Warm weather is soon approaching, which means it’s time to assess the quality of your roof. Depending on your location, you may have endured a harsh winter with snow and wind, which can potentially cause damage to some homes. This month at Senco Home Services, we’re talking about a few reasons you may want to skip the roof repair and get a replacement.
It’s A Better Investment
While a roof replacement is more expensive than roof repairs, it may save you more money in the long run for a few reasons. If you find that you constantly need new repairs for your roof due to aging, it may be a good idea to get a roof replacement. This is a great way to start fresh and minimize extra expenses for extensive repairs down the road.
It’s Longer Lasting
It’s important to note that while roof repairs are cheaper than roof replacements, repairs don’t prolong the lifespan of your roof. The repairs are just catered to the damages impacting your home at that time, while other problems may arise soon after due to unforeseen issues. By getting a roof replacement, you get to restart the lifespan of your roof.
It’s Energy Efficient
If you’re paying more for your heating or central air conditioning, you may be due for a roof replacement. One great thing about a replacement is that it can be energy efficient and help cut down on extra costs on utility bills to maintain the right temperature within the home.
A new roof will also provide you with a better Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) value range. A roof with a high SRI correlates to its ability to emit heat and reflect the sun’s solar energy. This means that your home will be cooler on a sunny day compared to roofs with a lower SRI value range.
You May Discover Other Issues
During a roof replacement, you may discover other damages that require attention that you otherwise would overlook. This can include things such as damage to the ceiling, insulation, or rafters of your home. You can also have a clear view of other damages such as leaks or even mold or rot. By seeing these damages now, you may save yourself from more serious damage and expenses in the future.
