    THE FALL BEFORE THE STORM FREE INSPECTIONS BY MAGNOLIA HOME REMODELING’S ROOFING EXPERTS For almost any area, the best time of year to replace a roof is the fall. The temperatures during the fall months are much better suited for roofing. They allow for the material to work the best, and they provide the best conditions for the roofing professionals that are doing the job. Let us face the facts. During the winter months, the problems of winter storms, ice and snow and cold weather can be dangerous. Snow can stop any roofer from working on a roof. If possible, it is best to wait until a time when snow and ice is not an issues. Extreme cold can prevent our roofing professionals from doing their job well, and performing under such conditions is much more dangerous. Summer can work as well, however, during the summer temperatures on the roof can easily exceed 100 degrees. This makes it more difficult to work with the material and causes the workers to struggle to give their best.  The fall tends to be drier than other parts of the year. When deciding the best time of year to replace a roof. Fall is by far best time of year to replace roof shingles.   How do you know if your NJ roof needs attention? Are there roof granules in your gutter? Is your roof’s color uneven? Have you noticed water stains in your attic? If so, your roof probably needs to be replaced… Hot New Jersey summers, hail storms and the rough, harsh winters in our area aggravate roof problems, and can shorten the life of your roof. The damage is much easier to repair if you catch the problems early.  As soon as you notice dark spots in the attic or uneven wear on your roof, you need to call Magnolia Home Remodeling so our roofing experts can assess the situation.   In many cases, it’s either repair now or replace later. If your roof is over ten years old, look for streaks where the surface granules have fallen off. If you see shingle tabs in your lawn or in the gutter, there are probably more loose tabs on the roof. If the shingles or granules fall off, water can seep through around the nail heads to damage the underlayment. Then the water can drip down onto your interior ceilings, causing more damage. Roofs are continuously under attack by the elements. These factors damage the shingles, weather the corners, or completely strip sections of the roof away during terrible storms. The pitch, the underlayment, and the materials also affect your roof’s lifespan. New Jersey roofs require quality materials and experienced roofers who can help you pick the right materials for your specific area and climate conditions. FREE INSPECTIONS BY MAGNOLIA HOME REMODELING’S ROOFING EXPERTS  CHECK YOUR ROOF YOURSELFDo you know what to look for? The best time to check your roof for wear and tear is in the spring and fall. The best place to start checking the condition of your roof is from the inside of your home.  Take a flashlight and head for the attic. You’ll be looking for light coming in from the outside. You will also be looking for dark spots and signs of water leaks or damage. Also check for sagging. Checking your roof from the outside of your home is easy. These are simple to spot. Get up on that ladder and check in your gutters. Can you detect any mold build up? Are there missing shingles or flashing? Do you see a large amount of shingle granules? If you notice lots of roofing debris, this means your roof has advanced wear. While you’re up there, also check to make sure the gutters are flowing freely and not clogged with leaves or other blockages. Once you’ve checked for the obvious signs of wear and damage, hiring a roofing company like Magnolia Home Remodeling is the next step in determining the condition of your roof.

