Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 09, 2011

It really is essential to have a gutter system especially in the Boston area. Having gutters will prevent all sorts of harm from the roof all of the way to the basement. Rain gutters will prevent costly water damage. One form of gutters we offer that are fairly popular are the copper gutters.

Copper gutters are excellent to have for numerous factors such as the fact that they'll never rust or rot away. What ever the weather happens to be, this gutter type will withstand it well. Copper gutters add a distinctive style and flare to your house. Their style is right away noticeable and recognizable. It adds a sense of visual appeal that can only be discovered with copper. It's really more valuable than other materials, and adds an even higher value to your residence. You won't have to maintain them as much as aluminum or vinyl, but they do require some upkeep. The one area you will only want to keep an eye on is with oxidation. Copper gutters will oxidize and turn green over time unless you treat them. There are methods to preserve the shine including by utilizing sealants, but it is not needed.

On the other hand many people prefer the greenish look, particularly in older homes made from stone or stucco. There's an exclusive appeal or look to it that's only developed with time. You'll see them on homes that grow ivy as well. All of these features pretty much mean that you're going to pay a bit more for copper gutters. The positive side of that is you might be truly obtaining a product that lasts longer. You will also invest less time maintaining them.

Keep Warm and Secure This Winter with our Blown-In Insulation

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, January 26, 2011
Heat loss from your house might seem like a massive jolt to your domestic budget. Imagine having your heating system work overtime just because you are not warm enough. Yet, to keep yourself safe from repair costs, and keep the heat inside your house, you need to insulate it well through different methods. Well Custom Insulation has the solution and that is our blown-in cellulose insulation.

Cellulose insulation
is excellent for the environment. Like any other insulating system, cellulose insulation keeps the heat inside your house and doesn‘t let it escape. This type of insulation is more energy efficient than other methods because it uses insulating fibers, a composition of which is 80% post-consumer recycled newspapers. Similarly, the energy involved in making these fibers is comparatively lesser than traditional fiberglass or rock wools. This method is also energy efficient because it does not involve any harmful emissions. Therefore, it is environment friendly.

Because cellulose insulation is sprayed, it ensures that there is no sagging or drooping. Complete coverage will mean that heat and air are not flowing from room to room. This will also be a precaution from any potential fires in the house. Moreover, this method of insulation also seals incoming wires and plumbing holes. Covering these small holes ensures that you are living comfortably during extreme warm and cold weather. This method uses water to bind the insulation with the surface. The adhesion provided by water is durable and hard because it does not require any netting or mesh wire. The bond complex becomes hard as it dries, and therefore it is self-supporting.

Custom Insulation's cellulose method not only provides insulation for the heat it also offers the best sound insulation, thereby preventing noise pollution. This acoustic insulation will mean that you can relax in your house without exterior sounds bothering you.

In all, insulating your house by this method is the right option you should select! Contact us today to learn more about our insulation methods. Be sure to browse through our other services as well and start saving money today.
