When insulating a crawlspace, the entire area is frequently encapsulated.  This includes the wall and the ceiling to ensure that the room above is addressed.  Many times, the ground is sealed off with polyethylene.  This process reduces the effects of the stack effect and creates optimum energy efficiency.

It’s a sign that your roofing contractor is thorough and reputable if they’re reviewing the quality of your home’s insulation during their estimate.  In terms of shingle manufacturers, homeowners that opt for GAF asphalt shingles experience a high level of satisfaction. They’re accompanied with a 50-year, non-prorated warranty that covers labor and materials.  From a curb appeal standpoint, GAF asphalt shingles offer substantial depth.  Thicker shingles, such as GAF Glenwood®, also prove advantageous during hail storms because they can better withstand impact than builder grade shingles.

For homeowners planning to add new flooring to their home, bamboo is worth a serious look.  However, prior to committing to the installation of bamboo flooring, verify whether the specific flooring you are looking at can be refinished, as some come with a finish that cannot be reworked.  Homeowners that opt for high-quality bamboo flooring appreciate its durability, thanks to its density. This is particularly advantageous in homes with pets.  While bamboo flooring comes at a premium price point, eco-conscious homeowners can appreciate its renewability.  Bamboo can also be used for trim and cabinets.

When it comes to front door installation, the custom options are endless in terms of colors, glass packs, materials, and style.  Skimping on front door quality can have catastrophic consequences for a home’s level of energy efficiency because of the level of air infiltration that can occur.  While entry doors with multi-point locking mechanisms can be harder to close, they do offer optimum energy efficiency because of the tight seal they offer.
