The roof is arguably the most important aspect of your home. Not only is it a critical component of your home’s overall curb appeal, the roof is the first line of defense in keeping water out of and away from your home. Simple roofing mistakes can have costly consequences to the interior and structure of your home.
Flashing Not Fastened Properly During Installation
When installed properly, flashing prevents water from seeping into your home from the rooftop. Commonly made of metal or galvanized steel, flashing is found around roof vents, chimneys, windows, dormers and along any valleys in the roof. Properly installed flashing will have the U-shape facing toward the valley and be securely fastened along the edges. Flashing should be layered under the shingles, rather than on top of them, to prevent water seepage and consequent damage. According to the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors, counter-flashing installed along hard surfaces, such as stone or brick chimneys, will often be installed and fastened incorrectly. Check these areas closely for any gaps in the installation or sealant that could allow water access.
Pressure Washing the Shingles
We are very conscious of how our roof looks – we see it every time we pull in the driveway – and the itch to clean it can be strong when it appears dirty. Bringing a pressure washer to the roof with the intention of washing away some dirt can do far more harm than good. Blasting streams of highly pressurized water at composition roof shingles will remove more than dirt. Roof shingles are comprised of water-resistant materials including asphalt granules that protect your home from leaks. Pressure washing the roof will remove dirt and strip these granules from the shingles, leaving your home unprotected. If you strongly feel that your roof needs a cleaning, your best course of action would be to contact a professional roofer to discuss options you may have to improve the appearance of your roof.
Improper or Inadequately Ventilated Roof
A properly ventilated roof will allow moisture caused by temperature differences in the inside and outside air to escape from the attic areas of your home. Improper ventilation can trap this moisture causing mold and algae growth throughout your home’s structure. Improper ventilation can also encourage ice dams to form causing further damage in areas with snowy winters. Proper roofing ventilation can extend the life of your roof, saving you money over the long run.
Not Planning for Ice Dams
If your home is located in a cold climate, you should plan for the formation of ice dams during the winter months. An ice dam is a layer of ice that forms along the eave line of a roof. Generally when you see icicles hanging from the edge of a roof, there is an ice dam behind it. Ice dams are formed when the temperature of a roof is uneven, generally warmer at the top and colder along the eaves. Snow will melt on the warmer portions of the roof and form sheets of ice at the colder edges called ice dams. These ice dams force water under the shingles, if the roof is not insulated enough. Guard against water damage from this ice formation by making sure to regularly clean out your gutters.
Not Diverting Water from Drains Away from the Base of Your House
If you keep water out of and away from your home, you will significantly increase the life of the building. Foundation erosion, basement flooding, and soil deterioration all occur due to improper water drainage. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, an extended rain spout of at least five feet should be sufficient to drain water from your rooftop and eaves and away from your home. Draining water away from your home will prevent foundation erosion and resulting mold caused by constant dampness due to rain and snow melt.

Your home is more than your castle; it is your single most important financial investment. Simple preventative steps today, such as checking for properly functioning flashing and water diversion, can greatly reduce the chances of water damage and costly headaches down the road.
Great service. Kendra in the office followed up, acting on & answering my questions. Darren in sales took good care of us. Replacing our windows was a big investment- these guys were fair & reliable.
We had a wonderful experience with Advanced Window Products and I could not any happier with our windows. From sale to install everyone we have worked with has been fantastic. Ken our salesman was very knowledgeable, gave sound advice and I never felt like i was getting "sold". Like everything, we knew our order would be delayed due to supply chain etc. Advanced kept us informed and when the windows were ready, they were installed promptly. Our installers, Dave and Nolan did a phenomenal job, were very polite and timely. We were pleasantly surprised to see how neat and tidy they were, we didn't even have to vacuum anything. They took their time and were very efficient. We have an older home and had original single pane windows. I am so pleased with how much quieter and cozy our house feels. Thank you, glad I don't need windows anymore but would use this company again in a heartbeat.
