Maintenance of Thermally Efficient Insulated Garage Doors

Maintenance of Thermally Efficient Insulated Garage Doors

Maintenance of Thermally Efficient Insulated Garage Doors

Forming the largest opening within most homes, one aspect of energy efficiency that is often overlooked is the garage doors. Whilst a traditional up & over door may offer security to keep your valuables safe, it will offer very little in terms of thermal efficiency. With energy prices continually on the rise, many UK manufacturers have realised that there is now a market for insulated garage doors that will combine security with thermal efficiency and as such now offer them in a wide range of sizes, colours and designs to suit virtually every house type imaginable.

Although available in a wide number of materials, the most popular are examined more in detail below.

Compared to other materials used to make a garage door, steel is relatively cheap. The most common form of door constructed from steel is an insulated sectional garage door. Available in thicknesses ranging from 20-42mm, sectional garage doors are very popular because they can be made to look identical to traditional doors but with the added benefit of insulation that will reduce the amount of heat being lost from the home. Also, because they are simple to automate using any standard garage door motor, they can offer convenience to the user looking to use the garage on a regular basis for parking the car inside.

One other less popular form of insulated door made from steel are up and over garage doors, however due to the design and operating gear used are nowhere near as energy efficient as sectional garage doors and for that reason are only available from a limited number of manufacturers within the UK.

Whilst the natural properties of wood will always give a better aesthetic appeal to any property, the cost element is what restricts this type of insulated garage door be mass produced. For that reason, they only really tend to be available from specialist wood shops who will make the doors as and when required to do so by the customer. One up side to this is that you can choose to have the door in a one off design to really add value and comfort to your home.

Aluminium is the number one material used in the construction of insulated roller shutter garage doors as it is lightweight and durable. When combined with foam filled insulation, the 2 skins of aluminium become very rigid creating a very strong physical security barrier that will not only provide much needed insulation properties but will also be a very strong barrier should someone wish to gain access inside your property unlawfully. The drawback to insulated roller shutter garage doors is the fact that it is more expensive than steel and can dent quite easily. The plus points to this type of door however far outweigh the slight drawback and for that reason tend to be very popular with homeowners looking for a garage door they can install on a DIY basis.

The garage door is probably the largest and heaviest moving object within most homes and as such it is essential that adequate maintenance is carried out to prevent it from causing injury or even death should some of the parts fail.

In addition to the obvious cosmetic maintenance such as painting or staining, many other parts of the door will require inspection and maintenance.

Areas to look out for are the springs. These should be well lubricated and move smoothly. Additionally, the springs are also the part of the running gear that takes the weight out of the door as it rises so if an old door is heavy or difficult to lift, the springs will probably need re-tensioning. Please note this should only be carried out by a competent person or injury may occur.

Other areas prone to wear and tear are the cables and rollers. These will wear out over time and will need replacing should any damage be visible. Replacing the parts is easy and will not cost a great deal of money but will prolong the life of the door significantly.

It is also worthwhile checking all accessible nuts, bolts and fixings to ensure they are still tight an in their proper location. Should any loose items be found, simply retighten to the desired torque.

Where electric garage doors are installed, the safety features will require particular attention to ensure the door will stop should an object be detected therefore preventing injury. A simple way to test for this is to place a block of wood under the path of the door. As soon as the door panel touches the wood, the motor should sense the obstruction, stop, then reverse to free the object.

If this does not occur, adjustments can be made until the motor works to the desired level. Where garage roller doors have been installed, they will either have a photo cell safety beam or bottom rail safety edge. To test the photo cells, simply pass an object across the beam as the door is in operation. If the device is working correctly the door will stop. If the door keeps moving, the photo cells will probably need realigning.

To test the safety edge, follow the same manner as the standard boom operated door using the block of wood. With this information now available to you, there really is no excuse to ignore the garage door any longer.

One final consideration that may be more cost effective and require less maintenance in the long run is to install new garage doors. With many retailers now offering a wide range of door types such as up and over garage doors, sectional garage doors and even roller garage doors all available to buy online, you can often pick up a real bargain that will provide years of trouble free operation.

Floor Tile Options and Metal Ceiling Options For Your Home

Floor Tile Options and Metal Ceiling Options For Your Home

Floor Tile Options and Metal Ceiling Options For Your Home

Have you been considering re-tiling a floor in your home but wondered if there are any good alternatives to the traditional ceramic and porcelain tile that everyone seems to use? These days the answer is absolutely, yes. Here are just a few of the more unusual floor tiling options you might want to consider.

