9 Things to Spend Your Tax Refund On: Garage Doors

It’s tax refund season, which means you have the opportunity to take your tax refund and put it toward a home improvement project. Using your tax refund for an update not only means a better living situation now, but a better living situation for the future and an increased home value.

In this last installment of our “9 Things to Spend Your Tax Refund On” series, we want to address a common element of your home that often gets overlooked: your garage doors. While they may just seem like an easy entry and exit for your car, your garage doors are an influential part of your home.

Protection

Garage doors provide protection not only for the garage itself but also for your home. Many garages are attached to the home, which means there’s a way to get inside once you’re in the garage. If your garage doors are old, damaged, or low quality, you make it easier for intruders to get through them and essentially, easier to get inside your home. Don’t let your garage doors be a weak spot. We carry beautiful steel doors that are built to protect and also look great.

Insulation

Many times, a garage can act like its own large room that sits underneath and adjacent to the rest of your home. If this is the case, you’ll need to make sure your garage and your garage doors are properly insulated. Under insulated garage doors will allow cold air to flow in during the winter and warm air in the summer, both of which can affect the temperature of the rooms next to and on top of your garage. With environmentally friendly zero-ozone depleting Neufoam, the latest in continuous polyurethane insulating technology for garage doors, you won’t have to worry about that.

Aesthetics

Whether you have a one-car garage or a three-car garage, your garage door is one of the main aspects of your home’s curb appeal. How would it look if you had a beautiful, updated home wth an old, boring garage door? We offer garage doors from Richards-Wilcox in a variety of styles, including Classic, Premium, and Elite to complete the look of your home.

Instead of spending your tax refund on a new television or a designer purse, invest in a new garage door and increase the value of your home. Talk to our home improvement professionals today.

9 Things to Spend Your Tax Refund On: Repairs

It’s tax refund season, which means you have the opportunity to take your tax refund and put it toward a home improvement project. Using your tax refund for an update not only means a better living situation now, but a better living situation for the future and an increased home value.

Do you have a leak, a hole, a crack, or another repair you’ve been putting off? Don’t let it go any longer and cause further problems – your tax refund money is the perfect fund for a fix!

Interior Repairs

Windows

There are plenty of things that can happen to a window to damage it. Over time, moisture may build up around it and start to deteriorate the sashes. Or, maybe your screen recently ripped or your window pane broke. Perhaps the window is in tact but your frame has splintered or started to rot. No matter what the situation, our repair experts have the tools and experience to fix it and get your window back to normal.

Doors

Whether it’s your front door, patio door, or another door within your home that’s having problems, we’re here to help. We can repair door handle or lock problems, threshold issues, weatherstripping that needs replaced, or a door that sticks.

Exterior Wall/Trim

No one wants to see a beautifully sided wall with a hole in it, or look around and see trim that’s cracked or broken off. No matter how the damage happened, don’t let your eyesore go any longer. Our professionals can address any exterior issue, whether aesthetic or problematic, and get your home back to looking great.

Exterior Repairs

Roofing

If your roof has a leak, a crack, missing shingles, mold buildup, flashing damage, rot, debris, or any other problem, it could mean serious long-term effects. Roofing issues can worsen over time and can not only compromise the integrity of your roof, but can also lead to damage inside the home. A roofing repair is something you should never delay, so give our repair experts a call as soon as possible.

Gutters

Are your gutters sagging? Pulling away from your home? Clogged? Or not placed correctly? Your gutters are an important part of keeping your roof, home, and foundation dry, so don’t let problematic gutters go by the wayside. We can have them back up and functioning correctly in no time.

Siding

Your home’s siding is what protects it from natural elements like wind, rain, sleet, sun, and more. With holes or missing pieces, it can’t protect your home as well as it should. If you have siding that needs repaired, we can make sure it’s addressed quickly and that your home is properly shielded from upcoming weather issues.

Don’t delay that home repair any longer! Talk to one of our professionals today so you can restore your peace of mind and your home’s perfection.

9 Things to Spend Your Tax Refund On: Insulation

It’s tax refund season, which means you have the opportunity to take your tax refund and put it toward a home improvement project. Using your tax refund for an update not only means a better living situation now, but a better living situation for the future and an increased home value.

Year-Round Protection

Most people think home insulation is only needed during winter months. After all, insulation is meant to keep your home warm, right? As a matter of fact, insulation is important all year round. While it does keep your home warm in the winter, it also helps keep it cool in the summer. The right amount of insulation and the right type will help form a barrier between your home and the heat of the outdoors.

If you don’t have the proper insulation meant for your area, your HVAC system will have to work harder to keep your home at the right temperature. When it works harder, you’ll end up spending more money on gas or electricity each month and you’ll also reduce your system’s lifespan.

