Carp's Pre-Winter Tips to Protect Your Home’s Exterior
Complete the Package with James Hardie Siding Installation
|TIPS FOR GUTTERS
Keep your gutters and downspouts clear of leaves and debris. Proper drainage prevents ice build up that can cause water damage to your roof, siding and more.
Carp’s Complete Exteriors offers high quality, leaf-proof gutter systems to minimize ice dams, and prevent water issues caused by blockages. Our home remodeling experts will address any underlying issues such as rotting boards or eroding shingles around your gutters, and can make necessary repairs.
|PROTECT VULNERABLE AREAS
Carp’s Gutter services paired with James Hardie siding replacement offers the ultimate protection package for your home!
Soffit and trim panels are key construction elements that cover the underside of your roof eaves and accentuate doors and windows. They are the key to creating a finished, polished house, but they are also vulnerable areas when it comes to water damage. Pair new gutters with HardieSoffit® and HardieTrim® for the best protection against water damage, mildew and rot.
TIPS FOR YOUR ROOF
On a residential home, the average roof needs to be replaced every 20 years. Severe hail storms can leave impressions in your roof and loosen shingles. Over time, normal wear and tear from nature can leave cracked, bald, torn or even missing shingles that cause leaks. If you have any signs of water damage on your ceiling, repairs to your roof are likely needed. Roof leaks can cause dangerous mold after repeated rain, snow melt, and moisture. Simply patching it may not fix underlying issues and could actually lead to more expensive repairs down the road.
Is your roof ready for ice, snow and winter storms? If you’re not sure, contact Carp’s Complete Exteriors for a free roof inspection.
|PROTECTION FROM ALL SIDES
Your roof is the first line of defense from rain and snow, but the sides of your home play an important role in protecting your home from winter weather too.
James Hardie siding is hail resistant, water resistant, and engineered to withstand the harsh, freezing winters we experience in the Midwest. James Hardie fiber cement siding is tested to withstand extreme weather and storms, as well as the change of seasons that can break down other types of vinyl or wood siding. Only James Hardie products are Engineered for Climate®, which means they resist damage caused by wet, freezing conditions.
|TIPS FOR WINDOWS
Check your windowsills and frames for signs of wear or damage. Rotting wood windowsills can encourage pests. Improperly sealed windows can leak and cause water damage during a storm. Plus, old windows that are drafty can increase your heating bills and make your family uncomfortable.
Window replacement is one of the best home remodeling projects in terms of investment return, and gives you a more comfortable home with enhanced beauty and value. If you choose a high quality window from an experienced installer like Carp’s, your window replacement project can save you money. According to Energy.gov, installing low-e storm windows amounts to a savings potential of 12%-33% on your annual heating and cooling bills.
CREATE A PROTECTIVE BARRIER
Along with properly maintained and sealed windows, James Hardie Siding can add a layer of coziness. It offers another barrier of protection from the elements, and can add to your potential savings from reduced utility bills.
Unlike wood, James Hardie siding and window trim products are water, wind, and even pest resistant, so you never have to worry about whether the critical elements of your home will be protected. A professionally installed underlay of HardieWrap® Weather Barrier, Pro-Flashing, Flex Flashing and Seam Tape adds even more protection against water damage, mildew and energy loss.
