Tips To Maintain the Exterior of Your House This Winter

Here are a few simple tasks you can do to help maintain and extend the overall life and look of your house. Some want that quick fix, to hang up Christmas lights and call it good. You don’t just want your house to look pretty with lights at night but be proud of your home in the daylight too. Owning a home is a big investment that you want to keep in good condition year after year.

Keep up regular maintenance on your Wichita, Kansas home this winter

Owning a home is a big responsibility and investment, and you want to keep it looking nice. If you perform regular maintenance on your home, not only will it look better but investing in maintenance now, will avoid larger expensive repairs in the future. The last thing you want is for an issue to go unnoticed and have it snowball into a major expense.

Stay ahead of the winter storms this year by preparing your home for the chilly season. Ice, sleet, snow, wind, moister, etc. can cause significant damage to your home. Follow these tips to keep your home looking good and staying warm during and after this holiday season.

Keep your siding clean

Take the time to go around the outside of your house and inspect your siding and how it’s holding up. Look for cracks, swelling, rot, mold or separations in your siding. If you see any of those listed, call or contact All States to get a free consultation.

If you have recently installed vinyl siding or James Hardie Fiber Cement siding then you’re in luck. Both sidings require minimal monthly maintenance. If dirt or debris begins to build upon its surface, all it takes is a hose and a damp cloth and your vinyl siding will look factory fresh once again.

Check that your windows are working efficiently

Open your windows, clean, and wipe down the cracks and crevasses. This can make sure your windows fully close to keep the cold air out and the warm heat in. This is also a good time to make sure all your window seals are still in place and functioning correctly. Close and lock your windows to make sure they are secure for the winter. If you are experiencing a draft or moisture in the window, it’s probably time to invest in new windows.

Double-check that the area around your window and windowsill is clear. This will prevent from any outside moister latching on to anything inside your home that could cause internal damage.

Is your roof in good shape?

Who are we kidding, December isn’t a time to prepare for inclement weather, it’s to prepare for the guy in the big red suit to come down your chimney. But take a little time to look at your roof, while hanging those lights, or schedule an inspection to look for rust, missing, broken, or curling shingles. If you believe your roof is damaged contact us for a free consultation.

You should be checking your roof and gutters every few months. Once the leaves are off the trees, that’s a good indicator to check your roof, gutters, and downspouts. Granules in the downspouts can be a sign your roof needs repair. Clear out any leaves and debris to prepare for the heavy winter storms so everything can drain properly. Gutters that are backed up cause overflowing that then leads to water draining down your home – eventually leading to the deterioration of your home’s exterior. It can also lead to deterioration of your foundation, water infiltration in the basement, and settling on your porches, patio, and walkways.  

Get your house ready for the cold

Prepare your home for winter, hanging Christmas lights, or even Kris Kringle. Whatever suits you, follow these steps to get your home ready for what this winter season shall bring! Let our family at All States Home Improvement help make your family home more beautiful, comfortable, and valuable.

4 Why’s For A New Roof

Do I need a new roof? What are the benefits of a new roof? Should I replace it before selling my house? These are common questions our customers ask us when considering getting a new roof installed. We answer all those questions and more by explaining our top 4 reasons to upgrade your roof. Without stating the obvious that roofs help you stay warm from snow and dry from rain, the installation of a new roof has tons of other benefits as well.

1. A new roof will save you money

An old and leaky roof can be a real money eater. A new roof installation will ease your stress whenever a heavy rain or snowstorm comes through – saving you money on not needing constant repairs and maintenance. It makes your house more energy efficient, leading to significantly lower energy bills. It’s a one-time long-term investment that makes a big difference in your home lifespan and to your wallet.

2. You’ll have less upkeep

What if you have a leak on a holiday when services are closed? Or come home to a puddle on the floor after a long day of work? We now know a new roof can save you money, but it can also save you on the hassle of dealing with repairs. No more constant maintenance on a leaky attic or damaged shingles. With a skilled contractor that uses trusted material your roof is less exposed to water damage, cracks, mold, etc. If your roof has valleys for cracks, holes, or water damage – it may be time for a new one.

