Dry Rot Repair

What:
Many houses suffer from dry rot. Dry rot is any wood that loses its structural integrity due to water damage, termites, or both. Identifying dry rot is critical especially in seismically active areas like San Francisco.

Why:
Dry rot can cause thousandths and thousandths of dollars worth of repair, if not identified and repaired in a timely fashion. In a way dry rot is like cancer of the wood, because it spreads over time. Usually dry rot is present everywhere where wood is effected by moisture for a long period of time.

How:
Green Logic can identify and repair your dry rot, by using the latest techniques, testing, and prevention known to date. Since dry rot can sap the strength of your damaged wood. If the damage is so great that the wood can’t be replaced, we can reinforce said wood using the ‘Sister’ method. ‘Ssitering’ refers to a repair which first cuts back the rotted piece of wood, then anchoring a component of equal or greater load bearing capacity to pieces not suffering from dry rot.

Roofing

What:
There are different types of roofing available on the market today, from flat, hip, gable, cross-hipped, to pyramid. Roofing structures are catetegorize by their shapes and types, as well as their ability to repel water, i.e. drainage capacity. Green roofing primarily focuses on properly insulating you house, and providing a bigger area on said roof for solar panels.

Why:
Usually roofs are made to last for no more then 10 years, green logic in using latest in development on roofing and roofing materials, can provide you with a roof that is properly insulated made out of the greenest material, and can last you up to 15 years, while providing you with maximum insulation.

How:
Green Logic can help you look into the future, properly positioning your roof angle to provide you with the biggest roofing for a possible solar panel installation in the future. Your roofing can be pre-wired and properly reinforced to save you big on solar panel installation and service costs in the future.

Concrete

What:
Concrete is used more than any other man-made material in the world. As of 2006, about 7.5 cubic kilometres of concrete are made each year—more than one cubic metre for every person on Earth. Concrete is used everywhere from slabs to foundations, not too mention impressive load bearing structures like the Hoover Dam.

Why:
Building with concrete minimizes the depletion of natural resources. With its 100-year service life, concrete construction conserves other resources by reducing the need for wood and other more perishable materials. Concrete absorbs CO2 throughout its lifetime through carbonation, helping reduce its carbon footprint. Also concrete walls leak air far less than those made of wood-frames. Air leakage accounts for a large percentage of energy loss from a home. Finally, using recycled wood from your project to form concrete structures can greatly reduce impact on our forests.

How:
Green Logic saves all wood materials from demolitions to be used to form concrete structures for every project. We believe that even your concrete can be GREEN.

Water Proofing

What:
Waterproofing describes making an object waterproof or water-resistant. In construction, a building or structure is waterproofed with the use of membranes to protect contents underneath or within as well as protecting structural integrity.

Why:
A building or structure needs waterproofing as concrete itself will not be watertight on its own.

How:
Leak identification and inspection is taken really seriously by Green Logic. We track moisture with every possible development in technology today, from tube cameras to robotic cameras we can find a way to look for water damage. It is important for a homeowner to identify and eliminate any type of water penetration in their homes. To prevent possible dry rot or termite infestation in the future. Using polyurethane and other exterior compounds we will make sure that your fix is permanent and will last you long time.

Windows repair and replacement

What:
Replacing the windows, or doors in your home, to maintain comfort and conserve energy.

Why:
An average house uses most of its energy through windows and doors. Properly installed window will guarantee your safety, security, and energy efficiency.

How:
Double pane window replacement is huge for Green Logic. We have the largest selection of energy efficient windows in California. We can even install UV filters on your singe pane window glass to prevent energy loss. There is not a shape or size of the window, that Green Logic can’t match.

Exterior Decks

What:
Green decks are designed to have longer life cycles.

Why:
Making a right choice of the type material used for your deck can be essential to the lifespan of the deck structure.

How:
There are a lot of green materials available to date other then pressure treated and redwood, that Green Logic can help you identify. Most of these materials are named from recycled materials, and can actually last you longer and be cheaper then what you see in ordinary supply houses.

Tile

What:
Tiles are generally used for covering roofs, floors, and walls, showers, or other objects such as tabletops. Tiles are often used to form wall and floor coverings, and can range from simple square tiles to complex mosaics. Tiles are most often made from ceramic, with a hard glaze finish, but other materials are also commonly used, such as glass, marble, granite, slate, and reformed ceramic slurry, which is cast in a muld and fired.

Why:
Because tile is so durable, it will last that much longer before it needs to be replaced. While some other products may wind up in a landfill in six to ten years, tile can easily last 50 years, and of course, some types can last much longer. Tiles made from recycled materials are no exception - their durability is equal to or greater to tiles not manufactured from recycled materials.

How:
Green Logic employs the best artisans in the bay area, that lay tiles like nobody else. We have thousandths of green tile and marble suppliers that can help you identify and install the right green product for your home.
