One of the things that most homeowners think about is the condition and remaining lifespan of their home’s roof. Since roof replacement is not an inexpensive home improvement, it is usually best to plan ahead. Knowing the condition of your roof is part of that planning process. So is knowing what benefits you can achieve with roof replacement, so you can decide whether to do it sooner rather than later.
- Aesthetics – There are many newer roofing products on the market today that can give you a far more appealing roof than you might currently have. Even shingles have come a long way and remain the most common material for roof replacement. Roof replacement can transform the look of your home, making it a joy to return to each day.
- Insurance – Another benefit of roof replacement is appeasing your insurance company. Sometimes they will demand that you get it replaced in order to continue coverage. If it is getting up in years, the chances for that increase. You might also find that if it is of advanced age and you suffer storm damage, the insurance claim is more difficult to resolve satisfactorily.
- Energy Efficiency – An older roof may not be insulating your home as well as it could be. Newer materials can boost energy efficiency, as well. Color can also make a difference. Your roofing contractor can provide you with roof replacement options that can maximize energy efficiency and save you hundreds or more over the life of your home.
