Should My Tax Refund Go Towards a New Roof?

If you are receiving a tax refund this year, you may be tempted to indulge and spend it on something trivial and inconsequential.  Wouldn’t it be better to invest your refund into something constructive like your roof? Is your roof coming to the end of its lifespan?  Did you discover leaks after the winter rains?  It may be time for a roof replacement.  If you think your roof can last you several more years but has some issues, maybe getting minor repairs can help prolong its life and give you more time to prepare for a full replacement.

Roof Replacement

Everyone knows that a roof replacement is a major expense.  Maybe having that extra cash from your tax refund can help soften the blow to your bank account and make it a perfect time to initiate this home improvement project.  Damaged or missing shingles can often lead to further damage of the roof structure, and leaving them unrepaired for a long period of time may damage your roof beyond a simple repair.  A professional roofing contractor like Williams Roofing Company can tell you whether your roof needs replaced or a repair.

Roof Repairs

If only a section(s) of your roof is damaged, but the main structure is still intact and in good working order, you may be able to repair the damaged section and restore its full functionality.  If you have major leaks that are damaging your home, stopping those leaks can halt a number of other problems that can make your situation much worse.  These issues include, mold growth, structural integrity, or even loss of heat through your home’s attic.  Investing your tax refund in roof repairs can prevent these issues from becoming worse and will lengthen your roof’s lifespan.

Roof Maintenance

Regular roof maintenance is a perfect way to prevent roof problems from becoming serious issues.  Regular maintenance will often include an inspection for problems that have developed in addition to minor repairs and cleaning services to keep your roof functioning properly.  Maintenance can also include gutter inspections, cleaning and more.   For a roofing system that may be reaching the end of its lifespan, regular maintenance can help prevent any small problems from becoming serious issues that may lead to a full roof replacement.  Depending on the age and condition of your roof, regular maintenance should be done once or twice per year.
