Darn Ice Dams!


Home Maintenance Tip:

An ice dam can form when water from melting snow re-freezes at the edge of your roof-line. Without roof snow removal, the ice dam may grow large enough to prevent water from draining off the roof. The water can then back up underneath the roof shingles and make its way inside your home.

Solution: Remove ice dam and snow from roof – we recommend calling a professional.

Prevention: Make sure your attic is well insulated & ventilated to help prevent the melting-and-freezing cycle that causes ice dams to form and try to remove the snow from your roof eaves after every snowfall.

Check & Replace Air Filter Regularly


Home Improvement Tip:

Dirty air filters will reduce the airflow in your home, forcing your furnace to work harder. Plus, it creates more dust and increases indoor air pollution in your home. Check and replace your air filters regularly so your furnace can heat your home as efficiently as possible.

Featured Project: Siding, Roofing & Garage!

This home recieved quite the transformation over the summer. We first replaced the old three tab shingles with Owen's Corning Duration shingles. The existing cedar shake siding was charming, but required too much maintenance. So, we used LP SmartSide to preserve the character of the home. The darker siding color really accentuates the home's features! Next, we demolished the former garage to make room for a bigger & better garage. The client now has space for two vehicles, storage area above and room to spare! A brand new concrete walkway & driveway was the perfect final touch to this home's makeover.
