You may not think of your roof often, but it just might be the most important part of your house. If you don’t pay attention after a storm, leaks can develop which can cause extensive damage. Also, the longer you delay getting a new roof the more expensive it may be to fix it. In particular, insurance companies may refuse to cover you if you don’t maintain your roof.

While you may consider putting off a new roof, this may cost you more in the long run. First, if your roof is leaking, the leak is only going to get bigger allowing more water to seep in. As the holes get bigger, there is also the potential for insects and wildlife to get into your home.
Furthermore, water leaking into your home can begin to wear or rot away at structural beams. Even a small leak can create structural damage, although it might not be noticeable for many years. Additionally, wherever there is moisture, there is potential for mold growth. Mold can cause many health problems such as nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing, and upper respiratory tract symptoms.
Often, leaking water may seep into places where electricity flows. Primarily, the presence of moisture can increase the current heating up the wire creating the potential for a fire. Moreover, water seeping around junction boxes with uninsulated wires also has the potential for a fire. Another effect of not maintaining your roof is increased energy bills. Even a small crack in your roof will allow cool air or heat, depending on the season, to escape. Finally, some insurance companies will refuse to insure your home if your roof is over 20 years old.
Now that you realize you need a new roof you must decide on what type of roofing you want. Certainly, there are several types to choose from, with asphalt shingles and metal roofing being the most common. While most roofing companies are skilled at installing shingles, metal roofing requires specialized skill.
Notably, for over 100 years, asphalt shingles have been protecting homes across America. Clearly the economical choice, shingles are also durable, long-lasting and beautiful. The average life of an asphalt roof is approximately 20 years. Plus, architectural shingles can withstand 130 mph winds. Available in many different colors, shingles are a beautiful addition to your home.
Although asphalt shingles are the most popular choice in the US, metal roofing is catching up. This is mainly due to its longevity. Lasting between 50-70 years, it’ll probably be the last roof you’ll ever buy. Additionally, metal roofs are extremely durable, withstanding winds up to 155 mph. Primarily, it’s due to their durability that some insurance companies give discounts on rates if you have a metal roof. Also available in a wide range of colors and styles, some metal roofs imitate other textures, such as shingles.
Any new roof will increase the value of your home, but buyers will recognize the value of a metal roof.
