Youth Sponsorship- Shannon Marley

Total Construction Services has awarded 5 youth with a $500 sponsorship in the activity of their choice, whether it be a sport or a camp. This is our way of giving back to the community that has given us so much since we opened in 1987.

Shannon Marley is 13 years old and going into the 8th grade at Glenwood Community Middle School. Shannon’s big interest is music. She is learning the piano, but is most interested in vocal performance. She is an alto in her middle school Honor Choir and was featured as a soloist in her school’s last choral concert. Shannon auditioned and was selected for a place in UNO’s Middle School Honor Choir with students from all over Nebraska and Southwest Iowa.

“This was a big achievement for her and a lot of time, effort, and practice went into getting her ready for it,” Shannon’s father John says.

Shannon would like to take voice lessons to further her talent, and this is what the sponsorship funds would go toward.

Total Construction’s Youth Sponsorship Program is just another way that we are giving back to the community and the people who are a part of it. We hope to continue this going forward.

Youth Sponsorship- Sierran Nutter

Total Construction Services has awarded 5 youth in Nebraska and the surrounding areas with a $500 sponsorship in the activity of their choice, whether it be a sport or a camp. This is our way of giving back to the community that has given us so much since we opened in 1987.

At the age of 12 Sierran Nutter decided to give her life to Christ. The following summer she went on her first mission trip with other members of her youth group at Capital City Christian Church in Lincoln. Following the devastating storms that hit Joplin, Missouri the kids did as much as they could in four days to help. The helped with laundry for those who had no resourced to do it themselves anymore and helped sort donations of personal care items and then distributed them.

Since then she has continued to grow in her faith. She has attended camps in Colorado, Indiana and Nebraska. She helped pay her way to many of these by working at the fireworks stand at her church. She has recently signed up for a trip to Table in the Wilderness in Centennial, Wyoming where she will share the gospel and fellowship with other youth. This will likely be her last ‘church camp’ as she just graduated Norris High School, but she is looking for other missions opportunities. She plans to attend college at Wayne State in the fall majoring in Pre-Physical Therapy. There is a thriving student ministry there and she is looking forward to joining.

The sponsorship will go towards her camp and any other mission trips she is looking to do this summer. Sierran is just one of the many amazing youth that Total Construction is sponsoring.

4 Benefits of Replacing Your Old Windows

There comes a time in the lifecycle of any house when you have to consider replacing the windows. You may be hesitant at first, especially if you don’t how much you stand to gain from the replacement. In this post, the top construction company in Lincoln, NE, lists four benefits that our replacement windows offer your home.

  1. Energy Savings

Outdated windows cannot block thermal transfer as well as modern units. In most cases, they lack weatherproofing features, which allows drafts to seep in and increase your energy bills each month. Replacement windows can eliminate this leakage and help you enjoy better savings on utility bills.11222

  1. Enhanced Appearance

Today’s windows come in a wide array of colors and other options, which can be used to give your home a major facelift. No matter the style of your home, we are confident that you will find a window that suits your taste and budget.

  1. Noise Reduction

If you live near the airport or on a busy street, the noise in your house can become disturbing. Replacing your windows with dual-pane glass can make your home more soundproof. After all, who doesn’t want more peace and quiet in their home?

  1. Maintenance Ease

Windows endure the brunt of harsh weather conditions. If your old windows have wood frames, you probably know how hard it is to keep them looking good, especially after many years. Replacement units, on the other hand, tend to be very low-maintenance. A simple wipe every now and then will leave them looking clean and fresh.

With Total Construction Services, replacing your old windows is just one call away. As the leading general contractor in Des Moines, Iowa, we provide an exciting selection of siding, windows and other home improvement solutions to keep your home in top shape.

Ask the Expert: “How Long Will My Roofing Project Take?”

Ask the Expert: “How Long Will My Roofing Project Take?”

Clock face and calendar composite

Replacing a roof is a big undertaking that is usually preceded by plenty of thought and planning on the homeowner’s part.  There are plenty of reasons to have new roofing in Omaha, NE installed.

  • Purchase of a new home with an old or aesthetically outdated roof.
  • Noticeable signs of aging like cracked, warped and curling shingles.
  • Damage after a major storm or other weather event.
  • High heating and cooling bills and temperature that is uneven between floors of a home.
  • Leaks in the attic during and after heavy rainfall.
  • Need to increase resale value of a home before it goes on the market.

Crunching the Numbers

Depending on the motivation for replacing a roof, homeowners may have different needs and expectations for the timeframe within which they’d like to have the job completed.  That’s why customers often ask how long the average roof replacement takes.  We give them a ballpark figure of anywhere from one day to two weeks. The exact answer depends on a few factors, including:

  • Square footage of the roof. As common sense dictates, replacing a 2,500 square foot roof will likely take longer than it would for a 1,500 square foot roof. It may mean a difference of a day or two.
  • Weather. Since the condition of your home, the integrity of our workmanship and the safety of our workers are Roofing & More’s main priorities, we reserve the right to postpone or pause the work on a roof replacement in the event of bad weather (rain, snow, hail, etc.). A factor that’s out of our control, weather can make a project take longer than planned.
  • Complexity of the project. Sometimes a simple roof replacement turns into a not-so-simple larger-scale home repair. When contractors run into structural problems that weren’t evident during the initial assessment, we alert the homeowner to the extra time and cost required to address the unforeseen issue.

At Total Construction Services, our goal is to communicate clearly with the homeowner throughout the process so that in the event that the job takes longer than expected, the homeowner knows why. We complete any roof replacement in Omaha in a timely manner with thorough excellence. Call today to schedule a free roof assessment.

Ice Damming Causes Roof Damage in Omaha

After the latest bombardment of snow storms, many households throughout the Omaha area had to deal with ice damming. Those nasty icicles, and the inches of snow that create them, can seriously challenge your roofing installation. After the snow melts, it is important to inspect your Omaha roof for damage.

Often times, these storms shed light on poorly installed skylights. After the melt, check the skylights for signs of leaking. Improper insulation, bad installation, as well as other factors, play a role in leaking and should be addressed immediately.

It is also important to inspect your roofing for warping. Warping indicates that the wood underneath the shingles may be compromised, creating a serious issue. Peeling, or bubbling, shingles are another sign that your roofing need attention.

If you think your roof has some damage, call your insurance provider to have the roof inspected. Total Construction Services in Omaha can inspect your roof as well. Our HAAG certified inspectors are a trusted source for insurance agents. We can diagnosis damage and provide a course of action to help protect your home.
