With friends and family gathering, temperatures dropping, and the delicious food that comes around this time of year, we can't help but feel thankful for all we have in our lives. It's been a great year for Azul Roofing Solutions and the roofing industry as a whole. We've helped countless Arizonans ensure their roofs are healthy and ready against whatever the weather throws at them.
While we're giving thanks, we try to remember the little things that we might take for granted, like a healthy roof. The old phrase, "Just be thankful you have a roof over your head" is one a lot of us have probably heard sometime in our lives. While this might not have made much sense when our parents told us it, having a healthy roof over your head is actually something to be extremely thankful for.
So as we reflect and give thanks for the many blessings we have in life, here are three reasons to be grateful for a healthy roof. And if you're needing or wanting a healthier roof as we go into 2020, contact us and we'll start your roofing project today.
1. It Protects Your Most Valuable Asset
Buying a home is one of the largest, if not the largest, investments a person will make in their lifetime. Protecting this investment and ensuring any needed repairs and maintenance are taken care of ensures it will be in the best shape for as long as possible. While fixing a fridge might seem like more of an immediate priority, maintaining your roof is equally as important.
We recommend getting a free, no obligation roof evaluation once every two years to keep an eye on your roof as it ages. Nipping issues in the bud before they blossom into disastrous situations will help you protect your home. Making any necessary minor repairs to keep your roof healthy will save you ample time, money, and headaches down the road.
2. It Adds to the Value of Your Home
Even if you aren't currently looking to sell your home, a roof that's in tip-top shape adds to how much your house is worth and increases your curb appeal. For some homeowners, a leaky or old roof can be a dealbreaker as it adds costs to their foreseeable future in that house. A healthy roof, especially one that just got replaced, helps prospective buyers perceive the house as newer overall—which attracts more interest and a higher selling price, too. So even if you're not looking to move soon, making a healthy roof a priority will increase your home's current aesthetic and will put more money back in your pocket if and when you go to sell.
3. It Keeps Out the Heat and Cold
During our brutal Arizona summers and somewhat chilly winters, your roof is one of the best barriers between you and the elements. A healthy roof adds to the overall efficiency of your home by keeping the hot air out in the summers, retaining more cool air inside, and vise versa in the winter. A light colored roof is especially useful in our summers since it absorbs less heat than a dark roof. You'll be able to save money with a healthy roof working efficiently to keep your house at a comfortable temperature.
While it's easy to take for granted, a healthy roof is something that protects us every day. Whether it's keeping the elements out, or keeping our cool air inside, a healthy roof does a lot to improve the quality of our lives. If your roof needs a repair or replacement, contact us for a free, no obligation roof evaluation.
