The Positive Impact of a Roofing Remodel
 
 
Replacing the roof of your home is often a necessary project. All roofs have limited life spans and they should be properly maintained and replaced as needed. There are several positive impacts to replacing your roofing.

Future Repairs/ Expenses

While replacing your roof is a big expense, it is not something that can be avoided. If a deficient roofing system is ignored it will only lead to bigger problems down the road. A small leak will grow larger and over time can cause the roof to cave in. This disaster will be a huge expense and headache to repair, including replacing drywall and insulation, any furniture and flooring in the affected area, and more. Not to mention the safety risk it poses to members of your family if they were inside the home at the time. Over time, even a tiny leak can cause water damage in your attic and contribute to mold and mildew. Thus, replacing your roof before large problems can take hold is beneficial to you.

Financial/Re-Sale Impact

If you are trying to sell your home and your roof needs replacing, chances are any prospective buyer will ask you to replace it as part of their offer to purchase. Some prospective buyers will not even consider a home where such a large repair needs to be done. They may feel there are other hidden problems with the home, or simply do not want to wait until the work is complete. If a buyer is not requesting the roof be replaced, they will probably offer you significantly less than your home is worth. Either way you lose money. Even if your home is not on the market at the moment, at some point in time there is a good chance it will be. Having a new roof in place will keep you one step ahead in the market and ensure your home is sellable. It will also increase the value of your home, as prospective buyers will know that they won’t have to replace the roof for many years to come.

Environmental Effect

If you are replacing the roofing on your home you have a great opportunity to incorporate some eco-friendly features into your new roof. Solar panels are gaining in popularity and their costs have come down in recent years. Installing solar panels on your roof allows you to harvest energy from the sun, store it, and use it as your household needs its. Excess energy can sometimes be sold back to your utility company. The money you will save on your monthly power bills will help to offset the cost of the solar panels over time. Another new eco-friendly trend is roof top gardens. Gardens containing trees, shrubs, plants, herbs and even vegetables are planted on the roof. This extra layer of protection above your roof can help maintain constant temperatures inside, thus reducing your heating and cooling bills. A roof top garden can be a welcome sanctuary and adds to the beauty of your home.

Curb Appeal

One last positive benefit of remodeling the roofing of your home is how it will contribute to the curb appeal of your home. No one likes to drive down the road and see shingles flapping or wavy rooflines. Replacing the roofing will correct these problems and add a fresh, new look to your home.
