    Commercial Roofing Problems and Solutions Many in New Jersey do not realize the differences in residential and commercial roofing, but it is important to realize they are not the same, there are differences between them, and they should be handled differently. The problems that NJ building owners face and the solutions to their commercial roofing problems also can vary from residential roofing installations especially with the wide range of temperatures and variations of New Jersey weather conditions.   THE MOST COMMON COMMERCIAL ROOFING PROBLEMS ... AND THE SOLUTIONS! Listed below you will find the most common problems building New Jersey business owners and facility managers face with their roofs. A Leaking Roof the most common commercial roofing problem today. The solution to a leaking roof is different in every situation. Metal roof, you may be able to patch or caulk the leak. Or it may be so pervasive that you have to replace entire metal panels to fix the leak. Most Foam roofs can usually be patched with caulk.  Blow offs are caused by winds that get underneath the roofing material and life it up off the roof deck. There is no “repair” you can make, only a replacement. Improper Installation If your was installed improperly there isn’t a whole lot of choice other than replacement. As with blow off, the best way to prevent this problem is to stop it before it occurs by only hiring a roofing company with a good reputation. Poor Roof Maintenance Stick to a scheduled maintenance plan. Performing inspections and maintaining your roof properly will avoid the need for roof replacement. Usually, by the time it your roof shows signs of wear and tear that are apparent, that roof may be too far gone for repair. Standing or Ponding Water There are a few options. 1.) purchase electric pumps to move the water to better drainage area. 2:)  raise that section of roof If you have access to the underside of the roof by adding more supports to eliminate the low spot or 3.) Install water barriers that do not let water flow to or rain fall on the area that is ponding. This is the most work, but outside of replacing the roof area with a more level roofing system, it is the most effective method. Punctures in the Roof Surface These can be patched or caulked depending on your roofing material. Both solutions are mere “bandaids” for the problem, but they will stop any leaks resulting from the puncture. Improper Repairs Basically, the roof experienced a problem, possible a leak, and it was repaired but was done incorrectly. Sometimes, you can identify where or how the repair was made improperly, undo the repair and redo it the right way. Sometimes not, in which case you may have to start over from scratch. Avoid this problem by hiring a contractor that is reputable and dependable. Blistering Roof Surface Occurs in single-ply roofs, foam roofs, and restoration coatings. The solution: cut out the blister and replace it. Blisters can often be pervasive, but they aren’t a huge concern if they appear. Shrinking Roof Surface Roofs shrink and expand depending on outside temperatures. This flexing causes the outer surface of the roof become damaged and create leaks. The solution is a roof coating, elastic enough to stretch with the roof as it flexes, which maintains its membrane and prevents leaks . If you don’t have a coating, you will need to monitor your roof and make repairs as necessary due to the shrinking.To schedule an estimate with Magnolia Home Remodeling Groupplease click on the free estimate button or call 855-624-6655.Estimates are always free and we greatly appreciate the opportunity!

  • 0 When Should I Replace My NJ Roof and What can I expect?

    • Roofing
    • by Magnolia Home Remodeling
    • 22-02-2020

    Spring and early summer are generally cost-effective times to have your NJ roof repaired or replaced, as it is generally a slower time of year for roofing companies in our area, and materials and labor costs tend to be lower.How long can I expect it to take?you can expect a typical roof replacement on a 1,000-2,000 sq. ft. home to take anywhere from 1-3 days.Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Roof Replacement?A typical all-perils homeowners insurance policy covers the replacement of a roof, regardless of age, only if it is the result of an act of nature. Roofs that have exceeded their intended life span are not eligible for replacement because they fall under the general maintenance responsibility of the homeowner. What are the expected steps to Residential Roof Replacement?   #1 – Property Protection. Magnolia Home Remodeling’s roofing team makes sure that your entire property is fully protected while roofing replacement is underway.  This includes siding, walls, plants, bushes, etc. using tarps and protection plywood where needed.   #2 – Removal of Old Roofing Material. All old shingles will be completely removed in order to inspect the wood decking underneath.   #3 – Roofing Inspection. Each roof replacement project begins with a thorough inspection of the wood decking. Soft, wet or rotted wood needs to be replaced because only when you have a solid base for your roofing structure can your shingles stay intact. We also check for missing nails and take care of that or after several weeks you will see ‘bumps’ on your roof.     #4 – Preparing The Roof Surface For Shingles. Next, its time to install any roof flashing in place that isn’t already there. Then, install a drip edge, an ice and water barrier, and an underlayment.   #5 – New Roofing Material Installation. Once the base is ready, its time to start laying out the new roofing material, working from the bottom up,  followed by step and/or counter flashing, ridge vents, and ridge capping installation, as needed.   #6 – Site Cleanup. Magnolia Home Remodeling believes in leaving a job site cleaner than it had been before we came in.   #7 – Final Inspection. The Magnolia Home Remodeling roofing team will perform a post-roofing inspection. We want to make sure that your roof replacement is done correctly and that it meets with your complete satisfaction.  To schedule an estimate with Magnolia Home Remodeling Groupplease click on the free estimate button or call 855-624-6655.Estimates are always free and we greatly appreciate the opportunity!

