All steep-slope roof systems (i.e., roofs with slopes of 25 percent or more) have five basic components: Roof covering: shingles, tile, slate or metal and underlayment that protect the sheathing from weather. Sheathing: boards or sheet material that are fastened to roof rafters to cover a house or building. Roof structure: rafters and trusses constructed to support the sheathing. Flashing: sheet metal or other material installed into a roof system's various joints and valleys to prevent water seepage. Drainage: a roof system's design features, such as shape, slope and layout that affect its ability to shed water.
A Slate Roof has a distinct look and charm. Most homeowners call us to repair their slate roof after a leak has been discovered or there are some missing slates. Many of these leaks go unnoticed until rotting wood is detected or mold starts to appear.

Vinyl siding, when properly manufactured and expertly installed, will provide insulation in a few important ways:
It will create structural integrity. Vinyl siding becomes a protective shell for your home. Vinyl siding will increase R-value. R-value refers to thermal resistance, and is one way of measuring the insulating capacity of any given material. Properly installed, vinyl siding will allow moisture to escape, permitting the walls to “breathe.” Issues associated with mildew and rot can be effectively averted. Vinyl siding will prevent air infiltration – – Noise or pollution will be significantly reduced.
Preferred Home Improvement is Proud to offer Quality Siding Products and Installation of James Hardie Siding including durable vinyl and fiber cement siding that is not only affordable but is manufactured to withstand the extreme and often ever changing weather conditions that homeowners experience.
HardiePlank® Lap Siding is the most popular brand of siding in America and can be found on over 4 million homes. With its strength, beauty and durability, HardiePlank® siding enhances and protects homes in all kinds of climates.
HardieShingle® siding has the same warm, authentic look as cedar shingles, yet it resists rotting, cracking and splitting. It's beautiful as a primary siding or as a complement to other styles of James Hardie® siding. Our shingle siding panels come in a variety of decorative edges, and expedite installation in larger areas.
For applications that call for vertical siding, HardiePanel® vertical siding is equal to our lap siding in value and long-lasting performance. Because of its structural strength, HardiePanel siding may be used as a shear panel. When combined with HardieTrim® planks, it can also help you achieve a board-and-batten look.
It is important to understand that the true value in windows is a combination of beauty, thermal efficiency, and performance. That is why we sell and install only triple-paned, thermal performance windows to your home, reducing maintenance and cleanup while saving energy and the environment. As often as you look through windows, you also look at them. Each and every detail matters.
Select beauty to complement your home as well as efficiency. Select slim, trim lines to create a graceful impression that emphasizes the view, not the window. Make sure that frames and sashes have a carpentered look. Choose locks and hardware that perfectly match the rest of the window, ones that practically disappear.
Thermal efficiency delivers value two ways—by providing real comfort year-round, and by helping save money on cooling and heating. We use only windows that are designed to deliver outstanding thermal performance. Honeycomb frames filled with insulating air spaces that significantly reduce condensation; Double weather-stripping that locks out wind and weather; Double- and triple-paned integral glazing systems; High performance Low “E” glazing systems to keep summer heat out and winter heat in better than any other system in its class, and to significantly reduce damaging UV rays.
Tilt-in sash windows save time and trouble. They make cleaning quick and easy. Solid vinyl construction never flakes, chips, or rots—never needs painting or puttying. One-piece fusion-welded sashes never warp, shrink, or swell. A good balance system makes sashes easy to open and keeps them in place and never need adjustment for years of normal use.

Where you live has a lot to do with the type of glass you should purchase. Thermal performance options like Low-E glass and argon gas can be added, but selecting the right combination is as important as selecting the right window configurations for your home. When a room faces the sun for the majority of the day, we recommend one type of Low-E glass for maximum solar control. Other rooms with less exposure can use less expensive Low-E glass. If your home has “cold spots” or “hot spots” we recommend using windows with insulating argon gas for maximum energy efficiency. If you have year-round shade from trees and shrubbery, you may not need a glass option that further reduces light transmittance, so your selection should be a literal reflection of your home and rooms' locations.
We will help you tailor and customize your home with just about any style of window, with hundreds of possible options. It is smart for you to take the time to become familiar with your options, and to ensure that the windows and doors you select for your home will be the right ones. We have helped many people select the right glass, the perfect options, and the best window styles for their needs. Integrated, slim-line lift rail allows you to more easily operate sashes Special beveled mainframe that offers a true brick-mold appearance that adds class and style Aluminum-reinforced, multi-cavity construction that provides additional thermal performance and structural integrity Full screens Brass Extras—optional brass locks and grids.
