As the new year begins, we reflect on the changes we have made over the past year and rededicate to doing better this year. Many times, New Year’s Resolutions are lofty goals, which are difficult to meet. However, with focus and persistence, our goals can be met. Success begins with the first step.
What about focusing on your property and home this coming year? Do you consider how improving your home can benefit you in the coming year, and beyond? Some worthwhile goals may be to upgrade appliances, redo a dated bathroom, or new paint in the kid’s rooms. A roof replacement may also be something to ponder as you focus on 2023.
How do you know if it’s time to replace your current roofing system? Here are some things to look for:
- Missing, damaged, or curled shingles
- The roof has outlived its lifespan
- Sagging roofline
- Granules are found in the gutter system
- Mold and moss are evident on the shingle surface
- Increase in heating and cooling energy bills
So, you have determined it is time to get a new roof. What are some of the reasons and benefits you will discover?
Increased Home Value
A new roof can bring increased value to your property. According to Remodeling Magazine, a new roof can boost your home value by $12,000. Asphalt shingles offer a huge variety of colors and styles to choose from, and are budget-friendly. Perhaps you are looking to upgrade from an asphalt roof to metal?
Metal roofing has earned the title of “Cadillac of Roofing” because it is highly durable, low maintenance, and fire and water-resistant. These are excellent qualities in a roofing system! Regardless of the type of roofing system you choose, a new roof can increase the value and curb appeal of your home.
Improve Energy Efficiency
Are your monthly bills becoming larger than you desire? Perhaps a new roof with additional insulation can improve your home’s energy efficiency. A variety of ENERGY-STAR roofing options are available and should be considered when deciding on a new roof.
Selling Your Home
Is 2023 the year you plan to move? If your current roof is showing its age, upgrading to a new system will be more appealing to a potential buyer, as well as increase the value of your home. The exterior of your home is the first impression to a potential buyer, so make it a good one!
As discussed above, is your roof showing signs of damage, sagging rooflines, water stains, missing shingles, and ice dams in the winter months? These are all evidence of a less-than-perfect working roof. You can only know the true extent of any damage by having your roof professionally inspected. A qualified roofing contractor will be able to assess all damage and offer sound advice on the steps you need to take.
