You might be thinking, what? How is my roof my friend? The roof is, after all, an inanimate object which cannot produce feelings or express an opinion or display shows of gratitude… And it is with this perspective, that you are correct. But, what your roof lacks in ability to hold a conversation, it more than makes up for in protecting your family and house (you may choose to have a conversation with your roof if you so desire, but your neighbor Bob may never look at you quite the same again).
And it is for these reasons that we would like to take a moment of your time while we give a hearty and heartfelt thanks to our friend and yours, the roof.
November is, afterall, the month of giving thanks; and it is within this spirit that the pride of the greater Bryan / College Station area, RocStout Roofing, would like to serve up 3 heaping scoops of reasons as to why we should all be thanking our roofs.
Your Roof And Home Go Hand-In-Hand:
If you care about your home and your property, then it is a no-brainer that you would care about your roof. Think of all the things your roof does to protect your house. Just like any good friend, your roof gives you a damage-free “umbrella” when it is raining. Your roof and its gutter system also keep water and moisture from seeping into the foundation of your home and causing long-term and very expensive damage.
That said, what better way to say thank you to your roof than by hiring a roofing specialist to perform a couple of yearly, routine inspections. It’s like taking your vehicle for an oil change, only on a much larger scale.
Your Roof Strengthens Your Investment:
If you are planning on moving any time in the near future, it would be a very wise decision to hire a roofing pro to come make sure your roof is in the best shape possible so you can get top dollar for your house. The roof is one of the main, if not the main thing a housing inspector will look at, and a well-polished roof can net you thousands of dollars.
In the end, this is yet another reason to thank your roof, because that good friend of yours just made you a ton of money!
The last and final reason as to why you should be thanking your roof has to do with your heating and cooling bills; two things that can cause major headaches and financial strain during the winter and summer months. A properly maintained roof will work wonders in keeping your house toasty in the winter and super chill in the summer, and thus, yet again, netting you major monetary gains. Thanks, friend!
So while you are contemplating which pie to bake and how many pounds of turkey to buy (we recommend getting as much as possible so those turkey sandwiches carry into May…), don’t forget to give your old friend the roof some love and shoutouts this stuffing and cranberry sauce-crazed season.
