For 30 years, the home-improvement contractors at Columbia Exteriors have been installing quality windows, doors, roofing, and siding that beautify homes and bolster energy efficiency. The airtight, insulated chambers of new windows trap in escaping heat, and shingled roofing materials keep out the elements. Technicians can also robe exteriors in soffit siding or fascia roof coverings that help prevent damage by covering any gaps that could collect water.
