Whether your roof is brand new or 15 years old, you should keep this list at hand. Identifying these problems early can mean the difference between a small repair and a large remodel.

Beware of Storm Chasers

Beware of Storm Chasers

What is a storm chaser?

Storm chasers are companies that follow severe weather from area to area, completing home repairs (generally roofs and siding) that are damaged by hail and wind. They collect homeowners’ insurance claim checks in payment for their services, complete the work (often shoddily) before moving on to the next storm ravaged area. Here in Chicago, we are prone to hailstorms, and storm chasers generally quickly follow any such event. They generally go door-to-door in storm damaged areas, and may advertise themselves as insurance recovery experts or specialists in insurance restoration. (The term “Storm Chaser” can also be used to describe a person who follows storms in order to research, photograph, or simply experience a weather phenomenon. This type of storm chaser is entirely different and is not of any concern to a homeowner!)

Why are storm chasers bad?

The first step of a storm chaser is to ask the homeowner to sign a contract allowing their company to negotiate with homeowner’s insurance company. By signing these documents, homeowners may be waiving their right to any decision making regarding their repairs or replacement. They also lose control over the insurance settlement, and the entire check of the payment may legally need to be signed over to the storm chaser- regardless of the quality or quantity of work completed. The homeowner may lose some control over materials used, leaving the storm chaser free to cut corners in order to increase their profit. Most importantly, warranty repairs can be very difficult to obtain as most storm chasers leave the area as soon as the storm “plays out.” These companies are generally gone long before warranty issues arise. The company is certainly not going to return from Florida or Ohio to repair a problem with their work. To make matters even more difficult, some storm chasers lease local company names so the appear to be local. Once they complete their work in the area, they leave. The local company is then responsible for the warranty work. Of course, the volume of warranty work is often so great the local company ends up out of business, leaving the homeowner with problems.

Handling Window Condensation in Des Plaines, IL

Des Plaines is popularly known as the ‘City of Destiny.’ It is home to over 55,000 people, most of these individuals are homeowners who often experience problems with window condensation. There are several factors that can contribute to this problem, and the window experts at Harris Exteriors & More will be able to help you if you commonly see this issue occurring in your home.

Window condensation is a very serious case and can cause serious damage over time to the window frame. This issue happens when cool, dry air comes into contact with the warm moist air. The modern technology used in making new windows allows the warm air to get inside while cold air is locked outside the room. Moisture inside the room could come from the moist air from unvented clothes dryers, hot showers, the steam from a cooking area or from other processes that generate moisture. This air condenses, forming fog when it comes into contact with the window glasses. However, this does not allow the warm air to escape.

Harris Exterior & More professionals have the expertise, knowledge, and skills to give all homes the help they need to prevent this annoying problem. To avoid window condensation during the onset of winter, we at Harris Exterior & More install modern windows and ensure no unwanted moist air in the house can effect the glass or framing materials. We have the skills to detect the devices causing moisture and recommend the right way to handle these problems.

Attic Insulation in Arlington Heights

Arlington Heights is among the fastest developing in Cook County in northern Illinois. It has many gorgeous homes that are well taken care of by homeowners. However, one aspect of a home that many people tend to overlook or neglect is the space in the attic. If this area is not properly insulated, it can cause you to have skyrocketing energy bills, especially during the cooler months of the year. When the attic isn't properly insulated, warm air from inside your home will rise up and go straight through the roof. This makes your heater work harder to keep your family warm and toasty, thus causing you to have very high energy bills in the winter.
 
Most homes in Arlington Heights are kept looking fairly modern. They have new windows, doors, siding, and roofing installed. So, if you are a homeowner here, don't neglect the very top of your home just because you think it doesn't matter since nobody can see what's up there anyway. You need to protect every square inch of your greatest investment - your home - with the right insulating materials.

At Harris Exteriors & More, we have a team of insulation experts who will be able to inspect the top of your home and determine how much material will be needed, how long it will take to install, how much it will cost you, and what your energy savings will be. 

