Summer Home Renovations: Roof Remodeling
We’re going to start at the top of the list! Literally. Roofing is always an important summer project, largely because having a functional roofing system is so vital in the colder months. There is potential for ice dams, irregular temperatures in your attic, and increased crack and mold opportunities. Plus, it’s just harder to perform the job in the winter with slick and freezing conditions.
ROI: With a GAF Roofing System, you can recoup 64.8% of your investment in resale value by having a certified GAF Master Elite factory-direct certified installer (3% in USA) offer 25 year workmanship warranty and lifetime on the shingles!
Curb Appeal: According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), a new roof is one of the upgrades that brings homeowners joy. NAR’s joy score lists roofing as one of the best investments for joy and financial return.

The second of the summer home renovations projects you may want to tackle is replacing your old windows with new energy-efficient windows. Window replacement in Beverly is a smart decision as it adds home value while decreasing energy bills with the bonus of adding major curb appeal to your home.
On top of being very shiny and appealing, they offer a U-Factor as low as .16, have the lowest air infiltration rates in the industry, and a metal-free warm edge super spacer that drastically reduces heat loss. Advancements in window technology over the past decade make these replacement windows the best choice for overall durability and energy efficiency. The heat loss and insulation factors are a huge part of why windows are considered an ideal summer project, considering it also helps keep your cool air in as we go into the warmer months…and cut your energy bills!
