Top 3 Reasons for Roof Replacement in Prospect Heights, IL.
It’s important to replace your roof at the right time. Waiting too long to replace your roof or installing a new roof before it’s necessary could end up costing you. Our roof inspection can help determine whether your home is in need of a new roof or if roofing repairs and maintenance are enough.
Unless there are obvious signs that you might need a new roof, like water coming into your home, you may be unsure whether roof replacement is the answer. Besides having a leaky roof, there are other reasons why it might be smart to consider roof replacement.
Here are 3 reasons to have new roofing installed on your house:
- Repairing Storm Damage: Storms can damage roofing in several ways. High winds sometimes blow roof shingles off the roof, creating obvious empty areas that need to be re-roofed. Indirect damage is also common: Wind causes tree branches or entire trees to come down on the roof, often damaging the roof structure as well as roof shingles. Rather than make spot repairs following storm damage, it’s often smarter to replace the roof.
- Increasing Home Value: Even if your asphalt shingle roof isn’t worn or damaged, it can make sense to replace your roofing to increase curb appeal and real estate value. Some homeowners decide to install new roofing as part of their preparation for selling a house. When combined with new exterior siding or an exterior paint job, new roofing can really make an older home look brand new. Apart from its aesthetic impact, a new roof offers a great deal of financial security to a prospective home buyer. The new owner won’t have to worry about roof replacement or common roofing problems for a long time.
- Replacing a Worn Roof: Asphalt roof shingles typically last anywhere from 15 to 25 years. Unfortunately, factors such as storm damage, low slope, ice damming, and mold or moss growth can significantly shorten the life of an asphalt roof. If your roof has any of the characteristics described in the “signs of damaged roofing” sidebar, it’s a good idea to replace the roof. Otherwise, you risk even more severe problems like rotted roof framing and leaks that can damage the house and its contents.
