Home Maintenance Tips with Your Sevierville Roofing Professional

We all know that New Year's resolutions are difficult to keep. Instead of just going the conventional route of choosing to lose weight or save money, why not also resolve to improve your home? With a few manageable commitments and the services of your Sevierville Roofing Contractor, you can increase your home's worth and keep it in tip-top condition all year long!

Here are some of our top New Years resolutions for your home:

1. Cut Energy

Most homes in the United States spend on average about 41% of their energy expenses on heating and cooling. For homes that are older, or that have inefficient windows and insulation that figure is even higher! One way to save energy (and cash!) is to make sure that your home has sufficient attic insulation.

"The proper amount of insulation keeps warm air inside your home during the winter and stops cold air from escaping throughthe summer", says a knowledgeable Sevierville Roofer. According to the experts at EnergyStar, homeowners can anticipate saving $200 plus per year on energy costs by having the correct amount of attic insulation.

2. Budget For Maintenance

Owning a home can be costly! One way to compensate for the cost of home repairs is to budget for them monthly. Experts recommend around 1% of your home's total value should be invested back into renovations each year. Take 1% of the total amount and divide it by 12 to get your monthly home maintenance budget figure to save for.

3. Schedule Regular Roof Inspections

Oddly enough, the roof above your head is often the last thing many people think about when it comes to home maintenance, but if you really want to keep your home protected from the elements you should keep youreyeon it. It's also one of theplaces that homeowners should not inspect themselves unless they have the proper training and knowledge to know what to look for in a safe manner.

Roofing inspections should be done at least once a year by your Sevierville Roof Repair contractor to detect potential problems and prevent costly repairs. It should also be completed after a major storm to monitor for loose or missing shingles, and storm damage.

4. InstallMaintenance Free Materials

Home maintenance is not a weekend activity that many people look forward to doing. By modernizing your home with maintenance-free products such as fiber-cement siding, LED light bulbs and ceramic tile you'll be able to save time and decrease stress. You may even be able to save money on energy expenses
