Fall in Love with Your Roof Again – The Physical and Functional Benefits Of The Roof

Maintenance and design inspiration for DMV and NJ residents to consider when caring for their roof

 

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, couples will be tending to their relationships by showing care and affection for one another. The old saying goes “home is where the heart is” so, now is the perfect time to focus on the love you share with your home and what helps keep you all safe and protected – your roof! Luckily, our professionals here at MLM Home Improvement have created some relationship advice to get you and your roof on the same page this year with both form and function.

Give your roof some much needed attention:

Your roof serves as the protector of your home, shielding your loved ones from the elements and ensuring you stay comfortable and dry. It’s not only a vital part of the exterior, but also essential to your comfort within the interior of the home in many ways, such as helping to regulate the temperature of the home. Like every relationship, your roof needs some regular attention and sometimes needs a refresh. Certified roofing professionals are the experts you need to help you put some spark back in your relationship, determine exactly what your roof needs, as well as provide intelligent solutions and services to address any issues.

Update Your Roof’s Style with a New Look:

While safety and reliability for harsh weather remain the primary focus of a roof renovation, that doesn’t mean you can’t create a look that you love too! Just like a brand new haircut, a home that aesthetically pleases and reflects who you are can have a significant impact on not only how others view your home, but also how you feel in it. Owens Corning offers a free service called Design EyeQ, which enables homeowners to experience and test out different shingle designs and colors to find out which combination perfectly fits their style.

To Each their Own:

Everyone has their own distinct taste and style, all of which work together to make them unique. When it comes to the roof, it’s no different. If you are looking for a classic look, asphalt may be a great option for you!

If you are in the market for a modern look, metal roofing materials might make a handsome match. Metal roofs are known to be extremely versatile in their design capabilities and their lightweight, yet durable nature is both weather resistant and sustainable. If a unique and warm appearance interests you, a fitting option could be clay tiles. These tiles can even be glazed to provide homeowners with the color of their choice! Whatever a homeowner’s choice may be, it has never been easier to customize the look and appearance of your roof.

Long-Term Commitment:

In a relationship, sometimes doing a little now can go a long way toward cultivating a healthy, long-lasting love. It’s no different when it comes to your home and your roof. By choosing to show your roof a little love here and there by practicing small maintenance habits, such as monthly gutter cleaning and shingle inspection, homeowners can make a lasting impact on the long-term health of their roof. This will save time and money down the road!

Since February is the month dedicated to showing a little extra love, considering taking the time to show your roof that you care. Similar to a relationship with that important someone, a healthy roof requires attention, protection and maintenance to be the best version of itself. If you feel this change could be a good fit for your home and need any help along the way, your friends at MLM Home Improvement are ready and qualified to step up and help make your roof the one of your dreams!