3. Increase your curb appeal

A home is a huge investment, and you want to show off your hard work. We know the saying that looks aren’t everything – but upgrades to your home, like a new roof, will increase the pride in your home.

Do you have black streaks running down your roof? This could mean you are losing granules off the shingles that over time can lead to leaking and major damage to your home. While the streaking may not necessarily be a sign there is major damage to the roof, it is unattractive and downgrades your home’s overall appearance. Your home can dramatically increase in value when you have a new and good quality roof installed. Become the best looking house on the block with a new roof.

If you’re looking for some additional options to improve your curb appeal, consider new siding, guttering, shingles, windows, doors, All States does them all.

4. Sell your home quicker

The home buying and selling process is always a stressful mess. A new roof can ease that process and your house will sell easier. Most buyers aren’t willing to take on a home in need of major repairs. You’ll get up to 60% return on investment when you have a new roof installed. Set your family up for a successful home-selling experience by investing in a new roof.

5 Tips to Keep Your House Cool This Summer

Do You Need a New Roof?

When hail and wind whip through the plains each year, the first thought on all homeowners’ minds is their roof. Will there be damage? How much will it cost? Ahh, the stress!

But what about the rest of the year when there haven’t been any apparent causes of roof damage? How do you know your roof needs to be replaced? Aside from calling us for a consultation, here’s what you can do to check for yourself.

Look in the attic. 

Go against your intuition here. You might think the first place to start is to head straight up to your roof to do an assessment. Instead, grab a flashlight and make your way to the attic. Look for signs of water damage, leaking, or beams of light coming through the roof.

Check your shingles.

Now it’s time to grab your ladder and get a close-up look at your roof. Shingles should lie flat, so damaged shingles may be a quick sign you need to replace your roof. Here are a few things to look for:

  • Missing granules
  • Curling
  • Cracking
  • Missing shingles
  • Hail damage

Depending on the severity and number of shingles damaged, you may or may not need to completely replace your roof. We can help you determine whether repairs or replacement are best for you.

Inspect your roof valleys.

A roof valley is anywhere two downward sloping planes of your roof meet. Because the slopes direct water to the valleys, they pose a significant area of concern for water damage. 

Examine the flashing.

Roof flashing is typically made of galvanized steel and is installed around chimneys, vents, and skylights to direct water away. Look for damage on your flashing like cracks or breaks. If the flashing is loose or rusted, it could signal leaking problems. Older roofs have flashing made from cement or tar. If this is the case for your home, you should consider updating your flashing to metal for a longer-lasting system.

Survey the gutters.

If your gutters are filled with granules from your shingles, your roof is worn out and ready for a makeover.

Assess the curb appeal.

If your roof has noticeable, unsightly moss, water damage, or sagging, it’s probably time to install a new roof. Do you have black streaks running down your roof? Those streaks are caused by algae, which will develop and worsen over time. While the streaking may not necessarily be a sign there is major damage to the roof, it is unattractive and downgrades your home’s overall appearance. To avoid streaking, you can install composition shingles on your new roof. Zinc or copper are mixed with the granules on the shingle’s surface to help prevent algae and fungus growth on the roof.

Find your paperwork.

When was your current roof installed? Most homes are equipped with composition shingles, which are meant to last approximately 20 years. If you can’t find the date of your roof’s install, take a look around your neighborhood. If the homes around you are getting roofing updates, it may be time for you to join.

Identify roof leaks.

A clear sign your home’s roof needs to be replaced is leaking. If you have wet spots on your ceiling, you likely have a leak in your roof. Water damage is not a problem you want to sit on. If you notice mold, water stains, a musty smell, or bulging walls, act swiftly and call us to schedule a consultation.

Unfortunately, leaks are not always apparent, so you may need to do a bit of investigative work. As stated before, look inside your home for leaks before heading up to your roof. Start in the attic or inspect your ceilings for any signs of water damage. If there are no apparent signs of leaks, it’s time to take a look at your roof. The most common place to find leaks on your roof is around the vents, so inspect these areas first and then move on to your flashing. Additionally, mold, mildew, and moss from excess moisture can cause irreversible damage to your roof, so contact us immediately if you find any present.
