Gutters play an essential role in the health of your home. Yes, they collect water from the roof but most importantly, gutters channel the water away from your home to prevent potential roof damage, foundation issues, and other water damage. If you are experiencing basement flooding, damp walls, or soft spots it may be an indication that your gutters are not installed or draining properly. Basement water proofing can be quite expensive; before one takes extreme measures, we usually recommend giving new gutter installation a shot. Chances are the new and properly replaced gutters will eliminate the excess water issues including mild mold cases and musty odors. All gutters will need to be maintained and cleaned regularly. We’re here to help you select the right product for your home; improve the aesthetics, minimize repair costs, and prolong the life of the materials used.

One of the least expensive ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency is by adding more insulation to your attic. Attic Insulation may not seem like a big deal, but it can have a significant impact on your energy bill and it will only cost a fraction of what you’ll pay to install energy efficient windows and siding.
Heat Rises (Winter) During cold winters, we spend big bucks trying to keep our houses a comfortable temperature. But heat rises, and very few homes are designed to be airtight. That means that a significant amount of the hot air you blow into your home is going up and seeping into your unprotected attic. There, it cools from the uninsulated environment, and falls back downstairs, forcing more hot air up. It’s a vicious cycle that leeches the heat from your house. Some estimates say that 25% of energy is lost through this process.
Heat Rises (Summer) Not only is lacking attic insulation bad during the winter, attic insulation also plays a key role during the summer. Attics can get unbearably hot during the summer months, even reaching as high as 150 degrees. This heat warms the entire structure of your house, which is why your ceilings and upper level often feel so warm. The heat from the attic, now being pumped into the home, makes your air conditioner work harder to cool your house, increasing your energy bill and increasing wear on your air conditioner. It’s even worse if your conditioned air is pumped through your attic, as all that heat saps the cool air from the ducts. This could lead to heat blowing from your vents.
Heat Radiates Having a hot attic and little insulation between it and you means that, on a hot day, your top floor’s ceiling becomes a boiler plate. The problem is that building materials like wood soak up heat readily, and then radiate it back. With no insulation to keep your ceiling’s timbers from heating up, they will get nice and toasty. That heat will, in turn, radiate down into your home, countering much of your cooling effort and further wasting money.
Considering that attic insulation is relatively inexpensive, there’s little money to be lost and lots to be gained from insulating your attic. Nearly 25% of energy loss occurs through the attic of peoples’ homes. In order to make your home as energy efficient as possible, the Department of Energy recommends insulation level of R-49 in the state of Illinois.
