According to the latest Residential Remodeling Index, from Metrostudy, remodeling activity is continuing its five-year growth climb. Simply put, more people are choosing to remodel and renovate their homes – and this includes roofing projects. Read on as Tedrick’s Roofing discusses more.
Why Are More People Remodeling?
There are many factors that contribute to the current strength of remodeling and renovation across the country. The main reason is economics – low mortgage rates, strong existing home sales, as well as good job gains mean that more people see remodeling and renovations as more economical than selling their old home and then buying a new one.
Since housing affordability is still an issue in some sectors, people see remodeling their existing home as a more long-term investment than moving and then purchasing a new home. There’s more security in sticking to your old home, after all, since you need to consider your employment options when you do move.
Roofing and Remodeling
Our roofing company foresees that more people will do more roofing projects in the coming years. The roof is usually one of the most forgettable parts of the home, but it’s necessary to bolster its strength when you do a remodeling project since you’re effectively making your home “age in place”.
Our team suggests replacing your roofing if your current one is nearing its 25th year. Standard asphalt shingle roofing has a lifespan of around 15 to 20 years – 25 in some cases. Any roof repair you do once it reaches this threshold will end up costing as much as a replacement, so it’s better to just replace the entire roofing.
