Local Roofers send child with Congenital Heart Disease to Chicago Bulls Game!

We always look for more ways than being local roofers and siding contractors to engage and give back to our customers. This time around, as some of you know,we opted to use our Aloha Construction BOX SUITE at the United Center to do something more heartfelt. Anthony Lynch was a 12 year old boy who had already been through 5 open heart surgeries due to being born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome and well as other congenital heart defects. Who would have thought this opportunity to give back to our roofing, siding, and gutter fans would have become so much more. Instead of give the tickets away, we opted to allow him and 11 friends to enjoy the Bulls vs. Rockets game! His first time at the united center.

According to WebMD, Congenital heart defect” is another way of saying your heart had a problem when you were born. You may have had a small hole in it or something more severe. While many can be treated with surgery, these are still very serious conditions. In some cases, doctors can find these problems during pregnancy. You might not get symptoms until adulthood, or you may not get any at all. In little Anthony’s case, this condition will prevent him from ever being able to play sports and, according to his mother, just a couple weeks ago he had an emergency trip to the cardiologist in which his EKG didn’t come back good; he’s got another battle ahead.

Hearing about people so young having to struggle so deeply motivates us to do more than replace shingles, vinyl siding, and downspouts. It motivates us to look for ways to give back to the children of our community in a massive and impactful way. How we will achieve this motivation systematically is still unclear…but we know we will help in whatever way we can. Although the Bulls lost, to think that something so minuscule to us was able to bring such positivity to someone who desperately needed it, has forced us to explore every angle we have to continue to do this.

For those of you interested in keeping tabs on Anthony, just stay tuned here. His mother and our team have promised to keep in touch as we plan on continuing to help in whatever way we can…if we can. We will give an update soon.

Hire a local siding contractor or Do-IT-Yourself?

DIY or siding contractor?

If you have replaced old siding with new siding, then you may be both competent and confident enough to take this exterior restoration project on yourself. The Do it yourself path will most often save you money, but it can take longer to complete and there’s no guarantee your craftmanship will last. For instance, we offer a 10 year warranty. Also, this will take much longer than a weekend. Local siding contractors working full time can take only half the time to side a home depending on the size and the weather conditions. If an expert takes weeks to finish siding a home, your do-it-yourself siding project will most likely exceed that amount.

If you have had little to no experience putting vinyl siding on homes, leave it up to trusted local siding contractors. Siding installation may look relatively easy, but this is not for beginners. Working around corners, eaves, soffits and fascia, along with trimming openings like windows, screens, and doors; are all technical aspects of the project that can be easy to get wrong. If you choose to replace the siding yourself, you need to know the extent of the storm damage to figure out whether to repair or completely remove old siding.

Some other factors to consider: You need to know how to spot, repair, and replace where mold, water, or vermin have damaged it. Do you know how to attach frieze board and sheathing? Which method lends itself to the type of siding (alumnimum, vinyl, etc.) you selected. You must have the skill and tools to cut the siding planks to fit. When it comes to siding, it will benefit both you and your home to hire a professional.

Replacing siding can make your home a lot more attractive, giving it a look that adds character and curb appeal. It can also make your home more energy efficient by keeping heat in and saving on utility bills  Siding replacement has consistently been one of the best home improvement projects for adding value to your home and is one of the few projects that can show a direct return on your investment.

Know what you’re getting yourself into before you begin to DIY your siding project…
