Waterproof, Windproof and Weatherproof: The Perfect Roof for Your Climate

Why You Should Redo Your Roof

by Edgar Cruz

If you are going to remodel your home, the roof is a great place to start. Exterior remodels definitely give you more return on your investment because they impact the curb appeal of your property and make it look newer. This is particularly true when it comes to your roof. The roof is perhaps the most defining feature of your home exterior style. So, when you change your roof material, you're basically changing the way your entire home looks. This article explains why it is so smart to replace your roof, and one great product you should consider.

Reduce Your Bills

One of the best things about roof replacement is that it can immediately reduce your utility bills. A new roof can add insulation to your property, protect it from the elements, and ultimately help to reduce your monthly electricity bills. Of course, it may take years for to earn all the money back that you spend on a new roofing material, but you need to think about all of the other benefits it will give your home.

Increase Your Property Value

Since a new roofing material is going to update your style and make your home look newer, it is also going to increase the value of your property. This is why it is so popular among homeowners you have an eye on selling their home in the new future. So, you can save money on a monthly basis, and possibly earn money back when it comes time to sell your home.

Choosing a Great Material

If you are thinking about investing in a new roofing material for your property, you should probably consider a practical, low maintenance project. Clay tiles are one of the most popular residential products on the market, because they have a classic style that is hard to beat. Many people think of Spanish or Italian style roofs when they think of clay. However, there are many glazed and/or painted clay tiles that don't just have a natural terra-cotta color. That is, you can find clay in pretty much any color imaginable.

Glazed Tiles

Clay tiles are practical because they are so affordable, yet they are long-lasting, and easy to maintain. This is particularly true if you choose a glazed product. Glazed products are nice because water won't soak into the terra-cotta, and you don't need to worry about moss or mold growing on top of it.

It is easy to see why replacing your roof with a material like clay is such a smart investment.

Waterproof, Windproof and Weatherproof: The Perfect Roof for Your Climate

Hi, welcome to my blog. My name is Wendy, and after traveling through many parts of the world as I worked on a degree in anthropology with a minor in architecture, I learned a lot. I saw how people took different approaches to the same issue (putting a roof on their home), but more importantly, I noticed how those approaches were dictated by the climate and culture in the area. Unfortunately, I think a lot of people in North America build roofs that are traditional rather than roofs that are the right fit for the climate. If you are interested in exploring the latter idea, I'm here to help. These posts look at the best way to get a roof that protects you from the elements. Explore, enjoy and send your friends over to my blog. Thanks!
