House & Garden

  • Written by News Company
As a homeowner, what comes into your mind when you think about home improvement is having a roof replacement. Sometimes, you find no apparent reasons to replace your top. Roof replacement represents a significant investment and impacts the appearance of the house. You should ask yourself a few questions to determine whether you need a new rooftop, like do you want to sell the house? Do you want to rent out your home? Or is your rooftop more than 15 years old? You should carry out a roof inspection to determine the severity of the damages. The check will tell whether you need a roof replacement or some repairs. The longer you wait before addressing the damage, the issue gets severer, and the cost of repair keeps rising. The following are ideas to help you elevate your home through roof management.

 

 

 

1. Severe Storm Damage

You should have a thorough roof inspection after the occurrence of a severe storm. The process will tell what your roof requires to prevent more costs in the long run. A strong wind can throw three branches, rocks, and other debris to your rooftop. The materials tear away shingles leaving bare patches that will need replacement immediate effectively. Heavy hails can punch holes through the shingles, dismantle vents, and cause other severe damages. You should not underestimate the occurrence of a strong storm that can destroy the basic structure of your rooftop.

 

2. Learn Signs of a Premature Aging of a Roof

A well-maintained roof should last not less than 15 to 20 years. However, the lifespan of the roof can shorten due to invasion by molds and moss, damage from storms, and other disasters. The results of the occurrence of such damages to the roof will show the same signs as those when reaching the end of the natural lifespan. Therefore, when you see some of these signs, you should have your rooftop inspected. Try someone who has a history of great roofing work. You can try it with Sutherland Rekote Roofing to know whether the condition is repairable or you need a roof replacement. Because the sooner you know it, the less money you’re going to spend.

 

3. Increase Your Home Value

A homeowner should replace the roof to boost the value when thinking about selling the house. The process shows preparation when going back to the market even though the roof is some years short of the expected lifespan. The installation of a new roof brightens the appearance of an old house. Therefore, the owner feels comfortable when inviting new friends and family members for happy moments in the compound. The owner will get the amount he or she asks as the value of the house when there are no repairs required on the roof. Also, the shining appearance will attract the eyes of many prospective buyers.

 

4. You Handle the Insurance

Still, on saving money, the insurance adjuster knows the period you take before doing roof repairs. Therefore, you will have a tough time to get the insurance company giving you full compensation if you do not address the roof damages the soonest. Instead, the company will pay value-cost equal to the rate of repairing ordinary damages. Therefore, living you at the risk of digging deeper into your pocket to handle the excess expenses.

 

5. Air Quality

The presence of humid and water gives the favourable condition for the growth of moss and molds. Apart from making holes on the shingles, the microorganisms interfere with the quality of air in the house posing health risks to the family members. People suffer from allergies and instances of cold that are costlier than replacing holes on the shingles.

 

6. Other Related Costs

When algae invade roof shingles, the granules attain dark colour. The dark matter attracts heat during summer making the house too hot. Therefore, you keep the air conditioners running for many hours in a day. During winter, the house gets too cold, and you need to keep the heaters running throughout the day. The utility bill rises in the long run. New roofing will save you from the unnecessary expenditure.
