Installing the right roof over your head can do more than keep out the weather; it can help keep money in your pocket. Investing a bit more money into your roof upfront can end up saving lots of money in the long run. There are several ways that a roofing system and its products can greatly benefit a homeowner.
Return on Investment (ROI) on the roof
According to home advisor, a new roof installed on your business or house will bring back a value of 62.9% on the cost of the roof.
Class 4 Impact Rated Shingles.
A Class 4 Impact rated shingle is designed by the manufacturer to have a much higher hail resistance than the average shingle. A class 4 shingle must pass stringent testing through the manufacture and Underwriters Laboratories before it passes the UL-2218 test and gets its class 4 impact rated stamp of approval. Insurance companies like the assurance of a superior hail impact rated product on the roof and many Insurance providers offer a substantial discount off the annual premium. Ask your insurance provider what discounts they offer with impact-rated shingles.
Increased ventilation with properly balancing attic airflow can significantly reduce attic temperatures. Reduced attic temperatures will result in a cooler house in the summer and a noticeable decrease in your energy and cooling bills. A cooler attic space will also increase the lifespan of your roof, saving you money while staying cool at the same time.
