Choosing the Best Exterior Door for Your Home

Posted in Door Installation Contractor Indiana, Security Doors, Steel Doors, Entry Doors

Tips for selecting a new entry, security or storm door

Perhaps the most important component to the appearance of your home are your exterior entry doors. It provides access to the home, therefore visitors and ourselves interact with them on a regular basis. While the process of choosing a new entry, security, or storm door may seem simple... the selection process can prove to be a more complex decision than most would assume. Most people strictly look for the door that they think will give their home a nice look, but there are many more factors to consider when searching for a new door.
entry1Generally, the first question is what kind of door do I want? To figure out what the answer to this question is, we must first ask… What is the main purpose of the door? An entry door can fall under many categories, such as security, aesthetics, or even convenience.
When we think about choosing an entry door, we typically want something that will add character and value to our home, while also allowing us to feel safe from intruders and environmental factors. The best types of doors to satisfy these concerns are made of wood or steel. Both options provide adequate security, as well as provide an opportunity to customize the product to your preference. While steel doors are usually inexpensive and require less maintenance, wood doors add value and a very unique style to your home. Based on which aspects are more important to you, the choice between a steel entry door or a wooden entry door can be found with relative ease.
When choosing a storm door, the main purpose tends to be functional. Storm doors are meant provide insulation to the home, saving energy and even protecting entry-doors from getting damaged. They tend to be a very worthwhile investment when considering the benefits, and the repercussions of not having one. In addition to providing protection, a storm door can also add a nice touch to a home, increasing value and appearance. The best storm doors are often made of steel and glass, but are also available in wood and screen material.

Is there a Benefit to Installing a White Roof on My Home?

Posted in Roofing Contractor, Roofing Installer

The Right Roof Can Slash Your Summer Energy Costs

Some studies suggest that installing a white roof reduces air-conditioning costs by 20 percent or more in hot, sunny weather. Could this be true? Well, the idea behind the white roof is just plain old common sense.  Darker colors absorb the sun’s energy more intensely than lighter colors like white, which is more reflective. It’s no surprise than that white roofs can bring many energy savings. 

Lower energy consumption can also result in fewer of the carbon dioxide emissions that contribute to global warming. In addition, a white roof can cost as little as 15 percent more than its dark counterpart, depending on the type and quality of the roof shinges, while slashing electricity bills. Sounds like a win, win for everyone.

Some research suggests that white roofs can cost more than other roofs. The costs are not that high in fact. You will have to pay 15% more than with the usual roof but can reap the rewards for years and years. The advantages that come from having a white roof installed, far outweigh the upfront price difference:
