3 Reasons To Finally Go Through With a Roof Replacement

Replacing a roof can be expensive, so it’s understandable that you’ll want to prolong having a new roof installed for as long as possible. However, trying to extend the life of your roof when it is obviously old and worn down comes with its downfalls. If you realize your roof is out of shape and needs some major TLC, consider these reasons to stop delaying the inevitable and finally invest in a replacement.

1. A Worn Roof Is Prone to Major Damage

Leaks and roof collapse are much more likely to happen if roofing materials are already worn out and breaking apart. Improper insulation can lead to excess moisture levels, contributing to mold and mildew growth. Not only can these problems make a roof replacement more expensive, but they can also cause extensive damage to other parts of your home or business.

2. Repairs Add Up 

As your roof gets older, minor problems are bound to happen. Damaged or missing shingles, cracked materials, lifted flashing, and ripped membranes are all common issues that many home and business owners have to deal with at some point. Replacing your roof allows you to avoid spending money on excessive repairs.

3. A New Roof Adds Value to Your Home

If you’re planning to sell your home in the near future, the state of your roof has a major impact on its value. A new roof often raises resale value by as much as $12,000. Overall, an old roof may attract less interest from potential buyers. 

Having your roof replaced may be expensive initially, but neglecting to do so has major consequences. Be proactive in maintaining your roof and contact Garlock French Roofing for a quote today. Call 612-230-8351 or email us to learn more!
