Whether you’ve just purchased a new home and are unsatisfied with its roof, or it has been years since you’ve had work done on the roof of your forever home, it’s never a bad idea to make the investment and have a new roof installed.
While it may be an expense upfront, you will more than likely save money in the long run, as well as gain peace of mind in knowing your family is protected.
No matter if it be the safety a new roof provides when a storm or harsh weather roll through, the energy efficiency it offers or even the curb appeal and increase in property value it can provide, it is never a bad idea to have a new roof installed at your home.
It keeps your family, property safe
When a storm rolls through your neighborhood, you want to have the assurance that your family and property will be safe and unharmed.
A new roof will help ensure what is going on outside stays there and will go a long way in protecting your home itself, from the foundation to the attic.
As a bonus, a new roof will also make sure that anyone who goes up on your roof will be free from injury. Whether it be a roofer making small repairs, a family member putting up holiday decorations or anything in between, you can rest assured your new roof will be able to support them and keep them safe.
Improves energy efficiency
Many roofs today are made with materials that provide greater energy efficiency for your home. Your new roof will have the ability to keep heat out better than your previous one, allowing you to run your air conditioning less during the blistering summer months.
While you are going to be dolling out money upfront to have your new roof put on, this energy efficiency will reduce your bills each month and save you a great amount of money in the long run (up to $500 per year).
When you’re looking to have a return on investment, as well as improve your energy “footprint”, a new roof is a great option.
Increases the value of your home
No matter if you are planning on selling your home in a few years, or you will be enjoying it for many years into the future, it’s never a bad idea to add a new roof to your home.
A new roof will increase your home’s property value and add curb appeal that can help you close a deal more quickly if you put your home up for sale.
Some studies have shown that the addition of a new roof can increase the resale value of your home by as much as $17,000, allowing you to recover over 60% of the installation costs.
