Fiberglass doors offer durability, low maintenance requirements, and excellent insulation properties. They resist warping, rotting, and denting, making them ideal for various climates and high-traffic areas. Fiberglass doors also come in a wide range of styles and finishes.

To measure for a new interior door, measure the width and height of the door opening, including the door frame. Subtract 1/2 inch from the width and 3/4 inch from the height to determine the door size needed. Be sure to measure both the width and height at three points (top, middle, bottom) to account for any unevenness.

Regular maintenance tasks for doors include cleaning surfaces with mild soap and water, lubricating hinges and moving parts, inspecting weatherstripping for wear or damage, and repairing any signs of wear or deterioration promptly. Avoid slamming doors and keep them properly aligned to prevent issues with operation and sealing.

Impact doors, also known as hurricane-resistant doors, are specially designed to withstand high winds and flying debris during severe weather events like hurricanes and tropical storms. These doors are constructed with reinforced materials and impact-resistant glass to provide enhanced protection for homes and buildings.

The time required for impact door installation can vary depending on factors such as the complexity of the installation, the number of doors being installed, and the availability of materials. However, a professional installation team can typically complete the installation process within a day for most residential properties.

Impact doors offer a range of customizable options to suit individual preferences and architectural styles. Homeowners can choose from various door styles, finishes, hardware options, and glass designs to create a personalized look for their entryways. Additionally, some manufacturers offer custom sizing and configurations to accommodate unique door openings.

Questions About Patios and Pergolas

Pergolas offer several benefits, including providing shade and shelter from the sun, defining outdoor living spaces, adding aesthetic appeal to your backyard, and creating a comfortable environment for relaxing or entertaining.

The time it takes to install a patio door depends on various factors such as the type of door, the complexity of the installation, and the skill level of the installer. On average, the installation process can take anywhere from a few hours to a full day.

Impact patio doors are specially designed doors that can withstand high winds and flying debris during severe weather events like hurricanes or tropical storms.

Questions About Roofs

Metal roofing offers numerous advantages, including exceptional durability, longevity, energy efficiency, and low maintenance requirements. It can withstand extreme weather conditions, such as high winds, heavy rain, and snow, making it an ideal choice for areas prone to severe weather. Additionally, metal roofing is available in a variety of styles and colors to complement any architectural design.

The time required to install a metal roof depends on various factors, including the size and complexity of the roof, the accessibility of the property, and the experience of the installation crew. On average, a professional installation team can complete the installation process for a standard residential roof within a few days to a week. However, larger or more intricate projects may take longer to complete.

Your new metal roof will be rust-resistant if your roofing contractor knows what they’re doing. Metal does indeed rust. But special processes and coatings are implemented to ensure metal roofs will NEVER rust. In addition, metal roofing does not absorb water, which is the biggest reason for rust development.

No. In fact, many metal roof owners have reported energy savings of up to 35%. Properly vented metal roofs allow airflow between the steel panel and underlying deck. Heated air dissipates through the ridgeline, while cooler air is drawn through eave vents. Metal roofing also comes with a special reflective surface, so sunlight bounces off of it.

Metal roofing is significantly more durable than asphalt shingles. While asphalt shingles typically last 15-20 years, metal roofs can last 50 years or more with proper maintenance. They are resistant to cracking, shrinking, and eroding, making them a long-term investment in your home’s protection and aesthetics.

Aside from periodic rinsing with a hose or pressure washer, metal roofing needs virtually no maintenance. Since metal is much stronger than asphalt, you won’t have to worry about leaks, corrosion, and replacing shingles. Metal roofs also resist algae growth!

Questions About Siding

Vinyl siding is prized for its low maintenance requirements, durability, versatility, and affordability. It offers a wide range of colors and styles, resists fading and insect damage, and requires minimal upkeep compared to other materials.

Vinyl siding is an excellent option for many homes due to its versatility and durability. It can withstand various weather conditions, including moisture, heat, and cold, making it suitable for regions with diverse climates.

With proper maintenance, vinyl siding can last for several decades. It is known for its longevity and resistance to rot, pests, and weathering, providing homeowners with a durable and cost-effective exterior cladding solution.

While vinyl siding offers limited customization compared to other materials, homeowners can still choose from a wide range of colors, textures, and profiles to achieve their desired aesthetic. Additionally, accessories such as trim, shutters, and decorative accents can enhance the appearance of vinyl siding.

Routine maintenance for vinyl siding involves periodic cleaning with mild detergent and water, inspection for damage or signs of wear, and addressing any issues promptly. Avoiding prolonged exposure to harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners can help preserve the integrity and appearance of vinyl siding.

Vinyl siding is considered an eco-friendly option due to its energy efficiency, recyclability, and minimal environmental impact during manufacturing and installation. It can contribute to improved insulation and energy savings for homes, reducing overall energy consumption.

Vinyl siding installation requires careful attention to detail and adherence to manufacturer guidelines to ensure proper fit and performance. Hiring experienced professionals familiar with vinyl siding installation techniques can help ensure a successful and long-lasting outcome.

Many manufacturers offer warranties for vinyl siding products, covering defects in materials and workmanship for a specified period. Additionally, reputable contractors may provide installation warranties to guarantee quality craftsmanship and customer satisfaction. It’s essential to review warranty terms and conditions carefully before proceeding with a vinyl siding installation project.

Questions About Windows

Yes! But don’t confuse “shatter-proof” with “crack-proof.” If a tree branch hurls toward the window at 80mph, it may crack the outer layer of glass of an impact window, but it will NOT penetrate the lamination or inner layer of glass. This is what makes impact windows so much safer than ordinary windows during hurricanes.

Yes, if not more so. The extra-thick layers of impact windows help reduce energy transfer in and out of your home.

Vinyl windows are popular for their durability, energy efficiency, and low maintenance requirements. They provide excellent insulation, reduce energy costs, and come in a variety of styles to suit any home aesthetic.

When selecting windows for your climate, consider factors such as insulation properties, resistance to weather elements, and energy efficiency ratings. Consulting with a local window expert can help you make informed decisions based on your specific climate needs.

While some homeowners may choose to install windows themselves, it’s generally recommended to hire a professional for proper installation. Professional installers have the expertise, tools, and experience to ensure a seamless installation process and maximize the performance of your new windows.

It depends on the material of the “ordinary” replacement window. Those special materials mentioned in the previous answer cost more to manufacture than materials used in something like a double pane vinyl window. What’s important to remember is that impact windows are an INVESTMENT and will last longer than other types of windows.

The lifespan of windows can vary depending on factors such as material quality, climate conditions, and maintenance. On average, windows may need to be replaced every 15 to 30 years. Signs that it’s time for replacement include drafts, leaks, condensation between glass panes, and visible damage or deterioration.

Regular window maintenance tasks include cleaning glass surfaces, lubricating hinges and tracks, inspecting weatherstripping for wear or damage, and addressing any signs of moisture intrusion or air leaks promptly. Following manufacturer guidelines and scheduling professional inspections can help prolong the lifespan of your windows.
