Joyous cheers and chants of good wishes are the typical greetings at midnight on New Year’s Eve. The shared dreams are the hope of a new beginning, a renewed focus, and dedication to change. Typically the focus is on bettering ourselves and sharing life with our loved ones. There is nothing wrong with those goals!
As we plan out our year, what hits the list of home improvement ideas? Is a new bathroom remodel on that list? What about upgrading a kitchen appliance? We strive to work on home improvement ideas that will better our lives and make everyday living more enjoyable.
Did you realize that a new roof is an excellent place to start with home improvement? How do you know if it’s time for a new roof? Here are some things to look out for:
- Do you have damaged, broken, or missing shingles?
- Do you have insufficient insulation?
- Are there gaps near your roof vents?
- Do you notice discoloration on your interior ceilings and walls from water seepage?
- When do you know to have a replacements?
If you are not able to inspect these areas, perhaps it is time to contact a local roofing company and ask for assistance in determining if it is time to replace your roof. Call MHI Roofing in Pittsburgh to schedule a free inspection and learn more about your options for a solid strong roof.
What are the benefits of installing a new roofing system in 2023?
Increased Energy Efficiency
A new roofing system can seal up any damaged areas all at once. No more patching or repairs are required! A fully sealed roofing system can eliminate the warm air from escaping in the wintertime or the cool air in the summer. This will allow the heating and cooling system to work at peak, and not overtime. This will then filter down to monthly energy savings!
Each roofing system does have a lifespan. As an example, asphalt shingles have an average lifespan of 25 years with regular maintenance and upkeep. Synthetic slate roofing is an excellent option for something out of the ordinary, yet offering durability and eco-friendly benefits. Slate roofing can last close to 50 years when properly installed.

Is your roof nearing the end of its life? Perhaps it is time to consider a new roof before damage occurs and you are forced to quickly install new roofing.
New technologies in roofing have allowed manufacturers exceptional warranties on their products. MHI Roofing offers the following warranties:
- Basic roof warranty of 2 years
- Repair warranty of 5 years
- Lifetime Roof + warranty
It is advised to discuss the warranty information with MHI Roofing as you decide on your next roof. Investing in a new roof can be stressful, but we help you through the process and make sure you understand all protections available to you.
Safer and Healthier
As moisture seeps its way through the older roofing material, damage under the surface can exist. Many times we just don’t know what damage has been done. Mold and mildew can slowly form from wet insulation and underlayment. It is best to make sure your roof is strong and secure to eliminate any unhealthy concerns.
