The siding on your home protects the structure from the wind, rain and other elements. Although there are many different materials that can be used as siding, vinyl siding is one of the most popular options for many homeowners due to the advantages it offers. Our team at Sela can help determine if new vinyl siding is a good option for your home.
Your siding needs to be able to withstand high winds and protect your family against the cold winters and hot summers. Vinyl siding is incredibly durable and is able to withstand wind speeds of up to 200 mph and more. Depending on the manufacturer, you may even be able to get a lifetime warranty on your new siding due to its durability.
Another reason that vinyl siding is so popular among homeowners is its cost. Not only is this material affordable, but it is also quick to install. This means that homeowners also save on labor costs. Additionally, replacing the old cladding with vinyl siding can improve the home’s value at the time of resale, meaning homeowners could potentially recoup the cost of the new siding.
Vinyl siding is incredibly diverse. There are no limits to color options, textures and profiles. In fact, vinyl siding can mimic wood, stone and even slate, giving your home a unique look and improving the curb appeal. This type of siding is even occasionally used on historic homes that are being renovated because they mimic the original materials so well. Choosing textured vinyl is a great way to increase your home’s value without having to use real stone or wood.
Finally, vinyl is often chosen when new siding is needed because it is extremely easy to maintain. Vinyl siding never needs to be painted. Because it is made from manmade materials, the vinyl will not rot or become damaged due to insect infestation or rot. The siding will need to be cleaned with some mild soap and water once or twice a year, but this can be easily done by a siding contractor.
When your home needs new siding, vinyl siding has proven time and time again to be a great option for many homes. If you opt for insulated vinyl, you will not find that your home is well protected against the elements, but you may also see your heating and cooling costs lowered. If you are considering having new vinyl siding installed on your home, give us a call today!
Is your roof beginning to show its age? Are you starting to see signs of weather damage and wondering whether it might be time to hire a roofing contractor? Before you start to panic and worry over the thousands of dollars a new roof might cost, it is imperative you understand whether your roof truly does need replacing or not.

Light in Attic Crawl Space
If you peek your head into your attic crawl space and notice light coming through from your roof, it is time for a roof upgrade. Heat loss through a worn out roof can have a huge impact on your yearly utility costs. Make sure your roof is completely impervious to sunlight and moisture to ensure you are not providing a perfect breeding ground for mold, insects, and small rodents.
If your roof is starting to look like you have a rooftop garden instead of a standard shingle roof, it is time to call in the pros. Too much moss growth on your roof can lead to rot issues and interior water damage. Keep the moss in your garden and not on your home’s roof.
If any of these roof problems are present, please give us a call us for a free estimate to help you better access the state of your home’s most important feature. Without a properly maintained roof, everything from your walls to your electrical wiring can be at risk. Postponing roofing repairs can end up being a costly mistake in the long-run.

As important as the roof is to our house, we need to pay special attention to it as it starts to age. But, how do we tell when it is maybe time to have a professional inspect it for replacement. Below are some tips to help you decide.
1. Have you now, or in the past found shingles or pieces of shingle in your yard. A good strong wind can pull whole shingles, or parts of the shingle, loose from the roof. If in the past after any wind storms, you found these in your yard, it is a sign that your roof needs to be inspected.
2. Water spots on the ceiling in your house. This is a tell tale sign that your roof is leaking and needs repair or replacing.
3. Discoloration on the roof. From the ground can you see spots on your roof that seem to be discolored or look different than the rest of the roof.
4. Buckling shingles
5. Rotting shingles.
6. Consider the age of your roof. The average life of a roof is 20 years. If you area at 20 or more years, have your roof inspected by a professional.
7. What are your plans for the future? Are you going to be selling in the near future? Having a new roof on the house will be a big plus for a potential buyer.
With these simple inspections, you will have a good idea if it is time to be considering a new roof. If you are suspicious at all that your roof may be going bad, call us and we will be happy to come inspect your roof.
