Is it time to replace your roof?
When To Replace Your Roof
Signs of an aging roof include sagging, leaks, missing tiles or shingles, moss and algae growth, age, or it’s just looking worn and you’re ready for a fresh look. If neighbors are getting new roofs and you live in a community where all the homes were built at the same time, it may be time for a roof inspection. If you don’t have problems yet, you may in the near future.
Benefits Of A New Roof
A new roof can instantly boost your home’s curb appeal. It can also improve your home’s energy-efficiency, increase comfort, and lower your utility bills. Today’s roofing materials vary widely and many are built to last 20 years or more when properly installed and maintained.
ROI Of A New Roof
New roofing is also one of the most valuable home improvement projects, with an average return on investment of around 68%. Whether you’re in your home for the long-run, or you’re planning to sell, a new roof is always a worthwhile investment that carries many benefits (both seen and unseen!).
Types Of New Roofing Materials:
- Shingles – The most common and affordable type of roofing material, asphalt/composition shingles last about 15-20 years, while fiber cement shingles will last about 25 years.
- Tile – Tile roofs can be made from fired clay, terra cotta, or slate, but most today are made from colored concrete and can last as long as 50 years.
- Metal – Once only popular in tropical areas, metal roofs are quickly growing in popularity in modern and farmhouse design. Depending on the quality of the metal and installation, they can last 40-70 years.
- Flat – Flat roofs are popular in ultra modern and contemporary architecture. When the underlayer and top coat are installed correctly, flat roofs are an economical and attractive option, but the materials will need to be replaced every 10-15 year.
