Replacing a roof isn’t cheap, but when the return is greater than the investment, it can really take the stress out of the decision. Whether you’re in the position to sell your home or simply just want to upgrade it, a new roof is a great way to increase your home’s value as well as its energy efficiency.
While many people know the obvious benefits of a new roof, today’s blog is going to be about some of the under-the-radar, secret benefits of putting a new lid on your home. Let’s jump right in!
Improved energy efficiency
Metal roofs have come a long way in the past 15 years even, so much so that installing one can save significant money month to month when it comes to heating bills. Metal roofs maintain temperature far better than normal roofs do. That means a warmer home in the winter and a cooler home in the summer – just the way you want it. Overall, that just means a more balanced, more comfortable environment in your home.
As roofs get older, they become less effective at protecting the inside and outside of your home. Interiors can become more susceptible to damage from things like ice, snow and rain seeping inside. That can lead to structural issues or even mold in tough to get to places. A metal roof will help reduce the risks of things like this happening – keeping moisture at bay in the event of a severe storm.
Even on the exterior, things like hale and high winds can tear shingles off your home and greatly increase the chances of roof failure. Metal roofs eliminate this threat almost entirely and help to full proof your home vs extreme weather events. This will give you the peace of mind you should have, knowing that no matter how insane the weather might get, that you’ll be protected.
Higher than average ROI
A new metal roof will increase the value of your home significantly – and according to studies, the average asking price of a home can increase almost $12,000 immediately. This makes roofs one of the highest returns on investment you’ll get from any home improvement project. In addition, the new look will significantly boost your home’s curb appeal, making it a more attractive option to potential buyers.
We hope today’s blog helped bring your decision as to whether you should replace your roof or not come into a little bit clearer focus. If you’re interested in metal roof clips or any kind of metal roof components for your next project, then give us a call today. Until then, good luck!
