01 Nov ROOF RESTORATION AND ITS BENEFITS
1. Roof Life Extension.
Weather conditions such as strong winds, sunrays and heavy rainfall altogether contribute to the weakening of the structural integrity of a roof. While it may not necessarily mean an immediate collapse of the coverings, it points in the direction of an eventual maintenance procedure to be carried out at some point.
Not acting on existing issues before they escalate out of proportion is a sure way to incur undue and costly expenses. However, if you choose to restore your roof, you can extend the product life of your current roof for many years.
2. Prevents Leaks.
As a roof deteriorates over time, the likelihood of experiencing a leak is going to increase. If water gets into a home, it causes dampness, growth of mold and mildew and damages elements within the building.
Having a roof restored is a preventive measure against this, because it would ensure proper sealing of any cracks or openings in the roof.
3. It Adds Value To A Home.
Roof restoration can help sell a house quicker and at a higher price.
If a roof is looking old and weathered, having it restored can bring it back to life. This is particularly important if the house is being put up for sale (or lease/rent), because it increases the overall aesthetic of a home. This directly translates to a higher listing price.
Buyers who see a roof in need of repair are less likely to purchase the property because it diminishes the curb appeal and is seen as an added cost to the price of the home.
4. Improves Energy Efficiency.
If a roof is in disrepair, it might not be properly sealed. If that’s the case, it’s letting air out of the building. In cases of extreme heat weather conditions, this causes the building to heat up more than necessary. This might lead to increased use of Air Conditioning, which in turn increases electricity bills.
The money saved from a decreased energy expenditure will subsidize the cost of a restoration.
