Installing a new roof on your home can be an expensive investment. However, it is an investment worth making. There are few things more important than your home’s structural integrity and the safety and security of your family.
We understand that investing in a new roof can be costly, but the good news is that your new roof can actually help you save money in the long run.
Heating and Cooling Bills
A new roof can help save you money on your heating and cooling costs by making your home more energy-efficient. Often, older roofs are less efficient because they were built using outdated materials with low solar reflectance, low emittance, and which can break down over time. Roof color, energy rating, and type of material used all affect the efficiency of your roof. To learn more about improving your home’s energy efficiency, contact a JACO consultant today.
Increase Home Value
A new roof may also help increase your home’s value. If you want to make a good first impression with potential buyers, a new roof is the way to do it. A home that has a damaged roof will likely scare away buyers. Indeed, sellers may be forced to reduce the sales price of their home when the roof is old or in poor condition. The condition of a roof is one of the top things that buyers consider when purchasing a home. Often, buyers are more inclined to pay more for a home with a new roof than pay less for a home with a roof that needs to be replaced.
Third, a new roof offers better protection from damage. The newer, high tech roofing materials available now can help keep your family and your home safe with the improved overall durability of your home. Older roofs with loose shingles, holes, and rotting wood are more susceptible to storm, tree and other damage.
Cheaper to Maintain
Fourth, a new roof costs less to repair and maintain. Indeed, often it is difficult to find roofing materials to match older roofs. Repairs can be noticeable and reduce the curb appeal for your home. Because the older materials are scarce, they may be more expensive.
