Even though your roof is your houses crowning glory, it is strange how it is completely forgotten about unless something goes wrong with it. This started me thinking about how useful your roof actually is to your home; apart from keeping the elements out that is. Here I have listed some ways that people can use their roof to add value their homes and save money. Read more
When a commercial roof needs to be replaced, it would be rather understandable if the first reaction of the property owner was considerably less than positive; more precisely, their state of mind would likely be influenced by visions of cost, both direct (labour and materials for a new roof installation) and indirect (the potential for tenant inconvenience, business downtime, revenue loss, and so on).
In general, property owners are seldom if ever pleased by the prospect of extensive and expensive repair bills. Yet, instead of looking at any roof replacement primarily from the perspective of immediate costs, perhaps the need for a new roof installation should be viewed as an opportunity to invest in and add value to the property.
Yes, the initial and sometimes substantial expenditure associated with a new roof cannot be avoided, but a new roofing system that is well-designed and well-installed can deliver qualitative and quantitative returns both short-term and long-term; these will consist of:
As well, depending on the particular type of commercial property, a new roof installation offers an excellent selling feature with respect to:
Whether their plan is to retain possession of the commercial structure or sell their asset, owners can add value to a property with the installation of a new roof.

When someone utters the expression ‘a roof over your head’, the immediate inference is that they are talking about having a place to live; moreover, the first image that usually comes to mind is the shape of a peak, perhaps with a vertical chimney stack protruding from one of the two sloping sides.
Although it may go about its duties in relative obscurity, the roof it a vital component in protecting and safeguarding the occupants of any residential or commercial structures; while the property owners take the appropriate measures to ensure that their doors and windows are locked, smoke detectors have batteries that are fully charged, and electrical outlets are not overloaded, the roof quietly and effectively keeps them sheltered against the elements of nature all year long.
An effectively functioning roof is indispensable to protecting families and their personal possessions from the seasonal extremes of Toronto’s weather; in many respects, a roof acts as a shield against these elements, ensuring the family’s comfort and safety while holding at bay any high winds, rain, snow and ice, intense sun and heat, bitter cold, etc. that local residents can experience throughout any calendar year.
For those so inclined, a casual walk or drive through virtually any Toronto neighbourhood would quickly affirm that asphalt shingles are the most common type of roofing material used in residential construction. Notwithstanding the ages or styles of those homes, it is quite likely that their roofs are finished in this manner.
It would not be surprising if a significant number of homeowners could not identify which area of their home contained the fascia; some might believe that it must be somewhere on the front of the house (because the word sounds like face or facing) while others may be convinced that it is found inside the home – perhaps the front/façade of the kitchen or bathroom cabinets?

It is quite possible that a substantial percentage of Toronto homeowners have never set foot or even looked in their attic; some may actually have to reflect for a moment before they can recall where in their home they might access the attic. And because there is so little, if any, homeowner traffic in this area, it is very unlikely that they could confirm the type of attic insulation housed within.
Understandably, the exterior of a commercial property receives a considerable amount of attention with respect to its appearance; the types of materials used, colour schemes, landscaping, and signage all play important roles in generating curb appeal and inviting customers to utilize the products or services available within.
When the topic of conversation turns to roofing, a majority of homeowners could not be faulted if the discussion focused primarily on the type of roofing material (usually asphalt shingles) and the eavestroughs. In all probability, this is likely due to the fact that most people understand the functions of these roofing elements in protecting their home from water penetration and structural damage.
Homeowners looking to enhance the curb appeal of their property, and perhaps increase the value of their home, may instinctively consider such improvements as updating their doors and windows, re-landscaping the front yard, replacing the wooden garage door, or reconfiguring the steps leading to the main entrance. These are customarily the types of changes/modifications that can have an immediate visual impact on passersby and, even more importantly, on potential buyers.
