5 Reasons to be Thankful for Your Roof
November 21, 2016 at 9:21 AM
We’re feeling thankful at H&S Roofing and Gutter Company! Maybe it’s just this time of year, but we’re really grateful for our wonderful, loyal customers, and this incredible city we call home. You know what else we’re thankful for? Our roofs!
You should be, too. Here are five reasons to be thankful for an efficient, functioning roof:
1. It keeps your home dry
Well, obviously! A working roof does one thing really well, and that’s keeping the inside of your home dry. Not only is your roof keeping rain from dripping in by the bucket, it’s actually keeping less-perceptible moisture from building in your attic space that can lead to mold and rot.
2. It keeps you cold/warm
Roofs work in tandem with your HVAC system to properly vent and insulate your home. In the summer when it’s balmy, you can thank your roof for letting out the rising heat. When it’s cold, your roof is responsible for keeping all that toasty heat in.
3. It keeps critters out
Together, your roof and gutters keep all kinds of creepy crawlies out of your home. From birds to rodents to insects, a well-sealed roof ensures your house doesn’t become a safe haven for Mother Nature’s peskiest pests.
4. It improves your home value
A new roof is, statistically, one of the best investments you can make in your home if you’re eventually planning to sell. An energy efficient roof constructed with guaranteed materials improves the value of your house and will likely make it easier to sell!
5. It’s a symbol of your good fortune
Did you know that December 3rd is “National Roof Over Your Head Day?” In a season of thankfulness, it’s important to remember all the things we have to be grateful for, and our roofs are a simple, but profound, measure of our luckiness! There’s even a hashtag for the holiday: #roofoveryourheadday
We all have a lot of things to be thankful for! If you haven’t taken a look around lately to observe all the ways we’re luckier here in America (and, particularly, in Charlotte!) than many people in the world, it’s time. At H&S Roofing and Gutter Company, we think it’s important to recognize what there is to be thankful for, starting with your own roof!
