How Materials Impact the Price of Installing a Roof
We often are from potential clients, “How much are new roofs to install?” Many factors combine to determine the cost to install a new roof. Roofing materials chosen greatly influence roof prices; more so than anything else. You can purchase a roof made from asphalt shingles, wood, metal or slate. Asphalt shingle roofs are the least expensive roofing material. They also have a nice lifespan of about 20 years. Slate roofs are the most expensive roofs you can buy, but they can last up to 200 years! You might base your choice of roofing material on your home’s roof pitch, your budget, and the length of time you plan to live in your home. When you call Kelbie Home Improvement, Inc. for information on roofing prices, we will happily share the options and styles that will fit your goals and budget.
Real Value of a Roof Installation Versus Its Cost
Replacing a roof is a significant investment, but it has a big impact on your home’s protection and its value. According to a Remodeling Magazine report, up to 62 percent of roof installation costs can be recovered when a home is sold after completion of a roofing project. Besides being an attractive selling point for home buyers, replacing your roof will make your home more energy efficient. Old roofs leak climate-controlled air, which makes your air conditioning and heating systems work harder to maintain comfortable temperatures in your home. Kelbie Home Improvement, Inc. has been replacing and installing new roofs since 1982.