Give us a call today or visit our Streamwood, IL showroom for more information about attic insulation!

We at Harris Exteriors & More always advise our clients that when selecting the right windows for their new home, or even old houses, they should look at the style of the windows, as well as how energy efficient they are going to be. You don't want to get new windows installed that are going to let a lot of conditioned air from your home get out. This will cost you a fortune on your home's heating and cooling bills each month.

Here are some tips to help you when picking out new windows for your home:
 
•    Window type: - Before settling on a certain window style, consider the type of material used to make them. We at Harris Exteriors & More have a wide range of durable and classy windows made from vinyl, wood, aluminum, and more.
•    Window design:- You want to be sure that you choose an attractive window style that complements the rest of your home's architecture
•    Projected cost:- You need to be sure that you aren't going with the "cheapest" company since they may also offer "cheap" quality materials and labor
•    U-value for the window: - This is the rate at which heat transfer occurs within your house. This will also influence the air ventilation in the house, so you need to have a good understanding of this before settling on a replacement window.

The size of your home, the material you choose, and the amount of labor required for the job are going to influence how much you have to pay. Don't always go with the "cheapest" company since they may not always use the best quality of materials. Also, even the most "expensive" company might not offer the customer service that you are looking for. You need to find a company in the middle who can provide exceptional services and materials that are going to make your home look as best as possible.

There are several different types of siding materials you can choose from, including: wood, vinyl, aluminum, or even stone veneers. The choice is up to you, and the siding company you go with should be able to explain the benefits of each to you in great detail so you can make an informed buying decision.

Handling Ice Dams in Downers Grove, IL

Downers Grove is a beautiful suburb close to the city of Chicago. It is home to over 49,000 people, and everyone living here knows how brutal the winters can be. They are filled with snow, ice, and terribly cold temperatures. That being said, it's not uncommon for ice dams to form along your roofline. If this has happened at your home, you're going to need to get the ice removed before it causes serious damage to your roofing materials, your gutters, and even to your home's siding.
 
A strongly built home is still no match for ice dams. These nasty frozen build-ups are rarely taken into consideration by most roofers. Only a few service providers will advise their clients on these issues. Harris Exteriors and More is reputed for their comprehensive services that are based on quality information regarding all types of issues that could occur on top of your home. When installing a roof, we will let you know what materials are going to be most well-suited for ice dams - i.e. ones that aren't going to be damaged so easily. They will stand up to the cold and horrible winter conditions that often plague this area of the state.

Ice dams are caused by the heavy falling snow during the winter. Ice collects on the roof and runs slowly down the roof due to the inside, warm air coming from inside your home. Unfortunately, the running ice could easily stop at the overhangs since the temperatures here are lower than those on top of the home. This causes ice to refreeze, resulting into ice dams. The eventual effects are damage to the roof, which is evident by the various water spots seen on your ceiling, and they can also damage gutters and your siding. We can take care of your ice dams and any damage that was done to the outside of your home.

Dealing with Ice Dams in Lombard, IL

Lombard is a nice suburban village located close to the Windy City. Harris Exteriors & More is proud to provide homeowners in this area with the exterior services they need to keep their property looking great throughout the year. We offer modern and reliable ice dam control, window replacement, entry doors, siding, and roofing among other home improvement services at an unbeatable price.
 
Protecting your family and your belongings is a great reason for building and maintaining a strong and secure house. However, regardless of how well your home is built, you could still have problems with ice dams, especially when things start to thaw out in the spring. Ice dams have been known to cause serious damage to a home's roof and gutter system. They are caused by heavy snowfall and ice during the cold, freezing winter. There really aren't any Lombard homes that are exempt from the frequent freezing weather. Therefore, there is a need for reliable ice dam control services in the suburb to protect against leaking roofs which are a result of this nasty melting ice.
 
