When is it Time to Replace Vinyl Siding?

Posted in Vinyl Siding

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. Let’s first decide if your home needs residing. The first thing to look for is fungus, warped panels or panels tearing away from the home, separating seams, swelling, boards that no longer lay flat, rotten wood or moisture on the inside of your house. These can all be tell-tale signs that siding might need to be replaced.

Dry rot is a huge concern, especially when wood siding is involved. In some cases there maybe visible signs of moisture on the home’s exterior. It’s difficult to tell if your home has dry rot without removing the siding to inspect for damage.

If you need to replace old siding, energy efficient vinyl siding is a great solution for any home. Vinyl siding is virtually maintenance free, energy efficient and long lasting. Look for a durable siding with a great warranty. Want to have your home’s siding evaluated? Call the leading vinyl siding contractor in Northwest Indiana at Trim A Seal.

Sunsetter Fabric Awnings Reduce Heat Loss

Summer is on its way and now’s a good time to consider an outdoor patio shade products, like a retractable fabric awning to keep your home out of the sun’s harmful rays and reduce fading to carpets and upholstery. Awnings reduce the amount of sun penetrating your windows, and can actually help to reduce energy costs! In fact, a study by the American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers concluded that an awning reduces heat gain by 55-65% during the warmest part of the day.

Island Brown with HoodAwnings and patio covers not only save money for home owners but they can also be good for the environment.  How you may 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 greenhouse gas emissions due to excessive energy use.

The benefits of Sunstter awnings go on and on!  Awnings can also be helpful in the winter as well!  The ability to retract the awnings in the winter (as opposed to fixed roof structures) allows the warmth of the sun to penetrate back through your windows and glass doors, helping to heat the house and once again reduce heating costs and energy usage.

Whatever the weather, you can’t go wrong investing in a retractable awning or patio cover.  Contact the awning installation experts at Trim-A-Seal today! For more information call 1-800-217-6355.

So it stands to reason that the better insulated our homes our, the less energy we need when heating and cooling.

There are many issues in a home that contribute to poor energy efficiency, such as old or poorly sealed windows and doors. But to get one of the biggest bangs for the buck in energy savings, make sure you properly insulate your home.

Trim A Seal of Indiana home improvement, offers blown in insulation by Owens Corning. We use the AttiCat® installation system which adds tiny air pockets to the fiberglas insulation to help keep it from settling. And since the insulation won’t settle, it retains its energy-saving R-value better over time.

Things to Consider When Replacing Your Home's Windows

Posted in Replacement windows, Window Contractor Indiana

 

Replacement Windows

Got cold drafty windows? With the type of winter we are expecting this year in Northwest Indiana, old windows can make winter seem more harsh and cost you more money. Windows that aren't sealed properly or are old and inefficient can account for 35 to 40 percent of a home's heat loss. With heating bills on the rise, that can translate into big money. 

Installing new replacement windows can be costly, but new windows should lower heating and a/c bills resulting in greater monthly utility savings. When it comes to home improvements, replacing windows should be at the top of the priority list. Window replacements can offer you a high return on investment in both savings heating and a/c bills, but also in the value that they add to your home.

How do you know when it’s time to replace old windows and start shopping for new energy efficient windows?

  • Frost appears on the inside of window panes
  • You feel a cold draft coming in through closed windows
  • Windows don't open and close with ease
  • Windows panes are separating from window or wood is rottting
  • The windows haven't been replaced for 20 years or more
  • Windows are single pane (instead of double)
  • One big reason to consider window replacement is simply the high cost of heating bills.

Two things to consider when shopping for windows: 1) the style of the window is important. It can affect the overall look and value of your home. 2) Choose the right window for your climate. Vinyl replacement windows are a good option for both warm and cold climates because they insulate well.

Call Trim A Seal of Indiana today for a free, in home consultation and estimate. We have a wide variety of top window brands to choose from including Sunrise, HomeGuard, Armaclad and more. Call 800-217-6355 today.
