The idea of a new roof might sound great to you, but you may also be put off by the investment and the time. There’s never been a better time to invest in your property though – especially if your working situation has changed – and here at ELT Home Improvements LTD, we wanted to share with you the top five benefits of a new roof.

It protects your home 

The roof over your head. It’s a common phrase and it generally means safety, warmth and comfort, but if you’ve got a leaking or structurally unstable roof, it could have a huge impact on your home overall. Water getting into your property, even in small amounts, could cause damage and give rise to mould and mildew issues, something which is both unpleasant to look at but also a health hazard. If you know your roof is old, it might be losing integrity in structure too, which poses a risk to the rest of your building. In the long run, you may end up paying for both roof repairs but also internal repairs, too.

Makes your home more attractive to potential buyers

Whether you’re thinking of selling your home right now or not, a new roof is an investment in the future since it will make it attractive to potential buyers. Telling anyone viewing your property that the roof was only recently replaced will give them confidence that you’ve looked after the property and that there is one less thing to tackle if they do decide to purchase. You could also see your home go up in value, ensuring you haven’t thrown your money away.

Greater energy efficiency for your home

Counting the cost of your energy bills? A new roof is a great way to improve the energy efficiency of your home. You can implement the latest thermal materials, replacing old, outdated and run-down roofing parts, while also considering options for the future such as solar panels. 

Not only will you see your heating bills go down, but you’ll also see your carbon footprint go down since you’ll hopefully use less energy to heat your home – a bonus for you and for the environment.

Smartens up the look of any home

Broken tiles, rotting fascia boards, moss, leaves, muck and even the odd frisbee might be found on your roof. While you aren’t always looking at it, it is part of the overall aesthetic of your home. A messy roof suggests you’ve given up and that inside there might be more chaos inside the property. A new roof can provide a sleek, tidy finish which means you can look at your home with pride – it might also make you stand out as one of the more modern homes on your road if you replace old, weathered materials with new ones.

Guarantees mean you don’t have to worry

Most reputable roofers will give you a guarantee on a new roof. ELT Home Improvements LTD provide a 10-year guarantee when we install a new roof for your home. This gives you peace of mind for years to come that any faults will be taken care of. Think of it as a protection on your investment, allowing you to sleep easy at night.

Is your roof old, outdated or damaged? All roofs need replacement eventually due to the constant weather and the advances in technology when it comes to materials. ELT Home Improvements LTD have over 20 years of experience in all elements of roofing – including re-roofing and new roofs. We use long-lasting materials to help protect your home and provide an immaculate finish which will keep your home looking fresh for years to come.
