Have you ever looked at your home and thought about how the roof impacts the home’s overall curb appeal? Because your roof is an element that’s easily seen from the street, when it doesn’t look good, it impacts your entire home. Admittedly, curb appeal isn’t the only reason you should consider a new roof.
An Aging Roof Doesn’t Protect Either
If the shingles edges are curling, or they’re streaked or bubbling, have dents or even if some are missing, not only is your home’s curb appeal suffering, but chances are good your roofing isn’t protecting your home as it should. So, if you think your roof looks bad, call a roofing company and ask if it’s time for a new roof or if yours can be repaired.
New Products Look Better
If you have 3-tab shingles on your roof, it looks flat and one dimensional. Before shingles were the most common roofing material, wood shake and slate made up the majority of the roofs in the country. If you think about how either of those options looked, they had dimension and minor variation in color. Today’s architectural shingles recreate the look of both these products. Some are one color and others are color blends. Any of the available options will increase your home’s curb appeal.
You Can Prevent Your New Roof From Looking Bad
You may not realize it, but you can take some simple steps to help your new roof look great for as long as possible. First, make sure to keep debris from collecting on it. That means keeping your gutters clean too. Second, don’t let tree branches rub on the shingles, have your trees trimmed back from rubbing on the shingles. Lastly, have your roofing company provide you with regular roofing inspections. This helps correct minor issues before they start impacting your home’s curb appeal.
