As enthusiastic roofing contractors, we are passionate about the potential of your roof. Your roof can do a lot more than protect your home from rain and other forms of precipitation. With a little care and attention (along with one or two adjustments) it can increase the value of your home, save you money and give you extra space. But how can a humble roof do all this?
Your property’s value is connected to its appearance and visual appeal. A beautiful, picturesque roof can add thousands to your property’s market value. If you have a gorgeously old-fashioned vintage roof, having it restored to its full glory can boost your home’s value to a significant degree. If you have a more normal, modern roof, you might like to transform it into a vibrant, ultra-modern green roof that can provide a space for nature while giving your house extra kerb appeal.
As we’ve mentioned before, your roof can be used to reduce your energy expenditure quite dramatically. Firstly, you can have it fitted with solar panels, which will allow you to generate a significant portion of the electricity you use. Naturally, this will cut a huge chunk off your electric bill, because you’ll no longer have to pay energy companies for all the power you use. You can also add roof insulation to help better regulate the temperature in your home, which will save you money on your heating bill and air conditioning.
If you have a flat roof, it can be turned into a spacious roof garden with relatively few changes. Meanwhile, if you have a slanted roof that conceals a loft, you might want to convert that loft into a bedroom. However, you may need to make adjustments to the interior of the roof first. In either case, if you’re willing to make the investment, you can change your roof in ways that will give you a lot of extra space.
Here at Woodstock Roofing, we can carry out roof repairs and make any adjustments you need to your roof. We can also install solar panels or green roofing and carry out heritage work on beautiful old roofs. If you want to get the most out of your roof, get in touch with us today.
