When Should You Replace Your Roof? Benefits of A Roof Replacement

Share The Wealth

Having your own home is a big achievement! Maintaining it, on the other hand, can be challenging or overwhelming, especially when it comes to making substantial repairs or replacements. For instance, there will most likely come a time when you will need to consider a roof replacement. Are you beginning to wonder if yours is reaching the end of its lifespan? Is there any noticeable damage, such as cracked shingles, or the telltale signs of a leak? These could be good indicators that it may be time for a replacement.

We understand that making the decision to replace a roof is not always easy as it can be an expensive project, in addition to the potentially time-consuming task of finding and selecting a reputable company to do the work. However, the importance of this type of capital improvement cannot be overstated and below you can find a list of just a few of the many reasons for a replacement: 

1.     Increased value of your home: The return on investment is estimated to be at approximately 70 percent as, according to appraisers, it greatly increases the value of your home. In addition, it can not only improve the curb appeal of your home (whether you simply want to show that you care about and are proud of your home and neighborhood,) but also make a difference if you are considering selling your home and maybe showing it to prospective buyers in the near future.

2.     Durability: Roof replacements provide long-term savings. The typical lifespan of a roof is between 20 and 30 years, so once you replace it, you may not have to worry about it for the duration of your homeownership.

3.     Benefits from current technology: Roofs have evolved over the years and now include improved built in blocking technologies that most likely were not in existence when your roof was last installed. One example of this would be shingles with reflective granules.

4.     Provides safety and reduces health concerns: No one wants the constant stress and worry of a leaking roof every time it rains. In addition to the potential health concerns related to bacteria growth in the insulation or sheetrock, there could be a fear of the roof collapsing due to compromised materials should there be a heavy snow or thunderstorm. Your safety and the safety of your loved ones is invaluable.

5.     A warranty can provide added peace of mind: Should an issue arise with the materials or labor, you could consider obtaining a warranty. Multiple types of warranties exist, so additional research is recommended to determine the one that best suits your needs.

By no means is this meant to be an exhaustive list, but we hope that it does help to provide some food for thought as you begin to consider this significant improvement to your home.
