Your roof can make up more than half of your homes exterior, so it should complement your home's style and exterior color scheme. As you browse through your many shingle choices, think about how the look of your new roof could improve the upon the roof you have now.
Should you choose a different color?
Consider the look of your home's exterior. A new color could bring your whole look together.
The color of the roof should coordinate with all your exterior elements: paint, siding, brick, or stone etc.
Do you need more dimension?
If your home is monochromatic think about adding shingles that appear thicker or give your roof a rich textured look.
Homes that already have detailed exteriors a muted softer shingle may be more appropriate. There are so many varieties of roofing shingles that carry unique combinations to really help add to the curb appeal of your home. Over the next few blogs Midwest Roofing is going to talk about a number of Shingle products that are beautiful and designed to protect you home. In the days and weeks to come we will be highlighting a few of these shingle options and talking about the durability and luxury of a few of these outstanding products we offer here at Midwest Roofing Services.
Spring time is here! It is time to clean out those gutters and get protection on them. Why you might ask? Because, uncovered gutters can cause a number of problems. For example:
Backed up water from clogged gutters can make its way through your roof and cause cracking and leaking in you home.
Rotten fascia and soffit are also common problems caused by clogged gutters.
Over flowing gutters that do not drain properly allow the ground to become soaked and weaken possibly causing cracks in foundation.
Difficulty cleaning gutters contribute to over 700,000 accidents from falling each year.
Midwest Roofing Services offers several different types of gutter protection. One type of gutter protection is a pliable gutter filtration. This type of gutter protection fills the entire gutter opening so that nothing but water can get in. When installed this product allows rainwater to pass easily through the filter material and quickly flow to the downspout. Leaves, pine needles, twigs, and other debris stay on top but does not impede the flow of water. Air flows both under and over the debris so it dries quickly and blows away on the next breezy day. The filter material is invisible from the ground so no need to match gutter colors. The filtering material washes clean with every rainfall and is tough, absorbent and dries quickly.
Another option is a screen type gutter protection that handles large amounts of rainfall and keeps debris from ever entering the gutter. It is installed directly to the gutter lip so it does not move or shift over time. This type of guttering provides a clean and virtually invisible installation and it does more that just keep your gutter clean, it can help strengthen the gutter while providing superior water dispersion.
We have a number of different types of gutter covers that also can be matched to your gutter as well. So feel free to ask one of our professionals for what will better serve your gutter needs.
