If you’re considering repairing your roof, you may want to consider a full roof replacement instead. While repairing your roof may seem like the more cost-effective option, there are many benefits to replacing your roof entirely that make it a worthwhile investment.
Increased Energy Efficiency: A new roof can help improve the energy efficiency of your home. Modern roofing materials are designed to reflect heat and reduce the amount of energy needed to cool your home. This can lower your energy bills and save you money in the long run.
Increased Property Value: A new roof can increase the value of your home. If you’re planning to sell your home in the future, a new roof can make your home more attractive to potential buyers and increase its resale value.
Improved Aesthetics: A new roof can give your home a fresh, updated look. With a variety of colors, styles, and materials available, you can choose a roof that complements the style of your home and enhances its curb appeal.
Increased Durability: A new roof is more durable than a repaired one. Modern roofing materials are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, such as heavy rain, high winds, and hail. This means you’ll have a roof that can protect your home for years to come.
Peace of Mind: A new roof can give you peace of mind knowing that your home is protected. With a new roof, you won’t have to worry about leaks, damage, or repairs for a long time. This can save you stress and time in the long run.
How long a roof lasts under normal circumstances involves several factors, including the types of materials used and the quality of workmanship. Some materials are stronger than others are, and they can withstand more severe weather conditions without degrading. Here’s a quick look at how long the most common roofing materials last:
Each type of roofing will have its own warranties. For example, although slate tiles are known to last more than a hundred years, they typically only come with 50-year warranties.
With any type of roofing materials, the bottom line is that your roof degrades over time. The more your roof degrades, the less it is able to protect your home, your family and your belongings.
Roof damage isn’t always easy to spot – especially from the ground or inside the attic. However, you can do a visual inspection and look for:
Some signs are obvious – but others may take a trained eye. For that reason, we always recommend that homeowners take advantage of our free roof inspection. We’ll send a trained inspector to your home at a time that works for you.
Your inspector will look at every inch of your roof (including the inside from your attic) to check for signs of damage. Having a professional roof inspection is, by far, the best way to determine whether you need to replace your roof.
