While every part of your home is important, none is more critical than the roof. The roof over your head is literally what protects you from the elements, and the premature failure of that roof could destroy your possessions, disrupt your life and cost you a great deal of money.
If your home is more than two decades old, chances are your roof is living on borrowed time. When properly maintained, a quality roof can last for decades, but with each passing year your roof sustains additional damage. As a homeowner, there are things you can do to protect your roof, from clearing away the snow and ice to fixing broken and damaged shingles. Eventually, however, you will need to have your roof replaced, and the quality of that replacement will be critical to the protection of your home.
The Importance of Regular Roof Inspections
If you want to make your roof last longer, the number one thing you can do is schedule an annual roof inspection. Having your roof inspected by a quality roofing specialist will help you uncover hidden damage – the type of damage that could shorten the life of your roof and create problems down the line.
When you schedule a roof inspection, you will get a detailed report of the findings, including recommendations to repair or replace the structure. If your roof needs replaced, you can work with the roofing specialist to find the best solution – one that you and your wallet can live with.
Modern Roofing Innovations
If your roof is more than two decades old, your replacement roof will likely have many advantages. There have been enormous advances in roofing design in the intervening years, from new roofing materials and longer lasting shingles to better construction techniques that can provide a longer life.
The new innovations in roof design, and the availability of modern roofing materials, have combined to provide homeowners with a better solution, and that can lower their costs going forward. Replacing your old roof with a brand new one can extend the life of your home, protect the things you own and increase the resale value of your property.
