What We Look for During a Repair or Inspection
Roofing. We check the flashing, caulking and chimney cap. These are all areas where you can see the first signs of trouble. Flashing that's starting to pull loose should be repaired as soon as possible. Left alone, it could pull the gutters away from the roof.
Windows. Windows are the most expensive part of your house to replace. Before you take that step, find out if we can repair them with caulking and insulation. In some cases, we can replace the flashing to get them looking and working like new. If they need to be replaced, we can do that.
Doors. Is your door letting in cold air? If your door isn't shutting properly, you could be losing heat and wasting money every day. We can also trim a door that doesn't fit, repair your doorbell or repair the hinges.
Gutters. Like your roof, your gutters send early warning signs of trouble. For instance, crumbled pieces of asphalt in the gutter could indicate that the shingles are disintegrating. If you see black spots on your gutters, are they harmless stains or are they mold? We can let you know.
Siding. We look for signs of mold and mildew in your siding. Siding that feels soft or spongy could be starting to rot. The high humidity levels in our area mean constant monitoring of your siding to make sure it's not holding moisture. Other siding problems can include cracked, loose or warped pieces.
What's Your Grade?
When you're replacing your appliances, cabinets, fixtures or flooring, you have many choices. It's a good idea to select the best grade of building materials that you can within your budget. Here are how different grades of building materials stack up.
Builder's grade. Although many people think that "builder's grade" means a material most builders want to use, in reality they describe materials that are used for a quick fix. They are not meant to be long-lasting repairs. Typically, they are less attractive and less durable than other grades.
Quality grade. These materials and fixtures are made to last longer and look better. Typically, they are made from durable, high-quality materials and available in a wide variety of sizes, unlike builder's grade products that tend to be limited to a few standard sizes. Quality grade offers you more design options and longer warranties.
Custom grade. If you want specific materials and styles, you're talking about custom-grade building materials. These are materials like tiles, flooring, cabinetry and fixtures that can't be found in a store. In most cases, they need to be ordered and made according to your specifications.
Ultimate custom grade. This typically refers to finishes that are done by hand, specialty fabrics and fixtures, luxury materials, handmade wallpapers and custom-mixed paints. Customers who want a unique design and
