Benefits of Marvin Windows

Infinity® from Marvin Windows wins favor with homeowners because they mimic the aesthetics of wood without the maintenance. This eliminates the worry of mold or mildew growth.

Infinity® from Marvin Windows are offered in an array of colors, allowing homeowners to match their home’s current woodwork and exterior features.  The exterior acrylic finish is durable and long-lasting.  Testing has proven the proprietary Ultrex® fiberglass to be eight times stronger than wood.

This protects against expansion and contraction which can weaken the windows and allow air and water infiltration to take place.  This can prove problematic because it places additional strain on a home’s furnace, creating potential for it to reach the end of its lifespan faster than normal.

Here’s What You Need to Know About Infinity® From Marvin Windows:

For homeowners planning an interior home remodel, the internet can be a great place to start.  Websites like Facebook and Houzz.com showcase designs from contractors throughout the country and allow homeowners to get a better handle on their personal tastes.

If a space is being completely overhauled, it’s wise to retain the services of a reputable interior remodeling contractor that can provide designs for homeowners to consider.  Seasoned pros can also offer feedback on whether it’s a sound use of time and money to take on certain components of the project on your own.  Prior to committing to a contractor, be sure to research their online reviews and inspect their previously completed projects.

Planning for Your New Roof

For those in need of a new roof a GAF roofing system is worth a hard look.  The shingles are accompanied with a 50-year, non-prorated warranty that covers both labor and materials.

For homes with heavy shade, surrounded by Oak trees, GAF shingles with StainGuard Plus™ Time-Release technology can provide much needed relief from persistent algae growth.  Used in tandem with zinc strips installed along the ridge, homeowners can rest assured knowing their roof will look as beautiful as possible while reaching its maximum lifespan.

Ever the innovator, GAF has a newly released shingle known as the Timberline® HDZ™.  Roofers appreciate the improved nailing strip with a built-in chalk line, allowing for an installation time 30% faster than any other shingle on the market.

This allows reputable roofing contractors to pass along labor cost savings onto homeowners.  Another appealing aspect of the Timberline® HDZ™ shingle line is that it is accompanied with the industry’s first ever unlimited wind warranty.  Minneapolis roof contractors appreciate that these shingles can be installed at temperatures as low as 20° vs. the industry standard of 40°, which is needed for the shingle sealants to work as needed.

Adding Skylights & Sun Tunnels During Roof Replacement

New roof installation also allows homeowners to increase the amount of natural light and/or ventilation found within their house through the addition of sun tunnels and skylights.

For a minimal additional investment, the noticeable improvement often ranks among the best improvements homeowners have done to their property.  Popular locations include the master bedroom, closets, and bathrooms.

Our Home Improvement Reviews:

"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!!"
