Making the decision to purchase a home brings with it many responsibilities. You become responsible for maintaining the structural integrity of the home, keeping it clean and keeping your yard clean, free of junk and properly landscaped. One of the most important aspects related to owning a home is keeping your roof in good condition. A home that has a roof in poor condition is subject to a wide array of problems including water damage, devaluation of the home, and the ever-present possibility of roof collapse, which can be devastating.
Roof restoration is considered to be the removal of the old roof including the shingles, tile, paper, and plywood which make up the entirety of the roof. After the old material is removed new material is then installed to increase efficiency and water-security of the roof. A typical roof restoration project can be completed in a matter of days if you have hired a professional team. If you opt to complete the restoration yourself the project can last from a few weeks to a few months, depending upon how often you work on it.
Importance of Roof Restoration
Getting your roof restored if it is currently in poor condition is very important for numerous reasons. First, it will significantly raise the value of your home after the roof restoration has been completed. The value of your home is highly dependent upon a number of variables, number one among them the condition of your roof. Having a roof in poor condition will lower the value of your home a good degree, and completing a total roof restoration will improve the value of your home.
Another reason it’s so important to have a roof restoration completed is because of the fact that it will prevent the majority of water leaks from occurring. As the seams and cracks in your shingles become more apparent it becomes easier for moisture and water to seep into these openings. This can cause a whole host of problems including water leaking into your home, rotting and corroding your floors and running your prized furniture. Getting a complete roof restoration completed will stop all leaks in their tracks.
The price of getting an entire roof restoration completed is dependent upon a wide array of factors, including, but not limited to the size of your roof, the condition of your roof, what company you choose, and what quality you want the roof to be upon completion.
