January marks a month of new beginnings and a time for fresh starts. We can take the chaos of the last year or two, put it in our past, and form new habits and routines that will better suit ourselves, our homes, and our lives. Most new year’s resolutions go something like this: “This year, I want to eat healthier, be more active, save more money, etc.” And these goals are great, but let’s think a little bigger.
Here are some of our new year’s habits that we’re committing to this year to live a more fruitful and enjoyable life.
Care For Your Roof
The roof of your home endures a considerable amount of stress from strong winds, rain, hail, solar rays, and debris. But it’s also one of the most crucial parts of your home; it’s the first line of defense against all of those stressors, so caring for it is incredibly important.
Unfortunately, most people neglect it, that is until something goes wrong. This leads to incredibly expensive repairs and could also cause significant water damage if it’s a rain-related event. This year, make it a priority to put your roof first. You can do so by scheduling inspections so that one of our experts can come out, survey the shingles, the flashing, the gutters, and the foundation of your roof to ensure that there are no vulnerabilities.
Suppose one of the experts does detect an issue like this during your inspection. In that case, we will provide you with a recommendation and a variety of solution options for repairing the problem and preventing it from occurring in the future.
Consider Going Solar
Did you know that the average California homeowner pays nearly $2,000 a year on electricity? It’s one of the highest rates in the nation. Luckily, there’s a way for your home to generate its own electricity without needing to take it from the power grid. The solution here is solar panels.
More and more homeowners across California, the nation, and the world are electing to go solar. Some of the top reasons for this decision are the positive environmental impact, the value added to the home, and most commonly, the immense electricity savings.
Alongside their efficiency, solar panels also have a reputation for being expensive to purchase and install, which is true. However, the cost is worth the earnings down the line. According to recent research by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, there’s a $20 value-added for $1 spent on your solar panel system. On top of this, there are also a variety of tax credits and financial incentives offered by both the state and federal governments, but make sure to take advantage of those soon because they will phase out eventually.
And if you need a new roof at the same time that you’re looking to install solar panels, we have the perfect option for you - introducing the SolaRoof Program. With SolaRoof, we will build and install a brand new integrated roof and solar system. The best part is that the reduction in your electricity bill will help offset your roof loan cost.
By bringing more attention to your home’s roof, exterior, and utilities now, you’ll be able to free up resources and money in the future.
