If you have been renovating an old home and you have gutted it to the studs and updated the entire property, and all you have left is the roof, you want to get a great roof. You want to top off all the work you have done by investing in an amazing roof that is going to be visually appealing and durable. Here are some things to keep in mind while you are getting quotes from the roofing contractors, and deciding what to put on your home:
Ditch Asphalt Choose Metal
Skip the traditional asphalt shingle roof and invest in a metal roof for your newly renovated home. The metal provides these great benefits:
Since you are investing in updating the entire home you want to have a home that is protected by a high quality roof, and metal is a high quality material.
Get Electrical Solar Panels
Electrical solar panels can easily be installed on top of your home on the roof at the time that the roof is installed. Talk with your electrician to let them know that you want to add power from the solar panels that are going on the roof. This could save you a lot of money in energy bills and help you have a power source if you lose power from the power lines.
Get Vinyl Gutters
You want vinyl gutters for the home. The vinyl is very durable and has no seems. This means the gutters don't get separated easily. Vinyl is weather and water resistant. Pests can't burrow through the gutters and gutter covers can make keeping the gutters clean easier. Make sure that the gutter drainage is directed away from the home properly.
If you have redone everything in the house and the house is like brand new, you want to make sure that you spend your money on a roof that will last and improve the value of your property. The roofer can give you an estimate for the metal roofing sheets. Make sure you ask about getting the best insulation under the roof to help with heating and cooling expenses. Tell your homeowners insurance company about the roofing material chosen to see if you can get a discount on your policy.