  • 0 Siding Guide for the New Jersey Home Owner

    • Siding
    • by Magnolia Home Remodeling
    • 09-09-2019

    There is no question that no other building materials play such a key role in your home. Not only is it a factor in the overall appearance in your home, it protects it against the harshest elements and for those reasons adds architectural character and value. Usually, a vinyl siding replacement recoups more than 80 percent of its initial cost at resale and fiber cement siding returns about 84 percent. GUIDE TO COMMON SIDING REPLACEMENT OPTIONS Vinyl Siding Tough, durable, and widely available in many styles and colors. Color permeates the material and won’t reveal nicks and scratches. Today’s standards ensure that vinyl siding will maintain its shape in extreme temperatures, provide resistance to high winds, and retain its color. Benefits: Light weight makes for speedy installation; can be retrofit over existing siding; little maintenance; top-quality brands offer transferable lifetime guarantees to subsequent buyers. Drawbacks: Seams will show where the ends of standard 12-foot panels overlap. Extra-long panels virtually eliminate seams for an additional cost of about 30%.Green factor: Vinyl has a long replacement cycle of 30 to 50 years, but the same ingredient that makes it durable—polyvinyl chloride or PVC—doesn’t degrade in landfills. Byproducts of PVC production may include dioxin and other toxins.  Metal Siding The popularity—and availability—of steel and aluminum siding is waning because vinyl has evolved as the better low-cost option. Metal siding comes in many pre-finished colors and features styles that mimic wood. Modern metal sidings are dent-resistant, insect- and fire-proof, and require little maintenance. With proper care, steel and aluminum siding will last more than 50 years.Benefits: Light weight speeds installation; baked-on paint enamel finishes won’t need periodic repainting.Drawbacks: Not readily available in all areas; dents are permanent; scratches should be touched up with a quality, color-matched house paint.Green factor: Aluminum siding products may contain up to 30% recycled content. Fiber-cement Siding Fiber-cement siding is made from a mixture of wood fibers, Portland cement, clay, and sand. It’s slowly gaining market share as consumers become more aware of its rugged durability, low maintenance, and weather-resistance. Because it’s made from a liquid cement like mixture, it can be molded to closely resemble painted wood, stucco, or masonry. It’s also termite-proof, fire-resistant, and doesn’t rot. A 30-year warranty is standard.  Benefits: Pre-finished fiber-cement siding eliminates the need for painting after installation, yet the material accepts repainting easily when you want to change colors. It resists thermal expansion and contraction, so paint and caulk hold up well; in some areas, fiber-cement is considered to be masonry and may qualify you for lower home insurance premiums—check with your agent. Drawbacks: Fiber cement materials are heavy. Installation requires specialty tools and techniques, adding to labor costs (about 50 percent more than vinyl). Search for bids and find an installer who’s familiar with the product.  Green factor: The production of Portland cement is associated with CO2 emissions, which are probably offset by the material’s extreme longevity. However, because fiber-cement is relatively new, that longevity has yet to bear out. Composite Siding This product serves to protect the interior of the structures from water, debris, and the elements. It comes in a variety of materials and textures and is often used as a means to give a home a certain aesthetic appearance. Its versatility allows it to be used in a wide range of decors and designs, making it the go-to material of choice for homeowners and contractors alike. Benefits: It withstands strenuous weather, and won't attract fungus and mold like most wood-based sidings. Composite house siding also won't warp with fluctuating temperatures or humidity levels, and is low-maintenance. Drawbacks: However, despite dozen benefits it can offer, there are still other typical and distinctive problems and drawbacks you can point out. Sometimes there can be edge cracking, buckling, and moisture content which is more than 25 percent (excessive). It also is heavy and can be difficult to install when fiber cement board is used. It is poor in relation to providing thermal insulation. And the dust from certain kinds of composite siding is harmful to the respiratory system of the human body. Wood Siding Wood siding comes in many species and grades, and what you select—and pay—depends on how you plan to finish the material. If you want the natural beauty of wood to show through a clear or semi-transparent stain, you’ll need to opt for more expensive grades with fewer knots and other defects. Benefits: Easy-to-shape-and-cut material requires few specialized skills for installation, reducing labor costs; with proper care, wood will last 100 years or more—longer than synthetic materials; superior aesthetics.Drawbacks: Can be expensive; requires repainting every 5 years, re-staining every 3 years, or applying a clear finish every 2 years, for which a professional painter will charge thousands; retrofitting with wood means a complete tear-off of existing materials; non-moisture-resistant species, such as pine and fir, are susceptible to rot. Sidings vary in so many ways. Thus understanding how things work is essential to know which will best suit your purpose.   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 4 Keys to Finding the Perfect Kitchen Design

    Many homeowners spend plenty of time in their kitchen each day. It is important that this space is treated with care and built with a design plan that is perfect for your individual needs and unique style. The contractors at Magnolia Home Remodeling are simplifying NJ kitchen renovations with a four-step list for achieving your perfect kitchen design. Focus on spatial needs A good home improvement contractor should work with you to determine the amount of space that is needed for your kitchen to function properly. If you live with a family of seven, for example, you may need more counter space for multiple people to prepare food at one time. In this case, an island may be a suitable option for your kitchen. But if you live alone or with another person, you may be able to afford saving space on storage and countertops in favor of larger, more elaborate appliances or furniture. A floorplan that fits Home remodeling contractors know the importance of treating each room as one element of the entire home, rather than an isolated space. Unfortunately, not all kitchen designs will be suitable for your home. When designing a kitchen floorplan, a good NJ home improvement contractor will look at the connecting rooms and create a remodeling plan that compliments the way the rest of your home has been designed. Practical appliances Choosing appliances that are practical for your budget, usage, amount of available space, and personal style can be a headache. Allowing home remodeling contractors to assist you in making these decisions is a great way to find the proper balance of all these factors. Regardless of size and budget restrictions, a good contractor will find several appliance options for you to choose from. Incorporating a dining area For many NJ homeowners, space can be limited, and it’s essential to capitalize on rooms that can function in various ways. If you do not have the space for a separate dining room, your NJ home remodeling contractor may be able to design your kitchen with an area reserved for a pub table or an island that can act as extra counter space, as well as a dining area by simply adding stools on one side. Our Design Experts Can Help Are you thinking of remodeling your NJ kitchen? Explore some of our beautiful kitchen designs on our website and call us today at (855) 624-6655 for a free estimate.

