Your roof could easily be the biggest investment you make in your home. Ever. So
there’s a lot on the line.
Here are 3 things to consider before undertaking a total roof replacement, and why they
should matter to every homeowner.
3 Things You Need To Know Before You Replace Your Roof
#1. Roof Replacements can Instantly Add Value
Having a new roof installed by industry professionals drives up the value of your home
and instantly boosts curb appeal. Tired, damaged roofing reflects badly on your home.
It also impacts your roof’s resilience to water damage. Water seeping into your home
can lead to harmful mold growth and make your loved ones sick.
A roof replacement may cost you in the short term—with the nationwide average sitting
at around $7,900—but the return can be significant. Not only can you feel confident that
your home and family are protected from the elements, but you could potentially add up
to $12,000 to the sale value of your home.
#2. Your New Roof Can Last Decades
Depending on the roofing solution you choose, your roof could last over 50 years.
Asphalt shingle roofs typically last up to 25 years, with fiber cement shingles having a
slightly longer lifespan. Slate, tile, and copper roofing solutions can last for 50
years—often stretching out much longer than that.
To help your new roof last as long as possible, undertake proper maintenance, ensure
your home is properly ventilated, avoid letting tree branches hang over your home, and
keep guttering clear.
#3. This is a Job for the Experts
A reputable roofing company is the key to getting the best value for money and the
strongest, most durable outcome from your roof replacement.
An experienced roofer can guide you in choosing the right roofing products, finishing the
roofing project effectively, and checking product and service warranties for your peace
As an added bonus, a reputable roofing company can carry out a roofing inspection to
determine if a full roof replacement is really your best option.
