Your home’s roof is very important; it protects the inside of your home from the elements, adds structural stability, and plays a major part in your home’s efficiency. While repairing the damage is one of the most common reasons to replace your roof, it’s not the only one. Replacing your roof can increase your home’s value and efficiency, and is a great way to invest in your house.
If you live in Charleston, Logan, Beckley, and the surrounding areas, here are some reasons why you should think about replacing your roof.
One of the most obvious reasons to replace your roof is if it’s damaged. A damaged roof poses numerous issues to your home. Storm damage can lead to water leaks that cause water damage inside your home. Water damage leads to mildew and mold, causing structural damage and posing many health and safety risks. If your roof is damaged beyond the point of repair, you’ll need to replace the entire roof to ensure its structural integrity and the safety of your family. Waiting to repair or replace a damaged roof costs you more money in the long run and runs the risk of destroying valuable contents inside your home.
An old roof that’s nearing the end of its usable life presents safety hazards, such as water damage and the increased likelihood for leaks. Old, worn roofs are more likely to suffer from damage during inclement weather like high winds, heavy snowfall, and severe storms.
If you have a shingled roof and your shingles are buckled or curling, it’s time to think about replacing your roof. Buckling and curling are caused when the felt underlay gets wet or wrinkled. Wet underlay can cause mold and mildew which in turn eats away at your home and causes more damage. A new roof eliminates any damage associated with your old one and is much more resilient to damage and more weather-resistant. Replacing an old roof can help prevent future damage.
Replacing a roof is a huge expense; so much so that most people balk at the idea of replacing their roof unless it’s absolutely necessary. While replacing your roof may seem very costly, it’s actually a very sound investment. Replacing your roof can increase curb appeal and drastically increase your home’s value. If your home has an older roof, replacing it with a newer style lifts years off your home’s age and makes it look more fresh and modern. There are plenty of styles and colors to choose from when replacing your roof, ensuring your new roof will match your home’s current architectural style.
A new roof made of quality materials increases your home’s value and according to Windows on Washington, the ROI from a new roof is approximately 70 percent. Considering roofs last well over 20 years, replacing your home’s roof is a sound investment that pays long-lasting dividends.
In addition to an increased value and great ROI, replacing your roof significantly increases your home’s efficiency. Your roof does a lot more than just protect you from the elements; it also moderates the temperature inside your home. An old roof is far less efficient at regulating your home’s temperature. An efficient roof keeps warm air inside your home during cold winter months and keeps cool air in during hot summer months.
