Home Exterior Storm Remodel

We've got nothing against the insurance industry, but it's no secret that some insurance companies are difficult to deal with when seemingly-covered losses occur.
Homeowners can be at a disadvantage when losses happen because most of us don't spend all day surrounded by insurance jargon. Additionally, catastrophic events can be disorienting and the primary concern is usually the safety of one's own family, with securing fair treatment from insurance companies coming in a distant second.
That's why it's important for homeowners to find an ally in the claims process. One of the first calls you should make after storm damage occurs is to a reputable, local contractor that specializes in insur ...

Infographic: How Home Gutters Work

Gutters perform an important function for your home by protecting your foundation from the harmful effects of pooling water. Without gutters, moisture would collect around your home after every rainfall. Over time, consistent moisture can cause bowing, cracks, and eventually complete failure of the foundation.
Gutters only work if they can keep up with the precipitation that Mother Nature throws at them. If your home's gutters can't efficiently gather water and carry it away from your house, you'll run into leaking and craking basement walls. That means clogged gutters are about as effective as no gutters at all.

If you find that your home's gutters aren't performing, contact LeafFilter ...

New homeowners—whether building a home or purchasing an older home—have a lot of decisions to make. Oftentimes, a disproportionate focus is on aesthetic considerations, such as picking out what color and style of brick or siding to use on the exterior and choosing flooring, lighting and cabinetry for the interior. And those buying an older home have to prioritize what they want to improve most, from installing new carpet to adding a fresh coat of paint or getting a new roof.
With so many decisions, the functionality of items like gutter protection often get overlooked.
But for savvy homeowners, installing gutter guards wi ...

When Perfect Home Restoration looked for shingles to use on their roof replacement and roof repair jobs, they chose GAF shingles because of their quality, durability, and affordability.
Weather in Northeast Ohio requires a shingle be durable. Not only are peeling and missing shingles unisghtly, they're also the precursor to a leaky roof and wet carpet.
Ever notice dark, black streaks on shingles? That's airborn algae growth which spreads rapidly under warm, wet conditions like and Ohio spring. That's why Perfect Home Restoration uses GAF shingles infused with zinc and copper that prevent algae growth and keep your roof looking streak-free.

Although not available in quite as many colors and materials as roofing shingles, homeowners have a lot of options when buying gutters.

In addition to traditional gutters, homeowners can also opt for gutter protection systems. These covers and screens are installed over the gutter to prevent the gutters from getting clogged by birds, insects, leaves, pine needles, twigs, seed pods, shingle grit and other debris that can fall into the gut ...

The best way to keep your gutters flowing freely is to keep debris from ever getting in.

There are two basic truths Perfect Home Restoration wants you to know about storm damage and the insurance industry.
First, storm damage is most likely covered under your homeowner’s insurance policy. That means you’ve already paid for the repairs to your roof and siding, you just need to ask them to pay up.
Second, not all reputable roofers specialize in insurance work, and not all roofers that specialize in insurance work are reputable. The term “storm chaser” is applied as a pejorative to roofers that chase severe weather events across a region with little to no concern for quality of work or customer service. They roll into town to take advantage of distressed h ...
