WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF NOT RENOVATING YOUR ROOF?

The roof of your property is starting to look old or show some small problems. However, given the costs that repairs can generate, the idea has crossed your mind to postpone this task until later. After all, what could happen if you wait a little longer? At René Perron Couvreurs in Montreal, we know how important roof renovation is for the entire building. Read this article to know the repercussions of such negligence…

Roof lifespan

When shingles split or peel off, or a membrane tears or warps, the roof can no longer adequately protect the home from bad weather. Failing to repair these problems while they are in their early stages will cause them to get worse over time. Result? The entire roof will have to be redone, much sooner than expected…

Building insulation

A weak roof can directly affect the energy efficiency of a property. In winter, heat escapes through the roof, and it's the turn of coolness in summer. It is therefore all the costs in terms of energy expenditure which rise to obtain the same performance results. Pretty bad for the wallet!

Occupant safety

When roof problems worsen, whether it is water infiltration, mold, humidity or any other inconvenience, it is the safety of everyone who occupies the building that is concerned. This damage can affect the structural integrity of the building and, over time, lead to serious damage, such as roof sagging!

Resale value

While a new roof doesn't necessarily raise the value of your property, the opposite can hurt interest from potential buyers. They will think twice before purchasing your building, since they will have to pay a large amount to redo the roof.


Cost of insurance

A recently renovated roof allows you to make attractive savings with several insurers. In certain cases, a roof that is too old or damaged results in insurers refusing to cover it. In other cases, proper roofing provides a discount in areas with special weather conditions.