  • 0 Your Guide to General Window and Home Safety

    • Windows
    • by Magnolia Home Remodeling
    • 07-02-2020

    There is no better way to protect your family than by implementing the appropriate safety features in your home. With window-related accidents and issues occurring in New Jersey and in homes across America every year, there are a few important safety tips that every homeowner should know. Our experienced contractors at Magnolia Home Remodeling understand the importance of window and home safety, which is why they have prepared a safety guide for you and your family to follow. Important Window and Home Safety Tips Limit children’s’ access to windows If you have young children, a window can be a serious safety hazard if it is not properly secured or positioned out of the child’s reach. Window companies such as Pella offer a beautiful array of windows that can be locked to prevent children from falling out when adults are not in the room. Pella windows can also be paired with remote technology so that parents are always in control, and there is no need for strings or other manual features that children could potentially harm themselves with. Prepare for an emergency exit When redecorating a room or installing replacement windows, it is always important to consider the fastest way to exit if necessary. Homes should be equipped with smoke and carbon monoxide detectors so that families can exit immediately if an emergency occurs. Parents should also educate their kids on how to safely get outside if they are not present during an emergency. Your emergency exit windows should therefore never be painted over, nailed shut, or overlaid with films and other accessories that will slow down your exit time. Practice precautionary landscaping Kids often let their imagination run wild and get themselves into dangerous situations while unsupervised. Even if you have leading window safety technology in place, it is always best to prepare for a child to fall out of your window by planting soft bushes and flower beds directly outside. Ensure safe window installation It is always best to have a professional install your windows for you, however if you plan on installing them yourself, it is important to follow safety procedures while doing so. Whether you are installing a small Anderson picture window or a luxurious Pella bay replacement window, you should always read the directions and use a sturdy ladder to install the piece.

Generous, high-performance models with a single bowl contain splashes while simultaneously accommodating large pots and pans or other items that require hand washing. Consider farmhouse-style sinks, which have regained popularity.   Fewer Upper Cabinets Less is more, as made apparent by this minimalist trend. Upper cabinetry continues to come down as homeowners opt for the open, airy look of additional windows or choose to display dishware and artwork on open shelves. Open shelving in the kitchen makes it even easier to carry cups and plates from the dishwasher to their storage place.    Create Open Shelving Give upper kitchen cabinets a new look. Convert them to open shelving with this simple, step-by-step process. This will streamline your kitchen cleaning routine and give your kitchen a modern design.    Under Counter Appliances As upper cabinets disappear and walls open up, appliances and storage have shifted underneath counters. This trend favors universal design principles and keeps small appliances accessible. New microwave models, including microwave drawers, load from the top for added convenience.   Deep Drawers Extra-deep drawers, especially by the range, make cooking and storage effortless.

  • 0 5 Bathroom Renovations That Keep Seniors Safe

    Bathroom Renovation in NJ Makes Homes Safer for Seniors Given the option, most aging seniors would rather "age in place."  That is, remain in their existing home as they grow older, rather than moving to some sort of retirement or health community. This is excellent for their overall morale and mental health, but it can present challenges if their home wasn't designed around the needs of seniors. The bathroom can be one of the most dangerous rooms in the house for older people - but it doesn't have to be. With a New Jersey bathroom remodeling, you can affordably add necessary safety measures.   Five Important NJ Bathroom Renovations That Keep Seniors Safe Safety rails If there's one all-important bathroom upgrade that should happen before any others, it's the addition of safety rails around the bathtub/shower and toilet.  Slipping injuries are extremely common in bathrooms among people of all ages, but particularly seniors.  Additionally, safety rails aid in mobility, such as sitting and standing up.    Anti-slip flooring Floors are another source of hazard for anyone using a bathroom, seniors included.  There are a couple of options here.  Some people opt for carpeting since it does the most to prevent slipping, although it does require some extra upkeep.  Changing the surface to something more 'grippy' is another option.  Many types of stonework, for example, are much less slippery when wet than typical bathroom tiles. Raised shower and toilet seats If standing or sitting are issues for the senior in your life, there are relatively affordable solutions for that.  Seats in the shower allow them to sit down when washing, further removing opportunities for slipping.  Toilets, on the other hand, can be modified with raised seats which don't require them to fully sit down.   Walk-in shower Will climbing over the edge of a bathtub be an issue?  Convert the bathtub/shower into a walk-in model.  Adding a small door to the side of the bathtub allows seniors to walk straight into the shower, without the need to climb over the side. Ground floor bathroom Finally, if the bathroom is on the second floor, moving it to the ground floor will be a major safety improvement.  This will significantly reduce the number of stairs a senior has to climb up and down per day!  Of course, it's also the most expensive bathroom renovation.   Magnolia Home Remodeling If you need a top-quality bathroom renovation in NJ, the experts at Magnolia Home Remodeling are waiting to hear from you!  » Click here for a free estimate.  Related: Home Remodeling Financing
