If your home is 15 years or older, features that were once “standard” are now turn-offs for potential buyers. If you’re thinking about listing your home, that’s probably not the best news. After all, no homeowner wants to hear their home is “outdated,” or the sale price should be lowered.

The good news is making small improvements to your home will not only entice new home buyers, but some projects can increase your home’s value!

So, if you are worried about curb appeal, thinking about selling your home, or interested in maximizing home value, this post is for you!

Selling a home is stressful even when everything goes right. There is A LOT of time, energy, paperwork, and emotions that go into it, and even small complications can feel like massive burdens.

So, when homeowners ask us if they should get a roof inspection before they list their home, our answer is always yes!

Have you ever heard the saying, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”? This is true for many things that require maintenance, to perform best like your health, your car, and your home. But this is especially true when it comes to your roof! If you’re like most homeowners, you’re probably thinking, “there’s not a hole in mine, so what’s the big deal?”

You may be surprised to learn that your roof could have problems, even if it’s not leaking right now.

Imagine if you never changed the oil in your car… how would it run? What about your home’s AC unit – would it continue to work well in the summer if you never changed its filter?    
The roof of your home is just like most systems: it requires routine maintenance to provide the best protection.

But most homeowners don’t perform regular maintenance tasks. Even worse, many don’t get seasonal roof inspections. All too often, homeowners will call us because their roof is leaking and are shocked that the damage (and repair bill!) could have been prevented.

How can costly roof leaks be avoided? It's simple: get regular roof inspections and keep an eye out for damage. Here are five tips to help you do that!

Peanut butter and jelly. Macaroni and cheese. 4th of July and fireworks. Some things are just meant to go together! But without the right precautions, accidental fires and damage to your roof can occur when fireworks are used. 

What’s so exciting about National Insurance Awareness Day?

Celebrating it could save you money.

Summer is officially here!

That means family vacations, time spent outside, and… rising energy bills if your roof is not in good shape. That last one isn't fun (trust us), and the best way to make sure your home stays cool and comfortable all summer long is to schedule a roof inspection now.

… And here’s why.

What is National Roofing Week?

National Roofing Week is organized by NRCA and takes place every June. Its purpose is to

  • Increase awareness across the U.S. about the significance of roofs to every home and business
  • Share the good deeds of the industry
  • Promote the importance of hiring a professional roofing contractor, like Haynes Construction
  • Help homeowners make informed decisions about maintaining or replacing their home’s roof

A roof is one of the most critical components of a home or business' structure, yet it is often taken for granted until it falls into disrepair.

Waiting to fix roof damage often leads to costly repairs!
