Home Improvement ideas seem to be never-ending. New and fresh ideas posted regularly on Pinterest excite the homeowner for exciting changes. Some common ideas are to whitewash a brick fireplace, install a shiplap accent wall or remove a popcorn ceiling. DIY’ers are never bored with ideas like these! But are they all worthwhile? Do they offer a return on investment? 

Some excellent return-on-investment ideas for your home could be new landscaping, a kitchen remodel, or window replacements. But what about putting in a new roof? Reports have shown that a new roof can bring a 68% increase in investment. Not only does a new roof offer an increase in home value, but the curb appeal to the passersby is a bonus. 

What are some other reasons to consider a new roof in 2023?

Energy Efficiency

Installing a new roof can seal up any open gaps that were present with the old roof. Additionally, new insulation can be installed to help with the temperature barrier between the home’s interior and the outdoors. When the proper amount of insulation is in a home, the cold temperatures of winter do not enter the home, and likewise, the summer heat is blocked. This will allow the heating and cooling system to run more effectively and the monthly bills will be diminished. Saving money on the monthly energy bill is a bonus going into 2023! 


Asphalt shingles and cedar shake shingles have a lifespan of nearly 25 years while metal roofing is closer to 50 years. Perhaps it is time to rethink your current roof and the time frame it has left. Installing a new system can ensure your family’s safety and memories for years to come. 

Safer and Healthier Environment

An older roof can present problems with gaps in the material, causing moisture to seep through to the underlayment and insulation. When this occurs, there is little chance of fully drying out creating an excellent environment for mold and mildew growth. Many have allergies to mold and mildew, and health problems can exacerbate with damp insulation. As a new roof is installed, the old material is destroyed and replaced with fresh, therefore the family can enjoy a healthier life in the home. 

Secondly, some critters are great at finding those little holes in roofing materials and creating homes in them. As the critter families grow, the home must also. The holes are increased and the damage has begun. A regular inspection by a trusted roofing company can help find these homes and put an end to the destruction. A new roof will easily remove the critters and help them relocate.
