A roof restoration is a major project that should not be taken lightly. Whether you are doing a roof restoration in the house that you intend to stay in for the rest of your life or one that you are putting up for sale in Chelsea, there is no doubt that a roof restoration will make a world of difference to your home, in more ways than one. It is always a good idea to go for a complete roof restoration rather than a patchwork roof repair when you can afford it and when there is such a necessity. This is an investment that will pay itself over many times over the years, so you can rest assured that your money will be put to good use.
Benefits of a roof restoration
There are many different kinds of roof shingles, with differences in sizes, colours, materials, etc. Whether it is terracotta, cement, colorbond, tiled, or metal, the benefits to restoring your roof are the same, some of which are as follows:
-Instantly enhances the curb appeal of your home. This is the fastest and most cost effective way to get your home looking as good as new. Whether it is for an important event taking place in your home (a wedding, maybe?) or the arrival of a new family member, or just a revamp to set your spirits soaring again every time you look at your home, a roof restoration is the way to go to make your home as attractive as it was when it was new!
-If you have a problem with mildew or mold, there is no better way to fix it than through a roof restoration as the roof is the #1 way that moisture gets into the home. If you have very young children or elderly family members living at home who may be susceptible to allergies or any respiratory illnesses, then it becomes mandatory to go for a roof restoration so that their health is not compromised in any way at all.
-If you live in a city where you get heavy rainfall or heavy winds or storms, then it is better to go for a roof restoration so that you can be sure that there is no compromise to the structural integrity of the roof which can put your family and home to risk when there is any unfavourable weather conditions that are forecasted.
-A roof restoration is also in order if there has been heavy winds, rains, storms, etc., so that you don’t have to waste money going for patchwork roof repairs that will only cost more in the long run. A roof restoration will get everything back in order soon enough.
-There is no better way to extend the life of your roof than through a complete restoration. Even though you still have to regularly inspect your roof, you can be sure that your new roof will last you another 10-15 years at least if looked after regularly and carefully. This means your spended money now to restore the entire roof will be well worth it in the long run.
-If your home is being put up for sale, a roof restoration can instantly increase its appeal, attract more buyers, get you more money, and get your house sold sooner and easier than before. You can easily get back the money you spent on the roof restoration by increasing the sale price of your house, which prospective buyers will be willing to pay anyway, when they see there is a new roof in place, which means they don’t have to shell out any extra money for any roof repairs in future!
-If you are going to be staying in the same house for the next couple of years or for the rest of your life, a new roof can dramatically increase energy efficiency, thereby bringing down your electricity bills. It will keep your house warmer during the winter and cooler during the summer. It will ensure that there is no air being leaked out during the winter, thus making sure your heating is not being wasted. It will ensure that there is no extra hot air flowing into the house during summer, which means your air conditioning will not be wasted. This means you use your heating or air conditioning less and what is used is being maximized, which means more savings on your energy bills!
A roof restoration has so many benefits that you don’t have to think twice about it anymore!
