5 Star Certified Vinyl Siding Installer

Thinking of replacing your old cement or aluminum siding? The expert siding contractors at Trim A Seal have compiled a list of the top 5 reasons you should consider installing vinyl siding instead.

1. Great quality that can withstand rocks from lawnmowers, weather, etc.
2. Significantly improve face value and appearance of your home at low prices.
3. Easily replace a single damaged piece of siding.
4. Only maintenance is to spray and wash twice a year.
5. Long lasting and durable.

In addition to these points, there are many other positive benefits from switching to Alcoa, Variform, or Certainteed vinyl siding. Homeowners have found that installing Alcoa, Certainteed, or Variform vinyl siding is an eco-friendly alternative. When compared to other siding products such as cement, vinyl siding leads the way in energy efficiency. One reason vinyl is considered more efficient, is that the home’s exterior doesn’t need to be repainted every few couple years like fiber cement siding. Because of the light weight of Certainteed, Variform, and Alcoa vinyl siding, less energy is used in transporting it vs. heavier, less fuel efficient products like cement or brick. Also, vinyl siding is recyclable!

Another bonus when it comes to having a green, energy efficient home is that insulated vinyl siding can add 10% – 25% additional R-value to wall systems to reduce energy bills and help the earth at the same time.

Spring is almost here! Homeowners love this time of year. Flower blooming, buds budding. What they don’t love is the maintenance that has to be done around their home this time of year. One thing that always needs attention is gutter systems. Leftover leaves and tree debris from fall are now sitting in your gutters causing a potential blockage. Spring rains are beginning and if gutters are clogged, it’s hard for rain water to exit gutters via the downspouts and travel safely away from your home.

Clogged gutters can lead to water build up, which means rotten eaves and fascia. Water can also overflow down your home’s exterior and get behind siding, causing wood rot, water in your basement or worse yet, mold. Keep your gutters clean and free flowing!

Vinyl Replacement Windows Installed

There are lots of good reasons to replace home windows but most people procrastinate until winter comes and cold air is pouring in through windows that old, damaged, broken or have poor seals.

With a winter like the one we’re having in Northwest Indiana, old windows can make winter seem more harsh and cost you more money. Old  inefficient windows or those that aren’t sealed well, can account for 30% or more of your home’s heat going right out the window! Literally.  With heating bills going up, that can translate high utility bills. Maybe it’s time to consider replacing your windows!

Buying new windows can be costly, but installing new windows should lower heating and a/c bills resulting in greater monthly utility savings. When it comes to home improvements, replacing windows should be at the top of the priority list. Window replacements can offer you a high return on investment in both savings heating and a/c bills, but also in the value that they add to your home.

How do you know when it’s time to replace old windows and start shopping for new energy efficient windows?

  • Windows panes are separating from window or wood is rottting
  • The windows haven’t been replaced for 20 years or more
  • Frost appears on the inside of window pane
  • You feel a cold draft coming in through closed windows
  • Windows don’t open and close with ease
  • Windows are single pane (instead of double)
