Do you install metal roofs

Yes we install several different types of metal roofing. We have traditional metal products such as standing seam, R-Panel, U-Panel, as well as 5-V crimp.  In addition, we have stone coated steel products that look just like tile, wood shakes and laminate shingles.  Please find samples of our metal products under out Photo Gallery: Metal Products.

Do you repair leaking chimneys?

Yes, we do fix leaking chimneys. If you have a brick or stone chimney there is a very good chance that it may start leaking from this event. Porous materials will soak up water and once they reach a point of saturation they will begin to release that water. This is a very common issue when we have consistent rain for 2-3 days or more. The only thing that can be done to stop the leaks is to wrap the entire chimney in plastic or a tarp. Once the brick has been dried out it can be sealed.  There could certainly be a an issue with the flashing as well. However, if it didn’t leak before the storm there is a good chance it is a saturation problem and not a flashing issue.

How to use Fire Extinguishers!

How often do Fires Happen?

Fires happen more often than people think. There are countless ways that you can interact with a potential fire. Cooking, smoking, electrical fire, and gas fire. There are numerous ways to which a fire can happen at any point. It’s reason like this that we decided to host a teaching blog on how to use a fire extinguisher, your best friend in a house fire.

How to user Fire Extinguishers

how to use fire extinguishers 220x147 How to use Fire Extinguishers! Using a fire extinguisher is pretty easy. The instructions are right there, and the PASS technique is well known, and an excellent example of how simple putting out fires can be when you don’t panic and know what to expect.

The PASS Technique:

  • Pull –Pull the trigger on the fire extinguisher to make the trigger applicable.
  • Aim – Aim at the general area where the fire is happening.
  • Spray – Spray in the surrounding area in an arc movement.
  • Sweep – Sweep from side to side to ensure the surrounding area is not at risk.

What to expect when using a fire extinguisher

typical standing seam valley detail 220x146 How to use Fire Extinguishers!But just because the instructions are simple doesn’t mean it’s going to be that simple when you get there. You need to expect recoil and cleanup problems.

Recoil – Firstly, there is little to no recoil on a fire extinguisher. Most people expect some giant pushback, but it comes out like whipped cream does when you push it all the way down.

Cleanup – Additionally, the cleanup is a little annoying since it is a foam. But once the area has cooled, simply placing a few towels there and some fans will help clear the area.

Expiration – Your fire extinguisher can expire. So make sure to constantly check and ensure that it is up to date at any given time!

Tile vs. Shingle Roof!

Tile vs. Shingle Roof!

Many people are going to be upgrading their roofs soon, and for many, that means making a decision between tile and shingle roofing. When it comes to this decision, it mostly depends on where you are because there are climate specific issues that each style has to undergo.

What about the Tile Roofing

Gerard Barcelona Tile 220x146 Tile vs. Shingle Roof!Price – Tile roofing is more expensive than shingles, but the aesthetic comparison is barely noticeable, especially with those who are making a long-term investment.

Durability – Tiles are much more durable than shingles as well as heavier. This means they are more likely to stay on during a storm and often lasts roughly twice as long as the shingles.

Look – There is a specific look that tiles have that often looks nicer and can come in much more colors. So there are more options available regarding the appeal.

What about the Shingle Roofing

Composite Asphalt Shingles 220x90 Tile vs. Shingle Roof!Price – Shingles are much cheaper than tiles. But with that being said, it is often presumed that people with shingle roofing simply couldn’t afford anything else.

Durability – Shingles are easier at dispersing the wind, but they are incredibly easy to take off in the chance that the wind falls beneath it and pries them off.

Look – The tiles have a much more conservative look to them and often look like flat roofing. They often have a gripped or abrasive edge to better cling if people are moving atop it.

Which is best for me?

The quality of the Roof – While tiles are objectively the better choice, it’s important to make sure your structure can handle the tiles. A tile roof will often weigh as much as five times the amount as a shingle roof and puts a strain on parts of the house.

Weather Conditions – If you are in a typically windy area, you might need to be stuck with tile roofing because they do better under strenuous conditions. Humidity also has the typical characteristics of breaking apart shingles much easier.
