A Tree’s Impact on Your Oklahoma Home

The Impact of A Tree on Your Oklahoma Property

The trees surrounding your home gives off the perfect shade and eye appeal. But with each season, it goes through many different processes that can have an impact on your Oklahoma home. From the first bloom to the changing of colors, the trees go through a very interesting transformation. As it is interesting to learn about the transformation, it is important to understand how it affects your home.

Rain water spilling over the gutter system due to getting clogged with dirt, leaves and other debris.

Spring Into Sunshine

Spring season is like a fresh breath of the new air. The temperatures start to become warmer, the days start to feel longer, and the trees start to bud for blooming. It’s the perfect time to get out into the sunshine after being cooped up all winter long.

Spring is a busy season for trees. After losing their leaves during Winter, they begin to grow and reproduce new leaves. The trees drop leaves, seeds, and other organic material on the ground. The debris from your trees builds up and clogs your open style gutter. As mosquitoes and insects like to live in the shaded trees, when the open style gutters become clogged with the leaves and seed, it can cause a problem with them living out of them.

Ordinary open-style guttering naturally collects, leaves, acorns, twigs, and debris, which can become clogged.

Summer Storm

With temperatures becoming hot and humid, we use our trees to shade areas to keep cool from the hot sun. Trees are mainly in full bloom with the leaves hanging off branches. With trees being in full bloom, the growth of a tree slows down. All of the buds containing next year’s leaves are mainly set by mid-summer.

 

Open guttering can clog with leaves, twigs and other debris. This home suffered damage which caused rot to develop around the eaves and soffit, eventually pulling the guttering off of the home.

Leaves Fall, Gutters Clog

As the days grow shorter and cooler air rolls in, the color of Oklahoma’s trees change from bright green to the brilliant fall shades of orange, yellow, red, and brown. The tree starts to prepare for survival mode with the leaves falling off the trees to prepare themselves for the Winter months to come.

 

Regular guttering maintenance is required when trees are near your Oklahoma property. Seeds and leaves can clog your gutters, which can lead to costly repairs.

Winter Ready Your Home

For the trees to survive through Winter, they need to get rid of all their leaves. While we like to hibernate in our homes through the cold months, the trees go through their own hibernation called Dormancy. They begin this process in the Fall with trees losing their leaves. They need to get rid of the leaves so they can survive. While in Spring and Summer, the tree loses a lot of water during photosynthesis. So when Winter comes around, they are no longer able to get enough water to replace it.

 

Over time, your clogged open-style guttering can pull away from your home. Allowing the winter ice and rain to enter your home.

3 Steps to Identify Wind Damage to Your Roof

How Does Wind Damage Your Roof?

When it comes to wind damage, the corners and perimeter of your home are susceptible to the most damage. Wind can cause shingles to become loose and repeated wind exposure can lead to a chain peeling effect that starts at the corners. Flying debris is one of the most common causes of damage to your roof, flying debris can scratch, gouge, and crack your roofing materials. Once any part of the roof is damaged, rainwater can seep into your home and cause costly water damage. Be sure NOT to ignore wind damage to your home.

Signs You Need a New Roof

Home Inspections

The life expectancy of your roof can vary. Different variables like climate and weather conditions, such as snow and hail in the midwest can cut the lifespan of all types of roofs. By knowing the warning signs that you need a new roof, you can be proactive and protect your most valued asset, your home. We recommend yearly home inspections in order to eliminate damage that can be caused from your roof underperforming.

Inspecting the Inside of Your Home

Start inside your home by checking the attic. If you see light coming through, wet spots or stains, that is a sign that your roof needs some attention. Leak stains can also appear on the ceiling of rooms within the home; check for bubbling, peeling or swelling paint, if there is moisture getting in, your roof could be the culprit.

 

Blistering or Bubbling Paint can be a sign of excess moisture in your home from improper roof ventilation or a leak.

