Roof Care & Remodeling

Without a doubt, the condition of your roof is critical to maintaining a safe, secure home. Not only does your roof protect your family from the wind and rain, but it protects your home’s structure. Therefore, it’s helpful to check your roof’s integrity every year.

We’re happy to come out and check its condition. In this way, you can make an informed decision about extending the life of your roof. Whether this means you want to restore or replace your roof, there are many factors to consider. They include:

The Materials Contained in Your Shingles

Specifically, the materials we use to make your shingles have various lifespans. For instance, asphalt shingles last 15-25 years. Conversely, metal shingles stay effective between 40-60 years, based on whether the materials are copper, steel, or aluminum. Finally, wood shake shingles have a lifespan of 30-50 years, whether pine or cedar.

Extreme Weather

In the Chicago area, we experience some extreme weather. Of course, some homes are more vulnerable to storms than others. It’s helpful to check the condition of your roof after major weather events like tornadoes, blizzards, and hail storms. This way, you can nip relatively small roof problems before they become full-blown disasters.

Roof Leaks

Understandably, a roof leak needs immediate attention. The sooner you address this problem, the better, from both a financial and structural perspective. Either way, one of our most crucial home care remodeling tips is to fix roof leaks ASAP.

Home Remodeling Tips for Windows

Without a doubt, windows get lots of wear and tear in the Chicago area. Snowy winters, heavy rains, and powerful winds take their toll. As a result, it is important to put home remodeling tips for windows into practice. Here is our advice on protecting these assets.

Pay Attention to Frames and Panes

Certainly, any damaged wood around your window frames and panes requires replacement. Time is of the essence with this repair job, because damaged frames and panes require a whole new window installment.

Check for Drafts

Once a year, it helps to do a draft inspection of all your windows. Of course, it pays to properly seal the inside of windows with caulk or window sealant. Afterward, perform a check of how effective your windows block drafts are. Stand a foot away from the perimeter of the window. If you feel air blowing from that distance, a window replacement may be necessary. Neglecting this problem results in big energy bills, so it makes sense to replace drafty windows promptly.

Improve Air Ventilation

Moisture buildup from cooking, laundry, and bathing causes condensation on windows. Therefore, it helps to install fans, vents, and dehumidifiers in your home as a means to keep windows in top condition.

Home Remodeling Tips for Siding, Soffit, & Fascia

One of the home remodeling tips often ignored involves soffit and fascia maintenance. Specifically, soffits are installed on the underside of roof overhangs. They protect your home from the elements and give it a complete, polished look. A fascia board runs along the lower edge of the roof and keeps moisture away from your home.

For the same reason that your roof needs regular inspections, your soffit and fascia require similar attention. Here are some signs these parts of your home need attention:

  • Cracked or flaking paint
  • Pest infestations in your roof or attic
  • Pooled water in the space beneath your roof
  • Clean gutters that leak
  • Poor ventilation inside the home
  • Missing or broken boards

Again, routine maintenance of soffits and fascia boards keeps your home in good repair.

Vinyl Siding Installation & Design

Vinyl siding is energy efficient and eco-friendly and should be your first choice for an exterior remodel. If you are experiencing any trouble with the vinyl siding on your home currently, Pro-Line is happy to perform vinyl siding replacement.

How We Install Soffit & Fascia

When installing a soffit piece on your home, you want to make sure it’s done by professionals. The purchased supplies are not precut and must be customized for each house.

Are Your Soffit and Fascia Showing Wear?

You may not spend much time looking at your soffit and fascia. Yet, if you examine them, you may notice that they have problems and imperfections.
