If the thought of replacing your roof sends chills up your spine, you’re not alone. It’s an investment that would make most homeowners take a pause. Plus, it’s not as sexy as, say a kitchen remodel.
Sure, a new roof will protect your home from the elements, but what other benefits can you expect from this major home improvement project? A new roof can do much more for your home than keep out the rain—as long as the job is done right.
While you may think a roof replacement may not be the flashiest upgrade. It’s without a doubt one of the most critical steps you can take in safeguarding the structural integrity or your home.
But the fact of the matter is a great roof does more than keeping the inside of house dry. It makes your whole home…better.
Enhanced Energy Efficiency
Metal roofing can have a significant impact on a home’s energy consumption, especially in the summer. Specially formulated paint pigments applied to the metal create “cool roofs,” or surfaces that reflect and emit the sun’s energy rather than soaking in the heat and trapping it in the attic.
With cool roof technology available from suppliers like DYMI Construction a homeowner could see energy savings of up to 40 percent.
Additionally, because the cooling units in these homes don’t have to work as hard to keep interiors at a comfortable temperature, there is the potential to actually extend the lifespan of your HVAC—ultimately saving you from shelling out extra money for a replacement.
As part of any roof replacement, competent installers like those of DYMI Construction, assess your attic to confirm that rising warm air can easily escape.
In addition, they offer attic insulation and radiant barrier installation to help ensure that your energy costs don’t go through your brand new roof.
Few homeowners appreciate that a sturdy, weathertight roof not only prevent extensive, expensive water damage but also boosts the curb appeal of your home.
In fact, the roof often ranks among the most visible components of a home’s exterior. Those cracked, curled, or missing shingles aren’t doing you any favors.
For a roof that looks the worse for wear, reroofing can actually present a valuable opportunity. “If you have the help you need to make the right choices.
A quality roofing installer will guide you through the entire roof replacement process, all the way from deciding on materials through to the final day of installation.
They can even help you decide which style and color will best complement your house. In the end, you get a new roof that not only performs exceptionally well but looks great.
Higher Resale Value
Homeowners aren’t the only ones who know that roof replacement comes at a premium. House hunters know too.
That’s why many prospective buyers walk away from homes that would soon be in need of an expensive new roof.
If you’re a home seller, however, the same equation can work to your advantage. That is, the upgrade doesn’t simply take a bite out of your bottom line. On the contrary, it often adds a considerable amount to the resale value of your home.
On resale, homeowners typically recoup more than half the amount invested in a new roof.
A new roof is a big investment: Don’t make the mistake of settling for the first roofing company you run across. The quality of your roof replacement depends largely on the contractors you choose for the job.
