What You Should Know About Buying A New Roof

A few tips from our roofing experts

It isn’t every day that homeowner’s have to consider buying a new roof. Without the proper knowledge or roofing company to help, it can be hard to know what questions to ask. Below we have compiled some general knowledge about buying a new roof which will hopefully make the process a little easier for our customers.

 

  • Know your roof’s age. General wear and tear caused by aging and lack of upkeep are generally not included in your homeowner’s insurance policy. At age 10, it should be inspected to check its condition; any longer and you risk having to make more costly repairs in the future.
  • Call a roofing expert first. Before reaching out to your insurance company, we recommend having a trusted roofing professional inspect your roof damage to confirm that it would warrant a sizable claim. Filing an insurance claim without enough damage to exceed a deductible can be more costly than helpful.
  • Consider annual inspections. Some roof damage is virtually unnoticeable until it’s too late. After the warranty on your roof expires or it reaches 10 years old (whichever comes first), an annual inspection, combined with maintenance, will help prolong the life of your roof and catch issues before they cause expensive damage.
  • Have a roofing expert determine the damage. You may think you need a full roof replacement, but the damage could just warrant a repair. Before you decide, have a professional inspection scheduled to avoid unnecessary costs.
  • Think energy efficient. When replacing your roof, think about your attic ventilation as well. Not only will it increase the life expectancy of your roof, it will also add to the energy efficiency of your home. This saves you money on cooling costs in the long term.
  • Increase your home’s value. According to an article by Better Homes & Gardens, adding a new roof automatically enhances a home’s curb appeal by 40%. This means added value to you as a homeowner, and to potential buyers if you choose to sell your house one day.
