The Benefits of Upgrading to a New Roof System for Your Home

The Benefits of Upgrading to a New Roof System for Your Home

Is it time for a new roof for your home? If you’re finding yourself stuck with a lot of repairs that are adding up, if it’s out of warranty, or if you don’t even know how old it is because it’s been on the house so long, it may be time. Homeowners often aren’t in a hurry to undertake the expense of a new roof, but the truth is that you’ll get more benefits from a new roof system than you probably realize, and you don’t want to wait until the roof is so degraded that you absolutely can’t put it off any longer. It’s better to do it when it’s still convenient for you and you can plan for it rather than wait until it’s an emergency. Take a look at some of the things that you should know about installing a new roof.

Protect Your Health

Installing a new roof now can protect your family’s health or help you feel better now. 

Did you know that a new roof can be an investment in your general health and well-being? Your roof keeps the elements out of your house – notably, it keeps water out. If water is getting in, it can create mold growth very easily. You don’t need a dramatic leak or flood to develop mold growth; a small amount of moisture from a small, slow leak will do. The water combines with the mold spores and organic material that are everywhere in your home, and within a few days, you have growth that’s potentially risky for your or your family’s health, especially if anyone in the home has respiratory illnesses or allergies.

The older your roof is, the weaker it is, and the more likely leaks are to appear. Installing a new roof shores up your defenses and protects against negative health effects.

Increase Your Energy Efficiency

You may be spending more money on energy than you have to just because your roof is old. Even if the roof isn’t noticeably leaking water, it may have an air leak or have lost its ability to reflect heat away from your home. This raises the internal temperature in the house, causing your climate control system and appliances to work harder to maintain the temperatures you want.

While the expense of a new roof may cause you to hesitate, discovering that your energy bills have decreased can help soften the blow. Installation methods and roofing materials are constantly improving, so chances are good that your new roof will be more energy efficient for longer than your old one was.

Lower Your Insurance Premiums

Speaking of saving money, your homeowner’s insurance is another expense you may be able to mitigate with a new roof. A new roof – with a new warranty — will better protect your home from the kinds of disasters and damages that a homeowner’s insurance company would have to pay out for. That’s why it’s the kind of home improvement that can earn you a reduction in your home insurance premiums.

If you’re looking for ways to save money, this is a good one. Not only will you have fewer worries about your home’s ability to stand up to a disaster or damaging event, but your insurance company will also have fewer worries as well, and they’ll reward you for it.

Boost Your Resale Value

Keeping your property values up is an important consideration when you’re thinking about home improvements. Whether or not you’re thinking about selling right now, the value of your property has an effect on many things.

And when you do eventually want to sell, the ability to produce proof that the roof has been replaced recently and has an active warranty will put you head and shoulders above other sellers who have older, unwarrantied roofs. Buyers want to know that they aren’t just buying someone else’s problems – everyone has heard horror stories about that. Roofs are one of the big potential problems that can come with a recently purchased home, so if you can put minds at ease by showing off a new roof, you’ll have an easier time selling.

Improve Your Curb Appeal

Give your home a makeover with a gorgeous new roof. 

Keeping your curb appeal up also helps sell a house. Buyers will be more likely to stop by in the first place if your home looks good from the outside, and a new roof can have a lot to do with making a home look good.

Increased curb appeal is also good for other things, like keeping you in the good graces of your HOA as well as your own personal satisfaction.

What Are Your Options?

Homeowners who want a new roof have plenty of options. You’re not obligated to replace your roof with exactly the same one you had before. Take a look at some common roofing choices and why you should consider them.

  • Asphalt Shingles – These are common all over the country because they’re accessible, affordable, and durable, as well as easy to install and maintain. What’s more, they offer a lot of variety, allowing you to make your house look any way you want it to.
  • Metal – Metal roofs have been around for a long time, but if you like your home to have a modern, contemporary look, they’re a good choice. You get a lot for your money when you choose a metal roof, because it can last a long time. They’re also low-maintenance and can be made to imitate the look of slate, wood, or even asphalt shingles.
  • Clay Tiles – Although these are somewhat pricier than other types of roofing materials, they’re long-lasting, so you’ll get a lot of bang for your buck. These roofs are popular in hotter climates because they help regulate indoor temperatures. They’re also highly wind and fire-resistant, so they’re a real boon to safety-conscious homeowners.

1 Million+ Satisfied Customers Nationwide

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
