One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned as a business owner, consumer and person is that it’s what you can’t see that makes the difference.

I’ll never forget when my family and I moved to a house with a bigger yard. The move put us in the market for a riding lawnmower. Back then, the upper mid-range mowers were priced between $5,000 and $6,000. One day, I walked into one of the big-box home improvement stores and saw a riding mower deeply discounted at $1,999.95. It obviously caught my eye and I thought, “It’s got 4 tires. It’s got a 42-inch mow deck, a cushioned seat and a cup holder!” I proceeded to convince myself that this low-price mower was the same as those $5,000 and $6,000 machines. Three mows later, that riding mower had broken down and wouldn’t move. I hauled it back to the big-box store, only to be told what I already knew: “That mower wasn’t made to handle a yard like yours.” It was what I couldn’t see that made the difference, and I paid the price ($1,999.95 plus the cost of the lawnmower I needed in the first place).

When it comes to contracting, whether it’s remodeling a kitchen, replacing a roof or installing new windows in Alexandria, VA, I like to remind people to look below the surface of the investment they’re making. What makes a difference is the quality and experience of the person doing the work and the caliber of the products that come together to complete the project. To get all of the benefits you want from home remodeling or renovation, trust the process and make wise choices that will ultimately cost you less – and this savings goes beyond the monetary. Choosing quality means a shorter time commitment, less aggravation and fewer headaches.

I don’t say these things because I want you to invest in Roofing & More’s products and services; I say them because I want to help save you time and money that will lead to greater peace of mind as a homeowner.
