Upgrade Your Home with a New Roof
February 16, 2017
If you’re considering ways to invest in your home, you may have already thought of the obvious — like a kitchen remodel or a bathroom gut. But what if there was a way to add value to your home and make it more comfortable and affordable to live in right away?
Updating your home’s roof can be the answer you’re looking for. The average lifespan of a roof is somewhere around 20 years, although it can vary. So if your home’s roof is coming close to that mark or if you don’t even know how old your roof is, it’s time to start thinking about investing in an upgrade.
How Do I Know It’s Time to Replace My Roof?
If you’re not sure about whether your roof would benefit from being replaced, here are a few things to consider:
- Age - Is your roof over 20 years old?
- Solar - Are you interested in adding solar panels to your home at some point?
- Curb Appeal - Does your roof simply look bad or is it starting to fall apart?
- Leaks - When the occasional rain comes down here in Southern California, have you experienced any leaking?
- High Energy Bills - Are your energy bills increasing because your HVAC system has to work overtime to keep your home comfortable?
Don’t wait until you see leaks to replace your roof. Make the decision to upgrade today!
COOL Roofs in Southern CA
With the virtually year-round sunshine and warm temperatures we have here in the Los Angeles area, your home attracts a lot of heat. This results in an uncomfortable home and higher than necessary cooling costs.
A COOL roof has high solar reflectance, meaning that it reflects the sun’s rays working to prevent heat absorption. Unlike typical roofs which absorb the sun’s heat, a cool roof reflects the majority of it, keeping your home cool and comfortable throughout the year.
COOL Roofing Benefits
Besides its unique ability to keep your home more comfortable, COOL roofs also offer additional benefits such as:
- Reduced energy use
- Lowered cooling bills
- Decreased home carbon footprint
- California Title 24 code compliance
- Improved curb appeal
- Increased home value
- Less risk of leaks
- Lifetime warranty
- Easier ability to add solar panels
All of these advantages help to increase the value of your home, so if and when you decide to sell, you’ll be able to list it for more. In the meantime, you’ll also have peace of mind that leaks won’t occur during the occasional rainstorm, pay significantly less on your cooling bill and stay comfortable throughout the hot weather.
