Putting a new roof on your home is an investment. I suggest to get educated on what type of roof you want to purchase that will compliment your home. Commonly there are Asphalt, 3D, tile, slate, single ply, composite and metal roofing. Many communities have an homeowners association and must be approved prior replacing. Depending on the square footage, style and hips on your roof determines your price. National average runs about 8,000. Many roofers have some roof material with a 15, 20 and 30 warranty. I suggest never have roof pressure washed. Doing this to an asphalt roof will do more damage than harm. This blows off the granules that protect the shingles that will show as the years advance. If you ever do this you must have a professional that know what he is doing. There is a such thing as a soft wash system that uses proper cleaning solutions. This can increase the life of the roof, property value and reduce energy cost. A neglected roof can lead to a huge expense. water will always find it way to go anywhere. My phrase is pay now or pay more later. Tile, Slate and metal roofing are much different in this scenario and will be okay. Many homes that have trees over hang at homes a likely to get black streaks. I highly recommend cut all branches the hang over your home. This is also a protective measure form storms that may break a branch and damage your home.
Your insurance is lowered and peace of mind from water leaks. Your home is your asset just like your vehicle. Also if any damage ensure you are insured and keep in mind your deductible you must pay. Take care of your asset.
