Construction & Contractors Blog

Renovations are going to be a good investment that adds value to your home, but you want to know where you want to invest in improvements. If your roof is old and needs aa replacement, it may be time to start thinking about a new roof. There are a lot of choices for the materials and improvements to consider for the roof renovations. Some of the roof choices you may want to consider for your renovations include:

  • Changes to Home Exterior—While renovating your home, there could be some changes that you want to make to the exterior design. Installing a new roof will give you a few choices for making changes to the exterior. You can do things like adding a covered porch, remodel the entrance with a covered roof area or add more architectural details to your home with improvements to your roof design. Ask your roofing service about helping with these minor remodeling details where the roofing is going to be installed on your home. 
  • Using Different Roofing Materials—When investing in home renovations and a new roof, you may want to consider using alternatives to asphalt shingles. These materials can be things like shake, synthetic slate, and metal roofing materials. Using the right asphalt shingle alternatives can also help extend the life of your new roof, which will reduce the cost of home upkeep due to roof repairs and replacements.
  • Energy Improvements for the New Roof—There are also a lot of options for energy improvements when renovating your home and installing a new roof. You can start by updating the insulation in the attic and other areas of your home. You can also improve the efficiency of roofing with the right improvements to the underlayment and roofing materials that reduce energy loss.
  • Protecting Your Home From Roof Wear and Leaks—The problem areas of your roof can cause issues with wear and leaks that you want to solve when the new roofing is installed. Ask about making changes to reduce wear in areas that are most vulnerable. Also, you can ask about using rubber membrane reinforcements to stop leaks and zinc strips to prevent problems with moss and lichen that damage roofing materials.

Choosing the right roofing materials will give you more from your investment in renovations and a new roof. You can contact a roofing service to talk to them about some of these solutions when you have your new roof installed.