Inspect the Outside of Your Home

Looking at the exterior, start with the shingles. One sign that you need to address your roof is if you see mold, moss, or mildew on the shingles. Moss on the shingles means moisture is collecting. Curling, missing or granule loss of shingles are another sign. Shingles act as a layer of protection for your home, if they are missing or damaged it can increase the opportunity for both interior and exterior damage. Not having proper ventilation in your roofing system will also wreak havoc on your home.

 

Granule loss on a shingle due to hail damage.

Roof discoloration is another warning sign. If you see discoloration in the shingles it could be lost granules or algae forming. Losing granules can be a result from the natural aging of your roof or a result of  hail or wind damage. Algae forming is a result of moisture collecting on the roof from the vents and looks like streaks on the roof.

If you see drooping in any areas of your roof, especially in the valleys, you need to call to get an estimate as soon as possible. Make sure your flashing is still intact, it is very important that the seams of your roof are sealed. Don’t forget to check around the chimney and vents, these are another common problem area on roofing systems.

4 Costly Damages Caused by Poorly Functioning Gutters

Underperforming Gutters can Cause Serious Damage

When you compare the damage caused by poorly functioning gutters to the price of LeafGuard® Brand Gutters, the cost is relatively cheap. Listed below are the 4 most expensive damages caused by underperforming gutter systems.

 

Foundation Damage

Clogged gutters can cause rainwater to overflow and pool on the ground below next to your foundation. When your home does not have a fully functioning gutter system, the continuous pooling of water can cause soil erosion, cracks in the foundation, walls and baseboards and sagging floors. According to Angie’s list, foundation repair can cost anywhere from $250 to $12,000.

 

Soil erosion and pooling water around your foundation from poorly functioning gutters will weaken it, eventually causing foundation cracks or a shifting or settling foundation.
Soil erosion and pooling water around your foundation from poorly functioning gutters will weaken it, eventually causing foundation cracks or a shifting or settling foundation.

 

Siding Damage

Your gutters move a lot of water. An inch of rainfall on a typical 1,000 sq. ft. roof sends over 600 gallons of water into your gutters and downspouts. If that rainwater has no where to drain, it can spill over or behind the gutter and down the exterior wall of your home damaging and or warping the siding, eventually leading to mold growth. Depending on the type of siding, replacement can cost anywhere from a few hundred to thousands of dollars. 

 

Pictured is mold growing on the siding of a home due to continuous exposure to overflowing rainwater from the gutters.

 

Roof Damage

Your roof is the first line of defense in protecting your home and one of they key players in helping protect it is your gutters. A functioning gutter systems job is to capture water from your roof and safely direct it away from your home. When your gutters are clogged and cannot drain properly water can overflow and pool back onto the roof. Over time this puts your roof at risk for leaks, cracks, roof sags and shingle damage which can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars in repair cost.

 

If your gutters are clogged, rainwater can pool back onto the roof. This puts your roof at risk for leaks that can result in costly water damage.

 

Injuries

One of the largest health risks is climbing dangerous ladders to clean out clogged gutters. Every year more than 500,000 people are treated for ladder-related injuries and a trip to the emergency room can cost anywhere from $150-$3,000.

 

Climbing ladders to clean out your gutters can be a dangerous task.

5 Steps to Take When Winterizing Your Home

Key Steps to Winterize Your Oklahoma Home

Winterizing your home properly can ensure that your interior temperature stays comfortable during the cold months while maximizing energy efficiency. The most common causes of energy loss during the winter are air leaks and insufficient insulation.  Here are a few key steps that we recommend to winterize your home.

1. Inspect your roof. Look for damaged, loose or missing shingles that may cause leaks as well as shingles that are curling, lifting or buckling. Make note of any worn-out seals around vent pipes and chimneys as well. You may want to consider having your roof inspected by a professional. At Home Solutions of Iowa, we offer free exterior home maintenance inspections.

Shingles that are curled, buckling or missing granules could be a sign you need a new roof.

 

2. Clean out your gutters and fix downspouts. Now that the temperature has started to drop, you want to make sure to clean out your gutters and downspouts. Now is the time to clean and leaves and debris blocking them to allow water to run freely from your roof to your gutters and away from your home. If you are looking for a maintenance free gutter solution, LeafGuard® Brand Gutters are the answer. Get a free estimate today.

