Take Good Care of Your Concrete Tile Roof

by Heidi Winston, RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Recipie

If you are a relatively new homeowner or just new to the area, it is important you educate yourself on the common issues that can arise within your home so that you can properly take care of them and avoid damage caused by neglect. One area of your home you need to make sure is properly maintained is your roof. Most roofs in our area are made of a ceramic tile. Ceramic tile roofs offer some nice benefits among them being the longevity of the roof but the roof can’t do it’s primary job if you don’t take good care of it.

Take a little time to understand the way your roof protects your home. The tiles on your roof are there to protect the roof felt and do little to repel water from your home. The roof felt is coated with a substance that repels water and is the primary barrier that keeps water out of your home. The barrier on the roof felt is easily broken down by regular exposure to ultraviolet rays and relies on the protection of your roof tiles to keep it functioning well.

While a damaged or missing roof tile likely is unlikely to cause an immediate leak, they should be repaired or replaced as soon as possible before the sun begins to break down the roof felt rendering the water repelling surface useless. Annual inspections of your roof will help you prolong its life. Another common part of your roof to cause issues is the flashing around any roof penetrations. This flashing is also broken down by sun exposure and will need to be refreshed periodically to keep it functioning.

When making repairs to your roof, don’t be tempted to use your handyman or do the work yourself. A licensed roofing contractor may cost slightly more but will save you money in the long run by eliminating repairs from damage cost by a leaking roof. Regular maintenance is part of the cost of owning a home and should be factored into your annual budget so that you can plan for it. Avoiding regular maintenance can cost you way more than spending the necessary money to take care of your home so factor maintenance into your budget before you buy a home and if there isn’t enough left for maintenance, consider purchasing a less expensive home that will free up the money you need to take care of your home carefully.

When you purchase a home, it is important to develop a list of professionals you can rely on for different issues. Friends and neighbors can offer great recommendations and any time you need a trusted home professional to call, let me know and I will share my recommendations with you.

Small and 'Micro' Home Gardening

by Heidi Winston, RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Recipie

 

Gardening may be fun, but can't I get the same quality and chemical-free vegetables and herbs in the organic section of my local grocery store?  You might think so, watch this eye-opening video about the difference between so-called 'organic' grocery store produce and produce available from a local farmer's market (which would in essence be what you would be growing in your own home garden.)

WHEN Should I Start?

It's almost June, is it too late to get started?  Absolutely not!  A really great resource about when to plant particular plants can be found here in the Farmer's Almanac. If you're considering an indoor micro garden you can pretty much get going any time of year.

HOW to Get Started Outdoor Gardening

If you're planning a small outdoor garden there are several key elements that you want to keep in mind.

First, and probably most important is deciding where to locate your garden so that it gets the proper amount of sunlight for the types of plants you're looking to grow.  Here are some helpful ideas on site selection. 
Location also will be impacted by how you plan to water your garden, as well as drainage. This online garden planning tool that can help you with both of those.

Second, decide what types of plants grow well in your geographic region or climate. Check with as many local plant and gardening stores as you can. They will know first-hand what will and will not grow well.

Third, plan on how you will irrigate your garden: by hand, drip hose, or sprinkler. There are many great options for available for drip irrigation systems.

Fourth, do you need to account for deer or other wildlife that may enjoy your garden's bounty as much as you plan on enjoying it? Deer-proof your garden with this list of 20 ways to keep deer away


Getting a 'Micro' Garden Started

If you want to start out small, micro-gardening is a great way to do just that. Lots of folks who like to do their own 'juicing' utilize indoor micro-gardening to grow all the ingredients that will go into their juicer.  To get started, here is a list of seven great plants that you can grow in a very small amount of space.

Have fun and happy growing!
