Okay, so you might be wondering, “Why should I care about roofs?” Well, hear us out—roofs are pretty cool, and here’s why you, as a homeowner or anyone else, should know some nifty stuff about them.
People often think metal roofs attract lightning, but that’s not true! In fact, metal roofs can actually protect your home because they don’t catch fire easily.
You know those “flat” roofs? They’re not completely flat; they have a slight slope that helps water run off. No puddles up there!
If your roof is a bit wonky, selling your home might be trickier. You don’t always need a whole new roof, but be ready for lower offers or even losing a sale if your roof needs some TLC.
Metal roofs aren’t just tough; they’re smart with energy. They reflect heat away, saving you around 40% on energy bills. Nice on your wallet and the planet!x
A well-cared-for roof can last longer than you live in your house. We’re here to help you take good care of it with repairs and maintenance.
Shingles come in different colors. Light ones keep your home cool in hot places, while dark ones soak up heat, perfect for chilly spots.
Guess what? Shingles can be recycled! That means old roofs can have a new purpose, which is great for the environment.
Those spinny vents on your roof? Don’t cover them, even in winter. They help your attic stay comfy and stop mold and pests from setting up shop.
In a nutshell, roofs are more than just covers for our homes. They affect safety, bills, and how much you get for your place. Stay in the know, and if you ever need help with your roof, we’ve got your back at Forever Slate!
