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!

Information To Help You Choose The Right Metal Roof Style For Your Home

For many, the idea of a metal roof is a thin tin roof, such as those seen on inexpensive sheds. Fortunately, metal roofing has come a long way and there are many more durable and attractive options available. Even better, metal roofing is long-lasting and durable, and requires very little maintenance once it is installed. Learn about the benefits of the different designs and types of metal roofs to you can make a decision on your next roof.

Panel Roofing

Panel roofing may be the most common style. It consists of panels with vertical seams at regular intervals. The seams are raised where each panel locks together, which has earned panel roofing the nickname "standing seam" roofing. This style of roofing is one of the least expensive options compared to other metal roof types. It is readily available in nearly any color you desire, since the panels can be painted in custom tints.

Metal panels work especially well if you live in an area with heavy snowfall, since the smooth panels combined with a proper pitch causes snow to simply slide off. This design also works well with rainwater collection systems. Panels aren't for every home, though. Their simplicity looks best on wood and masonry homes with a decided mountain look, or on some modern home designs.

Metal Shingles

Shingles are an option that can work well with any home design, because you can find the shingles in any design desired. There are those that resemble traditional asphalt shingles, those that emulate wood shakes, and those that look like tile roofing. Metal shingles that resemble Spanish roof tiles are especially attractive on stucco homes, while those that look like wood shake are an attractive option for homes built in the arts and crafts style of the 1920s and 30s.

Metal shingles cost more than panels, in part due to their design and also because they take longer to install. Each shingle is made of specially formed metal. It then has a topcoat applied to make it resemble the type of shingle it is emulating, such as a gravel textured coat for asphalt. The main drawback is that single shingles can come loose, resulting in leaks, since they aren't solid panels.
