Roofing systems have an average lifespan of about 30 years depending on the material. This means you’ll probably need to replace your roof at least once in your lifetime. Because it happens so rarely, most homeowners tend to tack on additional upgrades to their roof replacements to further increase its value.

One of the most common upgrades people include in their roof replacement is installing gutter caps or some other type of gutter protection system. This helps protect your gutters and downspouts from clogging issues and keeps your roof safe from water-related damage. You should also consider the following projects.

Attic Insulation

A well-insulated attic can add a few years to your roof’s lifespan. Finishing this upgrade before winter can also save you on your heating bills as well as protect your roof against the formation of ice dams.

Roof Ventilation

Proper ventilation can allow your roof to “breathe.” Ask your roofer about installing soffit and ridge vents to provide hot and humid air a point to exit your roof and attic space safely, which could help keep your roof in good shape for years to come.

Seamless Gutters

Consider replacing your old sectional gutters with a seamless one instead. Seamless gutters are easier to maintain and much less prone to clogging problems. They also look better overall, which could boost your home’s curb appeal.

Gutter Helmet® and Helmet Heat®

Gutter caps like Gutter Helmet® are an effective way of keeping fallen leaves and other debris from blocking up your gutters and downspouts. Use this in conjunction with Helmet Heat® Ice Reduction System, and you’ll never have to worry about gutter maintenance ever again.

New Flashing

Don’t forget to ask your roofer to use new flashing strips to keep your roof watertight. Reusing old flashing might seem like an economical choice, but it could prove problematic in the long run.
