A Bastion Against Cold Temperatures

Wintery wonderland

The Importance of Insulation for Frigid Temperatures

Ah, winter. Each year us Wisconsinites have to endure the bitterly cold temperatures that Mother Nature throws at us, and deal with the inclement weather that comes along for the ride. The winter temperatures and winter weather bring about a certain childish joy in some of us, while others have less positive associations. Fortunately for all of us, modern infrastructure is constructed from the best materials available and effectively keeps the brisk air out and the warm air in. More than ever, insulation products are keeping energy bills down and homeowners’ spirits up. There is something to be said about waking up in a warm bed as the snowfall slowly piles up outside.

A Cold Winter Approaches

Weather experts have been unable to put their finger on the weather pattern for this upcoming winter, but most agree that El Niño will rear its ugly head and make November through February less than pleasurable for many residents across the Midwest. The good news is that they have great options available to them – options that will keep their homes warm and their families comfortable. Here at United Building Supply Inc., we are well-stocked with some of the best insulation products money can buy. Builders and contractors alike rely on us to give their customers the absolute best and ensure their repeat business.

ThermaTru: A Durable Alternative to Wood or Steel

what a pretty door

The Difference of Fiberglass Doors

The entryway to a home is not something that homeowners give an undue amount of thought or consideration towards. Frequently it is an overlooked aspect, and the components that make up said door are as equally ignored. However, the materials that make up your door matter, and even after 25 years, one material in particular continue to be the most advanced. Fiberglass can satisfy today’s and tomorrow’s homeowners by offering the appearance of wood doors and coupling it with the strength of steel doors – without the drawbacks of either! Thermatru makes some of the best doors that feature a winning combination of security, energy efficiency, performance, and aesthetics. Here at United Building Supply Inc., we are happy to carry Thermatru, the genuine pioneer of the fiberglass door category, a truly trailblazing company.

Wood, Steel, or Fiberglass?

Wood doors are the original, offering a beautiful, natural look and warm feel and touch that exudes all the positive feelings homeowners associate with a warm home. Steel provides other advantages such as fewer maintenance issues, cheaper cost, security, and superb insulation value. Both of these options are surpassed by their newer, younger counterpart: fiberglass. Fiberglass includes the strengths of both wood and steel doors – and then some. Unlike wood, fiberglass won’t absorb moisture, fade, or require regular maintenance. Similarly, it distances itself from steel, which is easily dented, commonly undergoes paint chipping, and experiences scratches that can lead to rust. For us, the choice has never been clearer. Fiberglass truly is the material of the future, and with insulation value five times that of wood, it doesn’t appear to be bowing out anytime soon.

Top Notch Remodeling Materials

Whether you are attempting to tackle a massive project with multiple exterior renovations or you have just a few small tweaks to make to a home, the experts at United Building Supply Inc. are here to help. We have all the exterior remodeling products you could possibly need!

The Beauty of Cedar Without the Upkeep

The Foundry Siding: Born From Nature, Designed For Life

Whether inside a home or out, cedar is a treasured building element in many homes today. It has fantastic curb appeal that is as immersive as it is stunning. The biggest drawback with genuine home features made from cedar is the meticulous, ritual upkeep they require. One company has found a handy solution to that problem, engineering cedar-like shingles that are not only attractive but come maintenance-free too! Unlike its wood counterpart, the Foundry’s shingles never rot, warp, buckle or crack. You can offer customers a choice among a wide selection – from shingles with a subtle grain detail to staggered shakes that carry a bold rustic dimension.

The Foundry Vinyl Cedar Siding

The vinyl siding offered by The Foundry presents an exact portrait of cedar shake and shingle style. The difference between the siding and real cedar is the relative toughness – this vinyl siding is tougher than wood and it is fire-resistant! In addition, this particular brand of siding is engineered for sustainability. Consider for a moment all of the wonderful benefits of vinyl siding: low-maintenance, increased product life, wind and water resistance, color retention, and impervious to insect damage…the evidence supporting the value in purchasing this siding is nearly overwhelming.

A Deck For All Seasons

fall deck

The Pleasures of an Outdoor Deck in Your Backyard

The deck – one of the flagship elements of any exterior renovation project. Whether you are building a front porch or a backyard patio – the deck is considered something of a luxury. Homeowners can enjoy the outdoors in a leisurely way. On those cool autumn mornings there is nothing quite like enjoying your hot cup of morning coffee as you survey the morning, the dew clinging to the blades of grass, the crisp air on your skin. In many parts of the country a deck is associated with summer: an outdoor bbq, a nightcap on the patio on a warm summer evening. Here in Wisconsin, however, your deck can be used for so much more when the weather is agreeable.

The Technology of Tomorrow, Today: Genovations Decking

The fine folks at Genovations Deck Flooring and Railing have developed a PVC-based decking that is head and shoulders above the competition. From the inside out, their decking is truly special. Built with 100% PVC, there are no foam, fillers or fibers in their decking material – nothing mold can grow on. The surface is just as phenomenal: anti-slip, anti-skid, it does not get slippery when it gets wet. In addition, reflectance have been built into the surface, effectively radiating the heat of the sun. On a bright, hot, sunny day, color for color, their surface temperature is going to be 20-30º cooler than a five quarter deck board. The result? A barefoot friendly surface that is cool to the touch that is low-maintenance and can be installed directly over concrete. The design and engineering of these marvelous deck is so exquisite that the employees at Genovations classify it as “flooring for your deck.”

Decking and So Much More

Here at United Building Supply Inc., the decking options provided by Genovations is but one of the many exterior remodeling products we have available. From windows and doors to insulation and siding, we provide contractors and builders with the absolute best products available.

Reduce Your Energy Bill this Winter Season

Reap the Benefits of Proper Home Insulation

As we begin to enter the cooler months of the year, it becomes painfully apparent just how cold we can get inside our homes. Inefficient windows and aging components of our home can cause the indoors to be less than bearable. Here in Wisconsin the average high in November dips to a chilly 38º Fahrenheit, with a low of just 23ºF. December brings even icier temperatures, with an average high of 24ºF and an average low of 7ºF! But January is the month when it all comes to a head, and temperatures dip to a remarkably low 20ºF at the hottest point of the day, and just 1ºF at night. Suffice it to say, Wisconsin residents don’t spend much time outdoors when winter hits!

Too often, residents of cold-climate regions do not invest enough in the insulation of their home. Their home suffers from sufficient protection from the elements, and they are forced to spend more money on their energy bills to stay warm. Fortunately, we at United Building Supply Inc. have the necessary insulation pieces that will help any home boost its ability to keep the cold air out and warm air in.

Stay Warm Without Breaking the Bank

Unlike the warmer summer temperatures, when the cool winter weather settles in you do have the option of layering and using blankets to keep warm within the home. But these strategies are not a permanent solution to an annual problem. Rather than face the elements with a less-than-stellar insulation setup, allow the experts at United Building Supply Inc. to get you the materials you need to see your insulation project to completion. In addition, we have products in numerous other categories, including decking, windows, doors, and trim! Don’t be left out in the cold this winter, buy your insulation products from us and keep warm!
