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.
We had our windows replaced by Advanced Window Products. I was very impressed with the professional way that they were able to remove the old windows. We have exterior siding and they didn't even touch the siding. Our installers were Brad, and Sam. They were very professional and spent the time to show us how to operate our new windows. I am extremely happy with the results and have enjoyed working with everyone at the company. Thanks for doing such a great job on our house.
Rob was a fantastic salesman. Not your typical give your pitch and push your product. He actually listened to what I wanted and fit his products (and pricing) to my requests. No up sale or "extras" pitch.Our windows were manufactured and installed ahead of schedule. The office crew communicated often; we were aware of the progress of our project at all times. Noel and his nephew (our installers) were remarkable. They left the inside and outside cleaner than when they arrived.I would not hesitate to use Advanced Windows in the future.
Advanced window products as a company were very professional and easy to work with from their Salesman Ken to the installation with Brad and Justin. They did an amazing job and cleaned up after. I was very impressed with every single person I dealt with at Advanced and would highly recommend them!!! I absolutely love my new windows and my house stays very well Insulated, not like the draft from my old windows!!! I AM VERY SATISFIED!!!
Advanced Window products did a superb job on replacing the single pane windows in the home. Huge difference for the home in looks and eliminating the drafts. They are super to work with and professional from the sales to install to follow-up. Highly recommend their products and service.
Darren was my salesman and was very knowledgeable and walked me through all options and I was very surprised with the pricing I was quoted, much lower than all the companies I received quoteS from. I highly recommend Darren and Advanced Windows.
I am so happy with the professional product, installation, and sales of my windows. Brad and Sam were awesome installers. My sales guy was awesome also. I would recommend this company to everyone I know.
Ashley and Sierra in the office are amazing, down to earth people! If you need any kind of window ‘needs’, give them a call and they will help you out more than you could ask for! Oh and don’t forget about Allorah!! They are all so well educated in their line of work and will help get you set up with the right products to get the job done above and beyond expectations!
Extremely satisfied from start to finish. From their sales representative Ken to their install crew Brock and Clayton, my experience couldn’t have been better. Thank you, Advanced Window Products, for being professional and fulfilling your promise: “You’ll LOVE what you see!”
We needed the windows replaced in our home and from the initial phone call to installation Advanced Windows has been fantastic. We met with Jeremy and went over all of our options and received our quote. We decided to move forward with the project and Advanced Windows. Kendra was very communicative and helpful with updates to our install date. She has been very helpful throughout the entire process. Don and Patrick came out and installed the windows and kept our house and carpet clean. They did a great job. Everyone was very punctual and communicated very well.Thank you Advanced Window team!
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!!!!
I want to say thank you to Rob and Advanced Windows!! My wife and I were dreading dealing with our house renovation and adding new windows, but Rob was great to work with. He wasn't pushy and allowed us to make the best decision for us and our situation. The install was quick and painless. Thank you Advanced!!!!!!!
Ken our sell guy was awesome to work with he knows his product his not pushy his on top of any questions concerns ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️We will use him again on other projects for sure this one was our own home and we loved the productPrice ✔️Quality ✔️Product ✔️Timely ✔️Thank you Ken
We chose Advanced Windows for quality, price and warranty. However, we were pleasantly surprised with the customer service. Not only was our salesman, Ken, knowledgeable and friendly, the installation team was clean, careful and courteous. When we had a small issue arise about our sliding glass door lock and back ordered screen door, Advanced sent someone out to resolve it quickly. So, even after the work had been done you don't feel like they leave you hanging and are there to make sure the job is satisfactory. I will and have recommended Advanced to family and friends.
After getting quotes from several companies, and reading lots of mixed reviews, we decided on Advanced Windows. I was pleasantly surprised. The sales person was good and the installers were great. Very polite, clean, and accomodating. I work from home and they did the office based off of MY schedule. There was no damage to my house or window sills - I saw that in a few reviews. The installer noticed the sliding glass door handle was damaged, the screen for it was on backorder, and one of our windows was jnstalled backward. They came back only two weeks later and fixed all 3 things at the same time which I loved. The windows look great and I definitely recommend Advanced Windows!
I recently had several windows in my home replaced by Advanced Window Products. I have had great success using them in the past and this experience proved, once again, that they are a great company.Excellent service and communication through the entire process. The first phone call, the measuring, the in-the-works correspondence, and the final installation. The entire experience was very professional with quality results.Marshall did a great job on the installation setting my concerns at ease right from the start.My expectations were exceeded and I would not hesitate to recommend them highly to anyone.Great job Advanced!I could not be more pleased with my new windows and the experience with your fine company!
All I can say is WOW!!! What an amazing team showed up at my house to install my windows. I have been stressed since ordering them and bright and early they showed up to do the job. Brad and his crew work well with each other and they were in and out, left no mess, and it is just delightful to have the new windows. Thanks so much also to Darren for coming out, giving me a bid, and working so well with our crazy schedule!!! Job well done!!!
Loved our experience with advanced window products! They made install day a breeze! They replaced 11 windows and were in and out in 2 hours! No mess and no damage to our new paint. The windows look amazing and we are very happy with them. Will recommend to my friends and family!
