Fall is a great time of the year to undertake home improvement projects, and one area of your home that should always be a priority is the roof. Having a healthy roofing system offers a range of benefits, from protecting your home from the elements to lowering your energy consumption.
In today’s post, Edmunds General Contracting shares four great benefits of a healthy roof.
1. Better Protection From the Elements
Come fall, your roof has experienced everything from spring showers to the blistering heat of summer. With winter on the way, you want to make sure your roof is in good working order before Mother Nature throws even more at it. By addressing roof issues in the relatively mild fall season, you make sure your home is well come winter.
2. Prolongs Your Roof’s Lifespan
Asphalt shingle roofing systems have an average operating lifespan of about 15 to 25 years. However, this estimate does not take into account the level of elemental damage a roof sustains throughout the year. A roof in disrepair will deteriorate faster, necessitating costly repairs or even premature replacement. But keeping your roof healthy and well maintained actually helps extend its lifespan and minimizes the need for repairs.
3. Lowers Your Energy Consumption
Your roof also plays a big role in regulating the energy consumption in your home. A damaged roof provides weak insulation, which means you’ll have to use your air conditioning or heating systems more often. Avoid this problem by making sure your roof is in good shape before temperatures plummet this winter.
4. Enhances Curb Appeal
Finally, keeping your roof healthy means you are maintaining your home’s beauty. Your roof, after all, is one of the first things people will see when they visit your home.
