How often do you think about the roof of your home? As an integral part of your house, a roof serves many important purposes that go beyond protecting you from the elements. In fact, a good roof comes with a wide variety of benefits that impact many areas of your life. That’s why Pacific Home & Patio would like to provide you with the following advantages that come with replacing your home’s roof.
Boise Roofing Benefits
Increase Home Value
In the Treasure Valley, potential home buyers pay close attention to the curb appeal of a property. In addition to aesthetic appeal, replacing the roof of your home increases the likelihood that it will pass inspection without any problems. This, in turn, makes it easier to close a sale. Furthermore, a new roof increases the value of your home by approximately $12,000, making it a great return on investment.
Reduce Energy Costs
An outdated roof with poor insulation tends to be a leading factor when it comes to air leaks within your home. Furthermore, even though you can’t see them, doesn’t mean your HVAC system isn’t running longer cycles to match the temperature you set on your thermostat. This means you are spending more money on expensive energy bills to cool or warm your home. To ensure the overall comfort of your home and to save money on utilities, you may want to consider replacing an old roof.
A leaky roof isn’t just annoying and inconvenient, it can damage ceilings, furniture, walls, floors, and can result in dangerous and unwanted mold. If not resolved, water entering your home can work its way down into its structure. While some of the damage may be covered by your homeowner’s insurance, other expensive costs will have to come out of your own pocket. Furthermore, many insurance policies limit coverage depending on how long you waited to remedy the situation.
If your roof is leaking, it doesn’t just hurt the structure of your home. Mold and mildew can make your family sick, resulting in asthma, lung disease, and other serious health issues. In fact, there is a wide variety of evidence that links mold and mildew exposure to respiratory health issues.
Depending on the material used for your new roof, its warranty could last for as long as 15-50 years. However, it’s important to keep in mind that an extended warranty may only be valid if your roof is regularly maintained by a professional like Pacific Home & Patio.
Peace Of Mind
Any time there is extreme weather, your homeowner “to-do” list becomes full of precautionary actions. This includes making sure you are prepared for emergencies with fresh batteries, non-perishable food, water, flashlights, and a full tank of gas for your vehicles. The last thing you’ll want to worry about is whether the roof of your home is protecting your family.
