Your home is probably one of your largest investments not to mention a source of pride and the scene for many of your favorite memories. A leaky roof or inefficient windows can wreak havoc on your home and your dreams. It begins with a strong storm, not a hurricane. Just some winds and driving rain. You don’t think anything of it. You never even notice the missing shingle. It’s in your neighbor’s yard so, why would you? The next time it rains, it’s a gentle soaking. You’re thankful you don’t have to water the grass. But what you don’t see is that leak starting in your attic, that slow steady trickle that begins to rot away at a spot in the beam. Or maybe it’s not your roof. But your home’s southern exposure has dried out the seals and caulk in your windows and they’re no longer as effective as they once were. Sure, they keep the elements out but your AC is cooling the neighborhood thanks to those inefficient windows and come winter you’ll be heating the outdoors too. Those leaks are costing you money. Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home investment. And a superior quality roof increases the value of your home as it protects. Your windows keep out the elements and keep your energy costs low. Both of these important pieces to your happy home equation have shelf lives. They don’t last forever and replacing them will ensure you keep your energy costs under control and protect your home investment.
