If you require a roof replacement you need to hire a contractor that is licensed, insured, and has experience with the material of your choice. Roof replacements are complicated and require training. We recommend not undertaking one yourself no matter how tempting it is to try and DIY. A roof replacement is required when your roof is no longer able to be repaired or is too old to continue functioning. Too many cracks, leaks, and loose shingles mean it’s time to update your roof.
Roof repair is less intensive for your home but just as important as roof replacement. You need roof repair services when your roof is leaking, appears to have been damaged in a storm, or is a bit older. Your roof needs repair as soon as problems are noticed – this way further damage to your roof and home does not occur. We also recommend when you undertake roof repair, you talk to your contractor about annual roof maintenance too!
Your gutters protect your home more than you realize. They move water away from your roof and home to keep it and safe from leaks and flooding.

Gutter replacement is necessary if your current gutters are leaky, falling away and loose from the house, or have major blockages and holes. Neglecting to replace gutters can damage your roof, home structure, and even your basement foundation.

Siding is one of the first things people notice about your home so make sure it looks good! Curb appeal relies on those important first impressions, so if you’re thinking of selling your house within the next five years, siding replacement may be for you! Old, faded, cracked, and loose siding allows moisture into your home. Moisture that gets trapped causes all sorts of problems – mold, leaks, and structural damage that is very expensive to fix. We carry a variety of traditional siding materials including vinyl, fiber cement, cedar, and masonry.
Broken siding doesn’t always need replacement! In many situations damage that is caught early can be treated with simpler and cheaper repairs. Siding repair is the best way to prolong the life of your siding. It patches up the problem and keeps you from spending more money than you need! A contractor will fix your siding and check for further signs of damage that you likely will not notice. Hidden damage is common when siding is damaged as pests can move in and dry rot can take place. Calling a licensed siding contractor is your best bet to ensure your home is safe and dry year round.
Your windows do more than let in light! They help your home stay insulated, look great, and allow for air flow in warmer weather. Old, cracked, and out of date windows are often drafty. This draftiness leads to a less energy efficient house – costing you money! We offer many state of the art windows for installation in your home – and even carry skylights and can create custom pieces too! New windows will increase the value of your home if you are consider selling it, and increase the comfort in your home if you aren’t considering selling it.
