Revive Your Curb Appeal With A Roof Replacement

Published , By Brian Olson

With the recent change in the housing market, homeowners are looking for simple ways to increase the curb appeal of their homes. Realtors estimate that you can improve as much as 40% of your home’s curb appeal with a new roof. A new roof instantly improves the overall look of your home and provides a number of other advantages.

Benefits Of Roof Replacement

Replacing your roof can be a big decision and it’s always a good idea to weigh the perks against the cost of the installation. To help you make a more informed decision, here are some of the key benefits to replacing your roof.

Return On Investment

Replacing your roof is one of the best home improvements to make and even with the current cost of building materials and labor, can still bring you an average of a 60% return on your investment. 

Increased Property Value

A brand-new roof not only makes your home look fantastic, it increases your property value and makes it much easier for your house to sell. 

More Energy Efficient

Older roofs are more likely to leak air causing your HVAC system to work overtime and use more energy to maintain the desired temperature. By replacing your roof, you eliminate these drafts, put less wear and tear on your heating and cooling system, and can even see a nice decrease in your monthly energy bills. 

Prevent Health Hazards

Older roofs are a breeding ground of potentially dangerous health hazards such as mold and mildew. Installing a brand new roof can reduce this threat to you and your family. 

Increased Safety

The older your roof gets, the more likely you are to experience a dangerous situation, for example, part of your roof collapsing. An event like this can cause additional damage such as part of your home becoming unstable. 

Peace Of Mind

One of the best benefits to having your roof replaced is the peace of mind that comes along with it. You won’t have to worry about whether or not your roof can stand up to the elements plus you will have that extra security of a warranty to put your mind at ease. 

New Technology

Enhancements in technology are happening all the time and roofs aren’t an exception. A new roof installed today will likely feature a multitude of advantages that weren’t available even 20 or 30 years ago.
