Updating or renovating the home is a major decision, but depending on which type of project one chooses to undertake, it can be a great advantage structurally, economically, and aesthetically. For many homeowners, one update that they usually overlook is a roof restoration.
Over time, a roof tends to wear down, the tiles become flimsy, and aesthetically the roof begins to look old and worn. When considering your next project, a roof restoration is one that should be at the top of your list for a number of reasons.
Below are the roof restoration benefits that a homeowner can get to learn more, contact the Rite Price Roofing team at (08) 8348 5988.
Extend the Life of the Roof
As the old adage states, “nothing lasts forever” including a home’s roof. As the main source of protection from the elements, over time a roof can become damaged, be subject to the growth of moulds and suffer through numerous extreme weather events that can weaken its structure.
While these situations may not require emergency maintenance, your roof will eventually need an overhaul when the damage and stress reach a tipping point.
Rather than risk a massive repair bill due to a catastrophic roof failure, book in a restoration and have your roof upgraded with modern roofing products and installation techniques.
Restoring a Roof Prevents Pesky Leaks
Home damage comes in many forms, but one of the most troublesome is a water leak that allows moisture into the home through the roof.
When a roof deteriorates or is not properly sealed, water can easily find its way in and once it’s in, it will wreak havoc. If the roof is not restored, the house suffers from water damage and the growth of mould and mildew.
A roof restoration can easily remedy this problem by ensuring that all of the tiles are in place and that the roof is sealed as it should be. This also eliminates the cost of repairing damage due to water.
Added Value to the Home
Renovation projects are one of the best ways to increase the value of the home. For those that are planning on selling their home in the future, restoring the roof can easily add tens of thousands of dollars to the home’s value.
Potential buyers will also be satisfied that they will not need to shell out the costs of repairing the roof soon after their purchase.
Finally, having a roof in perfect condition will add to the home’s ‘curb appeal’ and you may find that your sale goes more smoothly.
Improve Home Energy Efficiency
Those who are a bit surprised at their energy or heating bills should understand that there are a number of ways that energy can escape the home.
One of the most common causes of high heating bills is through a roof that is leaking warm air to the outside. Whether through damage or disrepair, a roof that is not properly sealed against the elements is sure to let the heat out and the cold in.
A roof evaluation can tell you whether or not your roof is contributing to your heating or energy expenditures. If so, a quality roof restoration is all that is necessary to bring down your monthly home heating costs.
You may find that the restoration pays for itself rather quickly especially if your roof is in a serious state of disrepair.
Repair the Appearance of an Unsightly Roof
Finally, a roof restoration is the perfect renovation project for those who are concerned about the aesthetics or appearance of their home.
If your roof has been neglected the tiles may look raised or skewed, fastenings may be exposed and there may be signs of curling or blistering.Regardless of the problem, these issues are very unsightly and can cause your home to depreciate in value.
This is especially problematic if you are considering a sale of your home as you will have potential buyers inspecting the property top to bottom looking for ways they can achieve a discount.
Caring for one’s home is extremely important. Undertaking beneficial projects like a roof restoration will increase the value of the home, improve its appearance, reduce energy costs, and prevents leaks that can cause a great deal of damage.
