Roofing Upgrades For Your HomeBecoming a homeowner is a major rite of passage for any adult. There are so many exciting factors to look forward to and have control over in your new property. You can choose your own paint colors, the layout of your new kitchen, and what shrubs you want planted in the front yard. You can have fun with all of the details.

However, on the flip side of the excitement lies the reality check that a homeowner usually finds themselves facing at the most inconvenient of times. Owning a home also requires your attention to the structural integrity of your home and the upgrades and installations necessary to keep it properly maintained.

The roof of your new home may have been recently installed or getting close to needing to be replaced. Some homeowners are familiar with the basic ways in which to care for your roof, while others are completely in the dark.

We want to share 3 suggested roofing upgrades that will help to keep your roof in great shape for many years down the road.

  1. Keep a close eye on your chimney cap. The cap on your chimney should be airtight and protected from birds and pesky animals creeping around. An airtight seal keeps rain and moisture out while saving your energy. A tight chimney cap also aids in keeping your home warm inside even when the chimney is not in use.
  2. The flashing on your eaves is intended to stop most all air and water problems. In winter, they prevent ice dams from becoming an issue by allowing water to shed appropriately when it melts. Flashing also stops moisture from penetrating the walls of your home and causing further damage in that capacity.
  3. You will save yourself money in the long haul by carefully choosing the right type of shingles. You should speak to your roofer at Webb Professional Remodeling about the best and most cost effective shingle choice for your home. Lighter-colored shingles will save you money on your heating and cooling bill by blocking heat absorption.

These roofing upgrades are something to put a lot of thought and consideration into and staying on top of the necessary steps will put your mind at ease. You will enjoy your home much more knowing that it’s going to stay dry inside!
