Solar panels will still work even when the light is reflected or partially blocked by clouds. Rain actually helps to keep your panels operating efficiently by washing away any dust or dirt.

It can be, yes. But a roofing layover—or layering—is a temporary solution and may end up causing damage to your roof. In our experience, layering can invite problems like moss that will damage both the old and new shingles. In the end, this could cost you more than if you were to install a quality new roof.
Our roofing experts will carefully evaluate your roof in terms of area, layout, slope, exposure and architecture to determine the best roofing material for your project. We’ll present you with the options during our in-person meeting.

Siding doesn’t require much maintenance. An occasional cleaning every 6 to 12 months will help maintain its quality appearance. We don’t recommend cleaning your siding with a high pressure washing because it can cause damage.
Every project is different. Emmaty Exteriors experts will provide a quote that includes everything that they determine should be replaced, including, if necessary, trim, soffit work, eaves, etc. Please notify us of anything you think may need replacement so they can best advise you.
Yes. By the time you start to see problems like cracking, dry rot, or mold, it may be too late. Call Emmaty at 508-369-0822 so we can examine the condition of your siding and advise you on your options.
Emmaty Exteriors can help. It’s best to have an Emmaty Exteriors team member look at the condition of your siding to determine if it needs to be replaced. Some common signs that you may need to replace your siding are cracking, color fading, rotting or any other visible damage.
Hidden damage. Problems that come with old siding, like rot and mold, are likely getting worse under the surface—even though your siding may look nice on the outside. Additionally, with our fade-resistant siding in a number of colors and styles, you won’t have to ever worry about painting your siding again.

One of our Emmaty Exteriors can evaluate for you. Our experts can inspect your windows to determine if they need replacement and provide you with a quote. You may need to replace your windows if they’re damaged, warped or broken, you want to reduce your energy bill, your home needs a makeover, or your home was affected by a serious storm.
Yes, quality. Replacement windows vary significantly in construction and quality. We’ve partnered with the best in the industry, so you can trust the quality of your windows to provide year-round beauty, comfort and energy efficiency.
Premium products like Harvey Windows or Andersen Windows provide benefits like energy efficiency and cost savings, improved comfort, reduced condensation, increased light and improved view, reduced fading.
Savings and efficiency. Energy-saving windows have argon gas between the panes to increase energy efficiency. With age, the seals fail and the gas escapes. A longer-term, more energy-efficient solution is to replace the window itself, saving you money over time.
Sadly, not much. As window seals fail over time, dirt, dust and other particles get trapped between the panes. Our experts can inspect your windows for free to determine whether or not your windows require replacement.
Emmaty Exteriors offers Harvey and Andersen windows. We have a variety of window styles to choose from—whether single or double hung, swing or clean—and custom fit our extensive selection of windows to your home.
