Updating Your Home Part 1: Is Your Home Due for an Update?
Energy efficiency and good curb appeal are the hallmarks of a well-built home. However, over time, your home will lose both of these characteristics. How can you tell if your home is due for an update? Our roofing experts at Colonial Remodeling LLC list the telltale signs to watch out for in today’s post.
High Electricity Bills
Have you noticed a steady increase in your monthly electricity bill? According to experts, a steady decline in energy efficiency will cause appliances (especially the HVAC system) to work more, which means they’ll use up more electricity. A spike in energy bills means it’s time to have your home checked for drafts or insulation problems.
Faded Exterior Colors
The roof and the siding are major visual components of a home. Over time, their fresh color and texture can become faded because of wear and tear from constant exposure to the elements. Once your exterior starts fading, your home’s curb appeal will suffer. Hire a roofing contractor to perform the necessary repairs to restore your home’s aesthetic appeal.
Cracks and Warps
Also signs of wear and tear over the years, cracks and warps can appear in almost any part of the home’s exterior, although they usually affect roof shingles. Cracks and warps not only become a major entry point for rainwater that can damage more vulnerable parts of your home, but they can also diminish your home’s beauty.
More Frequent Repairs
Even a properly-maintained roof will eventually develop problems. It doesn’t matter if you have issues repaired ASAP; if you find yourself needing a hail storm repair contractor after every storm, it could mean that your roof is at the end of its service life and needs to be replaced.
