Seamless or Sectional Gutters: What’s the Difference?

gutter_contractor2

Gutters and rooflines can be some of the most under-appreciated and misunderstood features of a home, but they work together to accomplish an important goal: protecting your home from the elements. While they quite obviously shield your interior from direct rain, what many people don’t realize is how destructive the sheer weight of water and debris can be to every part of your home — right down to the foundation.

The choice of gutters, however, always seems unclear. There are various styles or seamless or sectional gutters, and several types of screens and guards to help protect them. While much of the difference comes in terms of the cost of installation, maintenance, and repairs over the life of your home, the nature of the environment your roof and gutter systems are protecting your home from has a lot to do with which choice will really net you the best protection. We’ll cover some of the general advantages of seamless and sectional gutters below (and you can read more about gutter guards here) but a local gutter contractor like Aerotech in St. Louis can tell you more about the environmental considerations specific to your home.

Ok, so sectional or seamless?

In the past, gutters were mass-produced according to specific lengths. As a result, when they were installed, they had to be installed in sections and joined with sealants. But as with all things, these sealants with time become corroded, resulting in leakages. However, when seamless gutters were introduced, they completely eliminated the need for these sectional gutters, as one piece can be molded and installed in to fit your roofline.

That said, we’ll be frank: all gutters leak. This is due, in part, to the fact that there will always be junctions where you’ll need to join with another side or feature of your gutter system.

Minimizing Leakages

In any gutter system, joints will require the application of sealants to ensure that the gutters stay leak-proof. With seamless gutters, there will be fewer joints, and fewer leaks for that reason. And, luckily, any leaks that occur can generally be fixed without removing anything, so the size and length of seamless gutters tends to only factor in when having to make larger repairs.

Minimizing Repair Costs

For most gutters, repairs often center on rotting, leaks, and corrosion caused by stagnant water or the weight of melting ice. Sectional gutter systems, with more joints, will tend to suffer the weight of this abuse more than seamless gutter systems. In more extreme cases of damage, the larger seamless gutters may become more complicated to repair or replace but this becomes less of a concern if they are regularly cleaned and maintained.

Ease of Cleaning

Seamless gutters are generally much easier to clean, and that’s a real help, since you’ll never want to fall behind on cleaning them. The disadvantage to sectional gutters is the fact that their joints tend to produce a lot of hard-to-reach areas that can start to collect debris or ice. Being more troublesome to clean and more prone to clogs and the like can contribute to higher maintenance investments, though this can vary depending on the type of foliage in your area and how far away from your roofline the nearest trees are.

Ease of Installation

In spite of their bulk, seamless systems are pretty easy and cheap to install. With sectional gutters, you or your contractor would end up spending a lot more time trying to get the right fit and adding sealants.

In the end, seamless gutter systems do tend to come out on top. But the performance and life of your roofline and gutter systems still hinges on keeping them clean and taking your environment into account. If you’re unsure of the system that works best for your home, it’s worth a little more research, and at least a phone call to a licensed contractor.

Family Travel Must-Haves

Holy week is fast approaching and once again we are given an opportunity to reflect on both the good and bad things that we’ve done this past year. Although Holy Week is a period of contemplation, it’s also a time to relax and take some time off from our busy schedules, a chance for us to be with our family and friends. What better way to spend time with them than to take a trip. When you’re traveling with kids, it’s important to pack carefully. So as not to forget anything, try to make a list first of the must-haves and take it from there.

