Are you considering improving the value of your home and property in 2023? What are some useful things you can do to accomplish this?

Here are some helpful tips to determine if you need a new roof:

  • Do you have missing, damaged, bent, broken, or curled shingles?
  • Do you have a sagging, warped roofline? 
  • Do you notice granules in the gutters?
  • Are mold, moss, and/or algae evident on the shingle surface? 
  • Do you have high monthly energy bills? 
  • Do you have water leaks on your attic walls and ceiling?

Now that you have decided you need a new roof, how will it benefit you and increase the value of your home? 

Curb Appeal

“Curb appeal” is the attractiveness of a property and its surroundings when viewed from the street. Landscaping, the front entrance, the condition of the siding, and the roof are all significant factors in curb appeal. When you drive down the street, you can see the homes which are well taken care of and those which could use some additional attention. A new fresh crisp roof can help you stand out from the neighbors on your block. 

Protect the Air Quality

The main purpose of a roof is to be a barrier between the outdoor weather elements and the interior temperature. If damage has been done to the current roofing system, and moisture has seeped down into the insulation and underlayment, mold and mildew can begin to form. For many people with allergies, this can be hazardous and unhealthy. Protecting the air quality we breathe is important for health and wellness. 

Energy Efficiency

Saving money on monthly energy bills is a desired goal. One way of doing this is to seal up a roof so the comfortable interior temperatures do not escape. According to the United States Department of Energy (US DOE), a new asphalt shingle roof can increase energy efficiency in your home by up to 30%, which works out to approximately $300 to $500 per year in savings. Secondly, your cooling system will run less which extends the life of your unit. 

Return on Investment

A new roof can offer a return on investment of nearly 60 to 68%, depending on the material used, and can increase your home value by approximately $12,000. Of course, a roof replacement costs more than that to install, but the return on investment is worth considering. Plus, the many years of protection with a new roof can offer exceptional peace of mind when the Louisiana storms approach.

There are additional advantages to upgrading your roof in 2023. These include: 

  • Attract potential buyers
  • New technologies in material
  • Longer Warranties on products from manufacturers
  • Possibly lower insurance premiums
