Are you considering reroofing your home but not sure if it’s needed? To help you decide, here are West Oahu Roofing (WOR) customers’ top five reasons on why they decided to reroof:

• Old roofs. Homes built before the mid-’90s are ready for re-roofing. These homes should be re-roofed soon to prevent damages, such as roof leaks, to the interior of your home.

• Roof leaks. Roof leaks can be fixed with simple repairs while others may need new roofs. WOR will give you an honest evaluation on how to remedy the problem. The longer you wait, the chances of added costs due to repairs increases.

• Rooftop photovoltaic (PV). Many homeowners in Hawaii are taking advantage of rooftop solar. Before PV is installed, make sure your roof is evaluated. Reroofing after PV installations are subject to additional costs to remove and reinstall PV panels.

• Home cooling. Older roofs are usually dark in color, which traps extra heat in your home. New roofs have heat-reflective, energy-saving characteristics that make your home cooler.

• Home sale. Not only does reroofing take care of all the roofing issues, it also adds to the curb appeal and increases the value of your home. When selling a house after a new roof is installed, the added value of the home is approximately 15-20 percent.