Noise Reduction

While home insulation helps keep you and your family at a happy temperature, it also reduces noise to keep your home quiet. The right insulation on the outer areas of your home will help absorb outdoor noise such as traffic, animals, insects, neighbors, and more.  Inside your home, your insulation will help absorb noise in-between rooms such as music, television shows, snoring, talking, and video games.

If you’re in need of new insulation or believe you don’t have enough, call us today. Our insulation installation team will evaluate your home to determine the best action.

9 Things to Spend Your Tax Refund On: Gutters

gutters

It’s tax refund season, which means you have the opportunity to take your tax refund and put it toward a home improvement project. Using your tax refund for an update not only means a better living situation now, but a better living situation for the future and an increased home value.

Are your gutters broken? Sagging? Filled with debris? Don’t let them go any longer without fixing them! Your gutters are an important asset to your home. Not only do they direct water away from your roof, they also direct it away from your foundation. Without proper gutters, your roof, siding, interior, and more would be susceptible to water damage.

This year, spend your tax refund wisely and let our gutter repair experts get your gutters back in working order. We can replace a section of gutter that’s been damaged, re-attach a portion that has shifted away from your home, or adjust an area that’s sagging.

Gutter Cap Protection System

If you have a lot of trees on your property, you may have noticed that your gutters get clogged easily with leaves, twigs, blossoms, and more. We offer a Royal Guard Gutter Cap System that can eliminate the need to ever clean your gutters again. This system features a gutter covering that prevents materials from collecting in the trough, but still lets water flow through. You won’t have to worry about climbing up on a ladder to pick out soggy debris anymore.

In addition, our Gutter Guard prevents ice dams in the winter time. When your gutters become clogged and water can’t flow through, it builds up and can freeze. Once there’s a frozen “dam,” future precipitation that travels down your roof has nowhere to go and begins backing up behind it. As the dam gets larger, there’s nowhere for the water to go and it can eventually penetrate your roof and cause mold, mildew, and more serious issues.

Don’t put off bad gutters any longer – give our gutter repair experts a call today!

9 Things to Spend Your Tax Refund On: Windows

It’s tax refund season, which means you have the opportunity to take your tax refund and put it toward a home improvement project. Using your tax refund for an update not only means a better living situation now, but a better living situation for the future and an increased home value.

If you’ve been wanting to replace your home’s windows for awhile, stop putting it off and give us a call. We can have your window replacement done fast, so you can enjoy the many benefits of new windows.

Any Style for Any Home

Windows can do more than you think when it comes to curb appeal; even replacing double-hung windows with picture windows can make a big difference. At P.J. Fitzpatrick, we offer windows in a wide variety of styles to fit your home’s characteristics. Whether you want to create a Victorian look with bow or bay windows, create a beach feel with awning windows, or just want to do something different with specialty shapes, our window replacement specialists can help.

Keep Your Comfort

The more windows you have in your home, the more opportunities there are for drafts. Whether it’s warm air in the summer or cold air in the winter, drafts can alter the temperature of your home and make you turn up your thermostat to keep your home comfortable. With insulating, energy efficient windows, you won’t have to worry about that. You’ll get the natural light you want along with a quality seal that keeps the temperature in your home at the right level.

If you’re interested in updating your windows, contact us today and set up an appointment. We’ll show you what we have to offer.

9 Things to Spend Your Tax Refund On: Siding

It’s tax refund season, which means you have the opportunity to take your tax refund and put it toward a home improvement project. Using your tax refund for an update not only means a better living situation now, but a better living situation for the future and an increased home value.

Aesthetic Appeal

When you look at a home, one of the first things you notice is its siding. Whether it’s vinyl, wood, aluminum, brick, or cement, your siding can give your home a very distinct look, and if it’s in bad shape, it can be an eyesore. Damaged or missing siding can make your home look old, run-down, neglected, and more, and at P.J. Fitzpatrick, we’re sure that’s not the first impression you want to give your visitors.

If your home’s siding could use a refresher (or if you’d simply like to change the way your home looks), why not use your tax refund to do it? Our siding replacement experts can help you choose from a variety of siding styles and colors to not only make your home stand out, but also give it character. Don’t let worn siding lower your curb appeal. Give us a call today.

Protection

While siding plays a large part in the aesthetic appeal of your home, it plays an even bigger part in the protection. High-quality siding can help shield your home from heat, rain, snow, wind, hail, debris, and more. Without siding, you and your family would be exposed to the elements. You also would have a much harder time keeping your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Siding helps insulate your home to create a comfortable living environment.

If your siding is damaged, under-insulated, or otherwise sub-par, you’re not getting the protection you need. Do the right thing for both your home and your family and use your tax refund to replace your siding. We can help you choose something based on your needs and your budget, so you can get the most bang for your buck. Talk to one of our siding replacement experts today for more information.