3. Seal any air leaks. If there are cracks, joints, leaky ducts, or other openings in your home that allow warm air to leak out and cold air to seep in, your heating system will be forced to work overtime.

Check around windows and doors to make sure that the caulk around the framework has not dried and cracked causing air to leak.

 

4. Improve your home’s insulation for better comfort and energy efficiency. Heat can escape easily through a poorly insulated attic as it rises to the upper levels of your home. By upgrading your attic insulation, you can keep your space comfortable and warm.

5. Check your doors and windows.  During the colder months, you want to make sure that your doors and windows are airtight. Check windowpanes and storm windows for cracks. Replace any that are damaged and apply caulk around your windows. You can also apply weather stripping around your doors, which is inexpensive and can be found at most hardware stores.

Does Your Roof Have Wind Damage?

Strong Winds Can Leave Your Roof Vulnerable to Damage

More than 60% of all homes in the U.S. are vulnerable to damage from high winds generated by storms and heavy rains. (Source: The Institute for Business & Home Safety)

Strong winds that typically accompany storms can cause shingles to crack, bend, or fly off, leaving your roof and the interior of your home vulnerable to leaks or further damage. We have compiled a checklist that can help you determine if you have roof damage.

Blown off shingles
Blown off shingles may expose your home to structural damage, mold, and mildew. Contact LeafGuard® of Oklahoma for a solution.

What to Do if Your Roof has Wind Damage

If you have roof damage caused by wind and/or flying debris, it’s important to get it fixed immediately. The longer you wait, the more damage will occur. Roof replacement and roof repair cost a lot less when you don’t have to add in the other costs of repairing leaks and water damage. Contact your insurance agent to assess the situation and determine whether you should file a claim. Thoroughly document any damage that occurred and keep receipts for all work, including any you do yourself, such as covering windows or holes in your roof to facilitate reimbursement if you file a claim. Many policies will cover these expenses when submitted with a claim.

Most wind damage to a roof starts on the edge.

Choosing a Roof Contractor

After any storm, there will be “fly-by-night” outfits going door to door and claiming they are legitimate roofing companies. Most of the time, they do the work quickly and get out of town even faster before you have a chance to address any issues or problems, leaving you little recourse. Always ask to see their business licenses, proof of insurance, certifications, permanent business address, and Better Business Bureau rating.

Hiring the Best Exterior Contractor in Oklahoma

Introduction
Searching for the best home exterior contractor can be a daunting task. We understand that weeding through local companies can get time-consuming. The last thing you would want to do is pay an unqualified person for something as close to your heart as your home.

If you were to hire an assistant or an employee for a company you own. You wouldn’t want to quickly hire the first person you come across. You need to be sure this is the best person for the job. We recommend you take the same approach when selecting a home improvement contractor. Here are some steps in finding the most qualified company for the job.

Step 1
Recommendations and referrals. Word of mouth is always a great way to get first-hand knowledge of a customers experience with a company.  You could make a post on your social media page asking for recommendations, or call up relatives and friends.

Online reviews are a great way to get to past customers critiques. Google, Facebook, Yelp, Angie’s list, and Better Business Bureau reviews are beneficial to alleviate some of your concerns. Take notice of how many reviews the company has, if they have 5 stars, but only one review online, the company may not be the best choice.  For Example here are some of LeafGuard® of Oklahoma reviews:

You will notice we average 4.9 – 5 out of 5 on the majority of all these review sites, and an A+ from the Better Business Bureau. With recommendations like these, combined with our weekly customer stories, any consumer choosing LeafGuard® of Oklahoma can rest at ease knowing they have selected a great company.

Step 2

Credentials. Make sure all legal requirements are covered. Ask for credentials to be certain your contractor is licensed and insured. Be positive there is a warranty on the products and service you have purchased. Ask how long the company has been in business, and how employees have been trained. Be thorough, asking too much is always better than asking too little when it comes to your home investments. If the company is transparent and explains their processes well, you will feel more confident that they know exactly what they are doing.

