With winter in the rear view and spring in full bloom, it’s time to start thinking about all the summer projects, home remodeling and roofing services you put off until the more temperate climates returned. While the exact project you decide to embark on will largely depend on your specific needs and situation, we’ll be discussing roof repair in this piece. Aside from the foundation, the roof is one of the most important aspects of any home and requires proper attention.
Every year, the roof contracting industry rakes in approximately $46 billion of revenue in the United States. It might be time for you to open up your wallet and contribute to that number, as roofing repairs are not only important structurally, but can save you time and money in the long run, too. Here are three reasons to consider investing in roofing repairs this summer.
- Winter Maintenance: Whether you endured a particularly harsh winter or not doesn’t change the fact that a number of things could have been damaged or simply worn down through normal wear and tear. It’s never a bad idea to have a professional roofing company come to check your roof and give you an estimate of any potential issues, damage, or general maintenance concerns.
- Increase Value: In the same way that a replacement steel door or replacement front door averages about a 97.2% return on investment (ROI), a new or restored roof can have the same type of value in building equity in your home. Whether you plan on living there for years to come or are already in the market for something new, ensuring that your roof is in tip-top shape can go a long way in increasing and maintaining your home’s value.
- Energy and Cost Efficiency: In addition to the value a new or repaired roof can have on your home, there are immediate monetary benefits too. Namely, the increase in energy efficiency and resulting effect it can have on your energy bill. Even the smallest crack, leak, or bit of damage can have a big impact on you monthly expenses. Investing in roofing repairs and maintenance early also means that there is a much less likely chance that a small issue will turn into something major and cost you even more.
Finally, if you do decide to have work done on your roof, one of the most important things to remember is to not install a new one on top of the old. This can reduce the lifespan of the new roof by as much as 20%!
