Roof Maintenance: What, Why, and How

When it comes to properly maintaining a roof, very few homeowners understand what to do, how to do it, or even why they should. It’s not as clear-cut as re-staining a deck, or getting an oil change for your car. But proper roof maintenance is vital to maintain your home’s beauty and, in some cases, it’s essential for its longevity.

Metal Roofs: What are the Benefits?

As their electric bills continue to raise higher and higher, many homeowners are turning toward energy efficient remodeling. Besides installing energy efficient windows, or vinyl siding, another excellent option is a metal roof.

Metal roofs reflect the sun’s rays, decreasing the need for your air conditioner to run, and can even help make your home more temperate without air conditioning at all. Not only do metal roofs decrease your electric bill, but they’re also a green alternative—they’ll help decrease greenhouse emissions and lower your carbon footprint.

Keep Mulch a Foot below Home Siding

As spring approaches and gardeners break out their trowels and pruners, many homeowners will start their annual mulching campaigns. The benefits of mulching are innumerable: It helps the soil retain moisture, keeps the soil cool, and provides the soil with essential nutrients. Proper mulching, like a proper gutter system, will also help prevent soil erosion.