  • 0 Home Improvement - 5 Ways to Prepare for Home Remodeling

    So, you’ve decided to remodel your home. You’re excited for all the changes to come, and you’re wondering what your next move is. It is essential to think about the things that you can do to prepare your home for a successful remodel before contractors begin your renovations. The team at Magnolia Home Remodeling has you covered with a 5-step checklist that will put your New Jersey home in the best position for home improvement contractors to get to work. Home Improvement Preparation Checklist Clear the space that will be undergoing renovations Before contractors can begin their work, it is important to clear any wall hangings and furniture that may get in the way of the job. This will not only make the work go more smoothly, and possibly faster, but you will also be able to continue using your furniture in other rooms while renovations are taking place. Get creative with your temporary living areas Use the time in between establishing a design plan and getting home improvement contractors in the door to plan multifunctional living areas in your house that will make up for lost space during renovations. For example, you may need to move your television and a comfortable chair into the bedroom for the time being, so that you have a temporary living room. If you have pets, create safe areas for them Home improvements can often come with loud noises and dangerous equipment. Pets can be easily startled by the chaos surrounding major renovations. Find a space in your home where you can let your pets safely roam around, that is blocked off from areas that are being remodeled. Make room in your garage for large deliveries Before extensive renovations begin, it is important to clear some space in your garage and other areas where home improvement contractors may need to deliver materials. Prepare meals and buy disposable dishes The kitchen is an especially inconvenient space to have remodeled. It is important to prepare your meals based on how long renovations are due to last, and consider moving a toaster, microwave or other portable cooking equipment to another room. Additionally, renovations can cause a large mess, and without access to a kitchen, it will be difficult to wash your dishes. If your kitchen is undergoing major renovations, disposable dishes may be the easiest option for dining. Our Home Improvement Contractors Can Help Are you thinking about remodeling your home?

    Check out these Siding Tips! Let’s face it, the wrong paint combo or worn exterior can make your house look shabby and negatively impact its market value. If your home’s siding is looking a little worse for the wear, or if it’s simply time for an exterior update, you have plenty of options to consider.     Let’s face it, the wrong paint combo or worn exterior can make your house look shabby and negatively impact its market value. If your home’s siding is looking a little worse for the wear, or if it’s simply time for an exterior update, you have plenty of options to consider.   The great news is that siding is available in a wide range of materials, colors, and styles made to fit virtually any budget. Return on investment is an important consideration for a home remodeling project, and siding replacement is one renovation that typically carries a good return—approximately 76 percent, according to Remodeling magazine’s 2019 Cost vs. Value Report   What type of siding would be best suited to fit your needs? VINYL SIDING Lightweight and durable. In many cases, vinyl siding can be installed over your existing siding (provided the original layer is in good shape), which makes it an excellent choice for retrofitting your NJ home. Vinyl siding is easy to maintain. Vinyl siding can be washed off with a hose when it gets dirty! New vinyl siding is less prone to fading after years of sun exposure than older products.  WOOD SIDING Typically made from cedar or redwood, wood siding, when properly cared for, is an incredibly durable product. Cedar and redwood naturally resist decay and insect infestations. Damaged or cracked planks and shakes are easy to replace. Wood siding is easy to paint, stain, and seal based on homeowner preferences.  FIBER CEMENT SIDING Long expected lifespan and positive impact on home value. Fiber-cement siding is sturdy, virtually maintenance-free, and resists insect infestation. Planks can be manufactured to resemble different textures, such as stucco or stone. Fiber-cement products come pre-finished in a range of colors or primed and ready for a custom paint color. The siding can be painted if you decide to change the color in the future.  BRICK VENEER Brick veneer is much less expensive than a solid brick exterior, and looks just as nice. Brick is virtually maintenance-free with unparalleled resistance to termites and fire. Brick veneer is typically constructed with salvaged brick, so it is considered an eco-friendly cladding option. ONCE YOU HAVE MADE UP YOUR MIND You’re in the final steps of deciding to replace the siding on your house. Siding isn’t cheap and you are operating on a budget. But here’s the thing; replacing the siding on your NJ home is one of those things where you truly do get what you pay for. There is no doubt that high-quality siding adds significant value to your home. Here’s what to keep in mind as you make your decisions: First things first. Make sure that your home really does need new siding. Do your research!