Clothes should be sufficient. Bring patterned clothes and dark colors instead of whites and dress in layers rather than bring bulky sweaters. Also bring pajamas for the children, jackets, socks, thermal pants, hats, sunglasses, and shoes. Bring soap, toothpaste, lotion, and sunscreen. Unilab, the biggest pharmaceutical and healthcare company in the Philippines, with its portfolio comprising some of the biggest prescription and consumer healthcare brands, has the practical Celeteque Dermoscience Hydration Travel Kit which includes facial wash, toner, and moisturizer. For those traveling with a baby, don’t forget extra diapers, wipes, and baby wash such as Unilab’s TriSoPure – a mild gentle cleanser formulated with pH 5.
 photo essentials-for-travel-02_zpsz8hegiis.jpg
It’s a given to bring food, water, and essential vitamins and minerals like Conzace, and other medicines. Never forget a first aid kit which includes bandages, plasters, thermometer, insect repellant, painkillers, sterile gauze, and Calamine lotion. Medicine for headache, fever, and flu like Biogesic, should also be brought. Aside from those, an emergency kit containing items like flashlight, extra batteries, blanket, and plastic bin should always be present. To counter the long hours traveling by land, air, and sea, bring gadgets like laptop with a DVD drive, portable DVD player, tablets, MP3 player, and game console. Add to that some books and magazines. Don’t forget your adaptors and of course your camera.

Coping with Challenges as a Single Parent

 photo dad-and-child-550x275_zps0ugrp43a.jpg

Nearly 14 percent of the children aged up to 15 are raised by a single parent, an international study shows. Most of the single parents are moms and they face some unique challenges. If you’re trying to be everything that your child needs and you’re alone, you know these challenges really well.

It’s a fact that the children of single parents may have bigger struggles than others. Some studies, however, show that they usually grow up to be more responsible than their peers. Being a great single parent is possible but it can be draining. Providing for the family, being there for your child, dealing with stress and loneliness will definitely get to be too much on occasions. This is why you need to familiarize yourself with the best techniques for coping with the challenges of being a single parent.

The Most Common Challenges that Single Parents Face

Single moms and dads have to deal with various issues that couples raising children don’t experience.

  • Scheduling: as a single parent, you’ll have to be in five different places at the same time. Even if you have one child, you know that scheduling can be a big issue. Being a parent, working and finding the time to eventually date (dating, what was that?) will probably seem impossible at least until your kids turn 18.
  • Dealing with the financials: as the only adult in the household, you’re the sole breadwinner. Raising kids and providing for them on a single income will require a lot of imagination and many extra hours of work.
  • Being there for your child: in every sense that a parent should be there. Helping for homework writing, attending school plays, playing sports together, meeting with teachers to discuss problems, working on crafts projects – you get the picture.
  • Dealing with loneliness and loss: the loss of a partner and the desire to have a significant other will always be your companions. While you’re feeling lonely, however, you’ll always feel obliged to be strong for your kids.
  • Societal prejudices: these can make the life of a single parent much more difficult. Only single moms and dads know just how devastating prejudices and negative attitudes can be.
  • Dealing with the rest of the family: your mom and dad, your siblings and extended family could be helpful but they could also add to the challenges of being a single parent. The same applies to your former spouse.
  • Self-confidence issues: many single parents struggle with inadequacies and low self-esteem that prevent them from dating and enjoying romantic experiences with a potential significant other.

Changing Your Mindset

The first step towards being a successful parent and a happy person involves changing your mindset.

For a start, determine what your priorities are. These are the things you should be focusing on. Everything else is secondary. Don’t spend your time and don’t waste your energy on things that don’t matter in the long run. You’ll find yourself to be a happier person, once you set your priorities straight.

Boundaries come right after priorities when it comes to changing your mindset. These are the ones that you should work on together with your kids. You deserve some “me time” to be a functional parent. Let kids know about your responsibilities and about theirs. Everybody in the household should have a role. Working on happiness and growth together is the best way to make it happen – you can’t handle everything on your own.

The final and probably the most important thing to remember is that you deserve happiness. Don’t turn yourself into a martyr. Your kids will turn out just fine, even if you give yourself a break now and then or you go on a date. The sooner you start believing in those things, the happier and more productive you’re going to be.

