Last year was tough for California. Devastating wildfires destroyed lives, homes and caused scarcities in the housing market. Some homeowners just wanted to rebuild, while others needed home repairs. They still do, because skilled labor is in short supply. Unscrupulous, unqualified, con artists abound. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is, especially when it comes to your roof.
This is a broad question with a not-so-simple answer. Manufacturers periodically explore the creation of new roofing materials to suit a variety of purposes. They then go through a testing process. After the devastating Northern California wildfires of 2017 and 2018, homeowners are demanding more information about fire resistant roofing materials.
If you are looking for projects that will boost the value of your home, suggestions are all over the map from interior to exterior ideas. Updating the kitchen and the bath top most lists. You might be surprised to learn that not all sources recommend an expensive renovation. A partial upgrade with updated appliances for the kitchen and a new sink and toilet for the bathroom could do the trick. A deep cleaning can work wonders, too, when trying to attract potential buyers.
