Choosing a Reputable Contractor For Your Home Improvement

When researching contractors, it’s important to understand that not all review websites are created equal.  Even more reliable than review websites is talking to a contractor’s past customers.  This will allow you to understand the caliber of work performed, the quality of materials used, and the thoroughness of the clean-up.  Homeowners that rush through this process often have less than ideal results.  The results of having work completed in its entirety to a homeowner’s satisfaction is much less when the contractor is someone that knocked on their door after a storm occurred.

Creating Energy Efficiency with Your Roof Shingle Color

When it comes to roofing, the shingle color has more of an impact than just curb appeal because a darker roof can heat up faster than a lighter roof.  However, if a home’s insulation and ventilation are at the correct levels, the temperature of a dark roof is not enough to have negative consequences.  In the winter months, the goal should be to get the attic to the same temperature as the outdoors.  This prevents ice dams from occurring.

LeafGuard® is Lindus Construction’s Preferred Gutter Option

Many times, when homeowners are replacing their roofs, they also opt to have new gutters installed.  Open style gutters are a cheap way to filter rainwater away from a home.  However, they are prone to clogging.  Topper devices are often expensive and still may not ward off gutter maintenance.  For these reasons, many homeowners choose LeafGuard® Brand Gutters.  They’re patented, one-piece are guaranteed never to clog.  This warranty transfers to the next owner of your home.  In addition, LeafGuard® Brand Gutters have been certified by the Good Housekeeping Institute to handle over 32 inches of rain in an hour due to their oversize downspouts.  LeafGuard® Brand Gutters imitate the look of crown molding.  They are offered a variety of colors to match any home’s architecture.

Get Lasting Results with Composite TimberTech® AZEK® Decking

Green treated deck boards can be cheaper than composite materials.  However, green treated deck boards are also vulnerable to warping, rot, and decay.  For a deck, with a longer lifespan, many homeowners opt for composite decking materials, like TimberTech® AZEK®.  Metal framing systems are also gaining popularity because of their beauty, durability, and longevity.