Ken was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I'm so impressed with the entire company. They are prompt and informative. Ken knew what i needed and wanted in window replacements. All my questions were answered though I didn't have many because he was so thorough. I love that this company is local and stands behind their products and services. I recommend them 100%. Thank you again!!
After we got 3 bids from other window Companies we choose Advanced. They did a Great job on our Window project! Rob our sales guy was honest and upfront. Project went smoothly. Thank You !!!!!!!!!!!!,,,plus we received a nice rebate!
Darren is such a pleasure to work with! Very knowledgeable, friendly, and quick to respond. We had quotes with various companies and the customer service with Advanced was by far the best! It’s wonderful to be able to support the local economy as well!
We were impressed with the entire windows replacement experience. Darren was excellent sales rep., who quoted a reasonable price and made the purchase process easy and comfortable. AWP kept us up to date on the entire process ie...how long we'd have to wait, when the windows were available for install etc...Justin, the installer, and his crew were friendly, efficient, and thorough.They cleaned up everything before they left our home.We are vey happy with our windows and will highly recommend AWP to all our neighbors and friends.Thank you so much.The Casey's
Todd was fantastic - he explained everything, especially the length of time it would take to get the instillation.The quality of the windows is great and it has changed our room completely. We loved them so much, we bought another window in our kitchen.When the door was installed, the door latch didn’t lock, but they came right back out and fixed it.
Darren was such a pleasure to work with, he is professional and very knowledgable. He explained and communicated everything well, is efficient and overall a great guy. I would highly recommend Darren and Advanced Windows, it was a great experience working with them.
I worked with Jeremy on my home's window replacement project. Unlike all of the other bids I was getting, I never once felt pressured or hustled during the sales pitch or after. Advanced Windows lets their product, prices, and service do the talking. I've only just initiated the project with them, so I will update this review after the installation. So far I am very impressed with their service and professionalism.
So far the sales experience has been really nice. The salesman wasnt pushy and simply educated us on the material and options. Then gave us a quote and plenty of time to think about it and get other quotes from other companies. I will update after install.
We needed a new puppy door for our new home. I was referred to this company from a friend, and I was not disappointed. Darren was very professional and got the job done quickly. I will definitely be using them in the future.
We moved into a new build a few back and let's just the windows and the air coming in was not what we expected. After talking with Darren he gave us some insight on the difference between new build windows and what they offer. Very happy with the service and quality from and Darren and advanced windows. Highly recommend
Rob is awesome to work with. He is very knowledgeable about the products they carry. I purchased siding from him. And I absolutely love what they did for me. This company is so great to deal with. Very responsive. More than happy to address any concerns and fast to resolve any problem that may arise. I highly recommend Rob and Advanced Window Products.
My experience with Advanced Windows was very positive. The salesman Todd was very knowable and gave us very good information to make a decision of the type of windows that would be best for us. The installer Brad was very thoughtful and explained what he was doing, and answered all our questions. Brad arrived on time and installed our windows much faster then we expected. Brad explained how to care for the windows and how they worked. He did not leave until all concerns were met and all the areas inside and outside our house were clean.
Advanced Windows did all the windows in my home. I have noticed lower utility bills and a more comfortable climate in all rooms of my home. I also had a pet door installed in my French door, which has been a game changer for me, as a dog owner. I love that the products are manufactured locally, and that there is a lifetime warranty.
We used this company to do all of our upstairs windows and had such a good experience that we had their Sales rep Ken come back to help us get our downstairs windows replaced . We have love their product and the installation was professional and clean.
I am not one who usually writes a review but after I got my windows installed today I knew I needed to. From the first time I met with my salesman Darren to the end of my installation with Brock they were very professional, nice, and made sure I knew what was going on every step of the way. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing new windows!
Real review from a real customer. Rob M. Was my sales rep. What a knowledgeable and transparent employee. Ask for him if you want someone you trust in your home. Due to production delays, we waited a while for the windows. But on installation day, and amazing team came out. Justin, Kurt, and Chris were our installation techs. They were polite, professional, and fast. And fast may be an understatement. These guys could install windows with their eyes closed. The price for the windows was reasonable and I will.be working with them in the future and you should too. Save yourself the time and do yourself a favor and just go with advanced. You will not regret it.