Seven Tips for Overcoming the Challenges

A changed mindset isn’t sufficient to address all of the challenges you’re going to face as a single parent. You can come up with a couple of additional coping strategies:

 

  • A support system: connect with other single parents. They are the only people who understand the challenges you’re facing and can give you adequate suggestions for making things better.
  • Understand that you can’t do the work of two people: chores, work, helping kids – you can’t handle everything that two parents can. Once you understand that you can’t get everything done, you’ll start prioritizing the most important things.
  • Consider a more flexible work schedule: the world is changing and you don’t need the nine to five routine. Many people are opting for telecommuting opportunities or a home-based business. By making this kind of change, you can continue earning enough while enjoying some flexibility.
  • Slow down and relax: close your eyes, count to 10, do some deep breathing exercises. Relaxation techniques are essential for dealing with the stress when it gets to be too much.
  • Celebrate the successes: give yourself a pat on the back every now and then, you deserve it.
  • Allow your parents to help you: we’ve already talked about super-parent syndrome. You don’t have to be strong and efficient all the time. Let your parents know that you’re struggling, they’ll probably love to help you.
  • Discipline is essential: you may feel tempted to address every wish that your children have in an attempt to compensate for the lack of two parents. Don’t underestimate the importance of discipline. Set house rules and stick to them strictly. Discipline will make everybody’s life a whole lot easier.

These shortcuts will definitely take some of the stress away. We have to be honest – it’s not going to get easy. Still, by focusing on change and structure, you can enjoy a happier life. Both you and your children deserve it.

Four Things That Home Improvement Shows Don’t Tell You About

Home improvement shows! We all love them. So you are flipping through the channels on a lazy Sunday morning and bam! You come across a reality show where the parents are in the middle of a blazing argument. The kids are screaming in the background because the garage doors fell off their hinges. The whole family is at the point of breaking apart because their home was old, creaky and hasn’t had a renovation in ages. There is a lot of name calling and blame shifting. As if by magic, the host of your home improvement show appears at their doorstep magically, with his magic home renovating wand. After the entire family cries on his shoulder for a good fifteen minutes, everything seems to take an optimistic edge. From there onwards, everything seems so easy and uphill. So you find yourself slouching on the sofa, watching more episodes of the show back to back. Well, while it is good and sometimes educational to watch such shows, sometimes they can be a little misleading. So before you get inspired by such shows and tear apart your house to renovate it, here are things that the nice people on the reality TV show never told you about. Before you try any of these jobs on your own contact a professional like Summit Point Roofing first.

Timelines are Bogus

In your favourite reality show, everything seems to be done within a space of three days or so. Since they don’t claim to do it within the duration of the show, you somehow believe that all it took to revamp that entire house is only three days. Well, it doesn’t work that way. Renovating a house takes a lot of planning and effort. It cannot be done in three days, for sure. Experts in the construction trade say that in order to renovate and revamp an average sized home, it takes at least 6 weeks. This may vary depending on the condition that the house is in. Whatever said and done, you simply cannot renovate a house in three days. So if you were having big plans to renovate your house over the weekend, think again.

Renovation Budgets Can Stretch

In most reality shows, they simply do not show the budgeting bit. They seem to stick to particular budget up to the nearest penny. Well, the thing is, renovation budgets are not permanent. They change all the time. They change if you change your mind about the floor or if you decide to fire your plumber. So, it is best to work with a buffer. If you calculate a certain amount to be your renovation budget, keep at least 30% extra. Keep scrupulous records of everything. Whenever you pay a contractor, write it down. File the receipt. A lot of people go over the budget simply because they have no idea how much of it they have used already.

Not everything is utterly useless

In many home improvement reality shows you can see the host gleefully tossing away everything in the house. Well, the thing about reality TV is that it is made for drama. By tossing out everything in a house, the show achieves its dramatic effects. Well, but it doesn’t have to be that way for your own house. You need not toss every single thing in your house in order to revamp it. You also need not do it in a frenzy. If you indeed plan to renovate your house, go through each and every item of your house carefully. Think of what can be used and what really cannot be used. You will find that a lot of the items in your house are actually re-useable. Especially when it comes to antiques. So take your time and choose what stays and what goes.

You need not have a fight

Reality TV shows cater to people who live vicariously through other people’s drama. So almost all of them involve some sort of a fight or the other. When you are doing your own house, try not to get carried away. Everything does not have to end in a fight. Your children need not behave like screaming monsters. While renovating maybe portrayed to be a difficult time, in reality it is just the opposite. It is fun, interesting and can be an experience for the entire family. So talk to your family, get excited and plan the new house together. You may even involve your kids in some of the restoration work after school.
