As the temperatures start to rise again, more homeowners are beginning to plan home improvements. Spring is not only a popular season for building decks and additions, but it is also a great time for replacing old roofs. With a new roof, your home’s appeal will increase as well as its protection against outdoor elements.
Read on to find out why it’s a good idea to have your roof replaced this spring.
Increased Curb Appeal and Home Value
Investing in high-quality materials for the exterior components of your home, like siding and roofing, can result in increased curb appeal and property value. If you are thinking about selling your house in the near future, getting a new roof can help draw the attention of potential buyers.
Added Energy Efficiency
You can enjoy savings on your heating and cooling costs with an energy-efficient roof. Consider ENERGY STAR®-certified materials because they come with coatings or granules engineered to reduce heat gain. These products can keep outdoor temperatures from affecting your indoor spaces, meaning your HVAC system doesn’t need to work as hard to keep you comfortable.
Save Yourself From Costly Repairs
A damaged or old roof can cause a long list of issues in your home, from water damage and mold to electrical system problems. Roofs naturally deteriorate as they age, meaning you will eventually need to replace yours.
You’ll know it’s time to replace your roof if it is sagging and has bald areas from shingle granule loss. Cracked, peeling, loose and broken shingles are also common indications that a roofing system is reaching the end of its life.
