Skylights are a wonderful way to bring more natural light and warmth into your home while saving on energy costs.

Post Storm Scam - The Storm Chaser

Post Storm Scam - The Storm Chaser
Roofing
Tools & Tips

Do you ever wonder why roofing contractors get a bad reputation?  Much of it is due to roofing scammers called Storm Chasers or roofing gypsies. These out-of-town roofing companies pack up from wherever they are and temporarily locate to where the latest storm has caused significant damages. Once there, they canvas the area with literature, knock on doors and may even offer a free inspection. A contractor simply showing up at your door unannounced and offering to do repairs on the spot with payment, is a huge red flag. Don't fall victim to them! Their plan is to get as much work done as they can, in the shortest amount of time, and move on to the next storm damaged area. Should there be any issues with the work they performed, that is at the homeowners expense. By that time, they are likely long gone and can't be held accountable since there is no way to reach or find them.

Why Attic Ventilation Matters All Year-Round

Why Attic Ventilation Matters All Year-Round

In a past blog, we discussed the importance of attic ventilation for your home. Proper ventilation serves two main purposes: in the summer it allows hot air that has collected at the roof deck to escape out of the attic, and in the winter it thins and removes moist air before it can lead to damage. Here are the reasons ventilation matters in every season.
