A roof replacement may not be at the top of your list, considering that generally roofs last fifteen years or more. Most homeowners put off replacing their roofs until they notice undeniable damage.
That is understandable since a roof upgrade could cost you thousands of dollars, according to the Roofing Calculator’s updated cost estimate on roof replacement. Sturdier materials are also more expensive, but they can be better if you want your roof to withstand extreme climates and last longer.
As you consider the cost and the best material to use for a roof upgrade, we’ll tell you how you can save for the long term if you upgrade your roof.
It raises the value of your property
Knowing that roofs last 15 years or more, you can benefit from replacing your roof now and increase your property valuation for the next ten years or so. If you ever choose to put your house on the market, you could see a significant return on investment (ROI). The obvious benefit to this is that you get an upgraded roof while having a high-value property for the next few years.
It improves your HVAC system
Your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system could greatly improve after a roof replacement. You could save energy and, of course, money from paying a cheaper monthly electricity bill.
It improves the look of your home
You can significantly improve the curb appeal of your home with a new roof installation. Since this is what people see first when arriving at your home, it can increase your property’s value for potential buyers in the future. A roof makeover for your home will make it look new and modern.
It will save you from health hazards
If you have allergies, a damaged roof could let allergens from the outside invade your home, taking a toll on your health. A leaky roof could also cause water to get in your home and lead to molding, which can be a severe health hazard when not taken care of instantly.
It will keep your family safer
Extreme weather conditions could lead to harmful damage to your roof, causing it to collapse and cause serious injuries to your family. It may also lead to the loss or damage of your expensive belongings.
It uses new technology.
Roofing companies now use advanced technology to make more sustainable roofs that last longer. You can also choose energy-efficient and environmentally friendly roofing materials, such as the so-called “cool roof” that absorbs less heat and reflects more light.
On top of it all…
Your home, everything inside, and everything below your roof is an investment. That should mean that you must take extra care of it.
