3 Home Improvement Tips for Spring

We're just two weeks out from the first day of spring! Ready to freshen up your house? Outside of spring cleaning, here are three home improvement tips for spring:

1. Repair your gutters

Loose and leaky gutters make for improper drainage. This can lead to flooding in your home's basement or crawl space. Before spring rains begin, check your gutters for debris and make sure all downspouts lead away from the foundation.

2. Examine your roof

Take a look around your property and up at your roof to see if any shingles were lost or damaged over the winter. Keep in mind that the hot summer sun can take a toll on roof shingles. Ones that look cracked and worn now need to be replaced before summer arrives.

3. Clean your air conditioners

Pretty soon you're going to be turning off the heat and pumping up the AC. Clean the coils of your air conditioning system for superior performance during the warmer months.

If you need help with your spring home improvement projects, turn to Superior Windowland. Call us today at (203) 948-7770 for a FREE estimate.

How to Save on Energy Costs with Spray Foam Insulation

If you're looking for ways to make your home more energy efficient, it's time to consider spray foam insulation. Superior Windowland's expert technicians have done extensive research on the insulation industry, and we found that spray foam is the wave of the future.

Spray foam insulation can help you save up to 40 percent on utilities.  Here's how to save on energy costs with spray foam insulation:

1. Insulate your garage ceiling

This area of your home lets in cold air, loud noises, and even harmful fumes. Superior Windowland can easily add spray foam insulation to your garage ceiling! After all, we are a leader in the spray foam insulation.

2. Insulate your rim joists

The rim joists are located where your house sits on its foundation. This one-inch space can leak cold air and moisture. Allow us to create an air-tight seal with spray foam insulation.

3. Insulate your attic floor

Too many attics are not air-tight. A leaky attic could be costing you thousands of dollars.With FOAM-LOK™ insulation from Superior Windowland, you can save that money instead of wasting it.

These savings are the result of a primary feature of spray foam, in that it does not sag, settle, or shrink over time. Spray foam insulation is spray applied to fill cavities of any shape providing a continuous air barrier—and it stays in place.
