The Benefits of Replacing a Roof

The average roof can last for a couple of decades, so long-term homeowners will typically only need roof replacement once. It can be a daunting and intimidating task, but if your roof has deteriorated and needs serious repair, it is important to have it replaced by professionals. Aside from preventing leaks, there are actually quite a few benefits associated with replacing your roof.

It increases curb appeal. A deteriorated roof with chipped or missing shingles is an unattractive eyesore. When replacing a roof, you can wipe the slate clean and give your home a new look by adding tiles, solar panels, or a skylight. Giving your home’s exterior a makeover will increase its curb appeal and make it stand out when you’re ready to put it on the market. Like a fancy new hairdo for your home, a fresh roof just looks nice.

It’s a good investment. A shabby roof in a state of disrepair is a red flag to potential home buyers, while a new roof can increase the property value of your home and make it much easier to sell. Therefore, the cost of replacing your roof will eventually be returned to you in resale value. That’s a good return on investment.

It’s cost and energy efficient. New roofing not only adds value to your home, but it can also save you money by decreasing your monthly utility bills. An old roof is likely leaking cool air, forcing your HVAC system to work overtime to cool your home. A fortified, energy efficient, insulated roof can help stabilize the temperatures inside while also protecting you from higher repair costs when the next storm rolls along.

It improves health and safety. You never want to be unprepared when a severe weather event is approaching. Hurricane-force winds can easily decimate a weak or damaged roof and cause the underlying structure to become unstable or collapse. Even if it withstands a destructive storm, a dilapidated roof can present a bevy of health hazards. Moisture in the cracks can cause mold and mildew to grow, which can cause serious health issues to your home’s occupants. Don’t get caught in a storm. Ensure your family’s safety by replacing your roof with one that can withstand the elements.
