The calendar page flips to a new month, and a new year and our thoughts focus on New Year’s Resolutions and how to make 2023 better than 2022. Many people focus on health improvements, relationship building, and personal care.
But what about your property? Do you ever think about improving your home and property? Perhaps this year, a focus could be directed toward new gutters, new siding, or a new roof. Let’s take one of those and focus on it today. How can your home benefit from a new roof in 2023?
Here are some ways a new roof can benefit you and your home.
Increased Energy Savings
Who doesn’t like keeping more of that hard-earned money in your wallet rather than spending on energy bills? By installing a new roofing system, and making sure the proper amount of insulation is installed, your home can be more energy efficient. According to the EPA, the average homeowner can save 15% on heating and cooling costs by adding insulation in attics, crawl spaces, and basement rim joists. That can average out to approximately $200 per year in savings.
A new roof increases energy efficiency in your home by up to 30% according to the United States Department of Energy. Of course, your specific home and type of roofing system do play a role in the savings, so it would be wise to speak with a roofing contractor and learn how you can save on those energy costs.
Increased Home Value
Are you planning to move in 2023? Installing a new roof could greatly benefit the selling price of your home. Or perhaps, you just desire to increase the value of your home. Remodelings 2019 Cost vs. Value Report states that the average homeowner spends approximately $22,636 on a new asphalt roof, however the value of the home increases by nearly $15,427 which is about 68% of the investment.

This is something we probably don’t think about much, however, a new roof can help keep your family healthier. Older roofs may have a few leaks or gaps in the surface, causing the water and moisture to seep into the insulation, creating mold and mildew. A regular inspection of your roofing system may benefit in eliminating future health concerns.
An additional benefit to a new roof would be the added safety it can provide. A strong new system can hold up better against strong storms, winds, and hail. An older asphalt system may have weakened through the years, and not be able to withstand the elements. Of course, having your current roofing system inspected by a trusted company can help you to know if a new roofing system is advisable for the safety of you, your family, and your possessions.
