4 Considerations For Your Next Roof Replacement

4 Considerations For Your Next Roof Replacement

Although damage may be the reason for your roof replacement, enhanced curb appeal and resale value is always on the mind. Between picking the type and color of shingles and going through a list of different enhancements- knowing your home is getting an upgrade is exciting!

Of course, there is a lot that goes into roofing materials that aren’t just aesthetically pleasing. When making decisions about the specifics of your new roof, it’s important to go through all of the options that are presented to you. MLM’s project consultants are subject matter experts, and can explain these options in great detail.

Here are big factors to consider before thinking about the shingle color:

Durability

If you decide to get your roof replaced, we are sure you want your new roof to last as long as possible. Durability of materials is important when looking at your options, especially for homes in our region. One of the main reasons this should be top priority is that you need a roof that can withstand any weather conditions from hail, to high winds, to extreme heat and of course severe rainfall.

Maintenance

Something to remember when deciding on your roof is how much maintenance it will require. The answer to this question might not be the cheapest, but it will be the most cost effective in the long run. A saying that rings true in all areas of life is “You get what you pay for.” Choosing the cheapest option may save money right now but will only require maintenance and costly repairs down the road.

Lifespan

A new roof is an investment you make into your home. To get the most out of this investment, it’s important to choose materials that will last! A popular roofing material right now is asphalt which typically lasts 20-25 years, pending there is no severe damage. Another material, though costly, is slate which can last about 100 years! Weighing all of these options will help you choose the right decision for your home.

Energy Efficiency

No one likes paying high energy bills every month, that’s why choosing a roof that directly impacts the energy efficiency of your home will cut those energy costs down significantly. A roof is one of the main things that regulates the temperature inside and can lessen the reliance on your AC and heating.
