Your roof is the first line of defense against the elements. If it’s damaged or compromised, the chance of underlying water damage, leaks, and even skyrocketing energy bills increases significantly. When it comes to maintaining your roof
, you know that having the repairs done by an experienced roofing company can make all the difference in keeping your home safe. However, what most homeowners fail to realize is that hiring a professional roofing team to maintain their roof system can have far reaching effects both on their budget and the roof itself. Here are a few ways that hiring an experienced professional to keep your roof in good condition can help save you money in the long run.
Preserves Your Warranty
Most roofing materials come with a manufacturer warranty that protects against premature failure or damage related to underlying defects. However, the materials must be installed and maintained by an experienced professional in order for the manufacturer to honor the warranty. If you install them yourself or hire a handyman that’s not licensed or experienced in the roofing industry, the warranty may no longer be honored by the manufacturer. If the materials fail, you’ll have to pay out-of-pocket for any replacements or repairs.
Lowers Insurance Premiums
Believe it or not, your homeowner’s insurance policy often covers extensive
roof repairs or replacements. However, if your existing roof is in poor condition due to inadequate maintenance, your insurance company may end up charging you a higher monthly premium. After all, the worse condition the roof is in, the more likely you are to need to submit a claim on your policy. Every claim costs the insurance company money and if your home appears to need more repairs or if you have a history of filing roofing claims, you may end up paying more for your coverage. Hiring a professional roofing company to maintain your roof ensures that the roof is insurable, and helps keep your premiums low by reducing the frequency of claims.
Prevents Catastrophic Failure of the System
Inexperienced DIY roofers and handymen are not always familiar with the signs of underlying damage that puts your home at risk. Even if they make routine repairs, there’s the chance that the repairs will fail, leaving you with a weakened roof system. If this happens, the cost of repairs, even with your homeowner’s insurance providing some of the funds, can be extraordinarily high, destroying your budget and your savings. Trusting a professional roofing company to handle all of your repairs ensures that the cost of your annual maintenance will be lower with fewer unexpected repairs being needed over time.
