Your roof does a lot of work; it keeps your home and your family protected from the elements, and it helps your home look its best. Because of the importance of your roof, you should only trust it to true experts, like those of us at Wolff Roofing. We have the knowledge and experience needed to ensure a job well done.
DECIDING BETWEEN REPAIR, RE-ROOFING AND REPLACEMENT
When possible, we will choose to extend the life of your roof rather than replace it, either through repairs or re-roofing, which refers to the replacement of shingles. However, sometimes replacement is necessary to protect the integrity of your home and ensure the safety of your family. During our inspection, we will determine how significant the problems are and then either recommend repair, re-roofing, or replacement. We will base our decision which option will offer you the best protection and be the most cost-effective for you over time.
5 REASONS WHY ROOF REPAIR SHOULD BE YOUR TOP HOME IMPROVEMENT PRIORITY
We get it, roof repair can be a bit of a hassle. It’s one of those home improvement tasks you can’t necessarily fix yourself: you have to arrange to have your local roofing professional come out, and you have to shell out cash for the repair that you don’t necessarily want to spend. While your roof might usually feel like your last home improvement priority, it’s important to remember that your roof is your number one defense against the weather. It’s what keeps your home and family safe and dry. Since it is such an important feature of your home, it’s worth considering moving your roof up the priority list.
If you’ve been putting off roof repairs, or you’ve quite honestly forgotten about roof maintenance, here are 5 reasons you might want to rethink your home improvement priorities:
ROOFS SERIOUSLY AFFECTS PROPERTY VALUE AND CURB APPEAL
If you’re considering selling your home within the next few years, you’ll really want to put some effort into that roof. The condition of your roof is one of the first questions a potential homebuyer is going to ask, and it’s one of those obvious features that you can’t really twist the truth on. A neglected roof is a very apparent thing 0 prospective buyers will be able to tell just driving up if you’ve kept it up or if something’s been left in disrepair for far too long. A roof that won’t need much maintenance post-sale could even allow you to raise your asking price.
THE SOONER IT’S FIXED, THE LESS IT WILL COST YOU
Even if you’re not planning on selling your home in the near future, it’s important to note that the sooner you get repairs done, the less you’ll have to spend in the long run. Nearly all roof damage will get progressively worse: if you’ve lost a shingle, it can easily turn into a leak over time; if your roof has a leak, serious water damage can occur if the leak isn’t taken care of. Your best bet is to call up your local roofing professional as soon as you notice a problem. They can fix minor issues for minor costs.
In the same vein as saving money, know that your insurance adjuster will be able to tell if you waited too long to call a roofing repair professional. If you request a service as soon as you notice damage, your insurance is likely to cover most of your claim, depending on the type of damage. But if you wait too long to get an issue fixed, you’ll probably only receive compensation for the cost of a basic repair job before the roof damage worsened from neglect. That means you’ll be paying more out of pocket for that roof repair, when originally it might have all been covered under your homeowner’s insurance policy.
If there are any damages to your roof that allow water and humidity to seep into your home, it’s easy for mold to grow in sneaky places like exterior walls and ceilings. Mold in the home seriously decreases your air quality. If it’s allowed to continue to grow, it’s not surprising to see family members with increased instances of cold and allergy-like symptoms. Mold is an especially difficult issue to remedy, and can cost a lot more than simply patching a hole in the roof would have cost.
