Top 4 Reasons You Should Upgrade Your Roof
Although a home inspection was part likely part of the process in your home purchase, it may not have been done by a licensed roofing contractor. Because of this, we recommend having an inspection. This protects you in several ways. Should you have any existing damage not spotted in the inspection, you can have it repaired. More importantly, if you end up with storm damage, you will have proof for your insurance company that your home’s roof was in top shape prior to the storm. If, however, your roof is in need of repair or roof replacement doing so shortly after moving in will make sure your home remains comfortable, energy-efficient, and protected from the elements for many years to come.
A roof upgrade can…
1. increase energy efficiency. Certain materials today reflect heat away from your home, lowering your energy consumption. ENERGY STAR–certified roofing products can give you up to 15% of energy savings. At ABC Roofing, you can get energy-efficient shingles from GAF, the leading manufacturer of commercial and residential roofing in North America.
2. improve ventilation. The buildup of heat in the attic spreads through parts of the house directly beneath the attic, making them less comfortable. But with proper insulation and air sealing, your home will remain warm during winter and cool during summer. The soffit vents under the roof eaves will draw cool air into the attic and let out hot air.
3. extend the roof’s life span. Today’s high-quality roofing materials are more durable. Metal and slate can protect your home from all kinds of elements. Some roofing materials can last up to 50 or more years if maintained properly.
4. add to property value. According to Remodeling magazine’s “2015 Cost Vs. Value Report,” roof replacement had returns of up to 71.6%. With industry-leading materials from GAF, ABC Roofing will make sure that you get your money’s worth.
