Homeowners often focus on the ROI when considering a home upgrade. For those who aren’t looking to sell their home anytime soon, however, longevity is a top priority when investing in an upgrade. But what are the upgrades that will provide the best performance for the longest amount of time? Tango & Gatti, a top roofing contractor in the state, lists them below.
Mold is the bane of every homeowner’s existence. Many homeowners might not even realize their house has mold until it has already spread to multiple rooms.
The key to preventing mold growth is preventing moisture damage. Mold grows in dark and moist places, which are common in homes with leaking roofs. As such, the best way to prevent mold from taking hold in your house is by investing in a sturdy, water-resistant roofing system.
A contractor will be able to advise you about whether you need a roof replacement. They’ll usually inspect your roof to check its current condition and estimate its remaining lifespan.
More Efficient Gutters
Rainwater slides off the roof’s surface and enters your gutters and downspouts. You need to make sure your gutters are able to capture all the water runoff.
Ask yourself the following questions to determine if your gutters need an upgrade:
Do you have sagging or warped gutters?
Do the gutters have rust or algae growth on them?
Does rainwater overflow from your gutters when it rains hard?
If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then it’s time to get a new gutter system.
Your siding may not be as exposed to rain, water and UV rays as your roofing system, but it has to be just as durable. Leaks or damp spots in your siding are a sign it’s time for an upgrade.
Even the sturdiest roof won’t protect you if it isn’t installed properly. That’s why you should only hire a reputable contractor to install your roof properly.
