When it comes to replacing your homes existing siding many times it comes down to two choices, vinyl or fiber cement. If it were 50 years ago your choice would be to either paint or aluminum siding. New technologies have widened people options, but maybe not for the better.
There are two types of people, those who like to stay with the status quo and do what they know, and those who adapt with the times and embrace new technologies along with being more environmentally conscience. If you’re the latter then James Hardie® Fiber Cement Siding applied by K & B Home Remodelers, a James Hardie Preferred Elite Contractor, is the product for you.
Made from sand, cement, and wood fibers, HardiePlank® siding is an eco-friendly building material unlike its toxic counter-part vinyl, which is comprised mainly of polyvinyl chloride, a known carcinogen.
When it comes to windows the same holds true. While vinyl windows have become more or less a commodity item, and are comprised of the same toxic compound as vinyl siding, Andersen™ Fibrex Windows professionally installed by K & B Home Remodelers offers not only an eco-friendly alternative, but a window system that will perform better, look better, and last longer than any vinyl replacement window.
If you’re looking to enhance the entrance way of your home you may want to consider a custom made Portico by K & B Home Remodelers. They add functionality while making a grand statement by transforming your home’s exterior.
September signifies the end of summer, back to school and the onset of winter. Now is the time to be proactive and check your existing roof to see if it’s time to replace it. Age alone is not the factor to go by but it’s certainly an indicator. Here are the telltale signs:
- Age, if your roof is approaching or older than 20 years.
- Missing or damaged roof shingles.
- Your roof is leaking.
- Visible algae or moss growing.
- Poor or improper ventilation.
Here is something you can do if you have accessible attic. Go up into your attic during the daytime. Shut off the lights, you should be able to see daylight along the eaves. If you don’t it could mean that your soffits are not open or they are being choked off by improperly installed insulation.
