At Capitol Roofing, we know how important your home is to you and your family. After all, we are a family owned business. We ensure that every member on our team takes the time and effort to give you the safest roof possible for your home. Being in the industry for so long, we have seen it all. Here are some of our favorite lessons that we have learned by being a part of the roofing industry!
As we make our way working with many diverse communities, we have learned that loyalty among neighbors is key. Knowing that your neighbor wants the same thing that you want helps keep value in your home. The safety of the neighborhood consists of people caring for their homes and making sure that the maintenance is completed regularly. One of the most important maintenance projects to be aware of is your roof. Sometimes, people need a reminder as to why they should want their roof to be crafted with lasting quality. The roof completes the look of the home or building. Caring for your roof regularly will keep the fresh look of your home and more importantly, your neighborhood. Here are some tips that can help you remember to keep up with the maintenance of your roof.
- GET TO KNOW YOUR NEIGHBORS!
Talking to your neighbors about your home maintenance can help hold yourself
accountable since you are discussing it with someone else. You’ll soon find out that they are probably going through a lot of the same things with their homes as well.
2. MEET WITH CONTRACTORS IN YOUR COMMUNITY
Retired roofers can differentiate a good quality roof versus a bad one. Meeting one or having one as your neighbor is a great asset to the entire neighborhood. General Contractors can help since they have knowledge about all areas of construction.
3. STAY IN TOUCH WITH YOUR LOCAL ROOFING COMPANY
Most roofing companies are more than happy to make a visit to your building and offer you a free estimate or quick inspection. This is a great tool to use for your home. They would be able to show you areas where you can improve on. There are a lot of things that you can do yourself and a good Roofing Company would be more than happy to share those things with you.
4. OUR CLIENTS LOVE THEIR PETS!
During our time in roofing, we’ve met a large number of pets including dogs, cats, birds,and so on. Before starting a roofing job, we always make sure to ask about any onsite animals/pets because we make sure they are safe and sound. Taking care of your roof orother maintenance tasks for your home, means that you are also looking out for your neighbor’s pets safety. We are pretty sure you’ve seen birds or cats land on top of your roof or on your windows. I’m pretty sure your neighbors with pets will appreciate you.
5. PLANT APPRECIATION
Making sure your grass is green is probably one of the biggest flex for your community. Not only does it make you look good, it helps your entire neighborhood look good.Some cities have a water requirement due to the water shortage which makes it hard to keep your grass green. A lot of people have opted to removing their grass and decorating their front lawn with sand or rocks instead. Our team of roofing experts makes sure that they care for your lawns regardless of what you have there. A good roofing company will always take care of your entire home, not just the roof.
6. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE DETAILS
Take the time to see the little things in your home. If you are keeping up with those small details, it doesn’t become a larger problem later on. We believe that you should do this so much that we ourselves focus every day on being the best, and a big part of that is paying attention to all of the details. Improving our roofing practices is always an opportunity we want to take advantage of. When clients ask if they can watch us while we work, the answer is always yes! Most companies tend to dislike the “over the should attention”, but we actually welcome it. We love educating our customers and we love the fact that this might help them be at ease.
We hope these tips have helped you realize the importance of keeping your home in good shape. The more you pay attention to maintaining your home, the more you are taking care of your entire neighborhood. We strongly believe that this is the key to keeping the value of your home.