Saltillo tiles originated in Mexico and they differ from more conventional tiling types because they are air dried rather than kiln fired. The unique appearance of Saltillo tiles make them perfect for adding an earthy rustic charm to a kitchen or bathroom.

The fact that they are not fired does make them a little less durable than their kiln fired compadres but, if they are well sealed when they are being installed and treated with care, the difference is not too noticeable.

Glass tile for flooring? That idea surprises some people who would not have imagined that glass tile of any kind would be tough enough for flooring use. The fact is though that floor grade glass tile is just as tough as ceramic and when you chose to go with recycled glass tile it is a very eco friendly flooring choice as well.

Recycled glass floor tiles tend to be extremely attractive and unique since they are made up of so many different types of glass, often in the brightest and most attractive of colors. Is there anything that laminate flooring cannot pretend to be? Possibly not. Because laminate tiles are man made and their appearance depends solely upon the photograph that is embedded in the top layer they can be created to mimic almost any tile type usually for a fraction of the cost of the real thing.

Whatever type of tile you eventually opt for, the finished tile floor will only be an attractive and functional one if the person who installs it knows what they were doing, however much the tile itself cost. Tiling a floor is nowhere near as easy as they make it look on television so, unless you are a very experienced handy person, it is just one of those home remodeling projects best left to the pros.

These days it often seems like a lot of new houses just, well, look the same as every other house on the block, both inside and out. Homeowners eventually end up looking for new ways to make their homes stand out from the crowd of identikit homes, for both aesthetic and resale purposes.

One trend that is making a bit of a surprising comeback in the remodeling business is the installation of patterned and/or textured metal ceilings to replace all those dull and boring flat white painted ones that most new homes come equipped with as standard these days. Back in the late 1800s and the early years of the 20th century, metal ceilings were everywhere. Here in the USA stamped tin ceilings were the most common type of metal ceiling found in homes but more ornate brass and copper ceilings were not unusual.

Metal ceilings died out for common use as the 20th century progressed as they were replaced by cheaper and easier to install popcorn ceilings or that flat drywall that is above so many people’s heads. Now that metal ceilings are making a comeback, there are a number of options available for homeowners to choose from. The wonderfully ornate designs of long ago are still available but there are also plenty of ways a metal ceiling can be incorporated into the most contemporary of décor schemes to great effect.

Modern metal ceiling panels come in a huge variety of different patterns, colors, sizes, and finishes, which include traditional tin, steel, aluminum, copper, brass, chrome, and powder-coated finishes which will harmonize with any design scheme. If you choose a powder coated finish you can probably find any color you like, a great way to add a very unique twist to the ceilings in your home.

Metal side wall plates and other accessories like metal moldings, cornices, coves and miters are also popular choices for use with metal ceilings in home décor. These stamped metal ceiling panels also offer a great and very attractive alternative for kitchen back splashes or for installation behind wood stoves or fireplaces. The benefits of having a metal ceiling installed go beyond the merely aesthetic though. Metal ceilings won’t flake or chip or show dirt that easily. They have great sound absorption properties and will help keep in the heat in in the winter time and the cool in when summer comes around. They are also far easier to clean and won’t need repainting every couple of years to maintain their beauty.

Installing a metal ceiling is very unlike installing other types of ceiling though. In order to find a contractor who has experience in installing metal ceilings you may have to do a little more research than you might when looking for a “regular” ceiling installer. And because it is a less common type of installation it is even more important that you get those three (or more) estimates before you make a final hiring decision, just to make sure you really are getting a fair and reasonable price.

Newest Green Materials Used for Eco Friendly House Renovations

Newest Green Materials Used for Eco Friendly House Renovations

Newest Green Materials Used for Eco Friendly House Renovations

Each and every year, new and intriguing green building materials that promise energy efficiency and performance hit the market surrounded by quite a bit of buzz.

Technology drives much of the innovation when it comes to green building materials, and many of the latest products on the market increase the use of reusable, recyclable materials. Not only are these products green, they help create sustainable, greener buildings as well.

While there are hundreds of such green products that are new on the market, here are a few that grab attention.

Cross-laminated timber. CrossLam is one type of cross-laminated timber (CLT) structural panels made by gluing layers of softwood at right angles next to each other, creating panels that are light, stable in all directions, and can be used on flooring, walls, and roofing. CLT is made from less desirable wood, even wood taken from forests that were killed by mountain pine beetles. It was named by BuildingGreen.com as a top upcoming product.

