Every person wants to have the best home possible. If you want an appealing and energy-efficient home that will improve your mood and productivity then we can help. Gold Standard Restorations suggests four exterior remodeling projects that are perfect for this summer.
1. Cool Roof
Summer means heat, making your home warmer. This may force your air conditioning to work harder to maintain a cool and comfortable temperature. To prevent this from happening you can install a cool roof. We are a GAF Master Elite® contractor, putting us at the top 3% of all roofers, and allowing us to offer the full range of GAF products. This includes the GAF Timberline® Cool Series shingles.
These shingles have special granules that reflect the sun’s heat away. This keeps your attic cool, and your costs low because the air conditioner no longer needs to consume too much energy. Depending on your location, climate, and architecture, you can save up to 15% in cooling costs for your home.
2. Energy-Efficient Windows
If your windows are old and are need of constant repair, then you should consider a window replacement in Tinley Park, IL. Studies show that up to 23% of the energy used to cool buildings is lost through non energy-efficient windows. You could be paying higher energy bills than you should be.
Gold Standard Restorations can install replacement windows from Andersen®. These windows feature Low-E4® glass that is up to 56% more energy-efficient than ordinary dual pane glass. This can help reduce your utility bills and increase your home’s comfort level this summer.
3. Insulated Siding
For complete energy efficiency, you need to improve your siding, as well. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, if your home is about five to ten years old, you likely have one of the 46 million under-insulated homes in the US.
If your siding is not up to par, we can install fiber cement siding from James Hardie or vinyl siding from Mastic Home Exteriors. Both options offer superior insulation, while possessing distinct advantages. Our trained professionals will assess your unique circumstances to help select the right siding in Crystal Lake, IL, for your home.
4. Sunny Skylights
While the sun’s heat is a problem, you can benefit from the sun’s light if your home isn’t energy-efficient. Natural light brightens up your home’s atmosphere, lifts your mood, decreases stress, and brings out the true beauty of interior décor. It can also help you save money on electrical lights. The new generation skylights we install from VELUX® will bring your plenty of sunlight while still providing insulation through their VELUX ThermoTechnology™.
These projects will make your home more comfortable, beautiful, and save you money on energy bills. Gold Standard Restorations can help make your home a more enjoyable place through our top-notch products and award-winning customer service.
