However, it is important to note that the roof should be among the list of priorities when you choose to invest you money into your home.

The roof can be referred to as the first line of protection against the outside elements. You will be putting yourself and your family in a lot of risk if you choose to neglect the roof when it needs replacing or repairing.
Most homeowners are faced with making a decision of whether to tear off the old roof and build a new one. This choice requires you to consider several factors. Many professional roofers will advice you as a homeowner to leave the old roof so as to save yourself a lot of money and time.

However there are a few disadvantages and drawbacks to choosing to do this. Leaving the old and torn roofing is against the code. Therefore you will be required to-do your research and find out if it is against the code in your area to overlay the roof that has been destroyed and needs repairing before you make a decision. When you choose to build a new roof over the old roof you may require a warranty to do so. This is because the two layer of roofing can potentially overload the building structure with the weight that is not necessary.

The most important advantage of removing the old roof before replacing it with the new is that the professional roofers will be able to tell you the damage that there may be with the roof e.g. a leak, a case of infestations of either pests and algae or even rooting wood. This information will be able to be used in making the new roof better and useful therefore giving the owner a fresh start with their roofing renovations.

It is important that the homeowners take a good look at their budget before making any financial decisions. If the budget will allow for the replacement of a roof then a new roof will b a good choice as this way the home can be sold easily and will be worth more. Those potential customers in the market looking for a new home will in most cases be attracted to the homes that have new roofs as they are assured that they will not have to replace the roof anytime in the near future.

The banks are also most likely to approve loans to the homes that have new and improved roofs, as this kind of homes will sell faster. You may not have the finance to completely replace the roof therefore you could chose to replace part of the roof or the broken and misplaced shingles if the roof of one that is made of shingles that have been attached to the roof by an adhesive. This adhesive is easily destroyed on the case of strong wind or a storm hence shingles are easily blown away.

If as a home owner you are still unsure of whether or not you want to replace the roof then you could visit a roofing company or call a roofing professional and contractor to inspect your roof so that they can give you advice on whether to replace the roof or not. A new and well-installed roof will not only make the value of your home increase but also make the home safe and comfortable for you and your family members.
