JRC, Inc. installs the following types of fascia: Wooden Fascia Boards - Fascia: Fascia board holds the gutters and prevents moisture from causing damage to the roofing system. Typically, wood fascia boards are made of spruce, pine or fir. Composite Fascia Boards - Composite lumber is made from a mix of recycled wood chips, plastic and sawdust that is bound together with epoxy resin. While not as popular, this material can be used to make fascia boards. Vinyl Fascia Boards - Vinyl is prominent because of its durability, ease of installation and variety of colors available. Vinyl fascia materials come with less maintenance than wood, reducing your long-term fascia costs.
Soffit: Soffits function as an essential component of the home's roofing system to keep moisture out of the walls, foundation and rafters. Soffits also help to stave off mold and mildew growth that can damage the home's structure and cause health problems for the occupants. Soffits are available in different material types to coordinate with the fascia and other roofing components. JRC, Inc. installs the following types of Soffit Systems: Vinyl is the most commonly used soffit type on buildings today. They can be installed on newly built homes and retrofitted onto older buildings when the roof is replaced. Vinyl is the lowest cost soffit option, yet it is durable. UPVC is a type of plastic material that is easy to maintain and install. Aluminum is low maintenance and comes in many colors. Wood soffits are most often found on older historical buildings. The wood is attractive, but requires frequent maintenance to avoid rotting.
Gutters & Downspouts:
JRC, Inc. installs the following types of gutter systems: OGEE / K-style gutters: gutter systems that have flat bottoms and backs. Te front side of the gutter usually has a decorative shape, such as a curve or ogee, that mimics crown molding. Many styles are available.

Half-round gutters: They are exactly what the name suggests: half-round tubes. Half-round gutters often are found on older, historic buildings. Downspouts: Downspouts come as either round or square, in widths from 3 to 6 inches. The most common sizes are rectangular: 2 inches by 3 inches 3 inches by 4 inches Decorative varieties, such as spiral shapes, are available. The size and number of downspouts you’ll need depends on the capacity of your system.
Columns: Fiberglass Columns are the most popular column material to use when replacing wood columns and also when building a new building. The reason for this is very simple; they are the most durable overall. PVC Column Wraps are quick and easy to install as well as lightweight, strong and paintable. They hold up to warping, shrinkage, decay, insects and they don't ever need to be painted. Aluminum Columns are by far the most affordable columns. These columns also have a centered load weight from 20,000 pounds all the way up to 43,000 depending on the size that you order. They also come in seven different colors and are basically maintenance free. The paint is powder coated which is great for the outdoor elements. Polymer Stone Columns are a unique product in the stone porch column industry. Manufactured from a composition of highly durable polyester resins, these polymer stone columns have the look and feel of real cast stone but they weigh approximately 50% less than standard stone columns.
Railings and Fencing:
JRC, Inc. installs the following types of railings and fencing: Vinyl Railing / Fencing : Vinyl fences have become popular in recent times due to their versatility and affordability. These fences are available in different colors and textures. They need very little maintenance and do not have to be painted or protected from termites and rot. Composite Deck Railing / Fencing: Composite decking material is one of the most popular materials for outdoor uses because of its major benefits. The material’s composition and durability make it a low maintenance option that holds up in any climate. Wood Deck Railing / Fencing: Wood is the most traditional material for decks and deck railing / fencing designs. It is one of the most customizable materials available and by using different finishes paired with different wood species, you can create a complete different design. Types of Wood Deck Railings: Pressure Treated Lumber, Cedar, Mahogany Redwood Metal Deck Railing: Types of Metal Deck Railings Steel: While steel is one the most common building materials, it’s not the most used deck railing metal. It does have the durability that you would expect with metal. There are two recommended rust prohibitive finishes for steel railings: galvanized steel and powder coated steel. Both coat your deck railing in a protective barrier that can prolong the life of your steel railing. Aluminum: Aluminum deck railing is naturally rust prohibitive and can stand up to harsh weather conditions with minimal upkeep. A common finish for aluminum railing is powder coat. This process gives the already low maintenance material a weather proof finish and can be done in custom colors.

