Your roof is the first line of defence your home has against the elements of the environment.
Ice, snow, rain, wind, the sun’s UV radiation, even plants, trees and animals can eventually compromise the integrity of the roof of your home. Dark patches or cupped, curled, or missing shingles are just some of the warning signs that your roof may be vulnerable. A compromised roof will let in moisture or worse and, if unattended to, will eventually lead to more costly structural problems and the growth of harmful or even toxic spore producing moulds. A compromised roof devalues your home, leaves it susceptible to costly repairs, and puts the health of your family at risk.
As noted Canadian residential home improvement contractor and TV host Mike Holmes states, “I guarantee your roof will need repairs someday – don’t wait for it to start leaking before you do something about it”.
Re-roofing will add value to your home. The Remodeler’s Cost vs Value Report 2013, a U.S. benchmark in its 26th year, reports that replacing the roof of your home can return over 60% of the re-roofing cost to your home’s value. A $10,000 investment could then add about $6,000 to the value of your home. Replacing the roof of your home will help protect your family and your home. It will also give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your biggest investment is well cared for. A new roof will make your house look great again and give it the curb appeal buyers look for.
