Anything Up There? The importance of attics.
At #CraftsmanDirect.com we realize that it is far easier to with problems you do see, than those you do not. You look at your floors, ceilings, walls, bathrooms and kitchens on a daily basis so it's pretty obvious what you have and if you want to remodel, renovate or repair. Attics, however, can go unnoticed for long periods of time.
The attic is a key component of your home. It separates the roof from the living quarters and often a great deal of space is left under-utilized. Done properly, you can convert an attic into living quarters, a spare room, a study or storage space. At the very least, your attic should be adequately filled with insulation. Insulation, like everything else, eventually ages so it's important to maintain its integrity by adding more or replacing it on a regular basis. Ignoring attic upkeep will raise both your heating and cooling costs as heat seeps out in the winter and heat presses in during the summer.
#CraftsmanDirect.com can assess your attic and discuss options with you. Whether you want a full #AtticRemodel or just the #insulation kept up, CraftsmanDirect.com can do the job. At the same time, you might want to consider a whole house check-up. It's just like a physical, but for your home. Again, everything ages and the wiring and pipes are not usually out there staring you in the face. If they are, please call immediately! We can be reached at 919-612-9000 and www.CraftsmanDirect.com. Remember if you smell gas, please leave your home and promptly call your gas company's emergency number.
