Total Home Improvement – Door Contractor has been Installing Doors, Siding, and Windows for over 15 years. We have a reputation of being known for details.
Siding is very detail oriented. Siding does more than just give your home a new appearance. Siding also helps with insulating factors.
Siding can be hung with or without insulation. Insulation can be added to the exterior of your home. Exterior insulation sometimes called Fan-Fold, Blue board, or Pink Board. Fan-Fold can be purchased in in several R Values.
Extra insulation will lower your energy costs. The energy savings over a 5 year period will be enough to pay for the siding itself. Energy saving and beauty all in one.
Insulation slows the transfer of heat. If its cold outside, Insulation will hold the heat in longer. If its hot outside, the insulation will hold the heat out longer.
Another huge loss of energy is through Doors & Windows. Replacing broken or defective Windows & Doors will also decrease energy costs in your home.
This insulation energy theory works the same with Doors & Windows as well. Doors themselves are insulated better and have better seals than older doors. Insulated doors with new seals that drastically slows the transfer of heat.

Door Windows work on the same principals. Door Windows (Lights) & Side Lights come in all shapes and sizes. Single Hung Windows, Double Hung Windows, & Slider Windows. The glass itself can be purchased as Single Pane, Double Pane, or Triple Pane Windows.
The glass itself can be coated with “Low -E” coating. The inner layers of glass can be filled with Argon gas. These two options can decrease the transfer of heat.
The term “Low-E” refers to low emissivity. Emissivity - a surface that emits radiant heat. All surfaces reflect, absorb, and transmit heat. Low-E applies to the glass being used. A Low-E coating reduces the amount of that heat transfer.
Argon Gas which is colorless and odorless is a molecule found in our own atmosphere. Argon gas is more dense than the air thus proving to be a better insulating factor.
Door Lights also Have Blinds built right into the windows. The Door Light Blinds can be purchased vertically or horizontal. They also come in a variety of colors.
