What is Roofing?

September 02, 20222 min read

In general terms, roofing is the material used for constructing a building’s protection from the elements. There are many different types and styles of roofing for many different buildings. What many people do not realize is that It does a lot more than just keep people safe from things like rain, hail, snow and wind.

When deciding on what roofing best suits your needs, consider these three benefits:

Protection from the elements: The fundamental goal of roofing is to shield your home from elements such as hail, rain, snow and wind, however, it also protects against moisture getting into your home as well as extreme temperatures. A quality roof keeps moisture from seeping into your home exposing you and your family to mold and other danger substances that can grow from the moisture. 

Saves Money: A roof that is installed correctly, meaning the ventilation and insulation was properly put in, will keep out unwanted air drafts from entering your home. As an effect, the HVAC system will not have to work as hard to heat and cool your home, which saves you money year-round. This energy efficiency will also cut down your carbon footprint and overall energy costs. 

Increases the value of your home: Your roof takes up almost half your home’s exterior making one of the first impressions potential home buyers and visitors have. An old roof shows its age with cracks and discoloration. This might give the wrong impression to an otherwise beautiful home. A well maintained roof not only protects your home but also preserves the outside appearance. 

The roof is one of the most important parts of a home. A well installed roof will not only protect you and your family from earthly elements, but it can also save you money and increase the value of your home.
