Spring is here, summer is just a few days away, and the housing market has already been ramping up for a few months. If you are putting your house on the market this season, or you are thinking about doing so in the next few years, you might be wondering if it’s worth it to replace things like your roof, your windows, and your doors before you sell.
It’s that time of year in Michigan when we’ve suddenly gone from winter to summer. Just a few weeks ago, we were wondering if the snow would ever end. Now, we’re already bemoaning the high heat and humidity.
It’s National Roofing Week! Did you know there is a whole week to highlight and celebrate the importance of roofs and professional roofing contractors in our country? Well, there is.
While it’s always the best option to plan ahead and save the money you know you will need to replace your roof, we understand that you may need one right away. However, some people don’t have that kind of cash saved up. It is an important, and often, expensive job.

New roofs aren’t cheap. However, they are one of the most vital parts of your home. So, while you know you need a new roof, it’s often a frustrating expense.
How do you get the best deal on a new roof?
The warm weather is finally returning here in Michigan. That means you can go ahead with those plans to replace your roof!
Now that the danger of snow has passed, replacing your roof should be straightforward and shouldn’t take more than two or three days. However, it is an intense few days as roofers are tearing, throwing, hauling, and then laying and nailing. Your home will become a temporary work zone better suited for men in hard hats than for kids and pets.
Even though we strive to make your home roof replacement as quick and as hazard-free as possible, there are preparations you can make on your end to make things go smoothly for your family, or even just yourself.
Spring is finally here in Michigan! It was an unusually long and cold winter this year with very few breaks in the subzero temperatures. I’m sure some of you out there are shaking your heads, wondering how in the world your energy costs could have been so large.

Homeowners always want to know, and rightfully so, what things they can do to improve the value of their homes. There are certain things you do for your home exterior for yourself, and there are things you do to make sure you can sell the house again.
Then there are the things you have to do as routine maintenance. These things don’t add value to the home. However, they do have to be done to ensure your home works the way it’s supposed to work.
Roofing needs aren’t elective remodeling choices. Usually, when you replace your roof, it’s an essential job. It needs to be done – because the roof over your head isn’t just an expression. Your roof protects your entire home or business and your family: your investments.
However, the big bill that comes with replacing a roof is not something everyone looks forward to. It’s also a large project. Just think about it. It covers the entire square foot area of your house!
We never suggest that anyone should try to repair or replace a roof themselves. Most people don’t even want to try. As a result, for most home and business owners, a professional roofing company is a must.
But how should you go about choosing? Is there an insider tip for choosing the right roofing contractor?
Near the end of winter, I always get the urge to deep clean everything. The inside of the house just seems stagnant from my family being cooped up indoors all winter long. In addition, everything outside is muddy and coated with a layer of grime.
In Michigan, and much of the Midwest, it doesn’t seem like winter weather is leaving any time soon. However, very soon it will be time to eye the exterior of your house and spruce things up for the year.
