Installing a new roof is a great investment for homeowners. Whether you plan to stay in your home for years to come or you plan to sell in the near future, a new roof will always add value to your property.
It will also provide you with peace of mind in knowing that you took steps to strengthen your roof and protect your home. There will be no more worrying about if your old roof will spring a leak, continue to be an eye sore, or make it difficult for you to sell.
3 Ways A New Roof Adds Value
Here are three key reasons why a new roof adds value to your home:
Adds Curb Appeal
While most people are focused on the idea of a new roof providing you with maximum protection, which it does, a new roof also looks great. New shingles and a well-constructed roof will add curb appeal to you home. When you drive down any street, you can tell which roofs are newly installed and which ones are dated. A new roof makes your home look newer, and enhance the overall look of your home from the street. Plus, you have a variety of shingle colours and roof material options to ensure your new roof matches your homes design.
Protects from Leaks
Perhaps the most value a new roof provides your home is protection from leaks and water. Water is the biggest threat to your home and a solid new roof will prevent water from getting inside your home and wreaking havoc on many different areas. A new vapor barrier and high quality shingles will ensure water runs off into your eaves, downspouts and away from your home.
Easier to Sell Home
Buyers want homes with new roofs. So, if you have a new roof, your house will become more appealing and easier to sell. People are interested in homes where they don’t need to do a lot of work. Rarely to people want to buy a home that needs a new roof. Remember that investing in a new roof before you sell will often pay for itself. A new roof will instantly increase the value of your home and help you mitigate some of the costs for the replacement project. A new roof could also speed up the amount of time it takes to sell your home, helping you speed up the closing.
