As a new year begins, it is a perfect time to assess the previous year and make a plan for improvements for the new year. Many people create New Year’s Resolutions in hopes of bettering themselves. Unfortunately, these quickly fade away.
But let’s consider your home. What can you put on your to-do list for the upcoming year that will bring positive results? Perhaps upgrading appliances are on your list. Or you are creating a new garden area. Something to consider is a new roof. How can a roof replacement be a positive change to your home? Here are 5 reasons to consider a roof replacement.
Increased Home Value
A new roof can bring increased value to your property. According to Remodeling Magazine, a new roof can boost your home value by $12,000. Asphalt shingles offer a huge variety of colors and styles to choose from. Perhaps you are looking to upgrade from an asphalt roof to metal or cedar. Metal roofing has earned the title of “Cadillac of Roofing” because it is highly durable, low maintenance, and fire and water-resistant. These are excellent qualities in a roofing system! Perhaps cedar offers intrigue to you as a new roofing material. The natural beauty of cedar shingles increases as they age. Regardless of the type of roofing system you choose, a new roof can increase the value and curb appeal of your home.
Improve Energy Efficiency
Are your monthly bills becoming larger than you desire? Perhaps a new roof with additional insulation can improve your home’s energy efficiency. A variety of ENERGY-STAR roofing options are available and should be considered when deciding on a new roof.
Selling Your Home
Is 2023 the year you plan to move and you will need to sell your home? If your current roof is quite old, perhaps upgrading to a new system will be more appealing to a potential buyer. The exterior of your home is the first impression so make it a good one!
Is your roof showing signs of damage? Sagging rooflines, water stains, missing shingles, and ice dams are all evidence of a less-than-perfect working roof. You can only know the true extent of any damage by having your roof professionally inspected. A qualified roofing contractor will be able to assess all damage and offer sound advice on the steps you need to take.
