A roof replacement can be a huge decision and have an enormous impact on your home. The first thing that comes to mind is probably cost, and that’s natural. It’s an intimidating project for almost any homeowner, in part because it’s tackled so rarely in the life of a house. The average roof can last for decades, so homeowners typically reroof no more than once. Plus, the cost is daunting: Roof replacement calls for a substantial investment, enough to make any budget-conscious homeowner hesitate.
While spending the cash on a roof doesn’t seem quit as enticing as remodeling your kitchen, it’s one of the most critical steps you can take toward safeguarding the structural integrity of your home. But putting the investment costs aside, a new roof can do much more for your home than just keep out the rain and snow. So, what exactly does a new roof mean for a homeowner?
Property Value: A new roof makes your home much easier to sell.
Energy Efficiency: Chances are that your old roof leaking cool air, meaning your HVAC system needs to work harder to achieve your desired indoor temperature.
Safety: The longer you wait to replace your old roof, the more dangerous the situation can become. An old roof in some cases may collapse or cause part of the home to become unstable.
Return on Investment (ROI): With an average ROI of 67-70%, new roofs are one of the best home improvement projects.
New Technology: Because roofs last such a long time, the technology of a new roof is no doubt several generations ahead of a roof that was put on in the 1990s.
Curb Appeal: Realtors estimate that as much as 40 percent of your home’s curb appeal is directly linked to your roof.
