Add Value to Your Home with New Siding

siding installation lawrenceville gaAre you considering putting your home on the market? Are you searching for ways to increase value without wasting precious time or spending too much money? Are you looking to improve the quality of your home without the intention to sell, but want to know that the upgrade you choose will raise your future sell price? Consider new siding with Tight Line Exteriors, the siding installation company of choice in Lawrenceville!

New Siding Improves Curb Appeal

The impression your home radiates from the curb has an immense bearing on its value. A buyer's first impression will always be what they see as they pull toward the lot, regardless of the beautiful fixtures you've installed or the large bedrooms you are offering. If you want to get a buyer inside of your home, the outside of your home has to speak of quality. The professionals at Tight Line Exteriors will improve the curb appeal of your home with siding installation in Lawrenceville and surrounding cities.

New Siding Increases Energy Efficiency

When new siding is installed, a new layer of insulation is put in place. Insulation keeps the temperature of your home from escaping through the outer walls while also keeping the heat or cool of the outdoors from reaching the inside. This inevitably brings down heating and air costs dramatically. With lower energy costs comes higher home value.

Siding Installation in Lawrenceville Is Faster and More Affordable Than Other Home Improvement Projects

Many homeowners consider installing an extra bathroom or remodeling a kitchen. While these projects may increase the value of your home, they will also cost you far more in labor and materials, which is calculated as two separate estimated costs, and will require more time for project completion. With siding installation, you receive one quote that includes labor and materials so you know what you will spend. Unlike other home improvement projects, most siding jobs can be completed in two weeks and financing is available for siding installation.

In conclusion, it's easy to see how new siding can improve not only the value, but the look, feel and quality of your home. Tight Line Exteriors has helped thousands of homeowners increase their home's value with new siding installation and we are ready to help you do the same! Tight Line Exteriors has partnered with James Hardy Siding and offers only the highest quality products to pair with the excellent customer satisfaction you are guaranteed to experience.

Car Accident Case Study Under Georgia Law

Defendant crossed over several lanes of interstate traffic and struck my client's vehicle, causing it to roll over four (4) times. After multiple surgeries to her dominant hand, my client has over $600,000 in medical bills and lost her job. The at-fault driver claims one of the tires suddenly blew out causing her to lose control. The at-fault driver carried only $25,000 of applicable insurance. Since there were no assets over insurance limits, my client offered to settle with the at-fault driver for her $25,000 of insurance, despite the largely inadequate recovery for her injuries. However, the at-fault driver's insurance company ignored essential terms of my client's offer to settle and decided they would call the shots and do it their way.


What Is The Law In Georiga?

Under Georgia law, when an insurer fails to properly pay policy limits on a claim that is clearly worth more than policy limits, claims for bad faith can arise. If bad faith can be proven, it can mean that an entire verdict will get paid by the at-fault driver's insurance regardless of the insurance limits. Here, it could mean s fair recovery for my client's injuries. Since the at-fault driver's insurance company decided they wanted to dictate the terms of settlement, we rejected their offer and filed suit. It was funny that, after their initial attempt to control the settlement, a claims adjuster and her manager showed up personally at my office to try to deliver a $25,000 check. It was rejected, again.

Preserving Evidence

When we were hired about three (3) weeks after the wreck, we immediately notified the at-fault driver and her insurance company that the car and its tires must be preserved. Despite several subsequent letters again telling them to preserve the car and its tires, the at-fault driver's insurance company gave orders to the storage facility to get rid of the car. And that is what happened. The most important piece of evidence was destroyed before anyone could have an expert do proper testing on the tire to determine the real cause of its failure. Driver error and poor maintenance, both of which are the driver's fault, not just manufacturing defects, cause tire failure.

Fighting Insurance Companies

The insurance company took away the only opportunity for us to defend against their unfounded argument that the tire was just defective. They claim the destruction of evidence was inadvertent. We were not so sure, so we filed a motion asking the judge to punish them for their actions. The judge agreed that the other side was on proper notice to preserve the car, but that they failed to do so; they destroyed material evidence. Therefore, the judge will not allow them to argue that a tire defect caused the wreck, essentially stripping them of their case because they tried to strip my client of her case.

Compensation You Deserve

If this case doesn't settle prior to court, we will be asking a jury for an amount that well, will make the at-fault driver's insurance company wish they would have settled.

It is tenacious dedication that wins car accident cases. It is tenacious dedication that teaches insurance companies they cannot squeeze out the little guy. If later confidentiality doesn't prohibit it, I will update this post to let everyone know the final outcome.
