A new roof is one of the best investments you’ll ever make. It boosts your home’s curb appeal, it improves your home’s protection against the elements, and it helps make your indoor space more comfortable. But more importantly, a timely roof replacement installed by reliable roofers can result in significant savings in the long run. Let us tell you more about what these savings are.
Better Homeowner Insurance Rates
Roofing may not have changed much in terms of looks – in fact, being able to mimic traditional roofing is a plus – but the underlying technologies have taken leaps and bounds in terms of under-the-hood improvements over the years. For instance, traditional roofing felts has been replaced by underlayment material with advanced properties that allow moisture to evaporate while the installation processes are optimized towards improving wind resistance.
In addition to the benefits endowed by a strong and durable roof, these improvements have a positive impact on homeowner insurance rates, which means better insurance premiums and/or better payout in case of storm damage. Also, roofs installed by reputable roofing companies like ourselves have warranty coverage that avoids the need for insurance claims.
Lower Roof Repair Costs
Speaking of wind resistance, if your roof replacement budget allows for upgrading to asphalt shingle products with higher wind ratings, go for it. In the event that your area does get hit by a storm, not only do you have the peace of mind knowing your home is safe and sound, but you are also much less likely to spend money on unplanned roof repairs.
A new roof is also an opportunity to improve on your attic insulation as well as to choose roofing materials with what is known as “cool roof” features. Cool roofs work the same way as wearing light-colored clothing on a hot day. It reflects sunlight up back to the source as well as radiating already-absorbed heat. This helps reduce your indoor cooling requirements during hot days, resulting in lower monthly energy bills.
