Extreme temperatures can make working on the roof hazardous and uncomfortable for workers. For those who live in a climate where the temperatures generally cause the mercury to soar, choose a cooler time of year. Many homeowners opt to thave a roof replacement in the autumn. The crisp weather and the decline in home-renovation projects overall can make this a prime time to contract with a quality roofer.

For those who have the funds, this may be the opportunity to get two jobs done at once. A roofing project is no small undertaking, and homeowners are wise to get several referrals and investigate a variety of companies before settling on one. Review sites, such as Angie’s List, or simply word-of-mouth appraisals from friends and family members can help make choosing a roofer an easier decision.

Make Your Home and Landscape Less Susceptible to An essential aspect of landscape maintenance is insect control. Problem insects can affect the vigor of plants and landscapes, either through disease, insect feeding or other destructive activities. Insects can also invade the interior of a home in search of food, water and shelter, becoming a general nuisance. With the recent mild winter across the U.S., insect activity is occurring even earlier this year. This means there is a greater chance that homes and landscapes will be infested by pests this summer.

Take This Insulation Tour for a Real Energy Savings Trip Stop #1 - The Attic

* Look out for sagging insulation batts or gaps. * Are there any signs of moisture or mold on the insulation? * Make sure soffit vents are not covered by insulation to maintain airflow.

Stop #2 - The Basement

* Check insulation around the rim joists (where your first floor meets the basement foundation walls) for gaps. * Seal any penetrations that go through the basement ceiling to the floor above, including those for electrical and plumbing service. * Look for signs of moisture or mold on the insulation.

Stop #3 - The Crawl Space Spray foam insulation is an option worth considering that won’t sag or settle and has superior adhesion to overhead construction, such as ceilings.

Did you know that one-third of all air leakage in a home can be attributed to walls, floors and ceilings? You might think your home is well insulated, but if it has conventional air permeable fiberglass or cellulose insulation, gaps, seams or damage could compromise its performance. Taking a tour of your home’s insulation may not sound like much fun, but it could be a sound investment in energy and money savings. Here’s a checklist for the four key stops to make on your tour, courtesy of industry specialists:

* Make sure the floor above a crawlspace is well insulated to keep heat from escaping into the crawlspace and to make your floors more comfortable. * Check to make sure insulation has a moisture barrier or consider closed cell spray foam insulation option that can provide a built-in vapor barrier. * Check for signs of moisture or mold on the insulation.

Stop #4 - The Room Over the Garage

* Is the room too cold in the winter and too warm in the summer? It might benefit from spray foam insulation for complete air sealing and proper adhesion to the garage ceiling. * Look for sagging insulation batts and gaps. * Check for signs of moisture on the insulation.
