5 Reasons to Consider Roof Replacement

There’s something special about the roof over your head, so why not treat it to a facelift? This winter, move forward with roof replacement as your next home remodeling project. Here are five things to keep in mind:

1. Get More Bang for Your Buck:

Ah, tax season. With the scramble to collect documents and filing of forms, comes the moment we’ve all been waiting for: an income tax refund. As tempting as it is to cash out on something luxurious, perhaps the most important investment you can make with your hard-earned money is to place it back into your humble abode – specifically, your roof.

A residential roof replacement varies in price, depending on the size of the home and roofing materials used. Though your tax refund may not be able to cover the entire cost of roof replacement, it will assist in covering necessary roof maintenance. In turn, your investment in your roof will be returned if you wish to sell in the future.

2. The Weather’s on Your Side:

Aside from the additional chunk of change, tax season coincides with another break for Florida residents: the weather finally drops below 80 degrees. Hurricane season officially ends Nov. 30, and risk to South Florida in November drops significantly as cool, dry air from the north stops the development of tropical depressions, storms, and hurricanes in their tracks.

The onset of Florida winter allows a perfect timeframe to allow work to be completed on the outside of the home, without fear of storms or heavy summer rain delaying progress. With shutters safely packed away, work can begin and continue smoothly, ensuring an efficient process.

3. Avoid Excess Heating Bills:

Here in Florida, we tend to rely on air-conditioning a lot more than we do heat. Regardless, to keep a home at the optimal temperature, the home has to be structurally sound. On the rare occasion we turn on the heat, holes or drafts in your roof will allow hot air to rise straight out of the home, and cooler air to find it’s way in. This battle of the elements typically has one loser: your wallet.

Roof replacement assures that your home will retain the warm or cool air that you’re trying to trap inside. Essentially, it’s the home remodeling project that your thermostat will thank you for.

Exterior Tends to Get Forgotten:

Though it might be tempting to splurge on a new television or bathroom remodel, remember that despite spending a majority of time inside of your home, it’s truly the exterior that keeps you safe. Before jumping into interior remodels, consider that your home is only secure as it is on the exterior.

Your roof gets quite a beating during its lifetime: Asphalt roof shingles typically last anywhere from 15 to 25 years. Unfortunately, factors such as storm damage can significantly shorten the life of any asphalt roof. It’s crucial to tend to the less glamorous aspects of your home, like your roof gutters, to ensure that your home remains in mint condition.

Home Value in Curb Appeal:

A good home is like a good book: just as enticing on the inside as it is on the cover. When planning your next home remodeling project, keep in mind the look and style of your roofing. “The average roof comprises 40 percent of a home’s visible exterior,” (Better Homes & Gardens) which equates to the overall aesthetic of your home. If you’re trying to improve the current curb appeal of your home, consider upgrading your roof.
