Happy Thanksgiving From Custom Insulation Company Inc.

Happy Thanksgiving From Custom Insulation Company Inc.

It’s Thanksgiving week and a time each year when we reflect upon the blessing within our lives. Today our warmest Thanksgiving wishes go out to all of you, our clients, friends, and neighbors. Along with this note of thanks to you, this week we offer a special Thanksgiving “shout-out” to one of the more unsung Thanksgiving heroes, Sarah Hale. Historians credit Sara Hale as the originator of the Thanksgiving federal holiday.

Sara Hale undertook a 17-year letter writing campaign to make Thanksgiving a national holiday observed in all states. Before Hale, Thanksgiving was not a fixed holiday but rather an informal tradition. Presidents would select a day and make it known that it would be a day of thanksgiving and community. Hale lobbied five separate presidents for a set date until finally her request was granted by president Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln congratulated her tenacity and immortalized the holiday as part of American culture.

So thanks, Sara, for your 17 years of letter writing, for securing our day of Thanks on Thursday, and for your part in creating one of the most warm and celebrated day within our American culture!

Aluminum gutter systems in Massachusetts are often the most popular choice for homeowners. Before winter starts, be sure your home gutter system is clean, clear, functional and well designed. Seamless aluminum gutters are the perfect choice for homeowners seeking a reliable system for their home.

Gutters protect the foundation, siding, roof, windows and all elements of the structural integrity of your entire home. Because aluminum gutters are malleable, meaning the aluminum can be hammered or pressed without breaking or cracking, it is one of the best materials for seamless gutters because it can assume the shape and corners of the exterior of a home.

Seamless aluminum gutter installation has a bunch of benefits for homeowners. Because they are seamless, the chance of leakage is entirely reduced. The absence of joints also helps significantly in preventing dirt or debris from accumulating and clogging them, inhibiting water flow especially during heavy downpours. This means they need less cleaning or repair. Less maintenance means less expense or time spent.

The gutter system is one way for homeowners to ensure that water damage is prevented because the downspouts are set up to direct water away from the foundation. This is why a properly installed gutter system is an important feature on any home. While there are many options of gutters for residential applications, many homeowners choose seamless copper gutters.

One advantage of using seamless copper gutter in Boston, MA is the lack of seams, which prevents leaking. But, almost as important to the homeowners who choose copper is the aesthetic value. Copper gutters are very attractive and dramatic and can enhance the style and design features of any home. Overtime, copper takes on a patina effect changing the color and sheen as it ages and a lot of homeowners find this effect beautiful. This patina effect gives the gutters a more rustic look, that cannot be found on other gutter materials.

The copper itself is also low maintenance. For homeowners who want a gutter system that does not take much work, copper is a great offer. Copper is a natural algae-inhibitor. This means that algae, moss and mold do not grow on seamless copper gutters. It is a practical investment and the installation costs can be redeemed overtime through the lack of maintenance costs.
