If you are preparing for a new roof installation, there’s a good chance you are replacing your roof for a specific reason. Whether your last roof was damaged during a hurricane or a decade past its prime, there are many benefits of a new roof that you might not realize. The investment that you make in a new roof will reward you and your family for many years to come.
1. Increased Safety
Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t know that their roof is unsafe until disaster strikes and it collapses or starts to leak. One of the biggest benefits of a new roof is increased safety. A new roof will be built with today’s safety standards in mind and designed to protect you from rain, snow, ice and the weight of all three. Even if you don’t notice a leak, older roofs can let excess moisture into your home. This moisture can eventually lead to mold spores that contribute to poor indoor air quality.
2. Better Property Value
Even if you aren’t planning to put your home on the market in the next year, a new roof is a wonderful way to increase the value of your home. New roofs are actually considered to be one of the best investments that you can make in your property, as they have a much higher return on investment than other home improvement projects that are more subjective in their value. No homebuyer wants to worry about immediately replacing the roof after moving in, so the investment that you make now could still pay off five years in the future if you list your home for sale.
3. Improve Energy Efficiency
Just like older windows and doors, an old roof can be an energy efficiency nightmare. Another one of the biggest benefits of a new roof is improved energy efficiency. The warm and cool air coming from your vents won’t leak out through your roof as quickly. Instead, a new roof will help to lower your heating costs in the winter and keep the chill of the elements outside where it belongs. For even greater energy efficiency, you can explore lighter-colored roofs that will absorb less heat in the summer!
4. A New Warranty
Older roofs often have a warranty that is expired, which means that manufacturers will no longer cover damage or defects with the materials used. One of the benefits of a new roof is a new warranty! Depending on the material that you use, the manufacturer could offer a warranty anywhere from 25 to 50 years long to protect the material. It is important to note that, in order for a warranty to be valid, most companies require that the roof be installed by an experienced and properly insured roofing company like Benchmark Roofers.
5. Better Curb Appeal
Does your home look dated or worn from the outside? Benchmark Roofers can help revitalize your home and instantly boost your curb appeal with a new roof or new siding.
