Adding Value to Your Home or Business
Every home or business improvement project will add value to your investment. This includes all roof improvements and repairs. A new roof actually adds around 15 percent up to 40 percent to the value of your home or business (assuming you own the building). The amount will be based on many factors. Your home will be worth much more with a roof investment. It will increase your entire curb appeal. 40 percent of what is seen from the road is your roof. If you sell your home, there is a good chance that you will recoup at least 56.7 percent of your roof costs.
Who Can Give Professional Advice?
You can obtain solid advice from a professional roofer or general contractor. There are many good reasons that you should seek out the advice of a professional. These include:
*Regular maintenance; the ventilation system and exhaust vents ought to be maintained yearly.
*A visual inspection of your roof; you may need a professional if there are any streaking stains on the shingles. Water stains, moss or mold on your roof would also be problematic.
*If you have asphalt shingles that are over 20 years old, they may need replacing. That is their approximate lifespan.
*Improving your curb appeal; a professional roofer or contractor will have the ability to fully and clearly advise you on all your roofing requirements. The skilled and qualified roofing service will have the ability to perform an overview on all of your roofing needs, and provide an estimate on how much the job will cost.
As with any home improvement project, obtain references and check them to ensure that you’re hiring the best person for the job. Also, check with the Better Business Bureau to ensure there are no complaints against the contractor you have decided to hire.
The Private Sector Services
The Private Sector Services Unit will have the ability to offer advice, a limited amount of financial assistance, and information to landlords, homeowners, and private tenants. This is for those properties that are 10 years or older. The following will be provided:
*property inspection and maintenance reports and plans
*support to those who may be pursuing common repairs. This will include the chairing of meetings in neutral venues along with the coordination. The private sector is a business that is not controlled or operated by the government. This would be a roofing business; the specialty of the business would be to provide all the necessary requirements.
