Spring Home Maintenance Checklist

Posted in Door Installation Contractor Indiana, Vinyl Siding Contractor Indiana, Roofing Repair , Gutters

Check Siding, Roofs and Gutters for Damage in the Spring.

 

It’s spring and what typically comes to mind for most homeowners is spring cleaning! But there are more important things that can be done in and around your home. Winter can wreak havoc on a home’s gutters, roof, siding and more…especially if problems existed previously – they can only get worse with exposed to freezing ice and water. Follow this spring maintenance checklist to ensure your home is safe, dry and ready for the summer weather. 

  • Siding: Clean off mold, mildew and pollen with a pressure washer. Check for damaged siding that is tearing way from the home. Also look for wood rot and peeling paint. Sand and repaint if necessary. Check for termite damage. If you find a problem, call a certified siding installation company who can do an inspection and repair the problem.
  • Windows/Entry Doors:Inspect and replace caulking, weather stripping and seals if needed. You don’t want air coming into your home when windows and doors are closed.
  • Window and door screens: Clean screens with a scrub brush and hose. Wipe down and dry sills. Check for holes in screen; mend or replace torn screens. Wipe down and dry sills.
  • Exterior Wood Structures: Check wood decks, rails, siding, pergolas and other structures to see if they need to be stained. Keeping them stained and resealed every few years helps them last longer.
  • Gutters and downspouts: Clean gutters and downspouts and check for clogs. Repair or reattach gutters that maybe damaged or have pulled away from the house. Use a hose to check for gutter leaks. If you find some, dry the area and use a waterproof sealant to fix it.
  • Roof: Inspect roof for missing shingles, check flashing, eaves, and soffits. If you see anything that needs a closer look, call a roofing repair specialist to do an inspection.
  • Landscape: Cut back and trim all overgrown bushes and trees, especially anything scratching up against the house affecting the paint or siding or causing shade where you don’t want it.
  • Sprinklers: Inspect sprinkler system for exposed lines, leaky valves, and faulty sprinkler heads. Test the sprinklers in each zone and make sure each area is getting the right amount of water. Make adjustments. Call a professional if your system isn’t working properly. Don’t wait until it’s season to fix it or you won’t have a vibrant green yard this spring.

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.
