Roof repair may not seem like the most fun home improvement project, but it is a critical one, especially if you are seeing signs of damage. Lucky for you, now is the best time to complete any roofing project! Read on to learn why and contact us today for an inspection.
1. Summer Is Coming
Summer often means family vacations, backyard BBQ’s and being outside enjoying the warmer weather. The LAST thing you’ll probably want to be doing is dealing with roof leaks and repairs. That’s why now is the perfect time to schedule a roof inspection to get any, and all roofing issues are taken care of so you can spend the summer months the way you want to and not focused on roof repairs.
Severe weather is also more common in the summer months. If your roof has existing damage, it could get worse if strong winds, heavy rain or hail hits.
2. A New Roof Can Help Lower Energy Costs
During the hot summer months, your roof can easily reach temperatures of over 200 degrees. That heat penetrates roofs and warms up attics and top floors, forcing air conditioners to work overtime to keep up. If your home’s roof is 15+ years old, you could see significant improvement in your home’s cooling costs by upgrading it with newer materials available on the market today.
3. Existing Roof Damage Could Lead To Costly Repairs
A small roof leak may not seem like a big deal, but if not fixed right away, it can easily lead to thousands of dollars in repairs. One of the reasons a roof leak can be so costly is because water can travel as much as 8-10 feet away from the source of damage. If you are seeing roof leak warning signs like missing shingles or stains on your ceiling, you need to give us a call today to prevent more damage!
4. Roof Problems Affect Curb Appeal
Spring and summer are very popular times in the housing market! If you are thinking about listing your home, improving curb appeal should be a top priority, along with getting a roof inspection. Why? The roof of your home easily makes up about 50% of your overall curb appeal, and it’s something buyers will notice immediately. If they see missing or curling shingles, they will likely expect to pay less.
