Replacing a roof can be an expensive, time consuming ordeal. No one wakes up hoping that today they get to pay for a new roof. Many times, homeowners wait until there are leaks and the roof is half blown off before they break down and make that call. The truth is, you could save yourself a ton of money by proactively protecting your home with a quality roof. Here are 5 great reasons to consider a new roof on your home.

To increase your home’s resale value:

Did you know that a new roof can boost your home’s resale value by nearly $12,000? It can also attract more buyers, allowing you to sell your home faster, thus reducing the amount you will have to pay in marketing and real estate agent fees.

To improve your home’s appearance:

There is no doubt that a new roof immediately improves a home’s aesthetic value. There are many options when it comes to new roofing installation materials, and they now come in a variety of different colors and styles.

To get a better warranty:

In the past, a standard warranty was around 15 to 20 years. Today, shingled roofs offer warranties up to 50 years.

To take advantage of new roofing technology:

Some shingled roofs now have an Energy Star rating. They are designed to reflect solar heat away from the building, thus reducing cooling costs. Updated roofing will save you money in the long run for this reason among others.

To avoid issues during inspection:

Experts recommend that you have a roof service inspect your roof once or twice a year. Even if you do not have it done regularly, your house must pass an inspection before it can be sold. Because it is one of the most important features of a house, a roof in need of repair could stop your home from selling.

On average, homeowners will spend between one and four percent of a home’s value annually on all sorts of restoration and improvements, including roofing repair and maintenance. The cost tends to increase as the house ages. For a $200,000 home, that’s at least $2,000 in repairs each year. Though a standard roof may cost a homeowner between $1,000 and $4,000 to replace by himself, it is recommended that the work is completed by a professional roof service. Roofers often charge between $2,000 and $85,000. It may be more expensive, but you can rest assured that the installation is performed skillfully and that your new roof will be safe and secure for years to come.
