Decorations and extensive landscaping aside, your roof has to look the best, as it takes up the majority of your house’s visible exterior. It’s the first thing people see pulling up or driving by. If you’re planning to remodel, always remember to match the style and look of your roof with your siding. This will significantly improve your home’s curb appeal.
Before starting your roof, always hire a professional to inspect for any damage. Have the contractor look for signs of nail pops through the shingles, missing shingles, creased shingles, hail damage, blistering shingles. Examining for large ice dams at your roof’s edges would also help. Check your attic space for leaking or water damage, as well. Upgrading your roof would go more smoothly if you determine other factors that would affect the project.
What’s your roof made of? Due to the low cost, asphalt shingles are the commonly used material in almost 75 percent of American roofs. Asphalt products come organic, made of cellulose fibers and fiberglass. Both are weather-resistant and have a lot of styles, colors, and textures to fit your needs. Though fiberglass shingles are frailer in the winter, it’s better at fire and moisture resistance.
