Spray on Siding. Wait. What?

NEVER PAINT AGAIN? Is spray on siding the siding solution you’ve been looking for?  If you never want to have to paint your house again....maybe it is. Made from a special mix of resins and polymers, liquid siding is a vinyl like compound that can be sprayed directly onto your home. It provides all the protection of paint and other siding options, yet lasts for thirty years or more (hence no re-painting!) and won’t substantially alter the look of your home like more traditional vinyl and aluminum siding materials can. If you’re tired of regular paint jobs or the maintenance and upkeep that comes with vinyl and aluminum siding materials, spray on siding is the answer.

When buying a home it is usually requisite to have the roof certified from inspection. Matter of fact, many lenders required this to be done before they will cut a check. In most states, a properly ventilated roof can last 20 years or more. In states where the snow is heavy, they often have to be replaced every five years. While having a secure roof is one of the most important parts of a home, it can also be a very expensive investment, especially if you bought a home under the guise that everything was on the up and up.

Though attractive and insulate, wood roofs are prone to problems that simply don’t exist with other materials. If you have a wood roof on your home, it will need regular attention if you want it to last for any decent length of time.
