We understand that the cost of a new roof can be surprising. We also know it’s not always in the budget. However, if you look at a roof replacement as in investment in your home, you’ll see how it makes more sense to choose quality products from an experienced roofer over the cheapest option or another repair to your old roof.
Depending on your current roof and its color, a new roof may save you significantly. First, architectural shingles are more insulative than 3-tab shingles. You’ll see some energy savings just from upgrading to an architectural shingle. If you want even more savings, switch from a dark colored roof to a light color. For the most savings, an estimated 15%, look at ENERGY STAR® rated shingles, sometimes called cool roofing shingles.
Return on Investment
Although few homeowners replace their roof with the intent to immediately sell their home, it’s not always a bad idea. A new roof gives a 94% return on investment in the Greensboro area according to the Remodeling 2020 Cost Vs. Value report which can be viewed in its entirety by clicking here. If you know you’re going to be selling in a few years, you’ll reap the energy savings too. And, a home with a new roof will sell faster than the comparable home with an old roof.
Today’s shingles are significantly better at protecting your home than 15-20-year-old shingles. Some of the improvements include better wind and impact resistance. Most new shingles are Class A fire resistance, something your current shingles may or may not be.
