One of the first things people want to replace when considering energy upgrades for thier home are doors and windows also one of the most common maintenance items because they are holes in you shell. I have been working in Ketchikan for 6 years and have come to understand the importance of a proper installation.
I have replaced a few dozen roofs in my 6 years here metal, asphalt, lexan, or rolled roofing no matter what you want we can do it. Also we understand that not everyone is rich with money to burn and roofing fails eventually so no matter your budget if you have a leak and need it to stop we can help even if its attaching a tarp to make it through the season till your budget permits we are here for you the customer.
There are a few options When choosing the siding for your home and it usually boils down to style. Many to choose from Concrete(hardi) plank, beveled cedar, cedar shake, concrete shake style, tongue and groove, T1-11, metal varieties, and vinyl. No matter the style you choose count on Ketchikan Home Improvement to put Quality and Durability into your vocabulary about your house.
If there is one thing water does to wood its start decomposition, and when you can not see the damage because it is tucked behind your siding, under doors and windows, it is usually too late to just correct the issue. The fix starts with demo of the rotten wood then clean up and work your way back to the minor flashing the last guy figured caulking could fix. We pride ourselves in being students of building science and love to learn. I will not claim to know it all but i can learn about it. Rot is one of the more interesting aspects of my craft. that's because the cause is not always readily available and requires investigation and theory to solve on occasion.
The first thing most people think of when saving energy is new windows or drafty doors but the biggest improvements are made where you don't usually go attics crawl spaces and the biggest improvement is just stopping the warm air from getting out. If you would like a free consultation on the energy performance of your home give me a call. I've worked for Ketchikans premiere weatherization contractor for 6 years it is the family business I have attended over 120 hours of specialized courses directed at making your home more efficient.

I started KHI because i knew that if all i do is Complete every job 100% and give every customer exactly what they wanted. I Would be a success as long as i hired an accountant. I have lived here 6 years and grown to love the this little town and the wet green climate. My mission is to provide 1 on 1 service for my clients i dedicate my time to one project at a time and bring my passion for creation. If there is one thing most contractors in Ketchikan lack it a passion for there profession. I think my self an artist mostly because a quote i once read.Some would even say i am talented. I pay attention to the little things and really care about my work and have a passion for it.. I will post pictures to my website as they become available.. "The man who works with his hands is a laborer, the man who works with hand and his mind is a craftsman, and the man who works with his hands his mind and his heart is an artist.
Well lets face it you cant make everyone happy but what we can do is respond to all client inquiry with honesty and respect and guarantee that my work will last longer than most and if my product fails where others wouldn't because of an error or oversight made by me or my employees I will fix it at my cost guaranteed. There is fine print to every guarantee ask me for a copy. But the fact of the matter is if I am at fault I will make it right.
