Replacing an old, worn roof can make your home more valuable, efficient, and appealing. In this entry, we talk in-depth about these benefits of roof replacement.
1. Great Return on Investment
Roofing projects make rewarding long-term investments. According to this year’s “Cost Vs. Value Report” by Remodeling magazine, in fact, a mid-range roof replacement in Alexandria, VA, and the rest of South Atlantic US can recoup up to 72.7% of your dollar. You can expect more value in your new roof if it’s backed by a strong manufacturer warranty. It’s an assurance that your roof will perform well and look beautiful for years to come.
2. Superior Energy Efficiency
Older, damaged roofs are not very energy-efficient. They allow heat to creep into your home during summer, and allow warm air to escape during winter. Replacing your old roof with a more efficient system can help you save on energy bills. For example, thanks to new technology developed by GAF, you can install special cooling shingles that reflect the heat of the sun, reducing the strain on your air conditioning.
Metal roofs can have excellent insulating properties too. Top roofers in Alexandria, Virginia, Lyons Contracting, install metal roofs that they bounce back the sun’s rays in summertime and trap heat during winter. They can reduce your energy spending by a significant amount throughout the year.
3. Unmatched Curb Appeal
Your roof is the most visible part of your home and can account for up to 40% of the overall look of your exteriors. A deteriorating roof will take away from your architecture’s beauty. You need to have it replaced with a better system if you want maximum appeal. Today roofs come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. Lyons Contracting offers a wide selection of styles that are sure to bring out the best in your home. Whether you want a shingle, slate, tile, or metal roof, we have you covered.
