Our job is very simple: we fix roofs. Whether you check your shingles every month or never even think about it, it’s our problem when your roof develops a hole or a leak.

But besides the peace of mind of knowing that your roof is intact and safe, what good is a new roof? It turns out there are several benefits you may have never considered.


  1. Your utility bills will go down.

Old roofs let out warm air in the winter and cold air in the summer. A new roof that is insulated properly and doesn’t have any missing shingles will keep air and money where it belongs: indoors with you.

Roofing materials get more energy efficient every year, so an update on your current roof means you’ll find a smaller utility bill in your mailbox next month.


  1. Your home’s value will go up.

A new roof is one of the best investments you can make when you’re renovating your home before selling it. Not only will you put a buyer at ease by telling them the roof is brand new, you’ll also impress the appraiser, who is always on the lookout for new improvements.

Roofing replacements will land you an average of 62.9% return on your investment, which is high for large home improvement projects.


  1. Your home will have brand new curb appeal.

You can always tell when a house has a new roof. Even if you never really looked at it as you drove by, a new roof in your neighborhood will have all the neighbors lining up to give compliments.

That also means buyers can tell the difference between an unimpressive roof and a brand new one. It’s one of the first things they’ll see when they tour your home, so it’ll make them feel more optimistic about the rest of your house.