We had Advanced Window's replaced our entry window. Ken our sale's was fantastic in arranging our replacement. Don and Justin our installers was very professional and service oriented.They did a fantastic job.
Fantastic service! Very knowledgeable and professional. No pressure sales. I contacted three companies for my replacement window bid for 19 windows. Jeremy was above and beyond better than the other companies, in his knowledge, low pressure sales and just stellar business manner. Everyone that I have had communication with at advanced windows via email, text, phone call or in person, has been exceptional. I also love that you’re local and give back to make a wish foundation. Checks all the boxes. Thank you!
Darren was wonderful to work with, very knowledgeable, friendly and an overall great person and salesman. The installers were quick, precise, knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend this company! Awesome experience from start to finish!
I have never been more satisfied with such a large purchase than I am with buying windows from Advanced Window Products. Working with Ken made everything so smooth and easy. He came out to the house for our estimate showed us all our options and explained everything clearly so we had all the information we needed before moving forward. Ken was with us every step of the process which made us feel comfortable and secure with our purchase. Everyone at AWP was so pleasant to work with it was a no brainer where we were buying windows from. On installation day David and his crew were very professional and courteous. They removed old windows and installed new windows in one day and left everything clean, like they weren't even there. If we had to do it all over we would be glad to use AWP again and again. We felt like they genuinely cared about us as customers. Thanks to everyone at AWP we are so satisfied with everything. A+ Service, communication, quality. couldn't ask for a better experience.
Ken was great and easy to work with. They replaced one window a year or two again and we liked them enough that we are getting more windows through them. The are a lot faster then other companies that we have looked into who were 8+ months out Advanced was only 12 week out for install and they have great quality windows.
Ken was great to work with. He listened to what I needed to be done and didn't try to oversell. We walked through what windows would be replaced, their cost, and when to expect them to be installed. He was responsive to any further questions I had after our consultation.The windows are high quality and did what we needed them to do, stop drafts and reduce heat gain from the sun. We've noticed a considerable difference in comfort in the rooms with the new windows.
I decided to splurge for the sliding door with the embedded doggie door. I love my new door. Installation went very well, and the cleanup was done quickly. I had a lovely new operational door in a very timely manner.
All of the employees were great to work with, Jeremy in sales, Kendra in the office, Brad and Justin and the rest of the install crew were amazing to watch, and the nicest guys in the state. Janet and Terry
It took a long time to get my windows after ordering but was worth the wait. I've heard stories that people building their homes are waiting a lot longer. I had a massive amount of windows replaced and the installer (Brad) and my salesman (Rob) was awesome. Rob is even helping me find a windshield for my UTV as I write this. I have no issues as of now with all 23 windows they replaced on a 2 day install. They also did it in 100 degree temps with out losing coolness in the house. The windows are extremely noticeable at their effectiveness over the "rotten windows" I've dealt with for 20 years since house was new. I keep house at same AC settings but feels much cooler than I would have ever expected. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
I had all 24 windows on my house replaced. Darren was amazing right from the start. He was very responsive to any questions I had & I was kept updated between order & install. Once the windows arrived, the installers were friendly & very respectful of my house. I'm highly satisfied with their work & would highly recommend Darren Lewis if you need any window products.
We used Advanced Window Products to replace all the windows on our home and it turned out wonderful. The team, from sales to installation, were easy to work with and they did a great job. They communicated any delays in production and were easy to work around our schedule. Professional job.
These guys are awesome. Great prices and my new sliding door looks amazing!!! Everyone who came out was very friendly and professional. My home isn’t typical construction so they had to do some custom work to make it look good, and I’m so happy with the work they did. The installer was actually friends with the people who owned my home before me, small lake city. I highly recommend using them for windows and doors.
I recently worked with AWP for new windows. I had no idea how much heat was coming through before. I have southwest facing windows and my AC could barely keep up with all the heat that would enter before. With the new windows, my AC runs much less and actually keep the house cool :) All of the humans I worked with were very professional and efficient at their jobs. I would definitely recommend these guys to all of my friends and family
Brad and his coworker arrive on time, worked hard and smoothly removed the old windows and skillfully installed the new windows. At completion Brad asked us to check to be sure we were satisfied. He then showed us how to open and close the windows, the locks, how to take out the windows to clean, how to put them back in the frame, how to remove snd put back the screens. He asked if we had any questions or concerns. We were pleased and surprised how smoothly and quickly the job was done. They clean everything up. The windows look great. The house stays cooler. Purchasing Advanced Windows was the right decision.
Darren Lewis was my salesman at Advanced Windows. I had been needing new windows for years and was overwhelmed on where to start and what to do. He walked me through every detail and made the process so easy. I feel like he went above and beyond what his job entails. He followed up with me throughout the whole process to make sure I heard from the office or installer based on the timeline given. He kept me in the loop on what to expect from the time he came and measured my windows up until they were installed. He even called after to ask how they looked and to make sure I was happy with everything. I would highly recommend Darren and will keep his number for any future needs.Thank you Darren!!!Sincerely,Michelle Blair
Darren was incredible! I felt taken care of and like I got an awesome deal! He took the time to explain the product, my options and to answer my questions. I would highly recommend Advanced Window Products if you're looking to replace the windows & screens in your home!
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!!
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.
