If you have been considering revamping your roof, a roof replacement is a great option for you to consider. Whether you are concerned for the structural integrity of your roof, the potential for leakage, or simply its aesthetic appeal, a roof replacement will satisfy your needs. A roof replacement will provide your home and your family with multiple benefits as it is the most important part of your house, and fulfils many duties. Your roof plays significant roles as part of your house, and should be treated as such. Here are some ways your home will benefit from a roof replacement.
If you have been neglecting getting your roof restored or repaired, you may end up spending a lot of money. If unknown and known minor damage does not get fixed as soon as possible, it is likely this damage will become a major issue. The longer you wait to get a roof repaired the more it will cost as there will be a greater amount of issues that need fixing. By the time you are finally ready to fix these issues, it may be cheaper to simply complete a full roof replacement.
Furthermore, having a roof replacement also prevents issues from occurring; it can eliminate the growth of mould, as well as ensuring your roof is watertight. By preventing these issues before they arise, you can save a lot of money that may otherwise be spent fixing water damage and the issues that water damage creates.
Increases the value of your home
Before being able to determine how much value will be added to your home from a roof replacement, you must first evaluate the current state of your roof. A damaged or poor-quality roof decreases your home’s value, and replacing it can significantly increase this value. A new roof will increase your home’s ‘curb appeal’, and if you plan to put your home on the market one day, this appeal will work to attract buyers to inspect the rest of your property.
Using good quality materials on your roof has a positive effect on your home’s value. Good quality cannot be forged. Just as you can expect to pay more for quality high fashion than you would at a second-hand store, you can expect a house with a good quality roof to be of higher value than a house with a damaged one. When potential buyers know that the roof is good quality, this assures them that the house will withstand all weather.
Your home becomes safer to live in
As the roof of your house is the area most exposed to all forms of weather, it is the area most likely to get damaged or worn. This damage can lead to leakages that encourage bacteria and mould to form, impacting your health. By replacing your roof and ensuring there is no damage or leakage, you are preventing these possible issues from happening.
An old and damaged roof poses serious safety concerns. Small cracks can quickly turn into large cracks under certain conditions, and ultimately risk flooding or even roof collapse. Regular maintenance, or a roof replacement not only increases the curb appeal and aesthetic of your home, but more importantly, it keeps your house staying safe to live in.
We are well practiced in roof replacements
It may be tempting to try and fix any small issues with your roof on your own (DIY), but this is a job best left to professionals. If you have an abundance of small issues you are neglecting it is possibly time to simply hire professionals for a roof replacement. By doing this, you will save yourself the time and labour needed to attempt fixing the issues yourself. We do not recommend attempting to fix or restore your roof on your own, as there are many elements involved in this process that professionals are trained to do. This process includes; inspecting the roof for faults, repairing any of those faults, cleaning the roof and gutters, re-bedding to ensure a watertight roof, another clean to remove grime or mould, sealing the roof with a primer, and then adding a protective layer that improves the overall appearance of your roof. If you attempt to carry these tasks out on your own, you could easily miss small issues that need repair, and it is likely you lack the correct tools and equipment needed to do a successful job. We urge you to consider hiring professionals when considering getting a roof repair or replacement on your house.
As you can see, there are many benefits to getting a professional roof replacement.
