Siding gives you a great way to add color and definition to your house. There are lots of options these days to help you create the perfect façade and you want to choose carefully. While aesthetics are always important, you also want to consider the material's durability, ability to resist water, ease of installation and versatility.
How to find a leak in a roof may be the hardest part of fixing a leaky roof. Finding the actual spot where the roof leaks is difficult because water can enter the roof in one place and run down to another before it starts soaking into the ceiling.
You know the roof is bad if shingles are missing or obviously damaged, or when water stains the ceiling or walls. The goal is to find the leak before the entire roof goes bad.
Quality shingles act as a protective barrier to your property, help keep your home properly insulated and potentially increase your home’s overall value. Knowing a bit about your shingle options helps you find an affordable and effective way to cover your home.
How to Choose the Right Siding
To sort out options in siding, consider climate, home style, and most importantly, budget.

Modern window frames cut air infiltration down to almost zero and, when used with advanced glazings, can slash up to 40 percent off your heating and cooling bills. Some windows also free you from periodic painting. Still others rival fine cabinetry in eye appeal.
Even if a storm didn’t produce a torrent of rain or volley of hail, wind alone can cause enough damage to your roof to warrant repair or replacement. So after a tornado, thunderstorm, hurricane or hailstorm, make sure to check the condition of your roof.
“Every thunderstorm has a straight-line burst of wind,” says Walt Zaleski, a National Weather Service meteorologist. “At 50 to 60 mph, you start seeing damage to homes — trees toppling, power lines coming down, debris blown from your neighbor’s house.”
Shield Roofing & Construction will be at the Huntington Home & Garden Show on March 10th through the 12th and it would be a worthwhile idea for you to be there too! This year we've decided that we want to give back to the community that made us as strong as we are today - specifically two of them!
We're giving away a FREE ROOF to one lucky entrant into our Free Roof Contest which will only be available to enter during the Huntington Home Show! Not only that, but we'll also be giving away $2017 off of any future project to another lucky entrant because it's 2017 and we believe it's about time you took care of that exterior renovation you've always wanted to have done!
Knowing the condition of your roof is the surest way to determine whether your roof needs repairs or replacement. However, for many homeowners, accessing the roof with a ladder for a close inspection represents an unnecessarily dangerous prospect.
