The Benefits of Roof Restoration
One of the areas homeowners typically overlook for restoration is the roof.
It’s understandable why that is – when you’re inside your home you can’t see it. When you’re outside, you can only see from certain vantage points, so you tend to forget it’s there. However, there are some benefits to dispelling this ‘out of mind, out of sight’ mentally and inspecting your roof on a regular basis.
Your roof protects your home from the elements (e.g. wind, rain and the sun). Over time, these forces wear down and weaken your roof, making it look discoloured, worn down and possibly doing damage to it as well.
If your roof has seen better days, you’re probably wondering what your options are – should you repair the problems, or invest in roof restoration?
Extends the life of the roof
Western Australia is known for its extreme weather events – gale-force winds, hail storms and blistering heat waves. They weaken the structural integrity of the roof. While it may not mean that your roof is going to collapse today, it means that eventually your roof is going to need some maintenance performed on it.
Not acting on issues you have now can make things a lot worse, causing you a fair amount of out of pocket expenses. However, if you chose to restore your roof, you can extend the product life of your current roof for many years to come.
As your roof deteriorates over time, the likelihood that you are going to experience a leak is going to increase. If water is getting into your home, it will cause water damage and the growth of mould and mildew. Unfortunately, a bucket is not going to fix your problems.
Having your roof restored is a preventative measure against this, because it will ensure that all your tiles are in place and that the roof is sealed.
It adds value of your home
If you’re selling in the near future, roof restoration can help you sell your house quicker and at a higher price.
If your roof is looking a little old and weathered, having it restored can bring it back to life. This is particularly important if you are selling, because it increases the aesthetic of your home. This directly translates to a higher listing price – sometimes in the tens of thousands of dollars.
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.
Improves energy efficiency
If your roof is in disrepair, it might not be properly sealed. If that’s the case, it’s letting air out of your home. In summer, this is causing your home to heat up more than necessary. It might be the reason you have to crank up the air conditioner, which in turn increases your electricity bill.
The added benefit is it will also keep your home warmer in the winter months. The money you save from a decreased energy expenditure will subsidise the cost of a restoration.
We hope this blog about roof restoration has been informative and has encouraged you to inspect the condition of your roof on a regular basis to ensure no major problems occur.
