While the warm Atlantic sea breezes gently skirt the Massachusetts south shore coastline next week, so will the sights and sounds surrounding the annual Marshfield County Fair. For the 150th year, the seaside burgh of Marshfield will spring to life with Ferris wheels, live music, gourmet pizza, and giant pumpkins. You’ll need all eight crazy days that the fair will be running to experience the excitement the Marshfield Fairgrounds has to offer—including our RIHI Remote Team. We will be demonstrating just how important our Protec products are for homes perched on the coastline. The ocean air will unremittingly batter your home over time. Let us show you how to better prepare your home’s exterior for summer’s salt-water drenched air assault.
If you live near the ocean and have furnished your home with wooden shingles or clapboard, you undoubtedly have first-hand knowledge of the blistering devastation salt air can create. Operating within Rhode Island for close to 70 years now, we’ve helped many a coastal homeowner strengthen their home against beach-driven breezes. Our Protec siding provides decades of durability for all our friends who enjoy waterfront property. For example, our Cedar Ridge siding contains a moisture management that allows your home to breathe while reducing access water vapor trapped within your walls. When left ignored, this water accumulation promotes algae and mildew growth which will severely damage your home. A home that breathes properly never has to worry about this moisture buildup.
Another concern our seaside-living friends come to us with are hurricanes. Albeit rare as of late, Rhode Island and Massachusetts have seen our share of hurricanes, which is why our Protec siding is tailored to face wind gusts up to 200 mph. Should you find yourself skeptical of our speed test—feel free to visit our website where we have videotaped our composite siding laughing at a cannon-fired baseball shot into it. Now, that, gentle reader, is durability!
Don’t be afraid to take the scenic drive to the south shore next week. Everyone should experience the Marshfield Fair at least once in his or her life! Otherwise, reach out to us at 401-739-1001 for any of your ocean and beach related questions.
