What are the benefits of a new roof in 2023?


As listed above, if the damage is too great, a new roof will need to be considered. Once an area has become damaged, the area is compromised, giving way to future complications if untreated. Consider replacing the roof with durable asphalt shingles.  

Asphalt shingles are inexpensive and easily obtainable, making them the most popular roofing option. Many asphalt shingles options can add flair, dimension, and distinction to your home, through the various color options available.


Each roof has a particular lifespan. Asphalt shingles typically last around 25 years, with regular maintenance. If you are reaching the end of your roof’s lifespan, consider replacing it before the situation becomes dire. It is better to consider while there is time to weigh your options, rather than be in a panic situation and have to decide quickly. 


A new fresh roof can add value to your home and property. The return on investment is about 68% of the investment cost, so this is something to consider if you are looking to sell in 2023. The curb appeal of a new clean roof delights the potential buyer as soon as they drive up to your property.