I just had 10 new windows installed from Advanced and they look amazing. The installers, Justin and his team were amazing! They were so polite, answered all my questions and were fast and efficient. I was more than impressed with their work ethic. And everything was cleaned up when they left. Thank you!
I called multiple companies and was impressed by the information Rob was able to tell me over the phone. He was very helpful and eager to help without being pushy. He was helpful in suggesting window ideas and didn't try to update. I'm SOOOOO excited for my upcoming install. 😁
John Bozung was a consummate professional. Friendly and helpful from start to finish. I'm only giving a review of Advanced Window Products because of him, but Advanced as a whole was great. John was excellent.
Rob was great to work with. We had a few different companies come out and the price was close but Rob came with examples and demonstrations of their window. Also this was the only company that we spoke with that met the criteria for the Dominion Energy Rebate, so in the long run this should save us money. Looking forward to the installation.
Over the past 20 years we have replaced all of our inferior windows with great quality Advanced Windows. We just finished ordering two sets of their sliding glass doors to replace the French doors that we have had. We appreciate their workmanship and their guarantees. Ken J. has been our salesperson each time which shows the faith he has in their products.
I had new windows installed today and I could not be happier with the finished outcome! I live in an old house built in 1892 and the old windows had the original wood exposed underneath the siding, which was not a pretty site. But after installing the new windows, they also frame up the outside so that nothing is exposed and it gives it a more esthetically pleasing look, which is so much nicer! The windows themselves are so cool including a pop out on the lower pane for easy cleaning and super durable flex screens that pop in and out with ease. They are such an upgrade from what I had! Thank you to Janetha for getting me a speedy quote and as fast as possible lead times and thank you to Justin and Kurt for a seamless install. They quoted me 3 hours and were done with a few minutes to spare and left everything better then they found it. Really respectful, friendly guys! I would recommend this company to anyone! Thanks again!
Darren is great to work with. He arranged our consultation visit quickly, did not try to up-sell us and was very friendly and knowledgeable. He explained everything clearly so there were no surprises. Our windows are not yet installed but I feel confident that we will be happy with them.
Ken is amazing. We just placed our window order and are pending install. After getting many quotes from different companies I felt most comfortable working with Ken. He was enthusiastic, knew his stuff, and put me at ease.Better yet the windows are made in utah, and seem like the best deal for the price.
We had an entire house of windows replaced. 24 windows and not small! Our salesman Rob was very helpful with explaining the differences in windows and helping us select the right kind of windows. The staff at Advanced Window Products kept us informed along the way during the production period. When it came to installation, WOW, what a great crew. Justin, Chris and the rest of the crew where fast but very efficient. We would HIGHLY recommend using Advanced Window Products.
Its All in the Name!Advanced Window Products is way ahead of their competition. During our free consultation with Rob Mower, we learned how great of a company Advanced Windows Products is. They offer superior and unique products that truly keep the extreme temperatures outside while keeping inside the house nice and cozy. In addition to that, all their products come with a lifetime warranty! Therefore, if anything happens to the windows such a gas leakage between the two window panels and/or a window that does not open smoothly is covered. Going with Advance Window Products is by far one of the smartest investments you can make for your home.
We worked with Rob and his team to get the windows in our house redone. They were quick, tidy and most importantly were the best deal for what we got. Next time we do windows we're definitely calling Rob!
Darren was awesome!!! He is super friendly, funny and down to earth. From the moment I spoke with him on the phone, I knew I would most likely be going with Advanced Windows simply based on the interaction I had with him. I’ve been in the customer service industry for years and I’m a HUGE advocate for treating customers like you would a friend and he did just that. Welcoming him into my home felt like I was welcoming in someone I’ve known for years. We were able to talk like friends and I never once felt like I was being pushed into going with Advanced Windows or pressured into buying anything we didn’t want or need. He answered all the questions I had and educated me on everything there was to know about windows. I signed the contract with Advanced Windows that day and cancelled another company’s quote appointment because it just felt right. I’m SO excited to get our new windows installed and so grateful that Darren was the guy to help me. He definitely secured me as a lifetime customer.
