The Benefits of Berkshire Windows

Tri-State Home Improvement is proud to partner with Berkshire Elite high-performance vinyl windows to provide our clients with exceptional craftsmanship and remarkable energy-saving performance.

At Tri-State, we understand that home improvement isn’t a one-size fits all business which is why we back Berkshire. At Berkshire Windows, they take into account that homes in the Midwest have different needs than homes on the coasts, so every window we install is manufactured specifically for the areas in which Tri-State serves. Windows are custom-made to your exact specifications and are backed by decades of window manufacturing expertise.

Another reason Tri-State backs Berkshire is because of their value-added advantages including exterior, interior and energy saving enhancements for your home. Their exceptional craftsmanship, upscale design and expert attention to detail benefits your home’s curb appeal and increases its value.

Tri-State also understands that homeowners today are much more environmentally conscious than they were 20 years ago, and we’re proud to offer eco-friendly products, like Berkshire windows to help you in that endeavor. Berkshire Elite windows are precision-engineered to deliver superior energy efficiency and help reduce the consumption of fossil fuels needed for heating and cooling homes. The scrap vinyl material at the Berkshire manufacturing plant is also reused for other products, further reducing the volume and environmental impact of waste.

In addition to all of the features, Berkshire Elite windows also carry a lifetime limited warranty, which includes glass breakage, guaranteeing you lasting performance and genuine value.

Go Green with Tri-State Home Improvement

Tri-State is committed to the communities we serve and to our environment. Our goal is to reduce the waste associated with home improvement projects to make both our neighborhoods and Earth more beautiful and sustainable for years to come.

One easy, but effective, way we do this is by recycling doors. During a new door installation, our team of professionals determines whether an old door is in good enough condition for recycling. If so, it is delivered to the Quad Cities Habitat for Humanity where it will be available for others to use on their home improvement projects. This donation helps Habitat for Humanity provide strong and stable homes that build strong and stable communities.

In addition to recycling at our local Habitat for Humanity chapter, it’s also important to us that Tri-State works with suppliers and manufacturers that are committed to providing environmentally friendly products for your home.

It doesn’t stop there. Our commitment to the environment lasts long after our truck pulls away. Tri-State professionals install energy efficient solutions that positively impact your energy consumption and bills.

We’re proud to provide quality, lasting products for your home that work to keep inside air in, and outdoor air out. That means you’ll be comfortable keeping your thermostat lower and because your HVAC won’t be working overtime. This, in turn, reduces the amount of energy your home uses which helps the environment by reducing power plant emissions from burning coal, crude oil and other fossil fuels.

Whether you want to learn more about our commitment to the environment or you’re ready to get started on your home improvement, contact us today to start the conversation over a free, in-home estimate!

Don’t fall behind on roofing maintenance: Why fall is the best time to install a new roof

Camelot_Aged_Oak_Photo_2As one of your home’s most important features, you want to ensure your roof is installed in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible. To help save you time, money and increase your home’s protection, consider installing your new roof this fall—here’s why!

Saves time: Replacing your roof during the fall ensures your installation will not be delayed due to unworkable weather conditions. Unlike harsh winter weather, fall weather presents less of a threat to your roof and your installation crew, making the installation process quick and painless. Replacing your roof in the fall also gives your new roofing material enough time to settle and seal before the colder weather sets in.

Saves money: In addition to saving money on a quick installation, installing your roof in the fall will help you save money on your winter energy bills. By adding more insulation to your roof during installation, your home will retain more heat during the winter, reducing the cost it takes to heat your home.Not to mention, an unplanned roofing replacement in the winter can cost nearly twice as much as a planned replacement in the fall.

Increases protection: Installing a new roof in the fall allows you to thoroughly evaluate and repair any summer roofing damage that may have occurred. A fall installation also gives you enough time to deal with any roofing issues before winter elements make the damage worse and decrease your home’s protection.