In addition to legal credentials, you may want to ask about any awards or recognition they have received and ask about the products they plan to use.

LeafGuard® of Oklahoma has won many awards & qualifications including:

Our Products are also award-winning:

When it comes to our warranties you can expect the best. Our roofing system has a 50-year warranty provided by the manufacturer, but we back that with our own lifetime warranty!

Step 3

Pricing is obviously on your mind.  Taking into consideration, warranties provided, and quality of products, it’s best to have a ‘one and done’ mindset on these types of investments.  You will get what you pay for if you go to a fly by night shop. Most roofs are said to last 25-30 years, but with Oklahoma’s ever-changing extreme weather, it may not last that long.  A 50-year warranty it’s about twice as long as an average roofs life. Logically the best way to choose is to factor in that type of information. Going through this checklist with all of your home improvement needs like Siding, Gutters, and Insulation is wise as well.

One of our past customers.

Always ask for financing options after getting your estimate from a reputable company. LeafGuard® Oklahoma offers to finance your project with monthly payments. We like to create a long lasting relationship with our customers, so they do not have to dive into this kind of research for every home exterior project.  They know they are able to turn to a trustworthy local source.

Red Flags

There are a few red flags we mentioned previously like the number of reviews a company receives, how long they have been in business and more. Here are some other factors to be aware of.

  • The dates of the reviews you are reading. If they are not up to date on their reviews, it’s hard to tell if management has changed and if their service is still up to par.
  • Competitor bashing, this is unprofessional and usually highlights the insecurity of the company doing the bashing. If you are successful in the home exterior industry, you don’t have time to put down other companies. You are busy serving your customers.
  • Broken links to review sites on their website is a good indication they may want these to be inaccessible to you.
  • Successful contractors will make it easy for you to get in contact with them and see a portfolio of their work. Be cautious of home improvement contractors who lack basic information, a website, social media presence, and reviews for example.
  •  We also recommend marking off names of anyone who takes too long to get the information requested to you.

Conclusion

We hope this list helps you find the best local contractor for your home exterior job. Home Solutions of Iowa is happy to provide you with a Free Estimate on your next exterior project & create a lifetime relationship with you!

Tackle Home Improvement This Fall

Steps to Take This Fall in Oklahoma

It is important to take a few steps to prevent any home breakdowns. It’s time to check off any last minute home improvement tasks and we are here to help you with our handy list of home maintenance chores for this fall.

1. Clean and repair the siding. After a long summer, siding can become dirty or mildewed. This month is a great time to use a pressure washer to clean it up and inspect for more serious problems. If your siding has seen better days (think missing, bent, or cracked pieces), consider replacing it.

When power washing on wood or vinyl siding, set it at the lowest pressure setting to ensure it does not damage or remove paint from the siding.
When power washing on wood or vinyl siding, set it at the lowest pressure setting to ensure it does not damage or remove paint from the siding.

 

2. Make sure windows are sealed tight. All double or triple-pane windows should have a tight seal around their perimeter that separates the individual panes of glass and traps inert gas between them, providing a break between the temperatures inside and outside your home. If you notice that your windows are frequently foggy, that’s likely a sign of a failed seal.

3. Change the air filters and tune up the furnace. This one really should be a maintenance task you do every month. Dirty air filters can lead to higher energy bills and irreparably damage your HVAC system.

4. Inspect the roof and gutters. It’s generally fine to wait until most of the leaves have fallen in autumn to clean out the gutters and downspouts, but giving these areas a quick visual inspection now is a good idea. Pull out any sticks or other debris blocking the gutters, and make note of any worn-out seals around vent pipes and chimneys.

Make sure to take precautions when climbing ladders this fall when attempting gutter and roof maintenance.

If you do not feel comfortable on a ladder, or have a home of two or more stories, hire someone to do a quick inspection for you. Schedule any needed repairs now so that your home will be buttoned up for the changing seasons.
