5 Major Benefits To Upgrading Your Roof!
There is a plethora of benefits to upgrading your roof from increasing your homes’ market value, improving energy efficiency, and protecting your loved ones and interior. If your roof is increasing in age, it may be time to consider a full roof replacement.
Protect Your Home
Your roof serves as an important barrier against snow, hail, rain, ice, branches, and debris from damaging the interior of your home. It plays an important role in keeping the entire house structurally sound and safe from the outside elements. A new roof also promotes a healthy household by keeping the moisture that creates mold and mildew out of the attic and home.
Enhance Your Curb Appeal
Roofs typically make up a large portion of your home’s outward appearance. Owens Corning offers multiple shingle colors and styles, so you can customize your roof to your preferred aesthetic and make it pop in your neighborhood. A new roof enhances your curb appeal and increases the market value of your home.
Improve Energy Efficiency
Modern ventilation systems and roofing materials have been technically engineered by experts and when properly installed can maximize your roofs overall functionality. A new roof can help maintain the home’s temperature which in turn eliminates cold drafts and overheated rooms and significantly lowers heating and cooling bills. This not only maximizes the entire family’s comfort but also increases the home’s energy efficiency overall.
Maintain Insurance Coverage
Updating your roofing system is also important in maintaining comprehensive homeowners’ insurance. Unfortunately, most insurance companies only offer limited coverage on roofs 20 years old or older. Although insurance companies do cover roof replacement if the damage is an act of nature or sudden accidental event, most policies will not pay out to replace or repair a deteriorating roof due to wear-and-tear or neglect.
Peace Of Mind
A new roof gives you the peace of mind knowing that the people and things you value the most are protected while under your roof from the elements during heavy rains and high winds. Also, with Owens Corning Platinum Warranty and Rock Solid Exteriors Platinum Plus Guarantee you can trust that your roofing materials and workmanship is covered to the max!
