Metal Roof Repair

Down at Aaron’s Furniture, a truck hit the roof over a loading bay and damaged not only the roof, but also the steel purlins, leaving it looking like this:

A closer look at the damage:

So they called Hostetler Handyman, and with the help of a 19′ SkyJack® electric scissor-lift from Hugg & Hall Equipment, we replaced the steel roof purlins:

…as well as installing new 26-gauge R-panel galvalume metal from Metal Max where the roof metal had been damaged:

Shiny New Vinyl Flooring

Once flooring is several years old, you just don’t want to look at it too closely. Especially carpet. Though vinyl and tile flooring may get damaged, you can still clean those floors pretty thoroughly, even considering all the people and pets who walk on it on a daily basis. But carpet? Even with carpet shampoos and steam cleaners, there’s just that dirt that will climb down deep and stay there. And then there are the stubborn stains.

Sometimes, it’s just best to start all over. Tear out the square vinyl tile and the carpet…

…install Hardiebacker® cement board for a solid backer board foundation for your new floor…

…and then install brand new Karndean® glue-down vinyl plank flooring…

So your new floor can have the modern look of hardwood with less expense and less maintenance, just like this:

How’s your floor doing? Do you feel comfortable walking on it, or are you always wearing shoes in the house because the floor just seems a little bit gross at this point, to be honest? It doesn’t have to be that way. If you want your home to be both beautiful and relaxing, give us a call at (870) 845-1121 for your free estimate.

Cozy Shingle Roof

Last week we talked a bit about shingles versus metal roofing, and we took a look at the difference it can make to a house when you go from shingles to metal. But what if you have shingles and even though you need a new roof and you’d like to update your home’s appearance, you don’t want to switch to metal? You’re not the only one, and just installing new shingles could make as big a difference for your house as it did for this one.

By choosing to go from dark gray shingles to the warmer Rustic Hickory color Heritage shingles from Tamko®, the homeowner brought a new, cozier look to their home:

Is your roof standing up well to the storms of southern summer, or do you tremble every time the wind picks up? Whether it’s metal roofing or shingles that you prefer to have protecting your home and family, we’d be happy to help you figure out what it will take to get it on the house!
