Investing in Gutters for your home.

All homes need a good water redirection system. Without one your home could suffer irreparable water damage over time. Properly operating gutter systems are vital to keeping your home in working order. There are a several reasons why it is important to ensure your gutters are doing their job well and what to do if they are not.

Did you know that getting new gutters can increase the value of your home and possibly result in lower home insurance premiums? Right!? Talk about a good investment! New gutters also give your home a new attractive look as they come in several different color options that add a nice trim to your current exterior. 

If there are any cracks in your gutters or downspouts you need to have it replaced as soon as possible. When a crack starts it does not stop and with each rain it will get worse. Even one rainstorm coming through a cracked gutter can do significant damage to a home. If you see paint peeling in places around the exterior of your home or water stains on the walls, these are signs of a failing gutter system.

One of the most important reasons to invest in new gutters is that gutter replacement is much more cost effective than investing in repair of serious structural damage that rain water can cause. Gutters do a lot more than keep the rain off you when coming in the door. They protect your homes walls, and foundation, prevent moisture from getting into your home causing potential mold issues and many other problems.

Put that tax money to good use and invest in a new gutter system, protecting and increasing the value of your home.

How Your Roof Can Save You Money.

Did you know, in most cases, over half or your energy bill is going to heating or cooling your home? In many homes energy costs are going through the roof, literally. Your roof is your first — and best — defense against the heat of the summer and the chill of the winter. A low-efficiency, poorly insulated roof can allow heat to seep into your home in the summer months, leaving you with huge cooling bills. It can also let too much heat seep out in the winter, leading to much higher heating costs. Investing money on a good roof now can save you a lot on energy bills in the long run. An energy-efficient roof not only protects you from the elements, but it also keeps your warm when you want it warm and cool when you want it cool. Energy-efficient materials are capable of withstanding the constant beating of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun, extending your roofs lifespan. ¬≠The most energy-efficient roofing products have high solar reflectance, which means that rather than absorbing the sun’s energy. they reflect it back into the environment. The most energy-efficient roofs have high emittance also, which means they release any solar heat they have absorbed more efficiently . When choosing a roof, look for materials that carry the Energy Star label, because they can save you on energy costs. The Energy Star program was created to promote the use of energy-efficient products. The Energy Star label is only given to roofing products that are highly reflective. These roofs can reflect enough of the sun’s rays to lower the temperature on the surface of your roof by as much as 100 degrees Fahrenheit (56 degrees Celsius) [source: Energy Star]. Your location is a big factor when picking the color of your roofing. Light-colored roofs are good in warmer climates because they reflect heat, while dark-colored roofs are better in cooler climates because they absorb heat. When choosing a roofing material, you have many options, including asphalt, metal, wood, concrete and tile. Avoid unpainted metal and aluminum roofs, which aren’t particularly good at releasing energy. Saving money on roofing doesn’t end with picking the right materials — you also need to find the right person to install them. Choose Bill Wax’s Dayton Home Improvement. We are a trusted general contractor with years of experience installing energy-efficient roofs. At Bill Wax’s Dayton Home Improvement we are licensed and insured and all of our roofs come with a warranty that covers labor and materials.

14 Ways to Keep your House Warm in the Winter.

Being warm and comfortable in the winter is about more than just turning up the thermostat and wearing warmer clothes. There are many things we can do around our home to help keep heat in and produce more heat. Here are some tips from your trusted general contractor to staying warm in your home this winter. 

1. In your bathroom make sure you don’t have cold air blowing back into the house by making sure your bathroom fans/vents have draft blockers or baffles on the outside. 

2. Flip the switch on your ceiling fans to reverse them in the spring and fall. Your fan should be blowing the heat that rises back down towards you in the winter. If you have heated floors, turn off the ceiling fans, if you have forced air heat, turn them on. 

 3. Close the vents and doors in rooms you do not use often. Be careful of rooms that have plumbing ran and make sure they do not get cold enough to freeze pipes.

4. In the rooms you do use often, make sure that all vents are open and not blocked by furniture, rugs, or anything else. 

5. A snow fence can be a great way to control where snow drops and control drifting, improving outside ventilation. 

6. If you are not using your chimney make sure both the flue and draft (if equipped) are closed. Heat can get sucked right out of your home through your open chimney. If it will be left unused indefinitely consider a fireplace insulation insert.

7. Check non-living areas such as crawl spaces and utility areas for uninsulated hot water/ radiator pipes. If there are any, insulate them. You don’t want good heat going to unnecessary places. 

8. You can use pipe insulation or pool noodles to block off gaps under interior or exterior doors to stop airflow from cold areas to warm areas.

9. Accesses to attics and crawl spaces can be a large factor in major heat loss. Make sure your access doors or openings are very well insulated.

 10. You can let heat from the sun into your home by uncovering any south facing windows during sunny days.  

 11. Pick up some insulated window coverings. You can get custom made insulating cellular shades made specifically for your window measurements or consider insulating curtains to keep heat in.

12. Interior window insulation can be applied to windows fairly easily and can be combined with shades or curtains to amp up the heat keeping power.

13. Purchase a small, clean burning portable propane heater. You can use these to add heat to the areas you need it only when you need it. 

14. Layer up. wear warmer clothes, keep throw blankets handy. Make an effort to stay warmer without turning up the thermostat.
