Weather King steel entry doors are manufacturerd in Michigan!

Home Base Home Improvement & Construction, Michigan door installation experts install only top quality local brands like Weather King steel entry doors.  

All Weather King New Construction Steel Entry Wood Edge doors combine the beauty and strength of 24 gauge galvanized roller coated steel that is engaging painted wood edges with a 'J' Bend for a positive interlock.
The prime painted door is a roller coat prime baked to the steel before the steel is made into the door. This higher grade finish is by far superior than anything that can be sprayed on later.


The white finish painted door is a roller coat finish that is a "Poly-Tex" finish that is an extra hard finish that, due to the texture, reduces scratches or scuffs. 

The rigid polyurethane foam core bonds the door assembly and provides an insulation value that is 4 times greater than wood.

The punched and routed lockset and dead bolt bores are reinforced with wood lockblocks (9" in prime and 12" in white) for extra strength & security.

QUALITY FEATURES


HYDROSHIELD TECHNOLOGY
Our superior water resistant seal protects our doors against water infiltration on all sides to prevent warping, delamination, corrosion, rotting, and buildup of mold and mildew.

5 Reasons to choose Gaco Wallfoam spray polyurethane foam insulation


SEAMLESS AIR BARRIER
Superior home insulation begins by keeping outside air out &inside air in. The more better the "Air Seal" the better your insulation will be. Superior Air Seal begins & ends with Gaco WallFoam.




SOLID INVESTMENT
Gaco WallFoam provides energy savings of up to 40% in all climates and seasons. In many cases the initial cost of Gaco WallFoam pays for itself within 5 years.


A HEALTHIER HOME
Gaco WallFoam eliminates the possibility of root causes of mold growth, pollutants, rodents, and pests from entering your home.


A STRONGER HOME
Gaco WallFoam is sprayed into the stud wall cavity tying the studs and the exterior sheathing together as one, resulting in a stronger home.


HIGH R-VALUE
A higher R-Value will provide more insulation value per inch than a product with a lower value. The result is a rapid return on your investment through heating and cooling savings.

Its not too late to insulate your home for the winter!

As winter pushes forward and the inevitable Michigan polar vortex closes in, it may be time to think about insulating the attic! Look no further, Home Base Improvement & Construction is your Downriver, Michigan insulation installer experts. Heres a few tips to consider when choosing insulation for your home and why Owens Corning insulation may be the perfect fit.


Insulating with EcoTouch® PINK® FIBERGLAS™ Batts & Rolls
The most affordable way to keep your home comfortable is to install insulation in your attic. We make this easy with our EcoTouch® PINK® FIBERGLAS™ Batts & Rolls . For maximum energy efficiency, we recommend about 18 inches of insulation for attic floors. If your joist cavities are completely filled, lay the new insulation in long runs perpendicular to the joists, and use leftover pieces for small spaces. Remember to keep insulation 3” away from recessed lighting fixtures and from any metal chimneys, gas water heater flues or other heat-producing devices.


Help reduce mold and improve ventilation
Without effective cross-ventilation, summertime heat buildup in the attic can result in a wasteful and costly strain on a home’s cooling system… and on your comfort. And in the cold months of winter, harmful ice dams can form if trapped moisture is not removed. A well-ventilated attic, on the other hand, has undereave or soffit vents, which allow fresh air into the attic. Installing our raft-R-mate® attic rafter vents between rafters keeps air flowing properly up to the ridge, where vents allow the air to exit, helping to keep your home comfortable and dry.


Insulating your attic stairway
Even if your attic is well insulated, you may be leaving a perfect path for energy to escape—right up the stairway. But the Owens Corning Attic Stairway Insulator helps eliminate this insulation gap to better protect against heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. Designed to fit perfectly over standard attic stairwell openings, it's lightweight, easy to install and delivers an R-value of 10. Used with the other attic insulation components mentioned here, it provides excellent energy performance for your home.

6 Signs your roof might need repair or replacement

Danger signals of a failing roof.


Does your attic show signs of leakage after a severe rain storm?  Although its mid-summer, this might not be a new problem. The damage may have occurred after months of ice build up, or after a long hard winter. The ice and snow accumulates in ice dams and if inadequate shingles aren't doing the job it's time to call an expert roofing company, Home Base Improvement & Construction.
 



Avoiding these signs of damage can cause interior and exterior paint to blister and peel. High humidity combined with poor attic ventilation are top suspects.



 

If you notice mold and mildew stains on your ceilings and walls it might be more then just time for a new paint job, it could be harmful to your health! Black mold spores are toxic and if inhaled can cause a long list of respiratory illnesses. This is something to consider when babies, children, or the elderly share living space with you.



Are your shingles cracked and curling, or worse, missing all together? This happens when you neglect your roof afters years of bad weather.




Do you notice, dark, discolored, or dirty-looking areas on your roof? If so, the shingles are wearing off their granules and are losing their protection, most the time this occurs from an aging roof.




Are you experiencing a spike in high energy cost? While many factors may come into play for this to happen, chances are inadequate ventilation is trapping hot air in the attic causing your A/C to work harder. Have no worries, Home Base Improvement & Construction is here to help you answer any roofing questions you might have.

Home Base Improvement & Construction proudly recommends and installs GAF roofing shingles because of their high quality and reliablity. Call today for a free estimate from a certified and licensed Michigan Roofing Contractor.
