Are you planning to sell your home? Before you put it on the market, you might want to consider doing certain renovations to make it more presentable to potential buyers. Some of these improvements won’t just enhance your home’s exterior appearance and curb appeal, but also increase its resale value – for example, a full roof replacement.
The Current State of Your Roof
There are many reasons why a new roof makes sense when you’re selling your home. Before you consider getting a full roof replacement, check your roof’s current condition. Future buyers like a roof that’s well maintained and cared for, and can often get iffy at the sight of a roof leaking through your walls and ceiling. This can also make them more reluctant to buy your home as not every future homebuyer will have the additional funds necessary to undertake a roof replacement after purchasing your home.
Even if your roof looks like it’s in good condition, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have any underlying roofing problems. If you get it appraised before getting a proper roof replacement, you’ll easily know if your roof is in poor condition. If this is the case, you might as well invest in a full replacement by an experienced residential and commercial roofing contractor!
How a New Roof Increases Resale Value
A full roof replacement that’s projected to last for many years can be an attractive feature to future homebuyers. It will require higher upfront costs, but a new roof will not only enhance your home’s visual appeal, but also increase its resale value! However, a full roof replacement can only be beneficial if it’s already more than five years old. If it’s still relatively new and is regularly maintained, then it should be projected to last for many years, which is already appealing to potential buyers. And if your roof only sustained minor damage, it’s more cost-effective to just pay for the necessary repairs.
