New Year, Time for a New Roof! (2024)

The new year means a fresh start, so why not take this as an opportunity to replace or restore your roof? 

 

Updating your roof can be the first step to kicking goals for 2024. If your New Year’s Resolutions include renovating your home, then why not start with your roof? 

 

A new roof can bring many benefits to your home. Here are some reasons why you should think about getting a new roof for 2024: 

 

Improve Curb Appeal

Your roof has a big impact on the street appeal of your home. The roof is one of your home’s most prominent features, and it makes up a significant percentage of your home’s exterior. An old roof with missing shingles and moss growing on it makes the house look old and poorly maintained. A new roof is a great way to make your home look fresh and exciting. 

 

When you work with a roofing company to install your new roof, they can help you choose the right colour and style to match your home. The variety of colours, shapes, and designs, can breathe new life into your home.  

 

Add Value to your Home

A new roof also can add value to your home. It is worth the investment, because you will make your money back when you decide to sell your home. 

 

A new roof will make your home more attractive to potential buyers and allow you to sell at a higher price. It illustrates to buyers that your home is structurally sound, well-maintained, and protected from the elements. They will be more likely to purchase your home if they feel it won’t require much renovation. 

 

Improve your Home's Structural Integrity

One of the most important reasons to install a new roof is to protect your home’s structural integrity. An old, weak, or leaking roof can become unstable and then collapse, causing significant damage to your home.

 

Your roof is exposed to the elements everyday, and overtime, this can cause it to wear. As a roof ages it can become structurally unsound and unable to withstand the weather. If your roof has been damaged in a storm or is looking tired and worn, then you should consider getting it replaced. Being proactive and replacing an ageing roof is the best way to protect your home. 

 

Protect your Family's Health

If you have an old roof, it may be leaking, allowing water and moisture to creep into your home. Even if it’s only a small leak, it can cause mould and mildew to build up over time. A mouldy home can have impacts on your health, affecting your eyes, nose, throat and lungs. Replacing your roof will mean you can rest assured, knowing that your home is clean and dry. 

 

Improve Energy Efficiency

Installing a new roof can also help to improve your home’s energy efficiency. If your roof is old and worn, it may not be doing a great job of keeping heat out of your home. It also might have gaps where air can leak out. This means your air conditioning system will be working harder to keep your home cool. 

 

New roofing materials are designed to repel heat, making it easier for your home to stay cool. This reduces your need for air conditioning, and so makes your home more energy efficient and eco friendly.
