As a licensed roofing contractor serving Pasadena, Arcadia, Sierra Madre, San Marino and the surrounding communities we know a quality roofing job just doesn’t happen by chance. It is an expression of our quality roofing installers training, ingenuity and know-how.
Our promise is to execute the finer details of a quality roof installation to achieve 100% homeowner approval. Maintenance costs are usually the second largest single expense component for buildings… right behind utility costs. A prudent building owner, manager or engineer, wouldn’t think of going more than six months without servicing an HVAC system or having elevators or boilers serviced.
That said, it’s surprising how many building professionals completely ignore one of the biggest building wear items until symptoms of system failure have been reported. If your first roof inspection is in response to a tenant or employee complaints about roof leaks, your options are likely to be limited and costly. Roof replacement is never inexpensive and when the expense is unexpected, it can have a devastating effect on your operating budget.
How often do you get your roof inspected?
A yearly roof inspection gives prudent building managers and owners an accurate assessment of the current roof conditions, a road map for needed maintenance and repairs to preserve or extend the life of the existing roofing system, and a valuable financial plan to help accurately prepare and time future roof replacement projects… on budget and on your own schedule.
Annual roof inspections also provide low-cost insurance against the unforeseen expense of water intrusion that may cause damage to a building’s structure or contents. It’s also a great hedge against potentially expensive roof replacement costs associated with a hastily planned project. Practical building management dictates that if your roof is more than five years old, you should have a professional roof inspection every year to assess and preserve the health of your asset.
Good Attic Insulation can Conquer Rising Energy Costs
Attic insulation is a crucial component of reducing energy costs. If your home is 10 – 15 years old, it may not be as insulated as it should be. This can result in major energy loss, especially from the attic. A well-insulated home can significantly reduce your utility bills throughout the year. Lansford Roofing Inc. can help you save your money, by including AttiCat™ Expanding Blown-In Insulation with your green energy efficient house plans.
With AttiCat™ Attic Insulation you can:
- Save up to 20% on your home’s heating and cooling energy costs by insulating and air sealing. (Savings will vary depending on your location and weather conditions. This air flow research calculation of energy savings is based on a 1700 sq. ft., single-story home, with base case insulation and air leakage levels equivalent to the average home built in 1965.)
- Earn a 10% tax credit up to $500.
- Increase the comfort of your home during extreme heat.
- Increase your home’s resale value.
Quick and Easy Attic Insulation
- Covers entire attic in less than 1.5 hours (1000 sq. ft. attic with R-30).
- R-30 insulation energy savings.
- AttiCat™ Expanding Blown-In PINK FIBERGLAS™ Insulation provides optimum insulating R-value for your climate zone.
- Provides complete coverage, even around pipes, wires and outlets.
- AttiCat™ Expanding Blown-In PINK FIBERGLAS™ Insulation releases and expands completely inside the machine. As the insulation bounces its way up to your attic, it is further conditioned through the length of the hose, breaking it up and fluffing it, creating millions of tiny air pockets that give the material its insulating power.
- Easy clean-up because the machine does the work
- Low-dust system
No Settling, High-Value Retention
- AttiCat™ Expanding Blown-In PINK FIBERGLAS™ insulation will not settle like other attic insulation
- Keeps its energy saving R-value over time
Safe and Reliable
- AttiCat™ Expanding Blown-In PINK FIBERGLAS™ Insulation is non-combustible and meets all building codes for non-combustibility.
- Non-corrosive. Doesn’t require fire-retardant chemicals which can leach out, promoting corrosion of pipes, electrical equipment or structural metal attachments.
- Doesn’t support mold growth. Inorganic glass fibers do not support fungus or mold growth. Will not rot or decay. (Fiber glass is resistant to mold growth, as tested per ASTM C 1338. However, mold growth can occur on building materials, including insulation, when it becomes contaminated with organic material and when water is present. To avoid mold growth on fiber glass attic insulation, remove any water that has accumulated and correct or repair the source of that water. Insulation that has become wet should be inspected for evidence of residual moisture and contamination. Contaminated insulation should be promptly removed and replaced.)
- Won’t absorb moisture. Moisture reduces attic insulation effectiveness. Glass fibers resist moisture build-up.
- AttiCat™ Expanding Blown-In PINK FIBERGLAS™ Insulation works on the principle of trapped air pockets. Tiny air pockets trapped in the insulation resist the passage of heat flow—heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer. Generally, the thicker the attic insulation, the more air pockets and the greater the insulating power.
- AttiCat™ Insulation is a great option for your arsenal of energy efficient housing ideas!
