The Cost and Value of Your Roof

The roof of your home is considered as the protective shield that keeps you safe against nature’s wrath. With your roof, you are protected from rain, sleet, snow and heat over the course of the changing seasons in a year and lasting for several years. Clearly, it serves as the defending bastion of your home to keep everything safe and sound against the forces of Mother Nature. Without it, your home is left prone to damage such as holes, missing roof shingles or even leaking. If you’re look to sell your home, the value of your roof is important. The roof of your house serves as a first impression on how you maintain your home. The lower the quality of the roof, the lower the chances of your home being bought by your client. What are the factors that affect the cost and value of your roof? Here are some of the things that determine your roof’s cost.

Type of Material Used

It’s a given that the better and more expensive the material used on your roof, the higher the chances of your home getting bought. The type of material used in the composition of your roof determines its value as stronger and sturdier materials come at a much higher price. Once potential buyers get a hold of that fact, they’ll probably tip the scales in your favor if you want to sell your home. For example, a home with slate roofing would have a higher cost and value than a home with only a wooden shingles for the roof.

General Condition of the Roof

The overall condition of the roof is important if you’re planning to sell your home. If your roof is kept at its best condition by conducting the necessary repairs and making regular maintenance, chances are, the cost and value of your roof would be significantly higher than that of a roof that’s visibly damaged or not well-maintained over the years. A clean and intact roof typically attracts potential buyers to your home if you want to sell it.

Any Presenting Damage on the Roof

Just about any kind of damage on your roof is a downer when it comes to the cost and value of your roof. If you want to raise the value of your roof, making the necessary repairs is crucial. For example, a portion of the roof with missing shingles or cracked tiles isn’t a very attractive thing to look at which lowers the cost and value of your roof.

Leaks, Rotting or Gaps

Underlying damage on the roof can also lower its cost and value. For example, rotting felt found beneath the shingles, leaky ceilings and gaps that let the water seep through the roof and into your home will not do any good for the overall cost of your roof. Read more

The Benefits of Recycling

Recycling is an effective method in managing and disposing our waste through environmentally friendly means. We lessen the amount of waste without bringing harm to ourselves and the environment. Though recycling has been well-known as a way to manage waste, it has not been quite as popular for other people. That’s because they are still not aware of the benefits of recycling and the harm they are doing to the environment with the haphazard method they dispose of their waste. Burning plastic bottles, throwing away electronics carelessly and throwing away tin cans are just a few ways how most people dispose of their garbage. In that regard, what are the benefits that recycling can bring? Here are just a few examples.

A Greener Approach

Right off the bat, recycling is one of the most, if not the most, environmentally friendly method in disposing and managing waste. Recycling encompasses many principles of proper waste disposal. Waste segregation is an essential part of recycling since you have to separate each type of waste so that you know what to do with them afterwards. Paper, plastic, glass, tin, clothing, electronics and more types of waste should be separated so you don’t carelessly throw them away through harmful means. Burning plastic will damage the ozone layer and potentially cause serious health problems if you keep inhaling the fumes as they smolder in the fire. That’s because there are several chemical components in plastic bags, bottles and other products that can damage your lung tissues.

Potentially Earn Money

What’s great about recycling is that you can really earn if you do it right. There are a lot of junkyards or scrap yards that buy used metals, paper, cardboard boxes, electronics and glass. The usual way that they use is by weighing the specific type of trash in pounds or kilograms. They then have their specific price in regards to their weight. Once you separate your trash and collect them, you can go to the nearest scrap yard in your neighborhood and you can earn a few dollars. Though it isn’t a really big amount, earning something by disposing your trash properly is a great deal. You earn, dispose of your garbage properly and you’re helping keep the environment healthy. Overall, it’s a win-win situation.

An Efficient and Effective Method

If you recycle, your garbage won’t pile up like it used to. A common problem with a lot of people today is that they tend to hoard things even though they don’t really need it. This leads to pile up of useless junk in their home that often ends up being thrown in the trash eventually. For example, having too many clothes in your closet isn’t that good. It takes a lot of space, especially if that space is occupied by clothes you don’t even wear anymore. A good way around this is by donating clothes that are still in good condition to charity, shelters and the homeless so they can make use of it. Clothes that are too damaged can also be cut up and turned into rags that you can use in your home.

The Basics to Recycling

Recycling is an excellent way of managing all the waste you’ve incurred and piled up for the couple of weeks to months. It’s a great way to keep the trash at bay and save a lot of space through a method that’s friendly to the environment, to your home and the community. But the case is that most often people don’t know what to do with a specific type of waste and what to do with them. They end up just throwing them away in the trash since it’s easier that way. But that would later exhibit its effects in the long run if you don’t engage in recycling. Here are just a few ways on how to recycle the easy way.

