Thinking of what to do with your tax return? While repairing or getting a new roof may not be your first choice, it is practical and a smart investment.
If your roof has seen better days or you plan on selling your home in a couple of years, you will be glad you used your tax return on your roof.
Why Invest Your Tax Return To Improve Your Roof?
It Protects Your Home
A home is probably the biggest investment most people make, maintenance is necessary. A roof is responsible for protecting your house from damage and moisture. And when you notice a leak, lifted shingles, or a dark area on your roof at the beginning of the rainy season, you will regret not putting that tax refund into your roof.
Increase The Value Of Your Home
A new roof adds significant value and is more attractive to potential buyers, if you plan on selling your home in a few years. The National Association of Realtors recent survey revealed 99% of those survey stated a new roof adds to the overall appeal of the home and 83% said a property with a 'stylish' roof sold easier.
Improve Energy Efficiency
Technology has come a long way, especially in roofing materials. Today’s energy efficient asphalt shingles reflect solar heat, which keeps your home cooler. Saving you money on your cooling bill.
"A recent study for a Florida utility shows that a white reflective roof can reduce space cooling energy use by 17- 23%. A large part of the advantage comes from cooling the attic space where cooling ducts are often located. However, if you are re-roofing a home with composition shingles, choosing the lightest white color can reduce cooling costs by about 4% at no added cost." University of Central Florida
