Replacing the Windows of the Home

All parts of the home, interior and exterior, should be in good repair and doing their jobs well, from the windows to the insulation in the walls to the roof and the plumbing. Not only will a functioning house be a comfortable place in which to live, but it will also minimize wastes of money and excessive utility bills. Leaking pipes waste water, and a leaking roof can cause water damage. Meanwhile, if a home’s windows are loose or drafty, or not protected with drapes or window blinds, they may disrupt the home’s interior climate control, and this will lead to a lot of wasted electricity per year and overwork the home’s air conditioning and heating unit. Not to mention, old and loose windows are easier for burglars to break, and they may be unattractive anyway. For these reasons and more, a homeowner is urged to have any old or damaged windows replaced with newer ones that are not drafty or insecure. Wood windows are a strong option, and can be secure and very attractive in the home. V

Commercial Roofing Problems To Watch Out For This Winter

Winter is right around the corner and the roofing of your commercial building is crucial for protecting your business from the cool, wet weather. Even in Alabama, winter can take a toll on your roof, which is why it’s so important to take great gear in planning for any potential damage.

To help you stay prepared for things like moisture, snow, and ice on your commercial roofing, here are a couple things that every commercial building owner needs to be aware of during the colder months.

Snow buildup

Alabama may not be as prone to snow as other regions in the U.S., but that doesn’t mean you don’t need to be prepared for it. The extended weather estimate for this season predicts that the winter season will be cooler and wetter for the south, but snowfall remains unpredictable.

Wet snow can weigh heavier than dry snow, even when there’s very little of it. Commercial buildings have a maximum weight limit, which means that heavy snow can put a dangerous level of stress on the structural integrity of your commercial roofing.

Be sure to have a snow removal plan in place just in case. It’s better to be prepared for snowfall that doesn’t happen than to be unprepared for snowfall that does.

Condensation

Although winters can be wet in Alabama, the insulation of your commercial building shouldn’t be. Condensation can occur in your building’s insulation when the warm air inside the building comes into contact with the cold outside air.

Warm air can sometimes escape even in the most well-insulated buildings. If left unnoticed, the condensation that results can cause mildew, mold, and other damage to your commercial building’s structure.

To prevent condensation from causing problems, make sure to routinely inspect your commercial roofing system and to ensure you get the proper ventilation systems you need to minimize damage.

Do you need commercial roofing maintenance?

Seasonal maintenance is important when it comes to keeping your commercial roofing in excellent shape. Up to 40% of all building-related issues are caused by water intrusion. Fall maintenance can keep you from suffering from roof leaks during the winter months.

Wood Paneling The Addition You’ve Needed In Your Home?

Looking for that new update to a room or piece of furniture that’s just lost its spark and you’re not quite sure how to improve? Perhaps the thought of stick on wood panels hasn’t crossed your mind yet. Or maybe you’re worried that you won’t get the desired look that you’re hoping for? Well get all of those preconceived notations out of your head because self adhering wall planks are the new way to add a different flavor to the rooms in your home that you might think have lost their luster. Before you find yourself shelling out money that you’d rather invest in something else try DIY wall planks to give your home some new texture.

Considering that hardwood trees can take over twenty years to grow back as usable materials, constantly cutting down trees for goods may not be the best outlook one could take on when it comes to changing their home. For those projects that need a new and fresh feel sometimes peel and stick paneling can do just that without spending an arm and a leg or
