    Understanding the Purpose and Benefits of Gutter Covers

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Nobody likes cleaning their gutters. But, as the colder months approach, it will become more and more important to routinely clear them out. If you’ve been through the process of cleaning your gutters, then you’ve probably wished there were a way to keep all that debris from accumulating over time. Luckily, installing gutter covers can provide you with that option. Below are a few of the different types of gutter covers. 

    Reverse Curve
    This type of gutter cover diverts water into the gutter through a thin slit. At the same time, it prevents large debris from entering the gutter.

    Mesh
    Mesh gutter screens block most debris from getting inside the gutter, while still allowing the flow of water. Mesh with smaller holes is better at blocking debris than mesh with larger openings. 

    Bottle Brush
    This type of gutter cover is similar to the device that keeps birds from landing on statues or signs. They allow water to flow through, but trap the debris before it can enter the gutter.

    Nylon
    Nylon covers are best at preventing ice and snow accumulation within the gutter. These covers basically act as an extension of the roof itself, preventing both debris and water from entering the gutter. If you live in a climate with a great deal of precipitation during the winter, then nylon gutter covers might be your best option.

    Foam
    As you may imagine, foam gutter covers actually fit inside the gutters. They allow water to drain around them, but still keep the large debris out. 

    Gutter covers prevent all debris from building up in your gutters, but they certainly cut down on the amount. If you’re interested in finding out about the best gutter cover options for your roof, then call the best roofers in AtlantaFindlay Roofing at (678) 905-4155 to set up an appointment.

    A Basic Guide to Energy-Performance Ratings for Replacement Windows

    Last updated 3 years ago

    If you want to increase the resale value of your home and reduce your energy bill, then you should consider installing new windows. The latest in energy-saving technology comes in many styles, meaning you don’t have to sacrifice fashion for function. However, before you explore the market, read the follow explanation of the essential rating systems of energy-efficient windows.

    • Solar Heat Gain Coefficient

    The Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SGHC) is a measurement of how much solar energy is released as heat into your home. Windows with a low SGHC will release less heat, and are best for hotter climates. Windows with a high SGHC will collect more energy to be released as heat, which is better in climates with very cold winters.

    • U-Factor

    The U-factor is a measurement of non-solar heat flow. A higher U-factor means that more heat will be let in. The most energy-efficient windows will have a low U-factor, at or slightly above 0.25. Occasionally, this rating will only refer to the glass, but the National Fenestration Rating Council rates the entire window, including spacers and frames.

    • Air Leakage

    A draft in your home could be due to a high air leakage rating. A low air leakage rating means a tighter fitting, more energy-efficient window. Tighter windows will reduce the presence of a draft in your home.

    • Visible Transmittance

    The amount of light let through a window’s glazing is its visible transmittance. The rating for visible transmittance is expressed by a number between 0 and 1. A number closer to 1 will let more light through. If you need to reduce glare in your home, choose a window with a VT rating closer to 0.

    If you want to discuss your replacement window options with a licensed contractor, then call Findlay Roofing at (678) 905-4155.

    Findlay replaced our roof 2 years ago and did an outstanding job at a fair price. So, when a tree fell through our roof this summer, we did not hesitate to call them again! They did an excellent job and our roof is perfect! They are very professional and every department runs like a well oiled machine! We highly recommend Findlay! More
