A New Entry Door Can Make Your Home Safer & Add Curb Appeal

Posted in Steel Doors, Entry Doors

70% of burglars enter through a home's door

Research shows a strong first impression is formed when a person first enters your home, starting with the look and feel of your home’s front entry door.   It’s the first thing anyone notices before entering. Why not make a positive statement and invest in a door that not only adds curb appeal but enhances your home security at the same time.

If you have a wood door, consider updating it to a steel security door. If your current entry door is dented, replace it with an inexpensive steel door, a fiberglass door or upgrade to a nice wood grain door. Installing new entry doors can secure your home against theft and keep out warm air as an added bonus. New doors are far safer than old doors and harder for would-be thieves to get through. Since 70% of burglars enter through a door, it’s very important to make sure your entry doors and sliding doors are secure and that locks and latches work properly.

Trim A Seal installs energy efficient replacement entry doors and security doors to improve the appearance of your home’s exterior and keep you safe. We’ve been providing the best quality products and services for your home throughout Northwest Indiana for over 60 years. We carry top of the line Indiana and HomeGuard Doors in hundreds of color and style combinations. Call today to request an in home visit or stop by our showroom for more information.

A Retractable Sunsetter Awning Can Cut Energy Costs

The Green Way to Reduce Energy Use

Having an Sunsetter awning installed over your patio or deck during the summer offers not only a great escape from the hot sun, but it also helps to shield your carpet and furniture from the sun’s harmful rays.  However, one thing you may not have considered is that because outdoor shade products, like awnings, reduce the amount of sun coming through your home’s windows, they also help reduce your energy use! A study by the American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers proved that awnings keep your home up to 30% cooler. That can add up to substantial savings in energy usage and costs. For the same reasons, awnings are actually good for the environment.  How you ask?  Because using an awning contributes to a reduction in a household’s demand for energy which then directly reduces the impact of global warming from excessive energy use.

Whatever the reason you choose a Sunsetter retractable awning, you can’t go wrong.  Contact the awning installation experts at Trim-A-Seal today to find out more. Call 1-800-217-6355 for a free no hassle estimate.

Gutter Helmet is Guaranteed for Life

Prevent Clogged Gutters and Ice Dams


Gutter Helmet of Indiana serves the Ft. Wayne, Crown Point and surrounding areas. We install America's #1 gutter protection system. Gutter Helmet is guaranteed to last a lifetime so you never have to clean your gutters again - we promise!

People usually think of rain gutter protection in the spring or fall when gutters have a tendency to clog with leaves and heavy rain cause overflows that bring gutter problems to our attention. The fact is that snow can also cause major problems when you don’t have a proper rain gutter protection system in place.

Not only do gutters keep rain from running off your roof and over doorways and entryways and getting you wet, they protect your home from damage by managing the flow of water. Having a gutter protection system actually serves a very important function. When rain hits your roof it runs down into your rain gutter system and drains safely away from your home. The power of hundreds of gallons of rain water running off your roof can be a damaging source of nature. Where does it go once it gets to the edge of your roof? Without gutters it goes right to your home’s foundation. The dirt around your home saturates with water leading to foundation damage, water in your basement, mold problems and a host of other expensive and troublesome problems.

But I do have gutters you’re thinking? Yes, but if your gutters and downspouts aren’t cleaned and functioning properly, it’s the same as not having any. Clogged gutters cause rain water to overflow onto the ground below. That’s where rain gutter protection comes in. A good rain gutter protection system like Gutter Helmet solid gutter covers can protect your foundation, basement and home from damage.

5 Reasons to Install Vinyl Siding on Your Home

Posted in Vinyl Siding Contractor Indiana

Advice from Indiana's Leading Siding Installation Contractor

 Thinking of replacing your old cement or aluminum siding? The 5 Star Indiana siding contractors at Trim A Seal have compiled a list of the top 5 reasons you should consider installing vinyl siding instead.

1. Great quality that can withstand damage from rocks from lawnmowers, weather, etc.
2. Significantly improve appearance and the value of your home 
3. Easily replace a single damaged piece of siding.
4. Easy care; spray and wash twice a year.
5. Long lasting, durable and cost effective

In addition to these points, there are many other positive benefits from switching to Alcoa, Variform, or Certainteed vinyl siding. Homeowners have found that installing Alcoa, Certainteed, or Variform vinyl siding is an eco-friendly alternative. When compared to other siding products such as cement, vinyl siding leads the way in energy efficiency. One reason vinyl is considered more efficient, is that the home’s exterior doesn’t need to be repainted every few couple years like fiber cement siding. Because of the light weight of Certainteed, Variform, and Alcoa vinyl siding, less energy is used in transporting it vs. heavier, less fuel efficient products like cement or brick. Also, vinyl siding is recyclable!

Another bonus when it comes to having a green, energy efficient home is that insulated vinyl siding can add 10% – 25% additional R-value to wall systems to reduce energy bills and help the earth at the same time.

Looking for a free vinyl siding estimate? Call the vinyl siding experts at Trim-A-Seal of Indiana today at 1-800-217-6355. They are standing by to answer your questions. Or visit us online at Homeowners in Indiana have been choosing the professionals at Trim-A-Seal for over sixty years.

Old or Damaged Siding Can Let Moisture in Your Home

Homeowners who have old siding or have experienced substantial wind or damage from summer storms are often left wondering – “is it better to replace my siding or repair it?” Depending on many factors, including your budget and how long you plan to stay in your home, there are a few key things to consider when replacing vinyl or wood siding.