Plastic Bottles and Bags

The number one culprit of waste buildup has usually been plastic for so many years already. That’s because people don’t know how to manage and dispose plastic properly. Though it’s tempting to burn them since it’s easy, it’s harmful for you and the environment. The several chemical components in plastic bottles and plastic bags can potentially damage your lungs if you breathe in the fumes and they can add further damage the already damaged ozone layer. A good way to recycle plastic bags is to just keep them neatly inside the house. Let them serve as emergency bags in case you need a temporary container. For plastic bottles, a really neat thing to do is turn them into planters. All you have to do is put soil inside them and you’re set. An even better idea is to cut it in half and turn it into an innovative planter with an efficient watering system.

Aluminum Cans

Soda cans are really a waste when you think about it. You can’t really do anything significant once you’re done with them. So a good way to recycle aluminum cans is to send them to scrap yards or junk shops where they buy them in bulk, usually in kilograms or pounds. This is because they want to use aluminum cans by melting them and reuse them as materials for making new aluminum cans. There are also junkyards that recycle aluminum cans actively by making sculptures and other works of art.

Clothes

When your wardrobe seems to be piling up with unused clothing, it’s time to sort things out and take out the ones you don’t wear anymore and the one’s that don’t fit you anymore. But it’s a waste to just throw away clothes. If they’re still in good condition, a great way to recycle them is by donating them to shelters, charity drives and the homeless. Not only will you free up space in your closet, you’re also doing a good deed by helping other people. But in the case when your old clothes are torn, ripped or just too worn out, turning them into cleaning rags is also better rather than letting them sit in your closet and just take up a valuable amount of space. Use these rags for cleaning your tables, kitchen and car. Click here for more

WESTERN COASTS OF KENT!

I’m beginning to feel I may have an identity crisis looming, I’m certain it won’t be long before I metamorphosise as a weather forecaster. Usually the Kent League’s fixtures for the weekend are my main focus, but again this week I’m starting my preview by looking at the Met Office web site. Its not looking good: “Showers spreading southwards giving a covering of snow in places, though falling mainly as rain or sleet near western coasts”. Whilst my paranoia doesn’t stretch to believing they are referring to the western coasts of Kent, nevertheless my newly developing identity persuades me to forecast “gloomy weather prospects for the Kent League clubs imminent”.

ADVERTISEMENT FOR THE KENT LEAGUE

There certainly wasn’t any gloom attached to last weekend with both the big games at Thamesmead Town and Deal Town living up to their pre-match hype. I’m not sure whether you can draw too much from either result; I think it’s more a case of each club being able to walk away from the matches without any dents to their aspirations or confidence. What does emerge is if the Kent League were in search of any ideas for an advertising campaign, both these games could figure prominently.

WOULD WARDY SWAP WINS?

This weekend centre stage is taken by the quarter finals of the Premier Division Cup. It’s impossible not to allow the Maidstone Utd v Cray Wanderers tie to overshadow the other games. This really is the “tie of the round” and I’m expecting it to be every bit as good as the “big games” last weekend. The sides have already met this season at Central Park on the opening Saturday with the Stones recording a 2-1 victory. I’m in no doubt that Maidstone Utd boss, Jim Ward, has the greatest respect for the visitors and his side will need to be at their very best. Would Maidstone swap a victory at Hayes Lane in the forthcoming league encounter in a couple of weeks for a victory on Saturday – I think they would – but I expect them to get both.

NEW DYNAMIC DUO

The Deal Town Chairman is reported to have issued the same “cut the wage bill” statement as Paul Bowen-Brown at Maidstone Utd. Whether that instigated the departure of Mark Seagers to Whitstable Town, one can only guess. I’m more interested in whether Deal have overcome their recent “horror shows” and are now back on track. Whether Messrs Pollard & Jones have replaced Batman & Robin as the new dynamic duo, only history will tell, but in the meantime time expect them to grab Saturdays Kent League Cup headlines.

THE OUTSIDERS TIE

In the other two ties – VCD Athletic seem to have forgotten how to lose and I would be surprised if Erith Town were able to jog their memory. The match at the Culverden Stadium between Tunbridge Wells and Herne Bay must be the “outsiders” tie of the round. Would I be wrong in thinking that if Maidstone/Cray, VCD and Deal get through they will all be looking forward at 5.30 on Saturday afternoon to getting the winners of this tie in the semi final.

WEATHER IN BECKENHAM – HELP NEEDED

With the big boys in Cup action, a lot of the glamour is missing from the remaining League fixtures. If I’m able to complete my anticipated change into a metrological genius I hope I’m able to influence the weather in Beckenham. The mounting problems with the pitch at Eden Park Avenue are no doubt at the centre of the disquieting rumours about this popular club. Lets all hope that prevailing winds will help dry both pitch and tears. Load more
