02 Aug The benefits of a new roof
New stuff always looks cool. When you get a new roof, it can stand out all red and shiny from the top of the road, and can look absolutely gorgeous when you compare it to a photo of your old and moss-embedded, browning and dirty roof.
It isn’t just all about aesthetics of course, and there are many benefits of getting a new roof that could actually leave you with impressive cost savings alongside an awesome new feature at the top of the house.
High return of investment
Let’s start at the most exciting part for your wallet. Incredibly, getting a new roof is one of the best ways to add a decent amount of value onto your home. Return of investment rates stand out at a pretty impressive 75%, which offers promising potential for putting money into the house that you will get back in the long run.
There is also something to be said for adding to the overall impression of the house as seen from the street, and having a sparkly new roof can add to the curb appeal of your home instantly.
Away from how it looks on the outside, and there are many more inside differences you may notice when opting for a new roof. One useful point to know is that the more energy efficient the roof is, the more warm air will be kept inside the house.
If you struggle to heat your house through the winter and it doesn’t even retain that much warmth in the summer, a new roof could easily allay these issues and also offer you a decent saving on energy bills for the year. Another good way that a new roof can pay itself back over the course of its life cycle.
A new roof also helps to freshen up the trapped and damp air that could be kept hidden in lost cavities in the depths of the roof. If you struggle with respiratory issues, this could prove an effective step to mitigate what you are breathing in which you may not even be aware of.
You can also take the opportunity to incorporate skylights into the new roofing, which can dramatically transform the way your home appears in front of your eyes. Everybody loves light, so taking the opportunity to bring more of it into your living space is never a bad idea. At Roundhay Roofing, we can also install Velux windows as part of the service.