Depending on what type of hardwood you get, you may even be able to sand and refinish it in a few years to give it a face lift. You can choose from hardwood flooring options that come in many different colors, finishes and textures, depending on your preference. Carpet: While every kind of carpet would not be appropriate for commercial uses, there are some great commercial carpets that can stand up to a lot of wear and tear. With commercial carpet, you’ll get a very low profile that looks and feels a little bit more comfortable underfoot. Commercial carpet is also one of the most economical choices that is available. Vinyl: There are a number of different vinyl products in today’s flooring market that are really good for commercial use. For instance, you could get vinyl planks that look like hardwood, but offer a little different texture. You can also get vinyl tiles or vinyl sheets that look like tile, stone and almost any other type of flooring. Vinyl is a good option to consider because it is cheaper than most of the other flooring options and it looks very realistic. Concrete: Another option that you may want to consider for a commercial application is concrete. Concrete is obviously one of the most durable flooring choices that you could select for a commercial space. You can stain or finish the concrete and they even make stamps and other solutions to create designs in the floor. Tile: Tile is one of the most elegant and durable flooring options that you could use in a commercial space. It does take a little longer to install because the mortar has to dry, but it gives you a very nice look.
Cabinets and Countertops:
JRC, Inc. installs the following types of countertops: Granite countertops: Granite, the top choice in countertops, is available in a variety of shades such as blacks, whites, greens, corals and beiges, and no two pieces are exactly the same. Granite is available in two finishes. A polished finish results in a shiny look and often darkens the appearance of the stone, while honing is soft and matte. Costs for granite depend on many variables, including color, finish and origin of the stone. Granite typically requires a new protective top coat at least once a year. Quartz countertop: They come in a wide variety of colors, including fire-engine red and apple green, as well as earthy browns, blacks, and creams, with sparkles and veining for the look of granite or marble. But unlike natural-stone slabs, which are mined, these slabs are engineered in a factory. Their primary ingredient is ground quartz (about 94 percent), combined with polyester resins to bind it and pigments to give it color. For some designs, small amounts of recycled glass or metallic flecks are added to the mix. The resins also help make these counters stain and scratch resistant—and nonporous, so they never need to be sealed. Laminate Countertops: Laminate is the most affordable countertop material on the market and comes in an array of colors and designs.
JRC, Inc. installs the following types of lighting: *(per client's specification and project needs) Tubular Fluorescent Lights: One of the most common types of fixtures used in commercial settings. They are typically recessed into suspended ceilings and covered with a frosted or textured lens. Standard fluorescent lights may contain between one and four bulbs, depending on the amount of light needed in the building. These lights are one of the most energy-efficient and long-lasting options available to commercial users. High-intensity Discharge (HID) Lighting / Metal halides: Also known as high-intensity discharge (HID) lighting, is commonly found in warehouses or industrial applications. They typically consist of a ceiling mounted pendant fixture with bulbs and lenses of varying sizes. These lights produce large quantities of very bright light, allowing them to adequately light large spaces. While high pressure halide lights are fairly inefficient, newer low pressure sodium versions are comparable to fluorescent lights when it comes to energy consumption. LED Lighting: LED’s are often seen as the best solution for many reasons. They are the longest lasting option on the market. They operate at the coolest temperature while pulling low wattages with exceptionally high lumen outputs. The only drawback to this lighting option is the initial cost is often more than the other two option, but LED lasts longer so you get a good return on the investment. LED also comes in a variety of lighting models perfect for office lighting such as tubes, bulbs, rope lighting, and more.
There are countless benefits to repainting your business. The look of your facility’s exterior sends a powerful signal. Customers prefer a friendly, aesthetically pleasing business. Just by updating your business with attractive colors and displaying pride in your well maintained property, you can attract more customers and generate more referrals. Commercial painting offers a solution for property and business owners. In addition to improving customer and client confidence, commercial painting can protect the surface of a buildings exterior. Constant exposure to sunlight and weather can have damaging effects on structural material. By coating the exterior with UV resistant and weather combatant paint, the longevity of your business can improve simply by repainting the exterior of your business. Signs it's time to repaint the exterior of your business: Cracking: Failing to repair cracked paint will cause it to flake and peel off. The next layer of material will then be exposed to the elements. Chalking: Chalking on painted materials, such as wood and stucco, appears as a fine powder that rubs off easily on your hand. Over the course of time, chalking degrades the protection paint provides to an exterior surface and also causes colors to fade. Blistering: Moisture can get into the material at unpainted areas, allowing layers of paint to peel and bubble. Mildew and algae: If you spot gray or black spots on the exterior surface of your premises, it may be mildew or algae. This is caused by poor air circulation and excessive moisture. If nothing is done about it, the paint could flake or crack, and its life span will be significantly reduced.
