While the Midwest is known for harsh winters and humid summers, we’re also known for heavy showers. That’s why many homeowners around Illinois have begun taking advantage of our rainy months by harvesting rain for use in gardens and yards. By collecting rain, you can save hundreds of dollars a year off your water bill and decrease your household’s overall water consumption.
The Rain Harvest app for the iPhone and iPad is a great way to calculate how much rain you can collect during any rainstorm. Simply put in the dimensions of your roof and the number of inches expected, and you’ll know exactly how much water you’re to collect.
To maximize your rain harvesting efficiency, make sure that your roof and gutters are in great shape. For expert roof restoration and remodeling, contact Apex Exteriors. Call (847) 961-4601 to learn about roofing, siding, windows, and doors today.