  • 0 To Move or to Remodel Your NJ Home: 4 Things to Consider

    Homeowners in New Jersey are constantly questioning whether the trouble of hiring contractors to remodel their home is worth it, or if it would be better to simply move elsewhere. Every home is unique, and it is important to weigh all the pros and cons when considering expensive renovations.   New Jersey’s expert remodeling contractors at Magnolia Home Remodeling have put together a list of things that you need to consider before making these major decisions about your home.   How long you plan on staying in your NJ home   Whether you are simply looking to remodel your bathroom, finish your basement, install an outdoor kitchen, or you are planning a total home makeover; it is important to consider how long you will be happy living in your home. Many homeowners in New Jersey opt to downsize as their kids move out or move to a home with fewer stairs when they reach a certain age. Before investing a large amount of money into hiring remodeling contractors, think about how much time you will realistically have to enjoy the renovations.   The potential to sell your home at a higher price   If you do not plan on living in your home for very long post-renovations, it is important to be realistic about your home’s value in the housing market. If neighboring homes are selling at a much lower price than you’re aiming for, you may have a hard time getting buyers interested. Consider the amount of money that you are planning to put into renovating versus your potential to increase the value of your home.   Your attachment to the neighborhood   How long have you lived in your home? Have you developed friendships with your neighbors? Are your kids in walking distance from their school? These are important questions to ask when considering a move. If you are satisfied with the neighborhood that you live in, then it may be worth it to create an entirely new space on the property that you already own.   Local laws that may get in the way of renovations   With many NJ homeowners living near the water, home remodeling contractors may run into problems with flood protection programs, or zoning laws. Depending on the scope of your remodeling plans, this may be a factor in your decision to move or to remodel.   Call us today at (855) 624-6655 to speak to a member of the Magnolia Home Remodeling team for expert advice on all your home remodeling needs.

  • 0 Why replace the windows in your NJ Home

    • Windows

    • 31-07-2019

    New Jersey weather can be quite unpredictable. Seasons change dramatically and your home's windows play a very important role in your life. The best windows provide natural lighting, increase air flow, and make your house look great from the inside out. Windows also play a big role in your home's efficiency. Modern windows offer better insulation, which makes it easier for your heating and cooling system to keep your home cozy. If you're looking for a home improvement that can provide numerous benefits, replacing old windows might be the answer. Take a look at the ways window replacement can improve your home. Then decide if this upgrade is right for you and your family: Save on your Energy Costs BIG TIME If, like most people in NJ, your energy bills are skyrocketing, replacing the windows in your home may be the solution. Up to thirty percent of the air your heating and cooling system creates is lost through windows and doors; that means 30 percent of the energy you pay for is wasted! IF YOUR WINDOWS ARE MORE THAN 10 YEARS OLD, REPLACING THEM MAY PUT AN END TO YOUR SKYROCKETING HEATING AND COOLOING BILLS. Modern windows provide better insulation, helping keep cool air in during those New Jersey summer months and preventing heat loss during those cold New Jersey winters. If your home offers better temperature control, you won't have to run for the A/C or heater as often. The less you have to rely on your heating and cooling system, the less you'll pay in energy bills. A recent study by Energy Star revealed that by switching out your single-pane or even your newer double-paned, clear-glass windows to energy-efficient windows, you can save up to $465 a year. Make Your Home Extra Safe & Secure For Your Family Replacing your home's windows can provide another layer of safety and provide a little peace of mind. The right windows can keep your NJ home will better protect from unwanted intruders. New film technology helps prevent injury should a window break. Modern glass panes are designed to deliberately splinter into small, little tiny pieces, instead of shattering into large shards. This is especially important if you have very small children that often zoom around without looking where they are going first!  Improve your Curb Appeal of Your New Jersey Home Replacing your windows is usually a big investment, however, it's one that pays off in terms of curb appeal. Your windows are always visible. Selecting the right style, material, and color can help improve the look of your home—both inside and out. Your home looks great, and works more efficiently for your family. Improving your curb appeal will also lead to increased property value. A report from The National Association of Home Builders say energy efficient windows are one of the top 10 features builders are most likely to include in new homes.  Improves Your Family’s Happiness and Overall Well Being After all, your home should be your safe haven, and where important memories are created. You would like to make sure every minute spent inside your home is comfortable. New windows provide more natural lighting, and can help with noise reduction—especially important if you live on a busy street! New replacement windows offer better UV protection. This helps keep your kids safe from UV rays and protects your furnishings from fading. New windows also mean less maintenance; older, more traditional frames require extensive cleaning, repainting, and refinishing. With new, durable window frames you can spend more time enjoying the comforts of your home, and less time working on it. From improved comfort to significant energy savings, there's much to gain from replacing your New Jersey homes windows.

