Gutters are vital to protect your home from water damage. Their purpose is to collect roof water at the roofline and safely carry it down to the ground and away from your homes foundation.

There is no 100% maintenance free gutter protection in existence. Our Permaflow Gutter Protection comes with a 10 year clog free warranty against your gutters and downspouts clogging. With anything there may be some maintenance. For example roofs with large valleys collect debris and large clumps slide down the roof onto the gutter and will not naturally blow away and will require cleaning.

The short answer is no, however lets explain. Ice damming or icicles are caused by heat loss from the attic area causing the underside of the roof to get warm and melt snow. The melted snow runs down the roof until it gets to the overhangs or soffit areas. These areas are going to be cold since there is no heat loss below them, this caused the water to freeze at the edge of the roof causing ice dams or in the gutters causing icicles.

First thing would be to ensure the attic has proper ventilation to allow cool air in and for warm air to escape. Second, we want to make sure there is proper air sealing around any ceiling penetrations and confirm the attic insulation meets a minimum R-Value as defined by local code. Third if there is still a problem with ice we can install De-Icing cables with a sensor to automatically turn on and melt away snow and ice during winter. De-Icing cables require a GFCI weatherproof outlet to be installed in the soffit to work properly. This must be done by a licensed electrician.

This can be several things.

This is caused by condensation. The same thing that happens to a cold beverage on a hot day. The cold glass collects the humidity from the air inside the home and it will build up on the bottom of the glass pane where it’s the coldest. This is a major problem on old windows that are not thermally efficient. This can also happen on new efficient windows when temperatures outside are very cold and the humidity inside is very high. It’s recommended to have inside humidity around 15% in the winter to prevent this.

You have three solutions; first Andersen makes a Tilt Wash Conversion Kit to transform your current window into a modern day 400 series Tilt Wash without the need to remove the existing frame or install new interior trim and siding outside. Second a new replacement window can be installed inside the existing frame. Third a full frame window can be installed to completely replace the window down to the rough opening. This method is the most expensive and invasive but it is the best way to insure 100% air and water sealing and integration with the water management system.

Although this is possible its not recommended. Modern door frames are designed to match up with the new door panels and typically do not offer a good seal if retrofitted. Also the cost of materials and labor to replace and old frame is typically more than just installing a whole new door unit complete with frame and door panel.

We can replace the sliding patio door a hinged version. This will give you a full clear opening when both panels are open.