I needed an estimate to compare to a competitor's bid very quickly. Darren worked with me in the timeframe needed to get me a quote that was a much better value than the competition and he did not know who the competition was or the cost. When he did come to the house, he made great suggestions, corrected his estimate, and was very informative without being pushy. We can't wait for the windows to be installed.
Jeremy was amazing to work with, came in, had samples and gave me a quote for basement windows. He was professional and knowledgeable when it came to windows. I had called a couple other window companies, they weren't very professional and did the hard sell. I had one that asked me if I was able to make the final decision on the purchase, what is it 1940? It wasn't the price nor the quality of the windows that may me (all by myself) decide on Advance it was Jeremy.
Replaced all the windows in our home. Darren answered all our questions and has been very helpful. Two of the new windows were cracked sometime before installation. We are waiting for those to be repaired but the staff has been reassuring that things are ordered and will be repaired in a timely manner. Installation was quick and installers were very friendly.
Could not be more happy with my windows. Todd my salesman, and Garrett my installer were both amazing in helping me. The old home owners had only 2 of the front windows already replaced, and they took great care to match them. You can’t even tell a difference. The wait was a few weeks shorter than expected and the install looks flawless. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking. Thanks everyone.
We are very happy with our new windows. Todd was great to work with. He gave a great estimate and timeline for delivery. The installation was very quick and professional. The windows are very easy to open and close and seal very well to keep out the cold and noise from outside. Would highly recommend Todd and Advanced Windows.
Darrin gave me an estimate. He was on time and very easy to work with. The estimate he gave was right in line with what I was expecting to pay. After his presentation I decided to cancel my estimates with other companies and sign with Advanced Windows. My experience was awesome
Ken was knowledgeable, quick and polite. He was able to quickly assess what was needed and provide the cost projection without delay or pressure. This is the second time I’ve had him out to continue replacing the rest of my windows.
We replaced 13 windows and added wraps to a total of 16 so we never have to paint or repair again. We are extremely happy with the process and the windows and our install guy, Justin, was fantastic and made sure all was as expected. Would absolutely hire them again but the windows have a lifetime warranty so I guess I’ll never get to buy from them again unless I move... :)
After getting a crazy high quote from another company, we called Advanced Window. I felt the quote was very fair for what we needed done. I'm not sure if the company let's you choose your installers, but we had Trent and Brett as installers and these guys were awesome. I'd ask for them specifically. Thanks for the hard work. Thank you Advanced Window. You will be recommended to anyone I know looking for windows.
Our windows took longer to arrive due to warehouse shut downs after the wildfires last year, however the office was very prompt in updating us on the status of things and making sure we were informed at all times. Brett and Trent were our installers and they were so awesome! They arrived on time and and did fantastic work. They were polite and friendly.We had some unforseen complications with the sliding door installation and they handled everything very professionally. I highly recommend this company.
We have been shopping around for windows for some time, so we had been through all the sales pitches and had become quite skeptical and calloused to the window industry. A friend of ours had their windows done last year through Advanced Window Products and was very happy with the result, so we decided to give them a call. Because we mentioned who referred us, they sent us the same representative who helped our friends. Honestly, Jeremy was such a breath of fresh air! He was super knowledgeable and helped talk us through our options...even steering us away from more expensive options we thought we wanted, since he knew they were not going to be the best for our situation. He even walked us through how to fill out our rebate forms for after our windows are installed! We are so incredibly grateful for Jeremy and would recommend him to anyone! We haven’t had the windows installed yet, so we will update when that happens, but if the rest of the team is like Jeremy, we know we will be well taken care of!
