If you are looking for ways to increase your property value, a new roof is a great choice. It enhances curb appeal, lowers energy usage, and gives you—and potential buyers—peace of mind that your home is well protected from the elements.
If you are on the fence about whether or not to replace your roof prior to putting it on the market, understand that new roofing is the number one most appealing home improvement to buyers. It ranks above new windows or siding.
Read on and be empowered with knowledge to assist you in maximizing your property’s worth.
The Value-Enhancing Aspects of a Roof Replacement
Improve Your Curb Appeal
Replacing your roof improves its beauty and functionality. First impressions endure, and your home’s curb appeal factors into the initial glimpse home buyers get of your property.
A roof that needs to be replaced can hinder a home sale because buyers add the cost of a new roof to the sale price as they calculate what it will take to get into the house. If they are looking at another property that doesn’t need a new roof, yours will be at an immediate disadvantage.
Take the risk out of your home sale by ensuring your house looks its best for buyers—with a gorgeous new roof.
Maximize Energy Efficiency
ENERGY STAR® rated shingles can help lower energy bills when installed by a reputable contractor, like Best Choice Roofing. Owens Corning shingles reflect solar energy, lowering the amount of heat transferred to a home’s interior and decreasing the amount of air conditioning needed to cool your house. This translates to saving money on monthly utilities and preserving the lifespan of your air conditioner, saving you on HVAC replacement.
Reduce Maintenance Costs
Old roofing may start to leak, lose shingles, and cause your house to be vulnerable to costly moisture intrusion—which leads to rot, mold, and possibly structural damage. These are red flags to potential home buyers. No one enjoys the hassle of repairing roof leaks or dealing with missing shingle issues due to roof damage or age-related deterioration.
A new roof ensures your dwelling is safeguarded from moisture intrusion and its harmful effects, saving you the price of repairs. Buyers will have less maintenance costs when they buy a home with a new roofing system, giving them peace of mind they are making a sound investment.
Your home is more enticing to potential home buyers with an impressive roof replacement. You can market it as a home with optimal energy efficiency, which will increase its appraisal value because of the savings it will deliver to the new owners.
Replacing your roof can cause your home to stand out among the others and be a real incentive for buyers to purchase your property. It can help shorten the time your house is on the market, saving you time and money.
Simplify Your Home Sale
When you are selling your property, it can save you hassles and cash to have your roof in tip-top shape. You’ll avoid negotiation complications and inspection issues that can pop up with an old or damaged roof, which could otherwise hinder your home sale.
If your new roof comes with a transferable warranty, it can be passed along to buyers. It’s a valuable asset to the home sale because it ensures the buyers won’t ever need to pay for roofing repairs themselves. Buyers will be willing to pay more for a house that comes with a new roof with a warranty.
At Best Choice Roofing, as a Platinum Preferred Contractor with Owens Corning, we offer you the top roofing products and warranties the industry has to offer, at a lower price than other roofing companies. With a Best Choice Roofing 5-year Labor Guarantee and an Owens Corning 50-year warranty, you can rest assured your house is protected without future costs cropping up.
Enjoy a Substantial Return on Your Investment (ROI)
A new roof is one of the foremost appealing renovations to buyers. When surveyed, buyers indicated they prefer a new roof over other home exterior upgrades such as siding or windows.
As homeowners, whether you want to put your house on the market sometime soon or years in the future, you can enjoy the roof while you live in your current dwelling, and then get a significant ROI when you sell your property, creating a win-win situation for both you and the buyer.
Maximize Your Property Value with a New Roof
A potential buyer’s first look at your property’s overall appearance matters. If your roof is failing, old, damaged, or leaking, it will hinder your house’s looks and a potential buyer’s interest in purchasing your property.
A new roof increases your home’s aesthetics and therefore directly affects its resale value. For example, gorgeous dimensional roof shingles create a stunning look, add visual interest, and complement architectural features.
A Roof Replacement Contributes to a Favorable Home Appraisal
When you have your roof replaced before putting your house on the market, save your receipts, document your new roof’s materials, note its construction date, and have all its warranties on hand. The more information an appraiser has on the roof replacement, the more favorable its appraisal.
