Roof Replacement? A Wise Decision
Many homeowners think of kitchen and bathroom renovations as adding to the value of their home. Roofing does not readily come to mind, but it is equally valuable. According to Remodeling’s “Cost vs. Value 2013 Report,” replacing a roof yields a 63 percent return on investment (ROI), which is on par with a bathroom or major kitchen remodel.
Replacing a roof is worth the expense and protects your entire structure. This is a job only done once or twice in a lifetime, so take care to choose wisely. Mold and moisture, leaks, higher energy bills than in the past, and old age are all good reasons to put on a new roof.
Choose the Right Roof Type
Wind resistance, algae resistance and energy-efficiency are all factors to take into consideration when choosing a roof. Shingle roofing is by far the most popular roofing material, although LaBelle Roofing is also highly skilled in providing rubber roofing.
Choose the Right Shingles
When choosing shingles, take the time to choose color and brand, as a roof is something you will have for a long time. Ask us for references for specific color and brands, so that you can drive by and see our past work and refine your preferences.
Bring Light into Your Home
Our skylight division, Wayland Skylights, can also provide an estimate for a skylight installation to bring light into your home. Installing skylights along with a new roof is prudent to do, as solar skylights currently carry a 30% tax credit.
LaBelle Roofing is fully insured for liability and workers compensation, and is happy to provide a certificate as well as warranties.
