A new roof is not an investment that many homeowners want to make. They’d much rather redo the driveway, or paint the outside of the house, something cheap and easy. But there are many benefits to getting a new roof and if done correctly it could last you 50 years or more. So here are the benefits of a new roof.
A new roof immediately increases the value of your home. It also comes with a high return on investment (the average is 67%).
Over the last couple decades, roofs have become more energy efficient. There’s a big chance that your old roof does not have these benefits, which will cost your in heating and cooling costs.
The roof takes up a major part of the outside of the home, so it’s only natural that it should increase curb appeal by as much as 40%.
Good for Your Health
I’m not messing with you. A new roof could be good for your health as it helps prevent hazards like mold and mildew. An old roof could be hoarding mold and mildew and harming your family. We know that it may seem like a big investment, but a new roof pays for itself over and over again.
