Is It Time? 3 Reasons To Install A New Roof This Year

If you've been postponing the installation of a new roof, this might be the perfect time to take action. There are a lot of benefits to be had by installing a new roof on your home. First, you can increase the value of your home by installing a new roof. Second, you can eliminate the leaks and the drafts. However, there are other benefits that you might not have considered. Here are three excellent ways you can reap the benefits of installing a new roof on your home. 

Improve the Appearance of Your Home

If you've done everything you can to improve the appearance of your home and it still looks a bit rundown, it's time to take a closer look at your roof. A damaged or faded roof can undermine the appearance of your home, regardless of how much work you've put into the rest of it. Unfortunately, if your home doesn't look its best, you might pay the price in the form of reduced property value. Not only that but if you try to sell your home, that damaged roof could cause you to lose money on the transaction. If your roof is taking away from the beauty of your home, it's time to have a new one installed. 

Prepare for a Solar System Installation

If you plan to invest in a new solar system for your home, the first thing you need to do is have your roof inspected. If there are problems with your roof, you might not be able to have your new solar panels installed. That's because your solar panels are attached directly to your roof. If you want to avoid problems with the installation of your new solar panels, the best thing you can do is start with a new roof installation. This is especially important if your roofing underlayment has sustained wood rot. With wood rot, your roof might not be able to withstand the weight of your solar panels. 

Get Rid of That Last Bit of Asbestos

If you have an older home, and the roofing material hasn't been replaced since before 1989, it's time to have a new roof installed. You might not realize this, but your old roofing material could contain asbestos. Prior to then, most roofing shingles were manufactured using asbestos. Installing a new roof will allow you to get rid of the asbestos that could be undermining your air quality, and your health.