Expanded-cork boardstock insulation. Cork-growers continue to expand the uses for their sustainable product, the result of a periodic harvesting process that doesn’t harm the trees. The latest is an insulation where cork pellets are steam-expanded and naturally bind to one another, creating excellent insulation characteristics without ozone-damaging flame retardants, according to Readinform.com

Viridian Reclaimed Wood. This company reclaims a variety of hard and soft wood from pallets, crates, and packing material to make flooring, tabletops, paneling, veneers, and more. The wood is heat-treated and kiln-dried without chemicals so that the product is clean.

Earth Measure stone. This stone product, which is made from the waste of stone manufacturing, is cut into specific patterns to mimic natural stone. It can be used from everything from pavers to walls to flooring, both inside and outside, as well as in horizontal and vertical applications, per BuildingGreen.com.

Low-E Windows. A clear coating of metallic oxide applied to the exposed surface of glass can reduce heat flow through the glass by 50 percent and reduce heating costs by 10 to 20 percent. Not only does the clear glazing not effect visibility, the result of one product by Cardinal Glass is low-e performance previously achievable only with a triple-glazed window.

Mineral Wool Board Insulation. Roxul manufactures wool board insulation, used in both commercial and residential applications, made from a minimum of 75 percent pre-consumer recycled content, primarily of iron ore slag. It’s fire resistant without using flame retardant, is rigid enough to be used as exterior insulation, and is an alternative to foam-plastic insulation.

If you’re looking at renovating with the environment in mind then there are a host of great options. You’ll be pleased to hear that these options are not only kind to the environment but also kind to the hip pocket. Eco-friendly doesn’t have to mean expensive. In fact often it’s about working with what you have or can reclaim. So here are five tips for an eco-friendly renovation.

Much of our energy consumption is dedicated to heating and cooling our homes, so turn your attention to insulation. If you’re having your roof redone as part of a reno, consider insulation sheeting directly below the roof, or if you’re retro-fitting insulation it’s a great idea to invest in high quality insulation above the ceiling, which can be easily fitted. Specialist roofing companies such as Roofmasters have some great tips on insulation for new or existing roofing.

On the subject of heating and cooling, turn your attention to your renovation design and embrace passive solar principles. This involves using sunlight to heat your home in the appropriate areas by positioning living areas with a northern aspect to allow in winter sunlight. North-facing windows provide twice the winter sunlight as east or west-facing windows do, while south-facing windows receive no direct sunlight at all. Where possible, minimise south-facing windows and shade western windows through external foliage or window treatments.
Harness The Sun

In the past couple of years there’s been a real push to utilize solar power within the home. There are still some great financial incentives for people looking to go solar. As a minimum, you can power your own home for a lot of the time, cutting power bills and energy consumption from the grid. At the other end of the spectrum you can be paid to feed your solar energy back into the grid.
Renovate Using Reclaimed Materials

Why pay for new when existing can be just as good, if not better? Why not give old building materials a new lease on life by either purchasing reclaimed materials or reworking what you already have? There are hundreds of building yards selling reclaimed building items, from gorgeous French doors to bathtubs, leadlight windows and even floor and wall tiles. Often they are also available at a fraction of the price of new products – all that’s required is a little extra hunting to find the things you need that suit your project.

A great way of minimizing your environmental footprint is by donating your unwanted building items. These may include windows, doors, old wood, roofing or even bricks. You can take comfort in the fact that although to you they are now rubbish they might be reincarnated elsewhere and save the environment just a little bit of landfill.

It’s easy to reduce our carbon footprint just a little through some small acts that add up over time. Any renovator should also be assured that by renovating they are already embracing a more sustainable alternative as they are not building from scratch.

Latest Designer Bathrooms To Cater To Your Family

Latest Designer Bathrooms To Cater To Your Family

Latest Designer Bathrooms To Cater To Your Family

Your bathroom is so much more than simply the place where you get cleaned up before you head off to work or freshen up at the end of the day. It’s our sanctuary from the pressures of our daily lives, a place to get away and relax with a long, hot bath. We all need a little time out to unwind in our day – and for most of us, the bathroom is where we do some of our best relaxing. We also tend to use this room to get away from other people so we can think in peace; and some of our best ideas can come while we’re in the bath. Given the amount of time that we spend in the bathroom, it’s nice to make this room look and feel like the relaxing refuge it can be.

Hence, bathrooms tend to become the temporary solution for releasing all the stress we tend to accumulate through out the day. A cold or hot shower in the bathroom can rejuvenate us in no time. Bathroom singing is a well-known way to exercise your lungs, vocal cords and just sing away your problems! With all these uses in place, naturally a bathroom is much more than a room; it is your retreat from the world.

This is perhaps one of the main reasons why people are now thinking about getting designer bathrooms. After all, if you spend such a lot of time in the bathroom, it should be a comfortable place to be in. A designer bathroom has all the modern amenities that are needed by the modern day individual to relax and unwind after a hard day’s work.

