“Long after the sweet taste of low price is forgotten the bitterness of poor quality remains” -Arnie Goodman

Continuing Arnie’s Legacy:

Founder and former CEO of American Standard Roofing, Arnie Goodman, built his company on this motto. Arnie really prided himself on offering the highest quality job at the most affordable price. He was not into quick, cheap fixes. With everything he did, he was extremely meticulous, calculated and well thought out.

As his daughter, this used to bother me a lot growing up. In our new age of instant gratification, when I saw something I wanted, I wanted it immediately. My dad would spend days researching the product and find the best on the market. He would drag me across town many times from shop to shop, speaking to sales people, checking out different models etc. Sometimes he would read customer reviews and search for the best deal. He was a very well-informed consumer and this is a gift he offers in return to his customers.

I know that he trained his team to offer the the best in both customer service and quality of service. He would spend his days driving around from job site to job site to be sure that his customers were in the absolute highest care possible. To this day, the team at American Standard Roofing still holds to this depth of integrity. You know when you sign up with us, you will get a job that will leave you feeling elated and a price that is fair and unbeatable. When it comes to your home, that is just the way it has to be. We know this, which is why my fathers Legend still remains. At ASR, we got you covered!

Siding 101: A Comprehensive Explanation by ASR

Siding 101

Siding

In today’s post our panel of experts discusses siding 101 and provides important insights.

Siding 101:

The primary purpose of your home’s siding is to protect the foundation and contents within it. It protects it from rain, snow, wind, and other strong weather elements. Much like insulation, siding helps to shield your home. Insulation keeps the area between itself and the walls free of moisture, insects and dirt. Keeping dry from year-round moisture is it’s biggest job as well as challenge. If moisture is
trapped inside the wall, it can lead to mold and mildew, a very dangerous health concern for your family. Trapped moisture can also cause structural damage to your home by warping and bowing at any point in the foundation.

Siding Provides Protection:

Protect Home

During the cold winter months, a well installed siding can keep in the heat so your family can stay warm and cozy. Siding on your home can ensure proper protection of both your home’s interior and your family living in it. It helps to preserve the
infrastructure, which can deteriorate with wear and tear of the environment. Timely siding replacement and repair will save you money on big damage bills in the long run.

Siding & Aesthetic Appeal:

Aesthetic Appearence Matters

Another purpose of siding is to add to the beauty of your home. Siding take up the majority of your homes exterior surface, so the attractiveness and up-keep is an added appeal to both you and your neighbors. It adds both curb appeal and value to your home.

Few Signs for Siding Replacement:

Signs

If you are unsure if it is time to replace your siding, there are a few sign to take note of.

  1. If there is any signs of warping on your current siding, you will want to get it replaced soon.
  2. You may also start to notice the siding bend and pull away from the home, which means rain water and moisture are most likely getting in.
  3. There may be signs of internal damage, such as peeling paint or loose, sagging wallpaper in a room. Be on the lookout for small green or black patches on the siding on the shady side of your home, which indicates moisture problems and mold growth.
  4. If you feel along the siding and notice any soft spots, this is most likely a sign of rotting boards and needs to be addressed immediately.

Insulation 101: A Comprehensive Explanation by ASR

Insulation 101:

Picking up from last week’s guide on gutters, our team talks insulation 101 this week. We will discuss some benefits of insulation and how properly insulating homes can be cost efficient for owners.

Insulation Works Year Round!

Reflect or Absorb Heat

Insulation is one of the most efficient, cost-effective and practicals ways to save energy in your home. The reason for that is because it keeps your home warm in the winter and cold in the summer. Insulation helps you maintain the desired temperature all year round. By improving insulation on your home, you will save up to 80% in heating and cooling losses, ensuring you maximize the use of the natural resources and don’t waste energy (or money).

Benefits of Insulation:

Insulation Benefits

A poorly insulated home will end up costing a lot of money to make up for it. Whereas a well insulated home will need very little additional heating and cooling. It almost seems like a no-brainer! Insulating your roof is so important as it accounts for approximately 25% of the total heat loss of your home.

Proper Insulation Lowers Your Energy Bills!

Cost Efficiency

Ok, imagine this, it’s winter time and you leave the house in shorts, a tee and flip-flops. When you get to the car, the first thing you will most likely do is CRANK the heat and amp up the heated seats! While outside in your summer gear amidst the winter months, your body will expend a lot of extra energy shaking (literally) to try to build the extra heat to make up for the lack of insulation! For the same reason why you won’t wear a down coat on an 90 degree summer day (helloooo air conditioning)!

Insulation Helps Regulate Temperatures:

Thermal Cycle Effect

When your body is not properly insulated (dressed) for the weather, you will end up spending a lot of excess energy attempting to regulate your body temperature, in the same way your home will. So do yourself a favor, grab a sweater when it’s cold and make sure your roof is also properly dressed for the season.
