The licensed contractors at Segelman Shaw Roofing, Siding & Gutters handle the façade needs of all residential and commercial buildings.

They inspect and repair rain gutters atop homes and condos, ensuring water drains correctly from the downspout and preventing clogs with gutter guards. Buildings receive a facelift with brand new aluminum, vinyl, and HardiePlank siding made of fireproof fiber cement, while energy-efficient windows and solar panels help decrease monthly electric bills.

Click and Improve is an online database that fixes homeowners up with licensed contractors, repairmen, and industry experts. With hundreds of services available at the click of a computer mouse, the business's online process breaks down the exact details—and the exact price—of each service before sending a home-improvement specialist to the site. Customers use a drop-down menu to choose the service they need completed, and after filling out a thorough questionnaire and birthday wish list, they can attach videos and photos to their web account to more accurately convey repair needs. Click and Improve then rounds up competitive bids or offers pre-priced services, and upon the job's completion, homeowners relay their feedback through the company's website.
