Unfortunately, roofs don’t last forever and will eventually need to be replaced. If you are at the point of needing a new roof, you have many benefits ahead to look forward to. Some benefits are obvious, like your new roof won’t leak any more, but there are also some hidden benefits that are sometimes forgotten. Some of these hidden benefits are:
1. Energy Efficiency – Your roof plays an important role in how much heat enters and/or escapes your home. If your roof is older, it is likely that it isn’t performing as it should, and replacing it will help to hold cool air in and keep hot air out. Also, if your roof is older, it is likely that the technology and roofing materials have improved for greater energy efficiency.
2. Home Value – A new roof will increase the value of your home. If you are thinking about selling your home, you can be confident that potential home buyers will value the new roof.
3. Insurance Coverage – Did you know that many home insurance companies only offer limited coverage or no coverage at all for homes with a roof older than 20 years? You can enjoy the added benefit of complete home insurance coverage with a new roof.
4. Better Air Quality – Older roofs tend to allow moisture into a home, which will often lead to damage to the wood and drywall in some areas of your home. Moisture is a huge problem as it can lead to mold problems. Mold in one area of the home can negatively affect the air throughout the entire home. Help to keep your home mold- and mildew-free and improve the air that your family breathes with a new roof.
