Use ColorView to Visualize Roofing & Siding Combinations and More!

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Tell me if this scenario sounds familiar.

It is time to redo either the siding or roofing on your home. You want to try something new, but you are just having a hard time visualizing the outcome. Will that vinyl siding go with those shingles? Will those shingles go with my trim? Will my decking match any of this? How will it all look?

Sound familiar? Well, it doesn’t have to!

ColorView helps homeowners like you visualize your home by allowing you to mix and match your siding, roofing, trim, decking, and other exterior options in a virtual setting. Using CertainTeed’s extensive library of residential building products and colors, you will be able to see exactly how that vinyl siding you like will match your existing shingles.

After you find the perfect combination of products, ColorView allows you to share your choices with a friend or your building professional.

Then, Garner Roofing can supply you with specific product information, samples and an estimate.

Creating your dream home has never been easier!

And now, ColorView Upload Your Home allows you to upload a picture of your home (for a small, refundable fee) to be placed into ColorView. This lets you virtually apply CertainTeed siding and roofing products directly to your home so you can see EXACTLY what your dream home will look like.

Your Gutters are more important than you probably realize!

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

Believe it or not, your gutters play an important role in the protection of your home. Clogged, poorly maintained, or deteriorating gutters can allow water to accumulate where it is not supposed to, damaging your home, landscape, and much more.

Expensive Outcomes of Poorly Maintained Gutters

  1. Foundation Damage: The #1 culprit of most deteriorating foundations is a poorly maintained gutter system. And remember, it is much more cost effective to maintain, repair, or replace your gutters than it is to replace a foundation wall, which could cost you well over $20,000.
  2. Mold: Poorly maintained gutters can cause water to accumulate around your foundation, slowly seeping into your basement…the perfect breeding ground for mold. And depending on the extent of your mold infestation, you could end up paying as much as $10,000 in mold remediation fees.
  3. Winter Damage: Perhaps the most severe of any of our scenarios, winter damage – the accumulation and constant freezing and thawing of snow and ice on your roof and fascia because of clogged gutters – can cause rotting to occur quickly. And as you can imagine, roof replacement is not exactly cheap.

Because of all this, it is important to keep your gutters free from debris. Properly maintained gutters are an integral part of your home’s exterior. They catch water and direct it away from your walls, basement, roof, and foundation.

Low Maintenance Siding: The Perfect Solution for Elderly Homeowners

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

According to a recent study conducted by the American Association of Retired People (AARP), 83% of older Americans prefer to “age in place,” a term defined by the Journal of Housing for the Elderly as “not having to move from one’s present residence in order to secure necessary support services in response to changing needs.”

As we age, we face several real challenges, including decreased mobility, arthritis, declining eyesight, and much more. Because of this, two key factors make aging in place possible; low maintenance and accessibility in terms of interior and exterior home design.  This is where the following CertainTeed low-maintenance siding and exterior trim products can help:

  • CertainTeed Polymer Siding
  • CertainTeed Vinyl Siding
  • CertainTeed Cellular PVC Trim

These CertainTeed products are not only great looking, but they are also low-maintenance. They never require painting or staining, they are not susceptible to the elements or termites, they will not rot or decay, they will not splinter or crack, and they require considerably less upkeep than other siding and trim options. CertainTeed products allow seniors to age in place without having to worry about exterior home maintenance.

“When we reach the age of retirement, it’s time for us to enjoy the finer things in life, whether it be rest and relaxation, traveling, recreation, or just spending more quality time with family,” says Peter Dachowski, President and CEO of CertainTeed Corporation. “We don’t want to be bothered with ongoing maintenance work on our house. CertainTeed is happy to serve the well-deserving active retired adult community with a wide variety of products that save time on maintenance and provide long-lasting beauty and performance.”

With thousands of Baby Boomers approaching retirement age, the Aging in Place movement is becoming one of the strongest trends influencing the housing industry today!

If you have any questions about Aging in Place, CertainTeed Low Maintenance Siding and Trim, or if you are interested in scheduling a free roofing consultation / siding consultation, please contact Garner Roofing by calling 410-753-2322 or visit GarnerRoof.com today!
