With technology evolving at such a rapid pace, it is easy to dismiss some of the advancements being made in home maintenance as long as your home’sconditionis passable. However, you would be remiss to not invest in some of the newest home improvement technologies of the past few years.
Deck Coating Protection
An outside deck is constantly exposed to harsh weather throughout the year, and though yours may appear to be in solid condition, problems like rotting and warping can go on just below the surface that can have catastrophic and costly consequences later on. Investing in a urethane or acrylic coating for your deck is a great move to make in order to prevent these problems. They have a pleasantly glossy appearance, emit few odors or toxins, and protect the deck from the heat and cold.
While your roof may look fine, if the home is 20 years of age or older, you should consider replacement or repair work. Left unattended, an aging roof starts to crack, leaving room for moisture to get inside the house, rotting the wood underneath and creating a costly problem. Getting rid of the curled and bald shingles to replace with new ones is one of the best preventative measures you can take with regard to stopping leaks. If you have the flashings and vents waterproofed while you are at it, your roof becomes nearly impenetrable by the outside elements.
Solar Panel Installation
It may seem that solar energy panels are just a trend, but they are capable of saving homeowners huge amounts of money on their monthly energy bills. With reliable power production for two decades after installation, solar panels pay off their initial high investment in no time.
If you are ready to bring your home into the 21st century, these are great ways to start. Get in touch with a contractor and get the job started quickly.
