Roof projects are never as glamorous as a kitchen or bathroom remodel, but they’re crucial to the longevity and protection of your home. And while it’s true most re-roofing or roof repair projects are expensive, there are a few upgrades that benefit the functionality and curb appeal of your roof without breaking the bank.
The exterior of a home takes the blunt of rain, wind, and deterioration faster than other elements of a home. And if you’re looking to boost the curb appeal of your house, it pays to update worn siding, old windows, and a battered roof. Not only will upgrading these features boost your home’s appeal, they will safeguard your home from future problems.
