Improve Your Kitchen to Help Sell Your Home

My husband and I recently put our home onto the market, because we were expecting a baby and need to upgrade to something larger. When offers rolled in that were really low, we decided to ask our realtor why people thought the house was worth so much less than it was. He was honest and told us that he had heard our kitchen was a bit of an eyesore. He was right, but I had actually put off renovations because I knew we were looking to sell the home soon. We took the gamble and renovated our kitchen. It paid off! We received an offer that was near our asking price, and it made the kitchen renovations well worth it! I created this blog to help others struggling to sell their homes realize that a few small improvements can help you finally sell your home!

Green Roofing: What Choices Do You Have?

Green roofing is something that many home owners are transitioning to in order to protect the environment and save some money. With the rise in energy prices, more and more people are finding green roofing choices right for them. Naturally, it is important to make sure you transition to a green roofing material that is right for you. In order to do that, you need to know more about your options. A few options you can consider include solar shingles, metal roofing, and cedar roofing.

Solar Shingles

Solar shingles allow the owner to cover their roof with a way to run their home. Each solar shingle produces anywhere between 50 and 200 watts of energy, depending on the size of the shingle. This is a quick and easy way to save money and decrease the carbon footprint your home is leaving on the environment.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is a durable, long lasting choice to go with for the roof on your home. Depending on the material, some metal roofs can last anywhere from 20 to 70 years. Compare this to a traditional asphalt roof that only has a life expectancy of up to 20 years. You never have to worry about the roof igniting during a lightning storm; and it can reduce the cost of cooling your home by anywhere from 10 to 25 percent. Should you ever have the metal roofing removed and replaced, you can even rest easy knowing it is 100 percent recyclable.

Cedar Roofing

Cedar roofing is a great choice if you are looking for a more natural roof. It will protect your home against natural elements the same way it protected animals when it stood in the forest as a strong cedar tree. The biggest downside to a cedar roof is its need to be restored every handful of years. Just like metal roofing, cedar roofing can also be recycled and turned into something else once it has been removed from your home.

As you can see, there are a plethora of different green friendly roofing materials for you to choose from, and you can look at the pros and cons of each material and make a decision. Regardless of if you choose solar, metal, or cedar, you can be proud of the eco-friendly decision you have made. Contact a professional roofer for more information on choosing the green roofing option best for you.
