A new roof can be a big decision, but it doesn’t come with a small price tag. However, there are tremendous benefits of roof replacement worth considering. Here are a few reasons why you should replace your old roof:
Health & Safety
Old roofs that are leaking can allow mold and mildew to form inside your home. For people with allergies, asthma, or a weakened immune system, mold can cause serious health problems. Roof replacement should be conducted long before leaks start to happen. Once the water begins to infiltrate the home, mold can start to grow rapidly. It’s hard to mitigate the damage once this happens. Furthermore, an old, damaged roof is at risk of collapse, posing a severe hazard to the occupants. A solid new roof that has been installed by experts and under warranty provides you the peace of mind that your home is a safe place for you and your loved ones.
An old roof in need of replacing will cause air to leak out of your home and keep your HVAC system working far harder than it should have to. This can add up to quite an increase in energy bills. The professionals here at Knockout Roofing use leading energy-efficient roofing material. This top-of-the-line material stands up very well to harsh Connecticut winters.
Increased Home Value
A new roof increases your home’s value and also the appraisal value. If your roof is only a few years old and in good condition, a new roof won’t offer many benefits. However, if your roof is in poor condition and getting up there in age, an appraiser will notice this and reduce the home’s value. A new roof will also add to the curb appeal of the house. This will make it much more appealing to buyers when you sell your home.
A new roof is worth its price tag and can provide numerous benefits. Are you thinking about replacing your roof? Contact our team of experts here at Knockout Roofing and Home Improvement for your free consultation today!
