If you’re planning to do some home improvement projects soon, it’s a good idea to prioritize the ones that will add value to your home and increase its energy efficiency as well. In this post, State Roofing lists three home improvement projects that do just that.
1. Install a Deck Area
Installing a deck really brings up the property value and aesthetics of your home. It also allows you to relax and enjoy the outdoors from the safety and comfort of your home. Additionally, it’s a great way to extend your living space. Keep in mind though that the aesthetics of your deck should match your home’s unique architectural style.
2. Install a Metal Roof
Although asphalt shingles remain a popular choice for most homeowners, metal roofing systems are a good alternative. In fact, it’s an effective option from 3-tab and architectural shingles. Apart from its higher durability and better elemental resilience, a metal roof is also more energy-efficient as it “naturally” reflects radiant heat and UV light which helps you reduce your home cooling costs. In addition, metal roofs can require less maintenance and repairs while keeping their original beautiful look. Factoring in the lower maintenance costs, metal roofs can be much more affordable based on their longevity.
2. Install Seamless Gutters
New gutters should always be part of your new roofing installation. While many consider them an auxiliary part of the home, they play a key role in protecting your roof and your exteriors from water damage. Seamless gutters are the superior choice. Unlike sectional gutters, which have a small space between each component, seamless gutters properly divert water away from your home without spilling or leaking.
