29 Apr: Understanding The Cost Of A New Roof?

 

Are your roof shingles looking shabby? Installing a new roof is a home improvement project many homeowners eventually face. How much to expect in cost for a new roof depends on several factors, and you can plug in the details of your situation and estimate an approximate new roof cost by considering the points described below.

Roofing Material Affects New Roof Cost

25 Oct: Winter Is Coming. Got Gutters? Gutters Raleigh NC (Demo)

Gutters often go neglected. Gutters and downspouts are components of storm water drainage systems, and because it doesn’t always rain, it is easy to overlook the condition of this system until you really need it.

Gutters, downspouts, and related storm water drainage components do more than move rain water around. They also help in the maintenance of your home in several ways, and when they need repair or replacement, problems can develop in other parts of the house.

Neglected Gutters Lead to Peeling Paint

Water stains are another common problem when gutters are missing or broken. Staining can also be a problem with paint-free sidings, such as vinyl siding. Rainwater from

15 Sep: Prolonging the Life of Your Home’s Siding 

Siding material covers the outside of your house, protecting the interior and you from the elements outside. Taking steps to prolong the life of your home’s siding saves you money in the long run, and it also keeps your home more comfortable and secure.

14 Jul: Roofing Scams Don’t Fall for Them

Among honest, credible roofers lurk contractors who are con artists. They smoothly prey upon unsuspecting homeowners, armed with slick roofing scams. In these crooks’ wake are victims who are left with shoddy construction and depleted bank accounts. Tragically, homeowners may not realize they’ve been swindled until their roof comes apart or caves in.

According to HomeAdvisor, approximately 20,000 to 100,000 scammers per year attempt to defraud homeowners. In 2001 alone, consumer protection agencies recovered nearly $147 million from contractor scams in 22 states. Rain-Go Exteriors of Raleigh, North Carolina are reputable, ethical, experienced roofers who pride themselves on their integrity.
