Roofing comes in many different forms like shingles, shake, slate, tile and flat or raised metal and each can come in different shapes, sizes, and materials such as asphalt, wood, slate, clay, steel and composites and also many colors
This is the most commonly used and least expensive roof covering material. Asphalt roofing materials consist of a fiber mat or a fiberglass mat impregnated with asphalt and covered with colored sand like mineral granules. A wide variety of designs, weights, colors and sizes are available. Designer shingle is becoming more common today replacing the standard 3 tab. Generally a good asphalt shingle will last for about 30 years. When asphalt Shingles start to curl or cup and the sand like granules ware off it is time to reroof or replace them
Wood and/or shake roofing:
Shingles made of different wood like cedar, cypress or red wood are highly resistant to rot and may last 30 to 35 years if properly maintained. The best wood roofing materials are pressure-treated with wood preservatives. When considering home safety, it is wise to note that wood shingles and shakes are more highly combustible than the other roofing materials available. If a wood shingle is your choice, look for one treated with fire-retardant chemicals. As wood ages they will shrink and form gaps. They may also become brittle and be less protective from the elements. When only a some wooden show wear and tear you can replace the individual shingles without doing the entire roof
Metal roofs are highly resistant to ware and damage from the elements and will frequently last up ward of 40 years or more. They are highly fire resistant and require very little maintenance. Damaged areas can be repaired with patches of similar metal. The materials used in a metal roof may include copper, tin, steel, aluminum, or an alloy combination of one or more of these metals.
Tile, Slate and Composite Roofing:
Tile, slate or composed of either clay or concrete are the longest lasting roofing materials available. Often the will last more than 50 or more years and require little or no maintenance. These materials are very fire resistant. When one of these roofs does need replacement, however, the cost will be very high. Tiles are comparable to slate in benefit but come in a more shapes variety of colors, textures and sizes. Tiles can be color glazed or natural while slate usually comes in natural black, grey or a dark red
Home improvements or repairs can improve the curb appeal and value of your home like new siding. House siding materials have changed over the years and include:
ཉ Wood siding
ཉ Asbestos siding
ཉ Cement fiber
Today asbestos siding is not used any more and wood, aluminum, steel and fiberglass siding have been mostly replaced with the more modern house siding like vinyl, cement fiber and composites.
Aluminum is still the most widely trim material because of it’s ability to be shaped the existing trim boards. Aluminum is a recyclable product so it dose not have a great impact on our environment.
We see composite trim boards in lieu of wood in the future as the price comes down enough that new home builders start using it to replace the wood trim now used. Composite is recyclable and will save a lot of trees when it replaces wood.
I’m not an advocate of cement fiber because the seams need to be spaced for expansion and chalked to keep the elements from deterioration. If you have cement board we recommend that you inspect the seams at least once a year to determine weather they need to be sealed again.
Brick and stone are great products but because of the cost are used widely in combination of other products such as vinyl siding. Neither brick nor stone have an adverse effect on our environment
Vinyl siding also seems to be an excellent product. The cost is lower and it’s very easy to maintain. Although vinyl siding is petroleum based it is a recyclable product so it dose not have a great impact on our environment.
Improving the exterior of your home helps to improve your neighborhood, gives your home curb appeal and make you feel good about yourself
To start with you should have a good idea of what you want to spend and accomplish such as we need 2 more bedroom and a full bathroom or we want 2 bedrooms, a full bathroom and a master bedroom with walk in closet and full bathroom with a tub and a separate shower. You get the idea
Once you have at least a tentative budget and an idea of what you want to accomplish then it time to look for a good builder/contractor and get some bids.
Most knowledgeable builder will give you a free estimate without having to invest in plans up front.
If you do hire an independent architect you can plan on spending many time more then if you go through your builder and it’s not only the money you spend but you may fine them not up to snuff for the city and your builder may refuse to use them witch leaves you shopping for a builder to fit your plan
Take your time finding a builder. A great way to find a builder is by talking to other people that have had the experience. You can also look to the Internet, the Better Business Bureau Pages or the yellow pages
You’ll find that a good builder want to know that you and they are compatible and they aren’t just trying to write up the job and get your deposit, as some sales persons may do.
Pick a builder not only by price but also by their experience and referrals. Make sure it’s someone you trust. If you have doubts go on to some one else.
Never pull the permits for a job someone else is going to do this will make you liable for the job and leave them without any liability whatsoever
Once you’ve hired a builder have faith in him. Don’t be afraid to ask questions as the project goes along.
This is a large undertaking but do not let it overwhelm you to your builder it fairly simple. Be prepared for the interior to take sometime, as there are many steps and inspections and the finishing touches are what make the project a work of art and pride.
We hope you have a great experience with your home improvement and we always wish you the best
Your home may be the most sound investment you make in your life time not only in monetary terms but also in family security
