Top Reasons Why You Should Replace Your Roof This Spring

Your home’s roof is critical to the overall integrity of your house and it’s important to make sure it holds up over time. If your roof has seen better days and it’s starting to leak or cause problems in various portions of the house, it’s time to consider a replacement. Spring is the perfect time to replace your roof, too. Here’s why.

Reason #1:  It adds value and protection to your home.
If your roof is nearing the end of its life cycle, it’s time to replace it. If you don’t, you could be risking damage to the inside part of your home and could increase your risk for ceiling damage or the development of dry rot or mold. A new roof will protect your home from this kind of costly damage. In addition, a new roof will enhance curb appeal and help increase the value of it, which can be great if you’re considering selling the home in the next several years.

Reason #2: You can use your tax return.
Springtime means its tax season and for many homeowners, a tax return is used for those household projects that need to be done! If you’re expecting to get some money back this year in the form of a tax return, consider putting it toward your roof replacement! A new roof is an investment that will be well worth it – it could save you from future problems or issues that could be very expensive down the road.  Using a portion of your tax return means you won’t need to dip unexpectedly into your savings or secure a loan to help pay for a new roof after it’s been damaged, and you’re forced to replace it without much warning. Planning ahead is always a great idea!

Reason #3: Springtime weather.
Even though we work on roof replacements year-round, springtime is one of the best times of year to replace your roof because the weather is getting better! Spring in the Northwest can be rainy, but we have more daylight and there are longer stretches of dry, sunny weather. This makes roofing jobs a lot easier to complete.

Reason #4: Energy savings.
Replacing your old, leaky roof with a new one will help improve your home’s overall energy efficiency. This translates to more money in your pocket at the end of the month because you won’t be spending unnecessary money on high heating or cooling bills! This is especially helpful once you start running your air conditioner on those warm spring or summer days.
