Hardie Siding, Replacement Windows, Patio Additions, Radiant Barriers & Roofing Services
Replacement windows are surprisingly reasonably priced, and worth investing in now, instead of waiting until you sell your home and letting someone else enjoy the energy savings benefits. From the materials we use and the glass packages we offer, to our dedication as an ENERGY STAR partner, we’ve got you covered when it comes to energy efficiency in replacement windows.
Unlike mass insulation, which only slows down or resists heat transfer, Radiant Barrier reflects heat. Heat, by natural law, always turns cold. The problem is how to keep the heat in during the winter and out during the summer. There are three ways in which heat goes from warm spaces to cold spaces:
- Conduction is direct heat flow through a solid object like a wall or ceiling.
- Convection is heat movement through air, occurring when air is warmed. The warm air expands, becoming less dense, and rises.
- Radiation is the movement of heat rays across air spaces from one warm object to another cooler object. The heat we feel from a wood stove or a quartz space heater is radiant heat.
Covering your attic insulation with Radiant Barrier holds the heat in the house during winter's cold. In summer, just like a space suit, Radiant Barrier reflects the sun's heat before it can warm up the insulation in your attic. When the insulation stays cooler, your house will stay cooler, thus reducing your electric bills in both summer and winter.
First Texas Siding and Windows offers our services throughout the the Houston area. Our trained staff can help you no matter what type of roof is needing attention, no matter how big or small. What type of re-roof or repair do you need work done on?
Not all roofs need to be replaced. Don't wait til the last minute to fix a repair, no matter how minor it may seem. The longer you wait to repair your roof, the larger the problem will get with time. Not only will you end up spending more money in the end, you are putting everyone in your home in danger due to a roof that isn't stable, or resistant to high winds and rain. If you fix your roof sooner rather than later, you have a less chance of mold, cracks, leaking, and even your roof collapsing.
Make sure you choose a professional contractor for your job. You may be able to find someone on the side to fix your roof for cheap, but the quality of the work won't match what we can do for you and you will not be offered a warranty.
Don't let getting your roof replaced intimidate you. First Texas Siding and Windows will walk you through all of the steps and make it a simple process. Most roof replacements in the Houston area are because of storm damage. Storm damage can be from hail, wind, tornadoes or any other natural disaster out of our control.
Give us a call about your roofing needs. We will be gald to answer any questions you might have.
