Signs Of A Faulty Septic System

I thought I had a septic problem when my toilet and sink wasn't draining properly. This suspicion was confirmed when sewer water started backing up in my bathtub. I figured that this was a job for a professional, so I called a local sewer service company. Sure enough, my septic tank was full and this was causing the problem. After having my tank pumped out, my drains run freely and my toilet flushes better than it has in a long time. My name is Wesley Hammond and the experience that I had with my septic system is the reason that I'm writing this blog. Since sewage backup in the house is very unhealthy, everyone should be aware of the signs of a faulty septic system. As you read these articles, you'll learn about the different types of septic system problems and how you can keep them from happening.

Why Contractors Love Vinyl Siding

by Jacob Reed

When building a home, the exterior siding can have a huge effect on the energy efficiency, maintenance needs, style, and functionality of your property. There are quite a few great siding options to choose from. Vinyl siding is one of the most popular residential siding materials for some very good reasons. This article explains why you should consider vinyl as a siding material when building a new home:

Vinyl is Durable

Most people prefer exterior siding options that are durable. That is, you don't want a siding material that needs constant upkeep. The great thing about vinyl siding is that it is super easy to clean and it does not require any special treatment over the years. Vinyl is dyed and solid, meaning that the entire piece is the same color on the inside as it is on the outside. This helps reduce sun fading over the years.

Vinyl is also waterproof, so you don't need to worry about it wearing down, even if you live in a wet climate. Other materials need to be repainted over the years in order to maintain the water resistant finish. However, this is not the case with vinyl. It will remain waterproof and fade resistant without ever being painted or refinished.

Vinyl is Stylish

Few builders will argue against the durability and practicality of vinyl siding, but many will say that it is not a stylish option. In reality, the vinyl siding of today is far different form the low quality vinyl siding that was commonly used in construction from 1960-2000. Older vinyl looked like plastic and many people thought that it gave the property a manufactured, industrial feel. But modern vinyl siding comes in a rich array of textures, colors, and prints. For instance, there are products with very convincing wood prints that are popular for homeowners who want the look of raw wood but can't deal with the upkeep.

Vinyl siding comes in many different shapes, which can hugely effect their overall style. Panel siding is the the easiest to install and you can find DIY installation kits at most home improvement stores. However, shingle siding is popular if you want a more intricate, rustic look. Sheet siding is the most cost-effective because the pieces are large (about the size of plywood). When installing vinyl on the initial build of a home, sheet siding is the cheapest and fastest option.

Vinyl siding is a great material for new construction, no matter what style the home is. Contact a company like SBL Contractors LTD for more information and assistance.
