Ringing in the Facts: Your Home’s Roof Replacement
According to the National Association of Realtors, every shingle matters, especially when it comes to the return on your investment. Should the day come for you to paint the town red and sell your house, a residential roof replacement may see you recover more than you put in, with a potential recovery rate of over 100%. This makes your roof more than just a hat for your house, it’s an investment in the value of your property.
Is your Roof on Its Last Legs?
When deciding if a new roof installation is in your future, one of your first ports of call will likely be assessing the condition of your current roof. Every roof has its day, but asphalt shingle roofs clock in with a lifespan of around 20 years, with variables like quality of installation, regular maintenance, and the tantrums of Mother Nature playing pivotal roles.
Inspecting for Roof Damage and Wear
Pull out the magnifying glass and dust off your detective cap; it’s time for some roof inspection. Keep a keen eye out for cracked or curling shingles, areas with missing shingle granules, or penetrations in the roofing material. Visible signs of a sagging roof or leak stains inside your house can also indicate big trouble in little shingles.
Making the Call for Roof Replacement
Realising your roof has taken its final bow isn’t a joyful jubilation for anyone, but fear not, brave homeowner – knowledge and a plan will pave your path to a shiny new roof. The road to successful roof replacement starts with an awareness of your roofing material options, understanding the replacement process and knowing when to call on the help of the professionals.
