3 Reasons to Spend Your Tax Refund on Your Roof

Getting a tax refund this year? Why not take that money and invest it back into your greatest asset - your home. If you haven't done any roof maintenance lately, there's no time like the present. The sooner you make repairs or replace your roof, the better off you'll be.

Here are 3 smart reasons to spend this year's tax refund on your roof.

1. Spend a little now and save big down the road.

The roof is often a part of the house people simply assume is fine. Rarely do they climb up on the roof to check out the condition of the shingles, remove debris or make sure a branch from that lovely oak tree in the front yard isn't resting heavily on the roof.

Like any other part of your house, your roof requires maintenance. Tri-County Roofing offers a roof tune-up for $249, which includes replacing a few missing shingles, cleaning the gutters/debris and checking the sealants. That simple inspection can extend the life of your roof by five years or more. Plus, catching problems early help you avoid costly issues down the road.

2. Remember Hurricane Matthew?

Last October, the Charleston area battened down the hatches and braced for a hurricane. The storm’s strong winds took down trees and put roofs to the test. Hurricane season begins June 1 with the most active part of the season typically hitting in September and October.

Now’s the time to ensure your roof if ready. If you have to get repairs after the storm, you may find prices are higher and the wait time is longer.

3. Save money on your homeowners insurance with a new roof.

As insurance deductibles rise, it’s always helpful to look for ways to save on insurance. Putting a new roof on your house could save you anywhere from 1 to 10 percent, depending on your insurance provider. Make sure you select a roofing company that will complete the required paperwork and document the new roof with photos.

This year when your tax refund check arrives, consider putting that money back into your home. Even if you can’t cover the full amount, Tri-County Roofing offers 0 percent financing for six and 12 months. So you can start the process even before the tax refund arrives. Free estimates and payment plans are also available, so there’s no reason not to make sure your roof is in the best shape possible this year.
