3 Reasons Why New Roofs Are Good Investments
Home improvement often sounds like a great idea, but what’s the best project to tackle first, and why?
The short answer is…. A new roof!
A new roof can last for decades, and it can keep your home looking beautiful for years to come. In some cases, new roofs are even eligible for tax credits or deductions. If you’re considering hiring a contractor to install a new roof on your home, here are some reasons why it’s worth the cost:
1.New roofs are built to last and can withstand harsh weather.
New roofs are built to withstand extreme weather conditions. In contrast, older roofs that have lost their integrity may need to be replaced within 10 years- or even sooner if you live in a high-risk area for hurricanes and other natural disasters (like Florida). People often want to wait until roof damage is major in order to get a new roof. Worthmann specializes in repair as well as replacement, and we recommend having your roof inspected semi-annually to avoid any surprises.
Newer homes have been built with stronger materials that hold up better against even severe storms. For example, many newer roofs are made of architectural shingles—a type of material that is more durable than traditional asphalt shingles and will keep your home protected from strong winds as well as hail damage.
2.New roofs increase home resale value.
Who doesn’t want to increase the resale value of their home? What if there was a home improvement project that not only proved to be well worth it in terms of functionality, but also could give you a better return on overall investment? We at Worthmann believe that a new roof could be just that.
It’s well known that a new roof can increase the value of your house. In fact, a study by the National Association of Realtors found that in 37 states, it was possible to recoup around 60% or more of the cost of the new roof through increased home sale price when selling your home.
New roofs are a sign that someone cares about their property and has invested in maintaining it. This makes them attractive to potential buyers who want to see themselves as caring owners too—especially if you’re selling during a time when there are few other homes on the market at all!
3.New roofs are a great investment in your home’s future.
A new roof will make your home more energy efficient. The materials used in modern roofs are often more durable, which means that you’ll save on heating and cooling costs for years to come. If you live in an area that has a wide range of temperatures, regulating the thermostat is a constant battle you’re familiar with. In investing in a new roof for your home, the energy efficiency alone might be good enough reason to make your money back in the long run.
How rainy is it in your part of Florida? If you’re practically anywhere in the state, especially an area that hurricanes tend to funnel through, a well-designed roof can also help reduce the amount of rainwater entering your home’s interior, as well as block sunlight from fading carpets and furniture.
