A well-installed roof does more than simply keep out the weather. It’s a value-added entity to your home and property. In fact, a sound roof delivers a host of all-too-often overlooked benefits, both immediate and long-term. Whether you’re replacing an old, worn out roof, or giving your existing roof a facelift, here are three added benefits you can expect when you install a new roof.
1. A Boost in Energy Efficiency
Old roofs can leak air, causing your HVAC system to work harder to achieve your desired indoor temperature. Not only does this place more wear and tear on your HVAC system, but the inefficiency increases your energy costs. A new roof can provide a strong seal against the elements, conserving precious heat and cool air and lowering your utility bill. Additionally, new advances in design and manufacturing have led to innovative shingles that can limit solar heat gain by reflecting sunlight rather than absorbing it. Look for the "Energy Star Rating." These energy-wise shingles can also ease the burden on your HVAC system, saving you money.
2. A High Return on Investment
A new roof is one of those home improvement projects that yields a very favorable return on investment (ROI). If you are planning to sell your home in the next few years, having a new roof installed today with a transferable warranty not only adds a considerable amount of curb appeal, but increases the resale value of your home. Most homeowners typically recoup more than the amount they invested in their new roof.
Pro Tip: The quality of your roof replacement depends largely on the contractor you choose for the job. Maximize your investment and benefits by avoiding fly-by-night contractors, and choose instead a licensed, fully-insured, Master Elite installer like Queen City Roofing.
3. An Increase in Curb Appeal
A sturdy, weathertight roof can not only prevent you from having extensive and expensive interior water damage, but can also boost the appearance of your home.
In fact, a residential roof often ranks among the most visible components of a home’s exterior, estimating about 40% of your home’s curb appeal. Cracked, curled, or missing shingles, take away from the beauty of your home. Installing a new roof can enhance your home’s visual appeal. For added impact, consider a designer color shingle to really make your home stand out.