Just put a deposit down to replace all of the windows and the patio door in our sunroom. Jeremy was great to work with. He came by the house within a few days of my call and we finalized the contract quickly. He was prompt, professional, and masked up. Haven’t had anything installed yet, but so far the process has been great!
VERY PLEASED! Rob was very good to us! He arrived on time and knew the product well. He was there for any questions throughout our window buying process! Thanks Advance Windows and Rob for taking care of us!
a stellar local company with a great product, lifetime warranty, incredible staff members. Janetha was such a pleasure to work with. Very understanding with our needs and even during Covid was timely and professional.
We have had our windows for 10 1/2 years and have never had a problem with them. They keep out drafts and open and close easily. We are using them for installing egress windows now and they still have the same professional business as they did 10 years ago. I highly recommend them.
Darren is very professional and knowledgeable. He took his time to educate us about all of our window options and was never pushy. We appreciated his insight, advice and thoroughness. We talked to several window companies but Darren and Advanced struck just the right balance.
Jeremy was amazing! He communicate with me to make sure that I understood the cost of these windows and these products. He put me at ease with the price of all of these windows in our home. I appreciated his honestly and services very much.
Darren Lewis was our rep. He called me on his way, he was on time, he was courteous and knowledgeable and answered all my questions, ashe was also familiar with his competitors. Same day bid. I heard good things from a few sources, and so far they have lived up to the hype. I appreciate Darren's honesty and straightforward approach, and everything was scheduled within minutes, so I didn't have to follow up with anything. Everyone at Advanced that he called to schedule or to answer questions was responsive and helpful as well.
Darren was fantastic to work with. Respectful and courteous. I appreciated his clean shoes and that he wore a mask in our home. He was very upfront about costs and benefits of the new windows. He really helped work with us regarding financing. I never thought I would be excited for something as “boring” as windows, but I can’t wait for them to be installed!
We have had our windows now going on 5 years. Todd Peters was exceptional in his knowledge and help in replacing all the windows in our house. The installation process was seamless and we literally did nothing. They were quick and thorough and cleaned up great, we had no idea they were even there after installation. Our windows have been great quality and they offered a 0% interest on the life of our loan. We love our doggy door and have had zero issues. Thanks Todd and thanks AWP!
We had a great experience with them. Todd was great to work with and was always available when we had questions or needed something. The installation crew was very professional, quick, and cleaned up after themselves. The windows changed the whole look of our house. They look great!
I’d like to reply to your comment Katie Dunlap about Advanced Windows and your sales person Darren. I had the opposite experience with this company and Darren.Darren came out to my house and was amazing to work with, he was nice and very knowledgeable about his product. We signed with him after comparing many other companies windows and estimates. While we signed he explained there was a 3 day cancellation policy that allowed me to change my mind. 6 days later Covid hit our lives and I was let go from my job, I called Darren and even after my cancellation time was past he let me out of my contract and was so professional and understanding about the situation that once I got another job a month later I called him and told him I was ready again for my order. I have my new windows in now and was very happy with my install and the product I was given. This company was great to work with and Darren was an amazing salesman.To be honest I question your complaint because if you only thought the paper you signed was only an estimate then how do you explain the down payment you have to pay once you sign with them? Whether it’s was a cash deal or you financed your job, you have to give them the go ahead with your down payment or information to finance. Sounds like you are one of those keyboard warriors who like to just complain.Either way I would refer Darren and Advanced Windows to any of my friends or family!Mr. Green
I have been looking for some time now for a window replacement company. Our windows are original to the house and it's just that time. Jeremy came out to take a look and provide us with the quote. He was amazing! He was not pushy at all, didn't give me a big sales pitch, or any other BS to get our business. He was honest and sincere about what we does. He told us up front that due to the pandemic, it would take a little longer than normal. I really appreciated that he was realistic with us and didn't sugar coat anything. He explained the differences between the types of windows and what everything meant. He went over their pricing specials only after we said we wanted to go ahead because he didn't want us to feel that he was trying to push us or hook us in with it. Awesome! We are very impressed with just the quoting process we had with Jeremy. I don't think I have ever had one that was that easy and comfortable lol. We are excited for the rest of the process and for the new beautiful windows!! Thanks guys
Darren was wonderful, he taught us and educated us about good windows for the state of Utah and about his company advanced window products. He didn’t give her high sales pitch, he was sincere and forthright, and we would recommend him highly to any of our friends and family. Thank you!
