A new roof will add new life to your home. Whether damaged by nature or just worn out over time, your old roof can be much more than just an eyesore. In addition to making your house susceptible to leaks and water damage, your old roof is probably costing you money in wasted energy. Today we take a look at some of the advantages of installing new roofing, and how hiring a licensed and responsible roofing contractor can add major value to your home.
A new roof adds curb appeal
If you're thinking about selling your home, a new roof can be a tremendous asset. Put yourself in the shoes of a potential buyer. Would you be more likely to buy a home with a brand new roof or a home in need of a roof replacement within the next few years? A new roof can also add a great deal of "curb appeal" to your home and thus increase its potential sales price. Take a look at this shake shingle roof installation in Hernando County that Nations Roofing recently completed. Can you imagine the difference in seeing a roof like this versus an old roof could potentially make with a prospective buyer?
Avoid roadblocks when selling your home
A new roof can also save you the massive headache of dealing with building inspection issues. A home's roof is one of the most visible components of the structure, and is likely to be heavily scrutinized during the inspection process. Installing a new roof on your home can help you avoid potential roadblocks when selling.
In addition to the added value to your home, a new roof installation will save you money and help to alleviate stress in other ways. As we mentioned previously, your old roof may be costing you big money in wasted energy. The asphalt roof shingles featured in the photo above are designed with "cool roof technology" and even have an ENERGY STAR® rating. These shingles reflect heat from the sun instead of absorbing it. The end result is less heat being trapped in your home...and a reduction in your energy bill.
How Much Will It Cost?
You will have to pay for a new roof. While I realize this is a shocking revelation, it is the truth and it is important to understand what your costs will be going into any project. According to this survey conducted by HomeAdvisor.com, most homeowners in the United States can expect to pay between $5,347 and $10,539 for a brand new roof. This number can fluctuate of course, depending on the pitch of the roof and the materials used. We here at Nations Roofing realize that this is no small chunk of change, which is why we do our best to provide you with the highest quality materials and craftsmanship in the business.
Without doubt, having a new roof installed is a major investment, but it will increase the value of your house dramatically. It can also save you money on your energy bill and a great deal of stress when going through the inspection process.
