The Advantages Of Metal Roofing

Roofing is an important part of your house construction or your home improvement tasks. You know that you should invest not only money but time and planning into your new roof and that some research and extra information would not hurt.

The roofing market has a lot to offer the consumer today. There are many different kinds of roofing solutions, with different materials and varying costs attached to the materials and the work.

A roofing solution that has seen an incredible increase in popularity in the last few years is metal roofing. The main reason for this shift from the more traditional materials used for roofing in the past, such as asphalt, is that metal is stronger and more durable than the products used to provide roofing for houses some years ago. The name of the game here is safety and cost effectiveness, and metal roofing has both benefits for its users.

Because of its durability the metal roof can withstand the dangers of extreme weather conditions. Rain and hail, snow and strong winds are the main concern of a homeowner as he considers the cost of his new roof. There is also the protection from fire which is as important as the protection from the elements. The level of protection that the metal roofing provides is superior to those of the traditional roofing solutions.

The other cause for the rising popularity of the metal roofing is the huge choice homeowners have in colour. The metal roof looks good, and since it is going to be used for years it is important that you like what you see. The variety of colours to choose from is huge compared to the very limited traditional roofing shingles market. This choice in color will provide your house the special look that you are looking for and will allow you to combine more daring design concepts into your new home.

The cost of metal roofing is usually higher than the cost of the more traditional roofing solutions. Experts say that this is compensated by high durability and a very low probably of any need to replace the roof in a normal lifetime. While most traditional roofs should be replaced every fifteen to twenty years, the metal roofing can last more than 50 years and serve the house and your family with pride.

Once you make up your mind and you know what kind of roof you are interested in you should look for a contractor and research the warranties issues for the roof you are about to install. Lifestyle’s lifetime metal roofing experts can guide you through the process of selecting an attractive and durable solution for your home, while also providing you with detailed information on how our steel roofing product is vastly superior to virtually any other product on the market.

Home Renovations and Resale Value!

Getting the best return on your real estate investment

By Mike Carroll
Regional Sales Manager

If you are thinking about doing some renovations around your house, even if you are not planning on selling this year, you may want to consider how they will affect the resale value of your home. Understanding the resale value will help you prioritize which project you start with as well as determine the net cost of the renovation. If you need to pay $10,000 for a project but have an expected 70% return on investment it really only costs $3,000 – not to mention any savings you may occur through energy bills or government reimbursements.

You can ask almost any real estate agent and they will tell you the importance of the first impression of your home. The term ‘curb appeal’ is used all of the time across the industry. The first impression is usually done in the first 60 seconds a potential buyer looks at the house – and lasts forever, and that first 60 seconds is usually spent outside. Rotting windows, faded doors, and failing gardens are all things that may deter a buyer from choosing your home without them even realizing it.

Numerous studies will agree that top renovations as far as resale value goes are; Entry Doors, Vinyl Siding, Vinyl Windows, and Garage Doors followed by bathroom, kitchen and basement remodeling. One may have expected kitchen and bathrooms to be at the very top, but first impressions, as well as personal preference and countless home improvement tv shows are leaving home buyers to tackle these renovations afterwards.

Over the years the top renovations for return on investments have been, for the most part, fairly consistent, with an expected increase of an additional 10% on the resale value for replacement vinyl windows and front doors for various reasons; the unpredictable and extreme weather we have been seeing, the rising energy costs and a growing interest in social and environmental responsibility that has lead buyers to demand greener homes.

If you are thinking about a home renovation project, call Lifestyle Home Products now at 1.800.465.0593 to book a free, no obligation, in-home consultation to discuss your many options and find the best project for your home. Book before June 30, and you could even WIN $2,500 towards your new home improvement project!
