What Are the Advantages of Roof Replacement?Is your roof looking a little worse for wear? Does it constantly allow water into your home? Or do you just want your new house to be perfect? Whatever your motivation, a roof replacement is a great solution.

First and foremost, roof replacements help to protect your property from the outdoor elements. But there are several other advantages of installing a brand-new roof…

Increased property value

One of the most obvious benefits of replacing your existing roof is the extra value it adds to your home. While a new roof can be costly, the increased value of your property will make up for it in the long run. Consider it an investment. When the time comes to sell your home, a new, well-installed roof can add thousands onto the valuation price.

Improved kerb appeal

A tired, worn roof can impact the overall look of your property. Missing tiles, failing flashing and worn fascia and soffits can leave your home looking neglected and unattractive. In contrast, a newly installed roof adds a modern, clean and well-maintained look to your property. Choose a roofing material in keeping with the local environment and ask for samples to ensure you like the finished results.

Peace of mind

Perhaps the biggest benefit of replacing your property’s roof is the peace of mind that comes with it. With no need to worry about leaks, breakages or damages for years to come, you can feel safe and secure in your own home. If you choose a roofing company with an extended guarantee, you’ll be protected against small damages for as long as the guarantee is valid.

Save money

Spending money on a roof replacement in order to save money may seem counterproductive. But the better your roof, the cheaper your energy bills will be. By keeping the warm air in, and cold air out in the winter, you’ll find yourself putting the heating on far less. When installing a new roof, you can ensure it is properly insulated, adding extra loft insulation if necessary, to prevent draughts and cold spaces.

Better materials

With the long lifespan of roofs, chances are you’ve never had a replacement and may not even know the age of your current roof. Most roofs are decades old and it can show. Today, roofers have access to much better materials and advanced installation processes, meaning your roof will last longer and could be much more efficient than your existing roof.

Professional finish

When installing a new roof, you should ensure your contractor is experienced, knowledgeable and insured. The better your roofer and materials, the longer your new roof will last – and the more you’ll benefit.
