Remodeling work is among the most popular home improvement projects in 2015, according to HomeAdvisor. In their recently published April 2016 True Cost Report, they explained that homeowners are most likely to reap the highest returns from remodeling. Consider getting started on these projects this year:
1. New siding. Replacing this important component is something that can be done on short notice. While working on your roofing in St Louis, MO, will take time, a siding project will not interrupt your daily home activities. Let our team look for signs of wear on a quick inspection: rot, warping, cracks, peeling or bubbling paint, and the occasional fungal growth.
2. Window replacement. If you have decades-old windows and experiencing high energy bills, there’s a good chance your windows are the culprit. According to the US Department of Energy, about 30% of a home’s energy consumption could be lost through doors and windows not optimized for energy efficiency. Apart from being the top roofing company in St Louis, MO, Howard Roofing also installs energy-efficient replacement windows. All of our window installations have Low-E glass which blocks UV and infrared rays without blocking natural light in. It also has superior insulation properties to keep you comfortable. This means less work for your HVAC system, which in turn means more savings on your energy bills.
3. Roof maintenance. Your roof is the most exposed part of your home, so maintenance should always be a priority. If you haven’t had a roof maintenance appointment in the last two years, chances are you’d notice the signs. They include asphalt granules in the runoff; missing, loose or damaged shingles; water stains on the ceiling; and even increase in the energy bills. If you see more than one of these signs, consult our team of roofers in St Louis, MO, to determine if you simply need a repair or replacement.
