A roof is one of the most expensive parts of your house. It serves a large purpose, so it is important to not skimp on the crucial materials that make up your roof. There are times where your roof may be costing you in ways that you did not even realize. Here are a few of the most common ways that Paradigm Roofing sees people paying too much for their roof.
Heating & Cooling Costs
Did you know that your roof has the ability to impact your heating and cooling costs year-round? Your roof may be costing you thousands of dollars in additional energy usage and you would have no idea. Proper ventilation and insulation is crucial in keeping your energy costs down. During a hot summer day, go up into your attic. The attic should not be exceedingly hotter than the rest of your home. If you suspect you may need additional ventilation, call a professional roofer. They will be able to let you know the most cost effective manner of installing additional ventilation.
Leaks in your roof can cost you an arm and a leg in water damage. If you are having frequent leaking with your roof, it may be time to consider replacement. While the initial cost of a new roof can be hefty, the risk of water logging key support of your home and toxic mold growth exceeds the price substantially. If you are having more than an occasional small leak, you need to seek the advice of a professional roofer.
