Is it time to invest in a roof replacement? While roof repairs can be cost effective in certain situations, they can become expensive if they need to be done frequently. If your roof is leaking, needs frequent repairs, or just looks old, it might be time to replace it.
Evaluate the cost of ongoing repairs compared to the cost of a brand new roof and take charge of your roofing situation with a complete replacement. We’ve been serving our clients across Surrey since 1980 so we are well placed to advise on the benefits of a roof replacement.
Top 6 Benefits of Investing in a Roof Replacement
When it’s time to replace your roof, you can expect several benefits that will make the investment worthwhile.
Increased Property Value If you are looking to sell your home, a new roof can be a valuable asset in the property market. It offers a number of benefits that can be passed on to the next buyer, including aesthetic appeal, reduced maintenance costs, and increased value.
If you are considering selling your home, a new roof is an investment that is likely to pay off. It can help you to sell your home for a higher price and reduce the amount of time it takes to sell.
Energy Efficiency Heat rises, so roofs are a major source of heat loss in homes. To improve energy efficiency, roofs should be well-insulated and have no gaps. The colour of the roof can also affect its heating abilities, with dark colours being better for absorbing heat in cold climates. A new roof could save you a couple of hours of heating per cold day, and completely reduce the need in the warmer months!
Health Benefits A leaky roof can lead to mould and mildew, which can cause respiratory problems and other health issues. Getting a new roof can help to prevent these problems and improve your health.
Safety It can be difficult to see your roof as a threat but old roofs can be dangerous if they aren’t maintained or replaced if needed. Loose or cracked tiles and unstable interior beams can have their level of risk exacerbated by storms or heavy rain, leaving them in an unsafe state. Modern roofing also offers fire-proof materials and specifications ensure that fire spreads far slower
Aesthetic Appeal Let’s not forget about the aesthetic benefits of a new roof!
There are so many different types of tiles and other roof coverings on the market, so you’re sure to find one that suits your style. For example, slate roofs have a natural, classic look, while modern synthetic roofs come in a variety of exciting colours and textures. Not sure which roofing material to go for?

Peace of Mind Finally, and in our opinion, the most important benefit of a roof replacement is that it will provide you with peace of mind. Once a new roof is installed, there will be less maintenance to perform and less to worry about when bad weather strikes.
