Is The New Year The Time For A New Roof?


If your roof is getting up there in years, you might be thinking about an eventual replacement. There's no time like the present to move forward with your roof replacement plans. Here are just some of the reasons why the New Year might be the perfect time to contact local roofing contractors about a new roof installation.

Don't Keep Repairing When You Can Replace

It's true that any one repair job is likely going to be much less expensive than the cost of installing a brand-new roof. But take a look back and figure out just how often you've been calling a local contractor for help. If you are repairing your roof more than once a year, chances are high that it's starting to deteriorate on you. Simply trying to patch things up over and over again may not be the most-efficient way to deal with the problem. You could also be leaving an underlying issue to linger and eventually turn into a more expensive problem. Make a resolution this year to finally get your roof replaced so you don't need to keep calling the repairman every few months so they can take care of yet another problem.

 The New Year Brings the Worst of Winter With It

While winter technically starts in late December, chances are good that your neck of the woods has been dealing with colder weather — if not ice and snow — for at least a little while. With the New Year's arrival, you can be sure that the worst weather Mother Nature has to offer is likely right around the corner.

This is why it's a good idea to get your new roof installed now instead of waiting for the spring. Riding out the upcoming harsh winter with your current patchwork roof could be asking for trouble.

Save Money This Year and Every Year on Home Insurance

Yes, it's true that replacing your roof can be a large expense, and you might not want to part with the funds right at the start of the new year. But consider that once the roof is installed, you will likely qualify for an update to your home insurance policy. A new roof will make it much less likely that your home will encounter a variety of different issues, and this drop in risk can also drop your home insurance premiums.

Roofing Fundamentals: What To Know Before Replacement

When it came time to install a new roof on my home, I had no idea where to start. In fact, I was exploring roofing options that were a really poor fit in my climate. It wasn't until I reached out to a local roofer that I got some lessons on how to choose the right roofing material for my home and the weather exposure it is subjected to. I built this site to share my journey, including the mistakes I made and the things that I learned along the way. If you are considering replacing your home's roof, I hope that the information here can help to guide you through the process.
