Is Your Home a Castle?
It was Lord Coke, an English nobleman, who famously said, “A man’s home is his castle.” Lord Coke’s meaning was that every homeowner had the right to enjoy the safety and comforts of royalty, even if he lived in a humble cottage.
So how is your castle looking these days? In need of sprucing up in places? Does it still provide the protection and security that it should? Is its value holding up in the current real estate market?
There are many reasons to maintain your “castle.” The most important is to provide a safe, comfortable place for your family. But your home is also your biggest financial investment. Without proper maintenance the value of that investment will shrink.
That’s why I sometimes say that our company is in the business of protection. The work we do protects families from the weather with tight, secure roofs, siding, doors and windows. We also protect the homeowner’s investment by helping to maintain – or even increase – the value of the property.
Take your home’s roof, for example. You probably don’t give it much thought at all, and you should not have to. A solidly built roof provides many years of service, keeping rain, sun, hail, snow and wind outside where they belong. It is only when something bad occurs – a leak, damage from a storm – that you look up and worry about your roof.
Yet even roofs get old and tired and require a little care and maintenance. If your home’s roof is more than 10 years old, do yourself a favor and call us at (703-820-3077) to come out and inspect it. Unlike some contractors, we’ll go to the effort of getting right up on the roof to conduct a thorough inspection of the shingles or tiles, flashing, vents, gutters – all the parts that make up the entire roofing system. Then we’ll provide you with a complete report on the actual condition of your roof.
There is no charge for this service. We just want to make sure our neighbors are safe and secure. If, in the future, your roof does require repairs or replacement, I hope you’ll remember that we provided this service and call on us to do the work.
