When Stretching Your Dollar Backfires

With the holidays approaching, many homeowners are closely watching their end of the year budget. It could be tempting for you to put off major home renovation projects, like investing in a new roof for your home, until the spring. After all, you do have gifts to buy this month.

However, if your roof is old or damaged, pushing off getting a new one can be detrimental to your home and to your budget. At Stanley Exteriors, we have seen homeowners end up paying a significant amount in damages caused by a roof that they tried to get to last one more winter. Here are just a few complications that can happen if you put off your roof replacement this winter season.

Leaking and Water Damage
Your roof is your home’s first defense against the harsh Chicagoland weather elements. If your roof is already damaged, or is old, you run the risk of having an ineffective protection against heavy rains, ice, or snow. Homeowners who choose to wait on replacing their roof are often subject to water damage in their attic or along their ceiling.

With extra water accumulating in your home, thanks to a damaged roof, homeowners can find themselves with a significant mold problem. Mold spreads quickly and can be very expensive to eliminate come spring.

Poor Timing
Often, homeowners realize they should replace their roof in the middle of the winter season. This can be nearly impossible to reliably schedule due to frigid temperatures and unsafe weather conditions for our installation team.

Is your roof old and ready to be replaced? Don’t give in to the temptation to push the investment for one more year. Instead, choose to have our team of professional installers give you a roof that will keep your home warm and protected this winter season. You will be glad that you gave yourself a gift of a new roof!

Give us a call for a consultation and estimate. We can help give you the roof you need before the holidays arrive.
