3 Easy Steps to Remodel Your Fireplace

Fireplace gas insert
before and after fireplaces

Go from old to new with an easy to install gas fireplace insert.

Do you have an ugly, dated, wood-burning fireplace you’d like to bring back to life? Brass doors from the 80s. Dirty soot and ashes. Messy firewood.  Uninviting. Unused.  If so, it’s time to remodel your fireplace.

Heat & Glo Fireplace Inserts

The simplest and most cost effective way to transform your old brick or manufactured fireplace into an attractive and comfortable space is with a Heat & Glo gas fireplace insert.

Henry Poor Lumber offers Heat & Glo gas fireplace inserts that turn an used wood-burning fireplace into an energy efficient and attractive centerpiece of your room.

A “gas insert” fits inside your wood-burning fireplace opening. It is fed by a copper gas line that brings instant warmth into your home. All with no work and just the touch of a button.

Easy As One, Two, Three

A fireplace makeover is an amazingly easy process that converts your wood-burning fireplace into a beautiful, warm and easy-to-use gas fireplace insert with these three easy steps.

  1. Bring in a photo of your fireplace to Henry Poor Lumber to find out what “gas insert” will work best for you.  Go to the Heat & Glo website to view your options.
  2. Have your gas fireplace insert installed safely by a local contractor.
  3. Sit back and enjoy having a beautiful and efficient fireplace.

This is also the time to update the overall look of your fireplace by installing new stone or brick facing, or painting the older brick to give it a contemporary, refreshed look.

GAF Roofing Materials and Shingles

The Signs Your Roof Needs Replacing

Home with GAF Shingles

Roofs, like anything else associated with your home, do not last forever.  Depending on the type of weather your roof has been exposed to over the years, a roof may last 15 – 20 years.
.
It’s a good idea to inspect your roof in the early Fall, particularly if you live in areas of the country that experience extreme weather … like Indiana.

.
Signs Your Roof Needs Replacing

home with old roofHere are some early signs that your roof may be due to have new shingles installed.

  • A leak in the attic.
    After a strong storm or wind-driven rain, take a look in the attic for signs of leaking. It could indicate damaged shingles, inadequate underlayment or deteriorated flashing.
  • Blistering or peeling interior or exterior paint.
    Moisture trapped in the house due to poor ventilation can cause exterior paint to peel and blister.
  • Stains on interior ceilings and walls – mold or mildew growth.
    Stains, or worse, mold can be caused by leaks from outside the house or moisture trapped inside.
  • Exterior decay in sheathing and/or siding.
    Excess moisture can also contribute to decay.
  • Missing, cracked, or curled shingles.
    Dry, cracked, or easily broken shingles have reached the end of their useful life, and it’s time to invest in a new roof.
  • Dark, “dirty-looking” areas on your roof.
    Vegetation, fungus, mold, or algae growth can cause dark stains on your shingles. That doesn’t necessarily mean you need a new roof, but if you do choose to replace your shingles look for ones that offer stain protection.
  • Excessive energy costs.
    Inadequate ventilation can possibly drive up your household cooling costs by trapping hot air in the attic. Attic moisture can also drip into your insulation, reducing its effectiveness.
