For some time now, you may have been noticing, and perhaps even ignoring signs that your roof is in disrepair and needs to be replaced. Whether or not to replace your roof can be a big decision, and admittedly, it can also be a costly one. Don’t let new roof costs keep you from upgrading. Think of it as an investment – one that will pay for itself in the long term and give you a good return on your investment. Continually repairing your roof can add up, and in the end, you may still need to replace your roof.
Let’s start with roof repair and the cost. How much money have you already spent, trying to save your roof with one fix after another? Of course, there are times when repairing the roof makes sense. But if your roof is over 20 years old, it may be time for a new roof. Here are some benefits of replacing the roof:
Boost Home Value – A new roof will add value to your home, which in turn, will make your home easier to sell. Having an old, damaged roof with missing shingles or curled shingles, for example, could deter some potential buyers from moving forward.
Aesthetics/Curb Appeal – A new roof is one of the first things people notice, and curb appeal plays a significant role in the overall look of your home. A new roof looks great and will add to your curb appeal, further boosting your home’s value.
Opportunity for Roofing Enhancements – If you’ve always wanted windows or skylights in your roof, now is the time to make that happen.
Cost Effective – Replacing your roof allows your HVAC system to work better, saving you money.
Less Anxiety & Stress – You’ll be able to sleep better at night, not having to worry about a problematic roof.
Improved Energy Efficiency – More people are now switching to green roofing or roofs made from energy-efficient materials, which can also save you money. We offer green roofing systems in Boca Raton and make sure that your green roof is both root-repellant and waterproof.

Walls are one of the most important parts of a home’s structure. They keep you and your family safe, give you privacy, and can be decorated to bring aesthetic to the home, making it more pleasing to the eye. A well-protected and well-decorated wall will definitely have its perks.
One great way of protecting your walls, while giving them a very sleek and beautiful finish, would be by siding installations. Sidings are attachments that can be added to the walls of your home. There are many choices of materials for siding. Depending on what look and design you are going for, you can accomplish anything.
If you want to transform your home into a safer and more beautiful space, then start by installing sidings to your walls. Here are 4 transformations your home can have if you choose to install sidings
If you live in an area that receives a lot of rain every year, then this type of siding material is for you. These sidings will help keep your walls well-protected against the elements and will definitely keep them safe from weather damage.
Weather-resistant sidings are very diverse. It’s usually the material of the siding that keeps it weather resistant, but sometimes the design or the make of the siding will help do the job. An example would be some types of water-resistant sidings. These are usually constructed with materials that repel water. It could also be designed to allow water to slide harmlessly downwards (like having overlapping boards, with the upper ones going over the bottom boards) and pose a very low risk of water damage to your walls.
Fire-resistant sidings are especially useful in hot areas that receive very little rain, and in homes that have wooden walls. Who wouldn’t want a building with walls that can withstand fire?
These sidings are made of materials that do not catch fire easily – made with cement-like finishes or fire retarding chemicals that can be coated on your home’s walls to prevent a fire from catching. There are a number of options for fire-resistant siding. It would be best to consult with a roofing expert to learn more about what the best match would be for your specific home’s walls.
Your walls are designed to help keep your home warm. This is where insulated sidings shine. These sidings can help insulate heat inside your home which can help you save on heater use. While still needing to have heaters on, homes in cold areas with insulated sidings will definitely not need the heaters on 24/7.
Sidings deliver the best of both worlds – beauty and functionality. There are many types of sidings that are beautifully crafted while still being weather or fire-resistant. Do you like the look of wooden walls but scared that it might catch fire? There are types of sidings with a beautiful wooden finish but constructed with fire-resistant materials.

The holidays are just around the corner. Cookies, eggnog, and outdoor decorative lights are all part of year-end festivities. This coming holiday, dazzle your neighborhood with an incredible display of lights and colors. Here are a few tips for hanging holiday outdoor lights.
Before you head to the store to purchase outdoor lights, do a visual inspection of your yard and make a plan. Where do you intend to hang outdoor lights? Estimate how many light strings and bulbs you will need. Look for strands with bulbs that are spaced 6 to 8 inches apart – longer distances create shadows and a warmer glow across a wider area. For trees and bushes, a good estimate would be 100 lights for every 1.5 feet of greenery.
Do you want your house to be the star attraction of your street? Go all out with two sets of string lights with bulbs that are spaced closer together. Lights that are packed tightly shine brighter than those that are placed apart.
We recommend using LED lights because they are more energy efficient than incandescent bulbs. They are also less prone to overheating.
Not all white lights are equal. There are three kinds of white LEDs.
Warm white strands are ideal for gutters and eaves while polar white lights complement your landscape. Pure white bulbs are too bright and formal for décor so try to avoid them.
While an all-white theme is still the most popular, colors are now trendy, particularly the reds, blues and greens.
Multicolored strands look beautiful along the gutter, with clustered string icicle lights hanging from the eaves. Colored C9 bulbs are best for outlining the roof edge while smaller C7s highlight the perimeter of windows. Wrap mini lights around your mailbox or garden accents. Lay a blanket of net lights over shrubs and bushes.
Pick a focal point – perhaps a column or entryway at the center – and work your way out to the sides. Without a focal point, your outdoor lights will look like they are all over the place.
Measure all straight lines to estimate how many light strings you’ll need and how far the strand will run from an electrical power source. Check the construction of your gutters and shingles to determine the best lights to hang along the roofline.
Outdoor holiday lights are perfect for decorating the following areas:
Once you have decided on the number of lights, color type, and decor layout, it is time to hang those outdoor holiday lights.
Whether you are using outdoor lights from last year or straight from the store, you should inspect all wiring. Check for frayed or damaged cables, exposed copper, and broken sockets. If the wires are brittle, throw them away. Only use extension cords that are designed for outdoor use and carry the UL safety logo.
Faulty wiring will not only ruin your lighting design but could burn down your house.
Do not connect more than five or six light strands together to avoid overloading the circuit. Do not stretch the strands to reach an electrical outlet. Lawn lights should be placed away from ground water.
Most outlets are able to support 15 amps. Try to maintain a load that is half of that even if you are using LED lights.
Moisture seeping into the connectors can blow a fuse. Seal your connections with electrical tape to keep them dry.
When installing lights on the roof, make sure your ladder is on a flat and solid surface. If the roof is too high or too steep, hire a professional instead.
There is no need to wake up in the middle of the night to turn off your holiday lights. You can now connect your entire lighting system to a timer so it turns on and off automatically. Some timers are built with sensors to detect light – they automatically turn on when it goes dark outside.
Finally, test your work and see if everything lights up according to plan.
