Light In; Everything Else Out!

What’s wrong with this picture?


If you haven’t noticed, it’s the dead roach in the skylight!

When prospective buyers are looking at your home they are looking everywhere – down, around and up.  It’s important to keep skylights clean and clear of any debris or  stains.  Otherwise, buyers get concerned about it.

If you’ve had a roof leak, (which is common) get it repaired and painted back to its original condition.  When buyers look up and see a brown stain on a ceiling, they assume it is a current leak.  Don’t let them think that!

Last note, get the right person for the repair job. If your roof is leaking, get a licensed roofing contractor. If you have a dead bug or other debris in your skylight, you can probably do it yourself or get a good handyman to clean it out.
