Siding and Your Home: What You Need to Know

When it was time to re-side our home, I quickly found myself overwhelmed by the different siding options. I could side my home in cedar shingles, wood planks, fiber cement planks, vinyl siding or metal siding, just to name a few of the options out there. I spent a lot of time wading through websites trying to figure out the benefits of each material and which would be right for me. While there was a lot of information about the materials, most of it didn't apply to me. It was about installing the siding or buying or selling the siding. I created this so if you are looking for siding, you have a one-stop resource that lays out the different types of siding and their benefits. This should help you avoid having to wade through information that does not apply to you to find what you need.



How To Make Your Backyard Clean Up Easier

Whether you're building something new outside or starting your spring cleaning, restoring the glory of your backyard is a great way to maximize the potential of the space. Backyard clean ups aren't always fun, but with a few tips, you can make the job significantly less labor-intensive. So if you're ready to get things started outside, here's a few things to make the clean up easier.

Call For Scrap Metal Pick Up

Scrap metal can be anything from old cars to iron fences, and if you have it sitting around your backyard, the best thing to do is call a removal service. Scrap metal recycling is increasingly common, as industrial and manufacturing demands production metal that isn't virgin. Because the cost is higher for mining and processing raw metals, scrap metals provide a valuable source for meeting industrial service needs.

Your scrap metal can sometimes be turned into cash, too. So if you have old metal rotting away in your backyard, some services will pay per pound of specific commodities. Certain services may actually charge you to remove a load, based on freight and demand needs, so you need to ask the specifics before you schedule the service. Either way, a scrap metal pick up service (like Scrap Metal Processors Inc) would love to come and help you with your clean up effort.

Rent A Dumpster

Once you recycle or trade in your old metal for cash, you need to find a way to get rid of the other waste from your clean up. Dumpsters may be the solution you're looking for, if you're removing building materials, trash, or yard waste. Dumpsters make waste removal a cinch, as waste management will drop it off at your desired location, you can fill it to the brim, and they'll haul it away when you're ready. If you've got a ton of construction debris or yard waste, it can save you several trips to the dump using your own vehicle.

Rent Construction Equipment

Heavy-duty construction equipment can help you make the best use of your time, and manpower if it's limited. Rental equipment, like a bobcat, offers you a a multitude of attachments, so you can finish all of your outdoor clean up projects at once. Though rental equipment demands a little extra cash than having friends help out, it can load and unload yard waste and demolition debris faster than you can get everyone to say "okay."
