The shingles are starting to peel where the sun beats down on your roof. You’ve noticed bits of shingles blown off on your driveway and it’s starting to look like your old roof needs to be replaced. A brand new roof is a big investment and a maintenance bill that is easy to put off for just one more year, or two…or three.
The obvious benefit of installing a new roof is that it protects your home from the weather and potential leaks that could lead to water damage, health risks and some very expensive repairs. If you live in Canada, you know you can’t put off that new roof for too many seasons.
Here are some other advantages to replacing your roof:
Improve Energy Efficiency
Investing in an updated roofing system will improve your home’s efficiency and that will result in lower energy bills. An old roof is far less likely to keep in the warm air during our cold winter months and keep in the cool air during the summer. A professional roofing company will use quality products that help protect your home from the weather and advise you on proper insulation and ventilation systems to enhance efficiency.
Return on Investment
According to Remodeling Magazine’s 2015 Cost vs. Value Report, you will receive a 71.6% return on investment with your new roof. That is up over 3% from last year. If you are planning on putting your home on the real estate market you’ll be able to list it at a better price, attract more buyers, increase your chances of a quick sale and will get most of your money back.
Warranty and Peace of Mind
Have your new roof installed by a professional roofing contractor and you will receive a strong warranty. It’s a large expense, but knowing you don’t have to worry about your roof for the next decade or more will give you peace of mind. It will also add value when trying to sell your home as the new owner will benefit from the warranty.
Beyond it being a sound investment, having a new roofing system will boost your curb appeal. An aged, deteriorating roof can make any home look like it’s in disrepair and falling apart. New asphalt shingles are looking better than ever, are available in a wide range of colours and styles, and can even mimic the look of slate or wood shingles. You’ll love the way your home looks; so will your neighbours and potential home buyers.
