What Homeowners Should Understand About Gutter Replacement

While there are a lot of different types of gutter systems available in the marketplace, LeafGuard® Brand Gutters are the only patented, one piece gutter system to have earned the Good Housekeeping Seal of approval.  In fact, the Good Housekeeping Institute certified them to handle over 32 inches of rain in an hour.  This is largely due to the system’s oversize gutter downspouts.  Even more reassuring is that LeafGuard® Brand Gutters come with a lifetime no-clog guarantee.  In the unlikely event that LeafGuard® Gutters ever clog, the installing contractor will clean them free of charge.  This warranty even transfers to the next owner of a home.

Facts About Residential Window & Door Installation

When it comes to home window replacement, it’s important to select house windows that match a home’s architecture.  For owners of rustic homes or cabins, Infinity® from Marvin Windows with the EverWood® Engineered Finish can be a solid choice.  That’s because the custom windows come with a woodgrain maintenance-free finish.  In addition, Infinity® from Marvin are highly energy efficient windows.

Another factor that impacts the energy efficiency of residential windows is the window installation technique.  Full frame window replacement has a more energy efficient outcome over insert window replacement.  That’s because insert window replacement removes the window sashes but keeps the window frame intact.  This prevents the window installation service from addressing any water or air infiltration issues.

While there are many types of entry doors to consider, two of the more popular materials are steel and fiberglass.  A drawback to a fiberglass front door is that it is more difficult to close than a steel door.  While both steel and fiberglass doors are energy efficient, steel house doors tend to be more durable.  A quality front door replacement can last for 30 years.

A Word About Home Insulation

When it comes to ice dam prevention, some homeowners opt to have heating cables installed on their roof.  However, heat tape should be used as a last resort when the roof insulation problem cannot be solved with the proper combination of insulation and ventilation.  An example of this could be a hot roof.

"I was extremely impressed with Lindus from the very first phone call to get an estimate on a new roof for my home. All of the customer service people, Brittany and Donna, to Jake in sales, Wayne and Brock with carpentry, Hunter on gutters, Tucker as project manager and the entire crew that did the roofing. Everybody was very professional, friendly, and great communication from beginning to end. I have recommended Lindus to others! Thank you so much!"
