  Even more impressive is the fact that the warranty for this technology is 25 years, guaranteeing that the roof will remain absent of discoloration for multiple decades.

Are Seamless Gutters Worth It?

While there are numerous gutter gizmos and gadgets within the marketplace promising to channel water away from your home’s foundation, it’s a rarity for this to occur when the gutters are manufactured with seams.  Over time, seams will begin to weaken and eventually leak, rendering the gutters useless.  Homeowners that have LeafGuard® Brand Gutters installed appreciate the seamless design of these high quality gutters.  Plus, you can experience peace of mind knowing that if they ever do clog, the installation contractor will clean them free of charge, so your home will never have damage from clogged gutters.

"Had my entire house equipped with new gutters. Tyrell, the foreman, was awesome. He contacted me before they started, went over their plan to ensure it matched my expectations and then got after it. He checked in a couple times to maintain our alignment on the project. When he was done made sure my place was clean and even hauled off old gutters. He’s the kind of guy you’d hire if you could. He’s that good!! Very very happy!!"

"Paid a bit more to get a professionally installed roof and got just that. Could not be happier. After any hail event, they are always willing to come out and inspect for damage and will even check in with us to see if we need the roof checked. The LeafGuard® system is fabulous...as a person who has had a "ladder incident" I am thrilled to be able to stay on the ground and not worry about blocked gutters and keep runoff away from our foundation."

"We had Lindus bid on our roof replacement and also remove and replace our LeafGuard® Gutters. Communication was great through the entire process, we were provided great information and options. The removal and replacement of the gutters was done right on schedule and completed quickly. Overall just very professional and I would have zero concerns trusting them for any job.
