When Remodeling, Don’t Forget Your Home’s Exterior!


<< More From Moss Building & Design




Dear Moss Building & Design,

When it comes to home improvement, I like to focus most of my attention on my home’s interior. However, do you have any tips on what I should focus on regarding my home’s exterior?


Dear Dulles Mom,

Summertime around Northern Virginia can be INTENSE, to say the least. And while we haven’t experienced any dramatic storms here recently, this is a good time to “batten down the hatches,” as they say, because storm season is upon us. We at MOSS understand this and currently have a couple of offers to help our customers be prepared.

Most people know when you have a leak inside your home, it’s time to investigate the condition of your roof. However, checking your roof’s condition is something that should be done before you find a leak to prevent damage! Additionally, homeowners should be aware of the cleanliness of their gutters. Keeping your gutters free of debris is just as important as making sure the roof is secure. If your gutters aren’t clear, then you could end up with a flooded basement or even settlement issues. MOSS’ current offer of a free gutter cleaning and gutter guard installation with a full roof replacement purchase will give you peace of mind and a great deal all in one (offer expires August 31, 2017). Not sure if you need a full roof replacement? Call us for a complimentary inspection.

If you have secured the roof and your gutters are clear and sturdy, time to check your siding. How is that looking? If there are missing pieces or if it seems like there is deterioration, it might be time to consider a replacement. There is no better product in the siding market than James Hardie. In honor of Moss Building & Design’s 16th anniversary, we have an offer of $1,000 off when you purchase James Hardie ColorPlus siding for your whole home (offer expires Sept. 30, 2017).
