We can’t help but be grateful for everything we have in our life as we gather with family and enjoy the yummy food that comes with this time of year. It’s safe to say that 2021 hasn’t gone as planned, but one thing hasn’t changed: our love for assisting countless Washingtonians in ensuring their roofs are in good shape and ready to tolerate whatever the weather deals out.
While giving thanks has taken on a new meaning this year, we do our best to remember the basic things we may take for granted, such as a solid roof. Having a safe and healthy roof is something to be extremely grateful for, as the COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated this year, with more people staying at home than ever before.
Here are three reasons to be grateful for a healthy roof as we contemplate and give thanks for the countless blessings we have in life. And, as we head towards 2022, if you need or want a healthier roof, contact Four Seasons Roofing, and we’ll get started on your roofing project right away.
1. It Safeguards Your Most Valuable Asset
Purchasing a home is one of, if not the most, significant expenditures a person will make in their lifetime. Protecting this investment and ensuring that any necessary repairs and maintenance are completed ensures that it will last as long as possible. While repairing a refrigerator may appear to be a higher priority, maintaining your roof is just as essential.
To keep a watchful eye on your roof as it ages, we recommend scheduling a free, no-obligation roof inspection every two years. You can effectively protect your house by catching problems early on before they turn into disasters. Making any little repairs that are required to keep your roof in good shape will save you time, money, and hassles in the long run.
2. It Increases the Value of Your House
Even if you aren’t planning to sell your home right now, a well-maintained roof adds to the value of your property and improves its curb appeal. A leaking or outdated roof might be a deal breaker for some homeowners because it adds costs to their foreseeable future in that home. A healthy roof, especially one that has just been replaced, gives the impression that the house is newer overall, attracting more interest and a higher selling price. Even if you don’t plan to sell anytime soon, prioritizing a healthy roof will improve your home’s existing appeal and put more money back in your pocket if and when you do sell.
3. It Keeps the Heat and Cold at Bay
Your roof is one of the best barriers between you and the outdoors during our beautiful Washington summers and cool-to-cold winters. A healthy roof improves your home’s overall efficiency by keeping hot air out in the summer and holding more cool air inside in the winter. In the summer, a light-colored roof is especially beneficial because it absorbs less heat than a dark roof. With a healthy roof that keeps your home at a comfortable temperature, you’ll be able to save money.
