Your roof is probably one of the most important parts of your home, it is always protecting you from all sorts of bad weather all year round. Due to the fact that it performs such an essential role for your household means that it is very susceptible to wear and tear.
You may already have your roof regularly serviced but that doesn’t mean it is going to last for your life time, every single roof out there will have a limited service life. We always think that if your roof is over ten years old then you need seriously consider getting it replaced as soon as possible.
I recently got my roof replace by Topseal domestic roofing and it was by far the best decision I have made for my home in recent years, in fact I don’t know why I didn’t do it sooner. Here are 3 of the main reasons why I chose to get my roof replaced.
Protection against the elements
It goes without saying that old roofs are extremely vulnerable, therefore they require a lot more care and also maintenance. If for example you have an old roof and a small leak comes through, you will be looking at a pretty hefty bill for the water damage that is caused and the repairs needed.
Your roof takes up a large percentage of your house that is viewable from the outside. To increase the visual appeal of your house you need to get a new roof – the impact it will have is more than significant. You will be able to choose from a wide range of designs allowing you to make your home look younger and also give it your own little unique touch.
Save some money
Old roofs, more often than not, have cracks or gaps in them, this can lead to a lot of energy leaking from your home. Even the smallest leak will see your energy bill creep up, especially during the winter months. To compensate for the energy leak you will need to consume more energy to keep your home at a comfortable temperature – this of course leads to much higher bills. With a new roof this is a non issue, I have already seen my bills come down quite significantly. This is one of the main reasons why I can’t believe I didn’t replace my roof sooner!