Interestingly, bathrooms were not even built into the houses until the twentieth century. Even today, certain areas, countries, and villages have bathrooms that are situated away from the main house. However, in the modern world, things have changed. These days, one cannot think of a bathroom without a bathtub, shower, toilet, and a washbasin. The more luxurious varieties also have designer sinks, cabinets, and beautifully designed taps for hot and cold water, massage showers and even shower cubicles. Some bathrooms even have stereo systems. So, you can simply put on your favorite music, sink into the bathtub, and relax completely. No doubt, such designer bathrooms not only look elegant but also give a feeling of tranquility and peace.

Bathtubs have also come a long way over time. Jacuzzis and similar hot tubs are becoming more popular in bathrooms as people discover the benefits of these relaxing tubs. There are also a great many types of showerheads on the market to choose from. Whether you prefer a massage experience from a pulsating showerhead or a body spray showerhead, you can have any setup you’d like in your designer bathroom.

There’s really no limit to what you can do with your own designer bathroom. Depending on your budget and your tastes, you can create any kind of look you’d like for this, one of the most important rooms in your home.

Sometimes when I am going to somebody’s home to give them a remodeling guesstimate, I provide them with many of the questions and responses, that they’re ever going to need.  This is how I am doing business, but some contractors do not do business this way.  Therefore , it’s your decision, the house owner to ask your bathroom reworking contractor the right questions.

There are tons of other questions you can ask your  contractor about your project. Make sure that you create a catalogue of questions and concerns and go over them with your lavatory remodeling contractor.  If you are not kidding about hiring a good contractor and you actually don’t want to have a lot of Problems while working on your project, you need to unscramble as many of the Problems as you can, before the job starts.

Of all of the rooms in the home the two most crucial to rework are the kitchen and bathroom.  These are 2 of the first rooms that guests generally see when they come into your home and two of the most used so it is only sensible to concentrate on these rooms.  When it comes to kitchen and rest room reworking you do want to take it slow and make certain you are getting the task finished right as it can be costly.  To get off on the right foot there are one or two choices for kitchen and lavatory transforming you want to make.

The best way to figure out what direction you need to go with your kitchen remodeling is to think about what sort of worktops you want in the room.  Each kitchen needs countertops of some sort and this may be one of the hardest decisions to make.  If you eat out more than you cook you aren’t going to need to fret about having too much counter space.  No matter what a home can gain benefit from a stunning island installed somewhere in the middle of the room for cultured appeal but also storage purposes.

The floor of your kitchen is also a major decision and it’s best to spend a little more cash and get a higher quality floor.  Ceramic tile and hardwood flooring are a couple of the preferred choices for kitchen flooring.  Vinyl works for some but it doesn’t look all that nice and can be damaged quite easily.  When it comes to the bathroom you can begin with the conceit and work your way round the room.

After you select what type of vanity you have an interest in seeing in the toilet you pretty much have the style of design selected for you.  You will go for an older style conceit and have the room with a vintage or traditional feel.  Or if you like modern looking sinks and mirrors that could be the better choice.  It’s your home so figure out what you like and what you would want to see in your bathroom every day.

There are benefits and disadvantages to either side of things, having a tub and not.  It’ll save a lot of room and money.  For the kitchen and loo transforming you might need to call in an expert to get their concepts on things.  At least then you can get a professional opinion and make sure you are doing things right first.

Reducing energy bills is usually the driving factor behind changes for sustainability and there are a number of things you can do to get your house ready.

When looking to purchase or update a home, these top sustainability tips are important to remember.

  • Embodied energy: This is defined as the total energy consumed by all processes linked to the building in question. With housing, this means knowing what the architects and builders intend to do to keep embodied energy low. Using locally sourced materials is one way to lower this total energy.
  • Landscaping: Most homeowners are aware of the rising costs of landscaping. Sustainable options that require less water and maintenance are now preferred in light of this.

  • Solar panels: Installing solar panels reduces costs and you get a federal tax credit. Solar panels may not be the most attractive addition to a home but they are valuable when it comes to making your home sustainable and energy efficient.
  • Lighting: Rely on natural lighting as much as possible as it is the cheapest option available. When artificial lighting is necessary, use LEDs. Energy-star products are best as they use 75% less energy and last 25 times longer than standard products.
  • Plumbing: Flushing toilets, showers, and washing dishes all run water right down the drain. More sustainable plumbing involves low-flow toilets and shower heads, aerators, and front-loading washing machines. An additional incentive is that many utility companies offer rebates when water-saving appliances and practices are used.