Ice on your roof could slowly start melting along your roofline when the warm air from inside leaks out through the attic. This melts the ice down the roof. However, the water may suddenly stop at the overhang due to refreezing since the temperatures here are lower than the top of your roof which gets sunlight and warm air from the attic. This causes the ice dams to form and damage your roof and gutters.
 
Harris Exteriors & More is here to save you the agony of living in a home with this type of condition. We will ensure that your roof stays strong and durable without any ice dams. We advise you not to chip off the ice that has collected- this might appear a cheap solution, but this can cause a lot of problems, and the ice could fall and hurt you or a loved one. Our experts will seal your attic and improve attic ventilation. This goes a long way to ensure that ice dams don't collect on your roof since the outside and the underside air will now have similar temperatures.

Window Condensation in Elk Grove Village, IL

The affluent suburb of Elk Grove Village is found in the northeastern part of Illinois. The neighborhood is home to many residents. Over 33, 000 residents live and work here. From vintage to modern homes, the suburb has always had many property options for homeowners. It is for this reason that homeowners in the suburb have been looking for quality home improvement services. Harris Exteriors & More has established itself to be the ultimate solution for many in the neighborhood when it comes to windows, roofing, siding, doors, and more.

Window condensation is caused by the contact between warm moist air and the cooler, dry air. With energy efficient windows, the warm air is kept inside and cool air outside. If the moist air from unvented dryers and cooking areas or hot showers in the house come in contact with the window glass, the moist air forms some fog and condenses. This is not a big problem for you if you have energy efficient windows installed. With older window styles, this is not the case since it could result in energy loss from your home.

To help you get rid of the unwanted window condensation, Harris Exteriors & More experts can install replacement windows for you that are much more efficient. Harris Exteriors & More will help to install or repair energy efficient windows or glass if the airtight seal is broken. This is a situation where you find condensation between two layers of any insulated windows. We will get your temperatures variations stabilized to avoid the unwanted window condensation.

Controlling Ice Dams in Elgin, IL

Elgin is a beautiful place to live in northern Illinois. This is an area located in Cook and Kane County. Over 110,000 people love and live in the Elgin area. Residents here need various home improvement services to maintain their classy homes. From interiors to the stunning exteriors, Elgin homeowners love quality and affordable services that fit into their spending budget. Harris Exteriors & More has established itself as a leading exteriors service provider in the neighborhood. We have reliable home repair skills to help in controlling ice dams in your home. This goes a long way to help you preserve the quality of your home's roof and siding.
 
A well-built roof protects you and the rest of your home. However, lack of inspections, maintenance, and heavy snows could mean a lot when it comes to the creation of unwanted problems like ice dams collecting on the roof. This causes damaged shingles, roofing panels and boards, ruined gutters, and water damaged siding. Ice dams are commonly caused by the heavy snowfalls that occur during the bad, cold and freezing winter weather. With low winter temperatures taking over the entire Elgin neighborhood, it could be a devastating time for most homeowners. Well, Harris Exteriors & More could save you the problems associated with these dams, such as leaking roofs that may be a result.
 
When ice collects on the roof tops, the warm air from inside the house will leak slowly through the attics, thus melting down the ice. Unfortunately, the water may refreeze again on the overhangs, causing the ice dams to form again. This eventually damages roofs, causing deterioration and leaks.
 
Avoid dilapidated roofs- let us take care of the ice dam issues. Harris Exteriors & More is not only experienced but professionally trained to be able to handle ice dams. While most homeowners opt to stand up on a ladder and chip the ice out on their own, this may not only damage the roof but also exposes you to the risk of getting injured by the falling ice and bitter cold. Let us take care of the work for you. Get reliable ice dam services from Harris Exteriors & More.

New Roof in Arlington Heights, IL

My experience with Harris is excellent, very professional, clean and on time. They replaced my roof faster than they had quoted me and cleaned up everything when they were finished.

I would recommend Harris Exteriors to any one.
