Check out this recent window installation that was somewhat unique. Our team was tasked with removing a large multiple panel single pane window and replacing it with three picture windows. The project required some light framework, interior casing/molding and expert measuring and planning.
Recently, the homeowner completed a third party post-installation survey and gave us a great review.
Check out what she said here.
In addition to one sliding glass door on the rear of the home, the work order also included three Simonton energy efficient picture windows. The homeowner was looking to improve the view and natural light into the home so she decided to go with a 1/4 - 1/2 - 1/4 configuration where the two flanking windows are 1/4 of the size of the entire opening and the center window is 1/2 of the size of the opening, therefore providing a great vew and plenty of natural light. In doing so, the configuration required our installation team to provide some light framework to the window opening in order to properly secure each new replacement window.

Most homeowners figure they need a new roof after they spot a leak in their ceiling. This leak could be due to many different roofing problems. But, what factors really determine whether a roof repair will solve the problem or the house needs a whole new roof installed?
Here are some tips to help you determine if you need a new roof:
* How old is your existing asphalt shingle roof? Most experts agree that a typical roof will last between 15 and 20 years if it was installed prior to 1995.
* It also depends on whether the old roof was removed and you only have one layer of shingles, and if it is properly ventilated.
* If the roof was installed over another layer or several layers and it is older than 20 years, chances are you need a new roof.
* Shingles that are curled or buckling are another sign that you may need a new roof.
* Look at the slopes of your home that get direct sunlight and if you notice the shingles are curling and losing granules, it could mean the shingles are past their life expectancy. There could alsobe a possibility that the roof is defective.
* Contact a licensed roofing contractor to see if you could be eligible for reimbursement.
* If your roof shingles are falling apart or missing in this area, it's a definite sign you need a new roof.
* Valleys are one of the most important areas of your roof. Snow and rain flow through valleys and into gutters.
* If the valley is compromised, you could be susceptible to roof leaks.
* These are another sign your roof could be failing.
* Check to see if all of the "tabs" are intact.
* This is another area to be concerned about. If your flashing consists of roof cement or tar, it may need to be replaced with a long term, water-tight fitting, which would be a metal flashing system.
* Look in your gutters to see if they are loaded up with shingle granules.
* Roofs tend to lose more granules toward the end of their life cycle.
* Check your attic to see if there is any daylight coming through the roof boards. Also check for moisture in the insulation.

"I had done a lot of checking around in the field, making sure that every company I talked to could do BOTH windows and roof. The process was uniform, and became monotonous. One thing that was a must-have for me was interest-free financing. Donnie, my Home Visions rep, was very laid back and approachable. He wasn't condescending and he asked me pertinent and relevant questions that targeted my exact needs. So when he revealed the investment for my project, I felt that it was more than fair, and I'm glad I acted. Everything is going according to plan."

"We went through the whole song and dance that a lot of the major companies all seem to do...the long presentation, followed by the outrageous quote. Then, my wife suggested we take advantage of our current Angie's List subscription, and investigate a highly rated company from that source. That's how we found Home Visions. Our rep Tony didn't fight us when we told him specifically we didn't want the dog-and-pony show, so he got right to the point, and actually LISTENED to us when we said we needed to meet a certain price target. And as for the installation, I can't say enough about Dave Hong...the man's a real pro. I was amazed he and his crew were able to complete the job in a single day, when we were prepared to have it drag into a second day. Well done."
