Never Avoid Replacing Your Roof

Posted on August 23, 2018

Roof Replacement Davenport

The roof is one of the most essential aspects of your Davenport home. As a homeowner, you expect a lot from your roof. You want it to protect you from the common harsh winter weather as well as from the strong summer sun. Because the roof is always exposed to these weather elements, regular maintenance is necessary to keep your roof in optimal shape. 

However, even those homeowners who keep the most rigid maintenance plans will eventually need a new roof - roofing materials aren't meant to last forever. If you start to notice some signs like the roof shingles starting to curl, fade, or even break, it may be time to get a new roof. Nobody likes to have an unexpected expense. However, you shouldn't avoid installing a new roof on your Davenport home. 


No matter what time of year, your roof needs to be in top condition to protect your home from the intense Davenport weather. By choosing us at Mainstream Home Improvement to install your roof, you will get much more than simply a great looking roof. Knowing what is expected from a roof in our area, we do just as much work, if not more, underneath the shingles. 

Over the past few decades, roofing technology has advanced. This has allowed us to further protect your house during the roof installation process. To protect your home from water damage, we install a both an ice and water shield, as well as a synthetic felt to the roof before the shingles are applied. As older roofs will not have had access to these innovative methods of protection, replacing one with these newer methods will greatly prolong the roof's life (and hopefully protect your home from any extensive water damage that can occur through the roof).  

Worth The Money 

Not only will a new roof help cut down the cost of any damage that may occur, a new roof actually has an over 100% return of investment (ROI). Recent research done by both the National Association of Remodeling Industry and the National Association of Realtors have shown that replacing a roof will make back around 105% of the money invested into the roof. This means that whatever money you spend to replace your roof will be returned to you upon resale, in addition to another 5% on top of that.

With this guaranteed ROI, as well as the knowledge that new roofing technology will better protect your home from any potential damage costs, there really is no reason not to replace a roof that is showing wear and tear.

Getting Started

Whether you are looking to spruce up your home before selling, or are planning to stay put for many more years, there are no compelling reasons not to replace an aging roof. With the intense weather that Davenport can experience, having a solid roof over your head is necessary to protect your home. Additionally, a new roof has been shown to pay for itself - and then some - when it comes to the resale value of a home.
