Replacing your roof may be more beneficial than you realize. While it’s imperative that you stop a leaking roof to avoid interior damage, it can also do some great things for the exterior of your home and the value of your home. Check out these top 3 reasons we believe it’s beneficial to replace your old roof.
Increase Property Value
As a homeowner, you probably treat your home as an investment. After all, it’s one of, if not the largest purchase(s) you will ever make. Part of taking care of your investment is regular maintenance and up-keep. This includes mowing your lawn, adding nice landscaping, taking care of your driveway, cleaning out the gutters, and so much more. One of the main parts of your home that affects its value is its roof. In fact, according to industry standards over the last three years, a new roof can increase a home’s value by up to $12,ooo, on average. That’s a lot of money! In the event that you are planning on selling your home in the future, this is a great thing to keep in mind when considering upgrades and evaluating your home’s value.
While your landscaping is important, it can only do so much for your curbside appeal if your home isn’t maintained and taken care of. One of the most overlooked parts of a home is the roof when it comes to appearance. However, it is one of the essential things that creates the first impression of your home as a whole. For example, older worn out or missing shingles make your freshly pressure washed brick or vinyl siding seem dull. However, a new roof can not only complete the desired curbside appeal you’re going for, but it can add character and personality to a home. The new color options are incredible and far surpass the options that older roofing companies offered. Also, shingles last a lot longer today than they used to as technology and engineering have improved. So, if you’re looking to spruce up your curbside appeal, stop overlooking your roof. It’s pretty important in the overall image of your home.
Master Home Inspections
If you are planning on selling your home in the near future, it’s important that your home passes a home inspection. Home inspectors evaluate everything from your foundation to your shingles and everything in between. It is their job to carefully inspect each part of your home to give a report to the potential buyer(s) as to make an educated, professional decision on purchasing your home. A new roof will help relieve some worry when it comes to your inspection as a homeowner. In fact, many homes get a poor score on their home inspections because of their roof and the damage that it has caused due to leaks, etc. A new roof will put your mind to ease about that part of your home’s inspection during the closing process.
