B.K. from Prescott Valley sent me a sweet note and asked, “How do you determine what’s outdated in roof shingles?”
With all of the hail damaged roofs being replaced I have noticed some roofs with large areas of different colors and tones than the rest of the roof and outdated colors. Here is the clue for ensuring you are receiving up-to-date shingles for your roofs.
There are many ways that the potential for color variation can be further reduced using some simple shingle installation tips as well.
Want to meet Wally?
Wally is a leak detection fellow that can save your family from experiencing a lot of water damage.
Many of our area homeowners have experienced a pricey water leak in their home. Water damage is one of the most common and expensive home insurance claims. To decrease billions of dollars in property damage nationally every year, and to help homeowners become more educated, aware, and preventive-centric regarding water damage disasters, Sensor Nodes Utilizing Power-line Infrastructure technologies (SNUPI), a Seattle based company, has developed Wally a device that is designed to detect leaks and moisture in residential structures.
How does Wally work?
Wally stands apart since it doesn’t require frequent battery replacement to operate, using a coin cell battery, the system is set to work constantly for 10 years. This is possible by creating an antenna by using ultra-low–power technology. Positioned in various areas where water could leak such as directly beneath a property’s sink, near an area where laundry is washed, around a structure’s water heater, or simply in a basement are the “small, clam-shaped wireless nodes.” An email or text alerts the home owner when something has been detected by the sensors so that an investigation into the potential problem can be immediately launched before any damage is done. Currently Wally is available through the Wally website – wallyhome.com
Installation of Wally is simple. The Wally hub plugs into any electrical outlet and comes with six sensors which can be placed anywhere in the property. Installation must first be initiated by setting up a Wally account and naming the positions where you are going to designate your sensors. Next, the hub is plugged to your network and then you download the iPhone or Android app to use while activating the sensors. The sensors are unnoticeable and inconspicuous. It should be understood that in order for the device to detect water in the first place, either the vertical or horizontal metal contact points need to be touching a surface that could get wet.
Wally is innovative, easy to arrange and simple to use as well. Having such a system in place will clearly help watch out for water leaks, and facilitate fast treatment of any problems detected. For home owners looking to be proactive rather than reactive, the Wally leak detection device is clearly something to look into.
