4 Reasons you should get a roof restoration
dr_paint05 Apr 2017
When people do external makeovers on their home, they often forget all about the roof. Which seems strange, as a roof is one of the things that stands out the most when you look at a home. You could have the most beautifully painted home with lovely gardens and lawns, but if the roof is ugly, it majorly detracts from the overall appeal.
In this post we’ll be looking at 4 reasons you should get a roof restoration for your home.
#1 – It Looks Better
Yes, that’s obvious, but it does. A spruced up roof – whether pressure washed, or washed and painted – looks fantastic. It the icing on the cake, the cherry on top. It completes the entire picture. Why only do half the job? Get a roof restoration as well when you call the painters in to rejuvenate your home.
#2 – It Adds Value
That’s right. A roof restoration will definitely add value to your home. Anything that improves the aesthetic appeal of a property makes it more saleable for a start, and will generally add value to what the property is worth on the open market. Increasing the value of your home might not be your primary goal by getting a roof restoration, but it is an added bonus as a result.
#3 – Keep Your Home Cooler In Summer
There are painting products especially designed for rooves that reflect the heat away from your roof. Combine this with insulation in your ceiling and your home will stay much cooler during the summer months. This will also help you save on energy costs, like constantly running air conditioners to keep your home cool. A roof restoration can be a real money saver in the long-term, as well as making life at home much more comfortable.
#4 – Extend The Life Of Your Roof
Having your roof cleaned and then coated with paints purpose-made for the battering a roof receives from the weather can really extend the life of your roof. Many of these paints dry with a rubberised texture, allowing them to flex as your room does during temperature fluctuations. A roof restoration will give you peace of mind that your home is protected from above and your roof will outlast anything mother nature can throw at it. Another thing to note is that a build up of lichen, debris and mould can not only damage the roofing material, but over time it can also work its way inside the roof and start to deteriorate the roof structure.
