If your home needs a roof replacement, it will quickly become obvious how important your roof is to the health of your home. If you’ve been putting off replacing your roof, take a look at this guide to learn about the benefits that installing a new roof can provide for your home today!
Heat rises, so as you may have guessed, your home loses a considerable amount of heat through your attic and roof. If you roof has seen better days, its quite likely that you’re losing more energy out your roof than you may think. A good rule of thumb is to go into your attic on a sunny day. If you see rays of light beaming through every little crack in your roof, you likely need to replace your roof. Adding insulation over your attic door can help, but the best way to increase your home’s energy efficiency is to replace your roof. On the flip side, shingle technology has improved vastly over the last few decades, and there are now shingles that reflect sunlight in order to reduce solar heat gain and reduce your air conditioning costs. With the potential to save so much on your energy bills, replacing your roof as soon as possible will help you save money in the long run!
Curb Appeal/Resale Value
Another benefit that many homeowners consider when making the decision to replace their roof is that it increases your home’s curb appeal. Your roof is one of the first things that people see when they look at your home, and even if your home’s interior is meticulously kept, if your shingles are warping, cracking, or breaking, it can decrease your home’s value as potential buyers assume your home is unkempt. If you believe you will be moving within the next few years, replacing your roof could end up paying for itself between the energy efficiency savings you reap from replacing your roof and the increase in resale value that your home gains by replacing your roof. In fact, Remodeling Magazine frequently rates roof replacements as one of the highest return on investments renovations you can make on your home.
Health and Safety
Finally, installing a new roof is good for the health of you and your home. If your roof has been on your home for decades, it’s quite possible that there is a considerable amount of mold and mildew growth in your home’s roof deck. If you have any respiratory illnesses, replacing your roof can reduce your symptoms and lead to a healthier home and life. Similarly, replacing your roof can give you peace of mind, knowing that your roof is well constructed and well kept, and not bound to fail at any moment.
