If you're a homeowner, then you know that at some point in time, you're more than likely going to have to replace your roof. However, when that time does come, you won't have to worry about having it replaced again for quite some time. When the time to replace your roof does come, it's crucial that you choose the 'right' shingle color the first time, because once the contractor has started the roof replacement, there's no going back. Having said that, if you're a homeowner and you're trying to make sure that you choose the 'r...

Replace The Siding
The number one way for homeowners to add value to their home is to have their siding replaced! Think about it, what is the first thing you see when you look at a home? Most often, it is the outside (the siding). When a home has old or beat up siding, their home will more than likely earn the title of a fixer-upper, which is never a good thing, especially if you're trying to sell the home! It's important for homeowners to keep in mind that in the real estate world, many people judge a home by looking at it from the outside, so old siding will set the tone for expectations of what potential buyers will find inside. With that being said, w...
Getting a New Roof? Be Aware of These Reasons a New Roof Could Fail

There are a number of key warning signals that your roof may be failing. These danger signals include attic leakage, peeling of interior or exterior paint, stains or mildew growth on interior walls, exterior decay, cracked or missing shingles, and excessive energy costs from improper insulation. If you notice any of these issues with your home or roof, you should have it inspected to see if it needs to be replaced. If you have decided that it is time to make the investment in a new roof, it is important that the roof system is properly installed. Consider these four reasons why a new roof could fail:
  • Poor installation: Even if the contractor installs the best shingle on the market, the roof can fail if not installed properly. It is important to choose a contractor who is experienced in installing the particular manufacturer’s product that you want. If the contractor has experience installing a particular product, he or she will know how the manufacturer’s roof deck protection...
K Guard Offers a Maintenance Free, Exclusion Free Warranty

Warranty Terms 
The most important issue when buying a gutter protection product is the warranty language. The warranty is important because it reveals the true quality and effectiveness of the product. Some companies use misleading language in their warranties in an attempt to deceive consumers into thinking that they are receiving the best coverage. Written warranties are often different than what is inferred in advertisements. For this reason, we encourage consumers to carefully inspect the warranties for all the products that they are considering. 
If a contractor will not let give you a written warranty or let you inspect the warranty language before making a purchase, this is a potential red flag. 

Other gutter protection companies tell their prospective customers that they have the best warranty, but almost all warranties have exclusions. These warranties are not necessarily examples of misleading advertising, but it is important that homeowners carefully inspect the warranties...
Why Should You Choose a Two-Piece Reverse Curve Gutter System?

One-Piece Reverse Curve Gutter Systems 
One-piece reverse curve gutter systems are roll-formed in one piece. In other words, there are not separate pieces for the hood and gutter trough. This may seem like a benefit, but in order to effectively keep debris out, the opening created between hood and trough must be exact. This requires manufacturing precision, as any issue with the roll forming machine can compromise the entire gutter system. Generally, one-piece gutter systems use an internal hanger to support the hood, but the gutter trough is unsupported. If the trough bends over time, it can create a gap large enough to let too much debris in or small enough to disrupt water flow into the gutter. In the event of damage from falling branches, hail, etc., the entire gutter system must be removed and replaced.

They apologized for taking longer, but it wasn't their fault. They were very courteous and professional. We are highly satisfied.
