What’s Your Home’s New Year’s Resolution?

With 2023 underway, we start everything fresh. And what better way to begin a year than with home remodeling? After all, home is where the heart is. 

Of course, you must consider what project to tackle first, and then what order should proceed to make the most of your home remodeling investments. After all, your home may require a roof replacement or possibly a new gutter system. New siding might be on the table, and let’s not forget interior remodeling. In fact, you may even go a step further and spring for an entirely new addition to your home.

When making your list, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to you that a roof replacement or roof repair, if needed, should be the very first home improvement project you tackle with the professionals at Tadlock Roofing. The roof protects everything under it, so there’s no sense in spending money on new kitchen cabinets if the roof is not in optimal shape to protect that investment. 

Start the Year with a New Roof

Investing in a new roof can be equated to investing in your 401k monthly. While it may not be the most glamorous home improvement project, the long-term investment is well worth your efforts. 

According to the latest research, the biggest cost recovery during resales comes from roof replacement. To put it in raw numbers, when we invest in a new roof, we are expected to see a 105% return. In other words, we will end up with an operating profit that well exceeds the initial investment expenses.

But reroofing doesn’t just increase the value of our home. Replacing old tiles and installing new ones will actually result in a curb appeal increase. As a result, more people will be interested in buying our home if we decide to sell it, and we can stand to earn a fair amount of money.

Aside from reroofing, other home remodeling projects that offer high investment returns include:

  • Hardwood refinishing
  • Upgrading the insulation in the attic
  • New wooden floor installation
  • New garage door installation

When Does a Roof Need Repairs?

Before we decide on reroofing our home, we should consult an expert. Professionals like the staff here at Tadlock Roofing will do a complete interior and exterior check of the roof. They will then provide an estimate to the homeowner, including the potential cost and materials best suited for the job. However, if the homeowner is unsure whether their home needs a new roof, there are several signs that can help them decide.

The Age of the Roof

If we take into account the weather, the material, and the overall home care, a typical roof ought to last anywhere between 20 and 30 years. Any roof older than that will most likely need replacement. However, some metal roofs can endure for up to 50 years with proper care.

Buckling and Curling Shingles

Shingles on old roofs tend to buckle and curl. Most of the time, this is the result of the elements, such as rain or snow. However, even new roofs can see this problem, and the most likely culprit there is improper installation.

Worn Roof Valleys

Due to its shape, a roof valley helps direct the water down during poor weather. Unfortunately, this area of the roof is often prone to leaking. And if shingles are falling apart or missing, nothing can control the water. Leaks and roof rot will inevitably follow.

Shingle Granules Found in the Gutters

Shingles contain granules that help prevent sun and water from damaging the roof. If we find these granules in the gutters, that means the shingles are deteriorating, and the elements are causing damage to our roof. The more of these granules we find, the more likely it is that our roof is falling apart and requires immediate repair.
