Signs Your Home Needs A New Roof
Questioning how you can know that you need to replace your roof? There are a couple tell-tale signs that it’s time to look at making the investment:
- More Than 20 Years Old: Most roofs have a life expectancy of about 20 years. That means when you hit that two-decade mark, you should start looking at having your roof replaced. Even if there is no obvious damage or leaks that you’ve noticed, you should at the very least have your roof inspected.
- Major Damage: Major damage is an obvious reason to replace your roof. However, you have to calculate all the damage that your roof has sustained over the years. Some areas of the country have such wild weather patterns that the onslaught of the seasons year after year is enough to add up to major damage.
- Leaks: Another fairly easy-to-spot sign that your roof needs to be repaired or completely replaced is leaking. The drip-drip-drip of a leak is not only annoying, it could be hazardous to your health and put your safety at risk. If you’re noticing leaks, it’s likely a sign of damage and water is seeping in. This can undermine the integrity of your roof as a whole the longer you let the problem go uninspected.
Benefits Of A New Roof
When you drive by a house and it catches your eye for all the right reasons, that’s the home’s curb appeal. If an otherwise pristine home has an old, tattered roof, it throws off the curb appeal. The aesthetic of your home is important, not only for its resell value but for your pride as a homeowner. And did you know that roofing makes up about 40 percent of your home’s curb appeal? That means nearly half of the reason people stop and take an interest in a home has to do with the roofing, whether they realize it or not. By giving your home an upgrade, you can change the overall look of your home for the better.
As a homeowner, you likely keep yourself well aware of your home’s value. It’s how you make a return on your real estate investment and it’s how you will make your next move to a bigger and better house. To maximize your home’s value, you have to take your roof into account. A new roof can actually increase your home’s value by about 5 percent! So, if your home is valued at $500,000 before replacing your roof, you could stand to increase your home’s value by $25,000. Why wouldn’t you want $25,000 in value? It’s an easy way to make your home’s value jump significantly.
Every month, you are paying for the electricity you use. You may not even think about the number, you just pay the bill and move on with your life. But what if you could reduce your energy costs? A new roof might be the answer. When your roof has cracks and holes, it can lead to a significant loss of energy. That forces your artificial systems – like your heating system or air conditioning – to work overtime to keep your home feeling comfortable. In doing so, your energy costs are shooting through that old roof. On the flip side, a new roof can improve your home’s energy efficiency in a dramatic way, saving you money every month that will add up, letting you live your best life a little more comfortably.
When you have an older roof, it’s important to know that your roof is more susceptible to damage from high winds, storms, hail, and even temperature. And on any roof, even a small leak could grow into a huge problem if left unrepaired. With most new roofs having a life expectancy of around 20 years – though some have a life expectancy as high as 30 years – you can expect your roof to take on the elements thousands of times. How many of those times will lead to damage? That damage that is bound to happen could mean that your roof is more likely to collapse, your home is more likely to be drafty, and you’re more likely to be exposed to mold. To mitigate these safety issues, you could simply replace your roof and reset the clock.
Peace of Mind
Chances are you don’t often think about your roof until there’s a problem. Day in and day out, it does its job while you live your life underneath it. But suddenly there’s a leak or a high wind storm. Suddenly, you’re constantly worried about the damage to your roof. You’re thinking about that damage and wondering how bad it’s getting. To regain your peace of mind, all you need to do is replace your roof. With a brand new roof, there’s no more wondering how well your roof is doing its job, there’s just security that you have the best above your head.
Return on Investment
As you consider replacing your roof, you are likely worried about the price. It’s one of the things most likely to make you change your mind on the whole process. But think about the return on investment. You save money every month through the energy efficiency you get with a new roof. Your home’s value increases by about 5 percent. Your home is more sellable because the curb appeal will have been improved by about 40 percent. And with a new roof, you don’t have to worry about repairs for a while. All of these things add up to a major return on your roofing investment. In fact, it’s estimated that with a quality roofing system, homeowners can expect about a 70% return on their investment, meaning they would get back 70 percent of the money they spent on the new roof. So, as you are budgeting for a new roof, take into consideration how much you’re getting back, both financially and insecurity.
