Four Reasons to Replace Your Roof

  1. Repair Storm Damage

Storms can damage roofing in a variety of ways. High winds can blow the finished roofing entirely off the roof. Blow-off damage typically occurs in a section of the roof or on an entire side of the roof that was exposed to the highest winds. Roofing felt and roof sheathing can also be blown away by severe winds.

Storms and high winds can also indirectly damage a roof by causing tree limbs and entire trees to fall on it. Structural damage from the impact can range from small punctures in the roofing and roof sheathing to the complete collapse of the roof or roof section. Instead of making spot repairs, it may be smarter to replace the roof.

  1. Increase Home Value

Replacing your roof can increase your home’s curb appeal and value. Some homeowners install new roofing when preparing to sell a house. Experienced real estate professionals indicate that most people can expect to recoup 65% to 70% of their investment in comparison to other home remodeling projects. Roof replacement will also improve your home’s insulation and energy efficiency – both features that matter to buyers. Roof replacement can actually make an older home look brand new.

  1. Replace a Worn Roof

These red flags may be an indication of a potentially serious roof problem:

  • Shingles or tiles are cracked, curled, worn or missing
  • Split wood shingles
  • Mold, moss or algae growth
  • Leaks, stains or spotting on interior ceilings
  • Streaks along exterior home walls
  • Broken or damaged roof flashing
  • Expired roof warranties
  • A roof that is at least 20 years old

If your roof has any of these characteristics, it’s a good idea to replace the roof before structural damage occurs.

  1. Remodel

Are you adding on to your home? Do you plan to add dormers or skylights? These major remodeling projects involve significant changes to your roofline. Instead of ending up with an unattractive mix of new and old roofing, many homeowners decide to make total roof replacement part of the remodeling project.
