Adding Curb Appeal with a New Roof!

What is Curb Appeal?

Wikepedia defines curb appeal as “An attractiveness of the exterior of a residential or commercial property, as viewed from the street.“ As a roofing company, curb appeal is our business. Call us biased, but nothing is more attractive to us on a house than a beautiful roof. Yes Yes, the rest of the house is important too, but expertly install an architectural 50 year shingle on that house, and we are happy! But recognizing that our love for roofs isn’t necessarily shared with the rest of the general population, here are some other tips to add curb appeal to your home pulled from our pinterest page (have you followed us yet?)

DIY Projects

Curb Appeal IdeasDisplaying your house numbers in a creative way is a relatively easy way to add some curb appeal. There are many ways to execute this concept, that you can do yourself! Again, are you following us on Pinterest yet?

Can we talk about the roof now?

Yay! This is our favorite part! As you know, the attractiveness of your home determines its curb appeal. There are many ways to achieve this, from an easy weekend diy project, to a major overhaul, such as new windows, a fresh coat of paint, or re-designing your landscaping. But overlooking the roof can be a huge mistake. This doesn’t necessarily mean a full roof replacement. If your roof is relatively new, getting up there and cleaning off debris, and checking for loose shingles (and having them professionally repaired) may be all you need to refresh the look of your home. But if your roof is getting up there in age, or you are looking to upgrade to a different look, here are some roofing systems to consider

Architectural Asphalt Shingles:

Roofs installed by Chase Construction NW, Inc.A heavyweight architectural shingle will not only add that much desired curb appeal, but it can even add value to your home! With multiple color choices to fit any personality, these shingles also boast a “dimensional look” that add even more visual appeal to the roof. A couple systems that we work with (and our most popular choices) are the IKO Cambridge Architectural Roofing Shingles, and the GAF Timberline HD shingles. Both systems come with warranties that will make you comfortable about the investment, and if we install your roof system, you will even have access to exclusive warranties!

 

Metal Roof:

Metal Roofs installed by Chase Construction NW, Inc.Metal is becoming more and more popular as a residential roofing system. But why metal? A standing seam metal panel roof such as NuRay roofing products can save you up to 40% of energy costs compared to asphalt shingles. Just like asphalt shingles, it will add re-sell value to your home, but it lasts 4 times longer! Edco has a line of steel shingles that resemble shake! “The next generation of metal roofing” is becoming a popular choice for residential homes as well. Coming in blended, HD imaging, multi-tone colors, you can achieve a soft, weathered look with a steel “cedar” shake that won’t fade or diminish. EDCO Generations roofing will not warp, split, peel, or crack and defies winds up to 160 mph. Metal is also virtually maintenance free!
