Are You Ready for Summer Storms?

The arrival of summer typically means sunny days and warm weather, but sometimes it can also mean cloudy skies and summer storms. Do you have everything you need to protect your home against the elements? Living in the Midwest, it’s important to make sure your house is prepared for whatever Mother Nature dishes out.


Tri-State features Berkshire windows, one of the most respected names in the vinyl window industry. With features like Gradient true sloped sill and LinkSync sash-to-sill interlock, Berkshire windows are the only choice for preparing your home for a summer storm. The true sloped sill drains water quickly to prevent buildup of moisture and debris without the need for weep holes, increasing protection from inclement weather. The sash-to-sill interlock increases control against extreme winds, ensuring you and your home are safe.


When the wind gets going, it can severely damage the look of your home if you don’t have durable siding. Tri-State offers highly durable vinyl siding that exceeds industry impact standards. Royal Crest Vinyl Siding, for example, achieved a test pressure of 49.70 lbs/ft2, equating to a wind speed of 144 mph. To put that in perspective, according to the Fujita Scale, the average tornado will have wind speeds of only 112 mph! This is how you know that Tri-State offers the very best.


When it comes to impact resistance, metal roofing is unparalleled. Its strength and weather resistance makes for a smart choice for houses in severe storm areas. As a bonus, Tri-State’s Stone Coated Steel roofs can be just as attractive as they are durable. Their styles can look like virtually any roof you can imagine and still withstand a heavy winter storm.

Are you getting ready for storm season? Or have you already endured the damage of a storm? Let Tri-State Home Improvement help by making sure your home is protected for years to come. Contact us today to request a free in-home estimate!

Siding: Not What it Used to Be

Howdy folks, it’s Hank here from Tri-State Windows, Siding and Roofing!

When I first moved into my new, 5-story oak tree home, I knew that I had a fixer-upper on my paws. The grass and twigs used in the foundation of my nest needed sprucing up, not to mention the siding on my walls needed major upheaval.

Even though I live in a tree, I knew better than to choose wood as my new siding!

Modern vinyl is a much more attractive and durable alternative to traditional siding. The warping, fading and chipping all too common in real wood siding is virtually nonexistent, plus the Haven vinyl I chose for my home was still able to give me that wooden look I love without the maintenance.

Even older versions of vinyl aren’t up to par. Vinyl siding is now a much stronger product than it was 20 to 30 years ago, and also offers many more styles, textures and colors than before.

Not only does modern vinyl offer homeowners effortless long-term beauty, it is also a much more eco-friendly option! The insulation used in new types of vinyl is much better at keeping your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter and you’ll also be helping save trees!

Which, side note folks, I would sure appreciate … so that my nutty cousins can keep their home in the Amazon and not have to move in with me. They gobble up my roasted walnuts enough on Thanksgiving!
