New Roof Benefits

When it comes to home improvements, it’s easy to overlook the condition of your roof. You don’t spend much time up there. Out of sight, out of mind, right? However, you may be surprised that a new roof provides many benefits and is one of the best investments you can make as a homeowner.


When to Invest in a New Roof

Roofs don’t last forever. As a general rule, you should consider replacing your roof when it is about 20 years or older. There are also visible signs that you need a new roof, such as:


● Missing or damaged shingles


● The roof looks old, faded, or worn


● Missing Flashing, Gutter Guards, or Fascia


● Sagging roof


Your utility bills can also be an indicator. High heating and cooling costs can also be a sign that your roof is not functioning efficiently. Maybe there are cracks or gaps or outdated shingles absorbing excessive heat.


Prior to listing your house for sale is a good time to have the roof replaced. For those wanting to give their home a new look, a new roof may also be the answer.


If you’re uncertain whether or not it’s time for a new roof, contact a local roofer to conduct an inspection and provide recommendations.


Benefits of a New Roof


A new roof is an investment. You don’t want a cheap rush job. A high-quality new roof can offer significant benefits, maybe even some you haven’t considered before.


● Improved curb appeal: You may not often think about it, but a home’s roof is a very visible feature and makes up a substantial percentage of the exterior. A reputable roofing company can help you select the ideal color and style of shingles and install a new roof that complements your home.


● Increased home value: If you are planning to sell your home, a new roof can go a long way in increasing the home value. A new roof is one problem potential buyers won’t have to worry about for decades. The National Association of Realtors actually found that a roof has helped 33% of realtors close a sale on a home.


● Energy efficiency: A new roof will close up any gaps or cracks that are leaking air, helping to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. Most modern shingles are also designed to repel heat and can lower cooling costs.


● Safety: Perhaps most importantly, you’ll benefit from the peace of mind of knowing that a new roof is providing security and protection for your family and possessions.
