New Roofing Makes Our House Look New Again

Publié par JesseBrandt

Owning a home can be a lots of work and can cost you a lot of money. Just remember that when you are searching for your first house. Many people might take the price of the home and deduced that they will be able to afford the mortgage payments. What they may be leaving out of the equation though are things like mortgage insurance, higher utility costs and the inevitable repairs that are constant for homeowners. Many times just when you think you are over the hump and expensive item will break forcing you to spend thousands on it. This was the case in our home last year when our water heater broke and it cost us nearly $6000 to replace. We had originally planned to use that money for an extension on our house but those plans have been pushed back indefinitely.

This year the expensive ticket item for repair is our roof. We have been putting off getting new roofing for about four or five years now but a few harsh winters and blistering summers have really tested its strength. We have concluded that our skyrocketing utility bills for heating and air conditioning are partly due to having old windows (something to be fixed next year) and partly due to the deteriorating condition of our roof. So, like any other fix that is beyond our capabilities we had to call in the experts for an estimate. We ended up working with another company and even though we would have rather spent money on something other than roofing, they made it worth our while.

The guy we worked with must have sensed our dismay over the project and he did his best to cheer us up with competitive pricing and a guaranteed timetable of completion. When we were able to step back and put things in perspective it became clear that these were things to be thankful for. Many times working with contractors and builders can be more frustrating than living in a construction zone because of their poor communication skills. You can tell that these roofers really stressed the importance of communication so there are no false expectations or hopes.

We actually got such a great deal on our roofing that we were able to upgrade our roofing tiles to a wood shake style. This style of shingle goes very well with our rustic themed home and they would use for the tiles matches the colors and surrounding area perfectly. The roofing company made it easy for us to select samples and we were even able to set our appointment online.

A few days after they’ve begun the project our home was completed and it looks better than ever. We are always getting compliments from the neighbors and from family who come into visit and each time we hear something like that it makes it feel like our money was well spent. You should give them a call and see if their price point is competitive.
