Calling up a roofing company to inspect and install a new roof on your Louisville home is not something most people look forward to. However, when it comes time for a new roof to be installed, there are many benefits that make it worth your time and money. Here are a few of the many benefits there are to installing a new roof:
Curb Appeal & Resale Value
Changing out an older roof for a new one can increase the curb appeal, and therefore the resale value of a home. It is an investment that can even change the look of a house. With Owens Corning® roofing and Ply Gem products, there are great colors and materials that can be used to compliment design elements of the home.
A roof in good condition provides a layer of protection for the home. With insulation and proper sheathing, a house becomes more energy efficient, creating a barrier to hold heat inside. Newer roofing materials, however, create an even better barrier against heat loss. Making the move from an older roof to a newer roof can increase the energy efficiency in your home and how it retains heat.
Finding Weak Spots
While this may not seem like a benefit at the time, finding weak spots in your roof and fixing them can result in saving thousands of dollars down the road. When there are weak spots in the sheathing or the flashing, it can cause water damage that goes unseen for an indeterminable amount of time. Moisture from Louisville weather left unattended can cause mold growth, which can affect health long term and create property damage requiring mold remediation. Preventing these costly expenses through prevention is a sure benefit.
