When it comes to home improvements, the last thing many people consider is replacing their roof. That’s usually because they think a roof replacement is horrendously expensive. True, replacing your roof is usually associated with a high initial outlay, however the long-term returns mean that your roof could end up paying for itself.
Research has shown that the return-on-investment of a new roof can be as high as seventy percent. That means that of the money you spend on your roof, the majority of it will eventually be recouped.
Additionally, if you invest in a modern, energy-efficient roof like one supplied by our team here at RAM Residential Remodeling, you will never have to consider replacing or maybe even repairing your roof ever again. Old roofs are prone to damage, especially by the elements, and repair bills can add up significantly over time.
Modern roofs are designed to be long-lasting and incredibly energy-efficient. In the old days, a roof was seen as little more than a way of keeping water from entering the building it sat atop of. These days not only is a roof required for that function, but it is also always necessary to stop heat from escaping from your home when it is cold, and heat from entering your home when it is hot. Modern roofs are designed to do precisely both those things.
Modern roofs will also protect your home from the unwanted intrusion of items such as mold and mildew. If these unwanted invasions find their way into your walls, then you could be facing real problems down the line.
You do not, of course, have to remain in your home for years in order to get the benefit from replacing your roof. If you are looking to sell your home, then the fact that your roof has been recently replaced will be a great selling point, and will also add dollars to your home’s value. Potential buyers will be reassured that replacing the roof of their new purchase is something that they simply will never have to consider.
