Getting a new roof is already incredibly beneficial on its own, ensuring your home is always safe and protected against weather damage. But a roof replacement also gives you the opportunity to make a few upgrades that further improve your home’s protection and comfort. The trusted residential and commercial roofer in the area, Done-Right Roofing & Sheet Metal Ltd. discusses some of these excellent additions here.
1. Better Insulation. These two work in conjunction to keep your roof intact and longer lasting. An upgraded insulation ensures that heat and moisture from your interior living spaces doesn’t end up in the attic. This is especially important during the winter months–when the attic is not overheated, there’s less chance of snow melting on top of your roof and refreezing along the eaves, forming ice dams.
Better ventilation, meanwhile, actually does the same thing, but for a different purpose. It keeps the attic cool by ensuring continuous and efficient airflow in the space. This means there’s no accumulated heat that rises and bakes the shingles overhead, causing them to prematurely age. When investing in a roof replacement, consider updating your insulation and ventilation to make the new system last longer.
2. Higher Quality Gutters. Investing in a new roofing system while leaving your old and failing gutters untouched–that doesn’t seem like a good idea. By upgrading your gutters along with your roof, you’re sure that the former will be able to better handle the runoff coming down the latter. This means smoother draining performance that leaves your home’s walls and foundation free from possible water damage.
3. Well-Performing Gutter Covers. Since you’re updating your gutters to go with your new roof, then it just makes sense to invest in a gutter protection system (or gutter covers), as well. This helps your new gutters maintain their draining ability, and it makes this possible by filtering leaves and other loose debris so they don’t end up inside your gutters. Because gutter protection reduces the potential for congestion, it also lowers the need for regular gutter cleaning.
