How to Tell if You May Need a New Roof
Your roof is arguably one of the most important aspects of your home, as it is the only thing protecting you, your family, and your possessions from the (sometimes harsh) Fort Walton Beach elements. Like other aspects of your house however, your roof does have a certain lifecycle and, when that is up, it is time to get it replaced. While rooves don’t come with an expiration sticker, there are a number of signs to be on the lookout for that can signify you need to get a new one.
Shingles are one of the primary indicators you can take note of, and their condition will help gauge how far along your roof is in its life. If your shingles are curled, missing granules, cracked, or missing all together, it could be time to consider a new roof.
Similarly, if you notice moss, dark streaks, sunlight coming into your attic or water leaking through your ceiling, it could be time for an inspection/change.
Even if you roof does not exhibit these symptoms, if it is 20 or more years old it is likely nearing its expiration date. Another great way to tell it is time for a new roof is if you notice all your neighbors getting their rooves replaced. If their homes were built around the same time as yours, it is likely your roof needs replacement as well.
The Benefits of Building a Custom Home
While there are many benefits that come with purchasing an existing home, prospective home buyers have leaned increasingly towards building their own custom home instead. While motives vary by the individual, building a home from scratch offers a number of incentives that appeal to most potential buyers.
Existing homes may have outdated and inefficient technology, components that are breaking down, poor insulation and much more that can contribute to a higher energy bill. When you build a new home, you can ensure that materials and technologies used contribute to energy efficiency.
Purchasing an existing home will mean you need to work with the space, wiring, and drain options that are already available, which may limit your appliance and furnishing options. Building a custom home allows you to incorporate the technical aspects you need to accommodate any appliance or furnishing.
Purchasing an old home usually means that you will be spending money on repair or upgrades down the line. When you build a custom home yourself, everything is brand new and much less prone to failure. This will save money on repairs and upgrades.