  • 0 Can I save money by replacing windows during the cold winter months?

    • Windows
    • by Magnolia Home Remodeling
    • 15-07-2019

     ABSOLUTELY! The GOOD NEWS is that when you replace your windows during the cold months you will surly notice an immediate difference in room comfort. The GREAT NEWS is that the winter weather will not prevent you from having new replacement windows installed in your home. Also, Magnolia Home Remodeling crews will take extra precautions to ensure your home stays warm and comfortable during the entire process of the replacement window install. Can I save money by replacing windows during the cold winter months?  YOU BET! MAGNOLIA HOME REMODELING OFFERS EXTRA SAVINGS INSTALLING REPLACEMENT WINDOWS IN THE WINTER FOR ‘OFF SEASON’ DEALS!  A big misconception for New Jersey homeowners is that replacing your homes windows is generally better to do during the warmer months.  During winter, brisk and chilly temperatures make it easy to find the defects in faulty or old windows. The drafts coming from seals, cracks, and poorly insulated windows seem to be magnified the most during cold weather. Deciding to replace the windows in your NJ home is a decision that should be made based solely on their condition. Temporary DIY solutions such as weather stripping or putty only prolong your window issues, it does not solve them. Just keep in mind that there are benefits choosing to replace your NJ homes windows during any month regardless of the temperature outside.  How Long Will My Window Installation Take? Replacing your windows during the winter is a quick and easy task. Most NJ homeowners are unaware that a professionally certified contractor will typically complete a window installation within one working day. Many New Jersey homeowners have the misconception that installing windows or patio doors in the winter is a bad thing. They hold off because they are afraid too much cold air will get in the house or they will get a poor installation. It’s just not true. It doesn’t really matter when the window or door is installed. In winter, the installation might take a tiny little bit longer because our installers are taking care not to leave openings exposed for too long. In reality, the opening will only be exposed to the weather from 20 minutes to an hour. How do I know if my Windows Need to be Replaced? If you can feel air coming in, or a draft, it’s definitely time to replace your windows. If you have a double pane glass and in the morning there is condensation between the two panes of glass, you have a seal failure, which means that the windows are not working as efficiently as they should. If there is condensation on the interior pane and not between the glass, you have a moisture issue that needs to be addressed. The moisture level of your house should be between 30 and 32 percent humidity. Otherwise you risk hitting the dew point, which results in condensation forming, much like condensation forms on a mirror in a steamy bathroom. Tip: If you have blinds, don’t close them all the way. Leave them open about two inches from the bottom to allow warm air to wash over the glass, which will help condensation from occurring.   Top 4 Reasons New Jersey Homeowners Should Replace Their Windows During The Winter Months 1.) Worry about losing significant heat during the process: NJ homeowners fear that there will be significant heat loss from windows left open during a winter replacement window installation. In actuality, this will not be an issue as our installation crews will typically focus on changing one window at a time. Doing so ensures maximum comfort and gives each window more attention. Many homeowners also fear that sealants and insulating foam will not settle properly in the cold. In reality, it is possible to install windows successfully in temperatures that are as low as -20’C. In fact, sealant materials used in colder months tend to be more weather resistant and durable than those used in warmer months. 2.) Easier to uncover problems with your windows: If you just bought a new home, it is better to wait one winter before replacing your windows unless, of course, they are falling apart.  That is because the extreme temperatures and weather winter brings is the best environment to reveal any weaknesses your existing windows have. Material contracts when exposed to cold weather and any leaks or drafts will become way more apparent during the colder, draftier weather.  3.) More installation dates available: Many people put off winter projects merely because they think they do not have enough time for it. Conversely, there are likely more dates available to choose from during the winter. Summer is the busiest time for window installations so, if you wait until then, you will not have as many dates to choose from. Plan window installation as early as possible will ensure you can accommodate other commitments and projects. 4.) Get a better deal! As it is for most window installers, our busiest season is during warm months. So, for this reason we offer some spectacular replacement window deals and best special offers during the winter months as an incentive for our New Jersey homeowners. You can benefit more from ‘window’ shopping around during the slow season when window installers are more likely to lower prices to get your business.
