Install New James Hardie Siding
One of the best things we can think of to protect your home during the winter months is to install James Hardie Siding with Good Guys. We’re a James Hardie preferred contractor which means we’re committed to installing this high-quality fiber cement siding according to the company’s exacting standards.
Hardie siding is known for its durability. It stands up to everything homeowners encounter on Long Island. Summer heat, rain and wind storms, pests, fire and of course winter cold. This product is specifically engineered to adapt to the individual climates where they’re installed. Here on Long Island that means it is made to protect you from wet, freezing conditions. Unlike vinyl siding, Hardie siding won’t crack in cold weather.
Beef Up Your Insulation
If you’re concerned about rising heating bills a good place to combat it is by adding or installing insulation. Good Guys’ insulation of choice is Tripolymer injection foam. This is a foam that can be sprayed in wall cavities and can supplement existing insulation. It will improve the energy efficiency and it’s ecofriendly. Tripolymer foam is 100 percent biodegradable and can insulate hard to reach places such as pipe chases, which are false walls often built to hide pipes.
Install New Windows with Good Guys and Marvin
One of the reasons your home may be getting drafty is that you have aging windows and doors. It may be time to replace them. Good Guys can improve your energy efficiency with Marvin and Integrity by Marvin windows and doors.
