Roof Replace­ment: Put on a new roof. Cleaned up nice­ly after­wards. via Nation­al Con­sumer Reviews Web­site. Cen­tre­ville, VA. 12/18/14

Excel­lent.  Tech­ni­cian came to pro­vide esti­mate and was able to com­plete job at that time.  Tech­ni­cian (Chris) was on time, pro­fes­sional, per­son­able  and was kind enough to re-nail two loose gut­ters.  He also advised me of the pos­si­ble life remain­der on my roof . Esti­mate giv­en was half the amount giv­en by anoth­er com­pany.” via Nation­al Con­sumer Rat­ings Web­site. Cen­tre­ville, VA. 10/14/13.

They got the job done in one day and did a good job of clean­ing up. Also, when I asked about sev­eral issues a few days lat­er, they sent pic­tures of what they had repaired before putting on the new roof, which was very help­ful. They also came out to assess a ques­tion about the roof.” via Local Magazine’s Con­sumer Rat­ing Web­site. Sub­scriber from Cen­tre­ville, VA. 9/22/13

Rake Board: A rake board is an eave which runs along the gable end of the roof of a mod­ern res­i­den­tial struc­ture. It is a place on your home eas­i­ly vis­i­ble to guests of your home. Rot­ten and dam­aged boards should be replaced to improve the look and extend the life of your roof. 


Frieze Board: A frieze board is a hor­i­zon­tal board between 2 inch­es and 6 inch­es wide.


Fas­cia: Fas­cia is a ver­ti­cal frieze board. 


Sof­fit: A sof­fit con­nects the over­hang under your gut­ter­ing sys­tem with your home. Sof­fits pro­tect against mold and rot­ting wood work. 


Gut­ters:  A gut­ter is a shal­low trough fixed beneath the edge of a roof for car­ry­ing off rain­wa­ter. Main­tain­ing your gut­ters will extend the life of your roof.


Down­spouts: Down­spouts are pipes that car­ry rain­wa­ter from a roof to a drain or to ground lev­el.


Gut­ter Screens/Protection: Gut­ter screens and gut­ter pro­tec­tion sys­tems pro­tect your gut­ters from debris and leaves by pre­vent­ing them from clogs. 


Gut­ter Pro­tec­tion



We have two forms of gut­ter pro­tec­tion.


Gut­ter Screens help pre­vent debris from clog­ging the gut­ter­ing.

How To Clean Vinyl Sid­ing
Check out our Part­ner’s Blog and learn how to effec­tive­ly clean your sid­ing. Here are some prob­lem areas, and clean­ing solu­tions. 
  • Dirt, grime, soot and chalk. For gen­er­al dirt­i­ness all you’ll need is a buck­et of soapy water — dish soap or com­mon laun­dry deter­gent work well, a soft bris­tle brush and a gar­den hose. Apply the soapy mix­ture by hand and thor­ough­ly rinse the sid­ing with clean water from the gar­den hose. Avoid pro­longed or high pres­sure rins­ing of open ven­ti­lat­ed areas and keep clean­ing solu­tion off sur­round­ing fix­tures and sur­faces not sched­uled for wash­ing.  NOTE:  We do not rec­om­mend pow­er wash­ing vinyl or poly­mer sid­ing as it can cause mois­ture intru­sion, dam­age, and/or dis­col­oration.  Instead, we sug­gest using a house wash that con­nects to your hose.  This is the sim­plest and most effec­tive way to clean stub­born sid­ing stains. A small amount of soapy water should­n’t affect plants or shrub­bery, but if you are con­cerned about plant­i­ngs close to the house select a soap prod­uct with­out added per­fumes, dyes or mois­tur­iz­ers. Before using, test a small amount of the solu­tion on the plant and wait a few days to see if there are any effects.
  • Stains. Occa­sion­al­ly sid­ing will incur a stub­born stain, like algae build up, that does not come off with stan­dard house­hold deter­gents. In these cas­es it is best to request a clean­er direct­ly from your sid­ing con­trac­tor. They will be able to pro­vide you with prod­ucts designed to work with the sid­ing at hand but even still, always test a small amount in an incon­spic­u­ous loca­tion.
  • Mildew. Vinyl sid­ing is mold and mildew resis­tant.  How­ev­er if the sid­ing is dirty, mildew could grow on the dirty coat­ing espe­cial­ly in warmer cli­mates with con­sis­tent­ly high humid­i­ty.  Mildew appears as black spots on sur­face dirt and is usu­al­ly detect­ed in areas not sub­ject­ed to rain­fall, such as under eaves and porch enclo­sures.  To remove mix togeth­er: 1/3 cup of deter­gent (Tide, for exam­ple), 2/3 cup of Trisodi­um (Soil­Max, for exam­ple), one quart of 5% Sodi­um Hypochlo­rite (Clorox bleach, for exam­ple) and three quarts of water. (Cau­tion: Greater con­cen­tra­tions may cause dam­age to vinyl sid­ing.) If this solu­tion does not eas­i­ly remove the mildew, you can request a mildew-spe­cif­ic clean­er from your con­trac­tor or local build­ing mate­ri­als retail­er.
