Summer is approaching in the Woodbridge area, and we are all looking for ways to save money, especially on our energy bills. Summer is also the season that many homeowners decide to remodel or upgrade features of their home. So how do you mix both? One of the home improvements that can save you money is a roofing replacement. Sure, a roofing replacements cost money (just like everything else), but eventually, you will need to replace your old roof. So don’t think about it as something else that you have to replace but as an investment.
How is roofing replacement an investment? It saves you money in a variety of ways.
- It can reduce your energy bills. A new roof will provide better insulation and will get rid of the problem of having cracks or holes that are letting heating or cooling out. Having a roof installed before summer can save you from paying a huge energy bill.
- It can reduce your homeowner’s insurance rates. With a new roof comes a new underlayment which serves as moisture protection. This is a benefit because it makes your home seem more protected.
- It can protect you from hurricane damage. Newer roofs can resist up to 130 mph per winds. Some older roofs have a wind rating of 65 mph or less. A roof with a higher wind rating will protect your home from hurricanes, and you will avoid having to replace personal items or fixing parts of your home affected by water damage.
Investing in a new roof will save you money and make your home more comfortable and safe.
