Renovations Engineered for Efficiency

When remodeling, homeowners are looking for ways to increase the value and functionality of their home. And what better way to do that than by upgrading to the latest and greatest in home efficiency?

Plugging up leaks that allow cold and hot air to slip into your house and drive up your energy bill is an important first step in creating an energy-efficient home. These leaks are often found around doors and windows, but could also be hidden in your attic.

That’s where we come in! From attic insulation to energy-efficient windows and room additions, Liberty Builders of Texas has the knowledge and training to install the best products on the market. Products that will not only impress potential buyers, but will help you live comfortably and save you money in maintenance and energy costs year after year. Here are just a few ways we can help:

  1. Windows – Replacing old, leaky windows with higher-efficiency models can make your home greener to begin with. Add in Liberty’s Generations Windows and you’ll experience up to a 40% decrease in energy costs! And if that isn’t enough, at Liberty Builders all San Antonio windows and doors are upgraded with our Secure Glass Package to protect against break-ins and reduce outside noise by 50% when compared to ordinary glass.
  1. Doors – Having a quality exterior door that isn’t wood or a heavy metal can help reduce drafts and cut energy bills drastically while improving your home’s appearance. At Liberty Builders, we believe in Therma-Tru fiberglass doors because they offer 5X greater insulation value than wood and more than 2X the air infiltration performance of high-quality steel.
  1. Patio Enclosures – Whether you have an existing roof or patio that you want to convert into an air-conditioned space or are starting from scratch, Liberty Builders can help design the perfect enclosure to fit your needs. Not only do we use the insulated aluminum roof and wall panel system in your enclosure, we build around our premium energy-saving windows and doors to help your sunroom achieve the best possible performance in energy loss prevention.
  1. Attic Insulation – “It turns out that about half of the homes in the United States are under-insulated,” says Kateri Callahan, president of the Alliance to Save Energy. With those odds, there’s a good chance your home isn’t as insulated as it should be, resulting in major energy loss. Our offering of Owens Corning attic insulation can cut heating and cooling costs by up to 20%, keeping your home comfortable all year round.

Renovating for efficiency can seem like a daunting and expensive task, but it doesn’t have to be. Plan your renovation in stages with Liberty Builders of Texas and your home will be energy efficient in no time! Give us a call today at (210) 714-1655 for a free in-home consultation!

Breathe Easy With Mastic Siding

The very first thing people see when they visit your home is the exterior. Let Liberty Builders of Texas help you make a great first impression with Mastic Siding! Liberty Builders is the largest Mastic Siding applicator in the state of Texas and the only Mastic Elite Contractor in the San Antonio area.

This distinction tells homeowners that the industry leader in home exteriors has confirmed us as a professional that follows reputable business practices, uses highly-trained installers and has proven product knowledge. Your exterior siding project will be in good hands with our highly trained and certified company.

When choosing Mastic siding to remodel your home’s exterior, you get the classic look of freshly painted or stained wood with exceptional durability. So you get a beautiful exterior product that’s built to last and easy to maintain, which means you’ll spend more time enjoying your home, and less time working on it. Unlike fiber cement siding, vinyl siding allows you peace of mind because it will never need painting, caulking, or patching and it won’t peel, rot or split over time – saving you thousands of dollars in maintenance costs.

Here are just a few of the reasons why we recommend and are proud to sell Mastic vinyl siding:

Industry Preferred

There is a reason why professionals and homeowners prefer the low-maintenance of vinyl siding to wood, fiber cement, brick or stucco options. Vinyl provides a safe, eco-friendly option that is easier to handle, store, and install. When installing vinyl siding, contractors can breathe easy and do not have to wear face masks since it is free of silica dust – a powder found in fiber cement siding that is known to cause silicosis and increase the risk of lung cancer when inhaled.

Durability & Beauty

You can have both! Each panel is manufactured from the highest quality materials and engineered to last a lifetime. Mastic siding stays tightly attached to your home in high winds, resists minor impacts, and performs beautifully—even in the harshest weather conditions. And with 35 colors, including solid and weathered cedar, Mastic has more options than anyone in the industry. But better than that, Mastic products ensure that your home’s colorful new appearance stays that way. Our rich, deep hues are engineered and tested to resist fading.

Going Green

Mastic vinyl siding contributes points towards green building programs and is green-approved by the NAHB Research Center. No painting, sealing or caulking also means that no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are added to the environment during installation or maintenance. Mastic Structure® EPS Insulated Siding also covers the entire wall with a blanket of insulation helping to reduce energy costs.

With beauty that’s more than skin deep, backed by a history of industry-changing innovation and proven quality, it’s easy to see why Mastic vinyl siding is the best choice for your home renovation. And to top it off, when purchasing Mastic siding, you’ll be supporting American-made products from an American-owned company. Now that you know the facts, the choice is yours.
