If you discover that your roof has deteriorated, it may be necessary to replace it completely. Although this can be expensive in the short term, replacing a roof comes with a number of long term benefits.
An aging roof that is in a state of deterioration can be a safety hazard to everyone that lives under it. This is why the roofing materials you choose are so important. In most cases they will be determined by locality, along with the preferences of the property owners. The roof pitch or angle will determine the type of shingles you should work with. For instance, wood shingle shakes are well adapted to roofs with a steep pitch but are not ideal for a roof that is low pitched.
The roofing contractors based in NYC are well coordinated, and can operate as a team in a variety of weather conditions. While the most ideal seasons for roofing are between spring and fall, these contractors have no problem operating during winter. An area which is partially installed has to be completely dry prior to the covering layers being added. A professional roofing team is one that can complete a roof replacement quickly by taking advantage of periods which are dry.
Aside from safety and preventing a roof collapse, roof replacement also provides the benefit of a warranty. This means that, if for any reason you have problems once installation has been completed, you can contact the contractor for assistance. However, warranties are only made available from contractors who are certified. A good warranty is one which is extended, protecting the property owner for years.
The second major benefit of replacing your roof is the impact it will have on the appearance of the property. A new roof, when done correctly, can significantly increase a property’s value. The last thing you should want is a roof that is an eye sore, especially if you plan on selling it down the road. Those who sell their homes after replacing the roof will often get seventy percent of the money they invested back, which does not include other improvements.
Finally, adding a new roof to your home will give you outstanding energy efficiency. This is important in New York and the eastern seaboard in general, which is notorious for having some of the highest energy costs in the country. The building will be better insulated, which means it will be warm and cozy during the winter and cool during the summer, and your monthly power bills will fall accordingly.
