Invest in What Matters Most: Structural Investments to Add Value & Protection During Challenging Times

Whether you’ve owned your home for years and years, or you just purchased a charming older build, you might be wondering what updates you need to make sure your investment is sound. Not only do building codes and regulations change over the years, but the conditions the home has weathered could mean it’s not as strong as it once was. What are some areas to keep in mind? Keep reading to find out!

Your Roof

Because your roof is your home’s first line of defense against the elements, it only has a lifespan of about 10-15 years depending on the region. Here on the East Coast, our roofs experience violent, hurricane-force winds almost every year which means you could be looking at replacement much sooner than that.

A compromised roof that goes without repair or replacement, won’t be able to protect your home anymore. The most typical consequence is a roof leak, which will allow water into your ceiling and walls. If the wood starts to rot, you could be on the line for serious and costly repairs. If you’re not sure how old your roof is or you don’t know how many storms it has weathered, it’s a good idea to get a roof inspection.

Replacing your roof will allow you to…

  1. Upgrade to new, sturdier materials now available

  2. Check and fix any weaknesses or leaks

  3. Improve your insulation for better energy efficiency

  4. Elevate your curb appeal

  5. Increase the value of your home

Windows & Doors

Windows and doors are very important for the overall appearance of your home. Replacing your old windows and doors can improve your curb appeal and let more light into your home. But even if you like the way they look, there could be underlying issues that are impacting your home value.

One of the biggest problems with windows and doors is a faulty installation. If you have high-quality windows that were measured and installed wrong, you could still be letting out your nice AC and letting in water, dust, and critters. A window frame that doesn’t fit could also be hurting the structural integrity of your home.

Upgrading your windows and doors to strong, energy-efficient models could lower your electric bills, improve the security of your home, protect the structural integrity of your home, and even reduce your homeowner’s insurance quote!


Making upgrades to your home is no easy decision, but it can protect your investment and make sure it’s around to protect your family for years to come. Replacing your roofwindows, and doors is one way to make sure your home is structurally sound, safe, and won’t need costly repairs in the near future. Not sure how to proceed?

Don’t Wait Until Summer to Replace Your Windows! Why Spring Is the Most Cost-Effective Season for Window Installations

The windows of your home are one of the most useful and important features. Windows are an important component of your home’s exterior and interior aesthetic appeal. Great windows offer views of the outdoors, open up the home with natural light, and circulate clean air into the home.

However, windows don’t last forever. Old and worn-out windows in need of replacement can work against the flow of your home, decreasing its aesthetic appeal, limiting energy-efficiency and performance, and costing you more money to heat and cool your home.

If your windows are in need of replacement, waiting until the weather gets warmer isn’t always the best decision. While the summer season has its own set of benefits, many homeowners find that spring is one of the best times of the year for completing all kinds of home improvement projects—window replacement included. In fact, having them installed over the spring months can save you plenty of time and money when compared to getting them done in the high season.