I had talked with 3 other window companies before deciding on Advanced Windows. Advanced had exactly what I was looking for and a price I could afford. I couldn't be happier.My salesman, Rob has been very helpful and my installer Chris did a beautiful job installing.Thanks to all the Advanced Window Team!
Justin and Clayton helped replace two windows that had cracked. They were very timely and professional. After they were done, they made sure to clean up and left it cleaner than it was before. Very great service!
I replaced some of my windows with Advanced Windows a few years ago and decided it was time to replace the rest of the windows on my home so I contacted my sales person Ken. He was quick to respond and came out and gave me a quote to finish my home's windows. He is very professional and took good care of my needs to order my window's. I would recommend Advanced Windows if you're looking at replacing your windows.
Great customer service. Justin and Clayton did a fabulous job of installing our windows. They worked so hard, and we are so pleased. Thanks guys. We are so excited to have new windows. We would highly recommend Advanced Windows. They've been great!
My wife and I were looking to do some much needed updates to our home and were recommended by a friend to look into Advanced Windows. Once we called to set up an appointment our sales associate came to the house for measurements and to explain the process. Adding the demo of the window material was a nice touch to get a hands on glimpse as to what we were buying.***Our sales associate was on time, professional, and very courteous.That was in Oct 2020. Because of the pandemic causing supply issues we didn't get our windows installed until today, which is totally understandable.The real amazing factor was the installation crew. Jason and Kurt were on time at 0800 ready to go. Both Jason and Kurt were extremely courteous and patient, answering any questions that my wife or I had with the windows and the installation process. Before they began working they also had great foresight to ask that the cars in the driveway be moved so they wouldn't get damaged. They also took the time to go over window maintenance and talked to us before a few windows were installed if there were some hinderances in the way.***Jason and Kurt were friendly, on time, professional, patient, and very courteous.Just the experience with the installation crew alone makes me highly recommend Advanced Windows for all your home or business needs.
My wife had decided she wanted new windows and set up an appointment with a window company. We sat through the presentation and she was impressed enough she wanted to purchase then. After discussing we decided to do some research. I sat through 2 other presentations (over 2 hours each) and then I was contacted by Advanced Windows who said they could send someone out the next day. Rob Mower arrived the next day, discussed the construction of window, glass, and all the things the others had in about 30 min. He gave me a price and told me to complete my research and contact him if it is something we wanted to move forward with. The next day I met with one other company and the decision was easy. The presentation was straight forward, easy to understand, not an over sale or "Up Sale" involved and when comparing apple to apples on windows the price was considerably better. I thank Rob for making the choice easy. Hopefully the install is as seamless.
Advanced Window Products is an awesome company. They replaced our front window with little to no mess and it looks great. The installers were courteous and efficient with their work. I'd use them again in a heartbeat!
Todd was great to work with, and is extremely knowledgeable about the products! We have absolutely loved the change in view the new sliding door brought to our house, not to mention the better functionality and comfort! We can’t even believe how much more efficient the new glass is. It’s truly amazing that the outside temperature doesn’t bleed through anymore! Advanced’s team was extremely responsive, and a pleasure to work with!
We were new to the window replacement world, and after having several bids and different quotes my husband reached out to Advanced Window Products. Rob Mower called my husband right back on a Saturday and provided him with instant information. We quickly came home and looked at their website which was very well put together with some great information. Rob came to our home the following Monday and was on time and quick with the entire presentation and was just an all around great guy. We quickly signed up and put a 50% deposit down and cannot wait for the 12 weeks we were quoted for all new 17 windows. Hopefully that installation process will go just as great as what Rob has done and told us up to this point.
