How a New Roof Adds Value to Your Home

Worthington home new roof

If your roof is starting to look a little shabby, you’ve probably been thinking about installing a new one. It’s a big investment, of course, but the increased home value that comes along with a new roof makes it a smart investment as well. According to Remodeling magazine, a roof replacement is one of the best home renovations for providing a good return on investment, adding an average of $14,000 to the value of your home. This is excellent news if you plan on selling down the road. Still skeptical? Consider these ways that a new roof is almost certain to increase your home’s value:

A Good First Impression

Considering how every part of your home is protected by the roof, it is understandably one of its most prominent features. The roof is one of the first things potential buyers will see when flipping through a real estate magazine or scrolling through online listings, and a roof that looks new and attractive is something that will make prospective buyers stop and take a second look. After the stress of moving, nobody wants to deal with expense of a roof repair or replacement, so a recently upgraded roof is a key selling point and will definitely boost the value of your home.

One Less Worry

The home inspection is probably the least pleasant aspect of selling a home. This is the point where all that is wrong with your home comes to light. Any architectural or structural issues are unearthed, all of which have to be addressed. The lucky ones only have to make a few minor repairs; the not-so-lucky ones often end up having to spend thousands of dollars before their homes can be sold. Fortunately, with a new roof, you can count on the fact that it won’t be causing you any problems, and will instead bring in more potential buyers. Re-roof your home prior to your home inspection, and roofing woes will be one less thing to worry about when you’re ready to sell.

A Fresh Warranty

With so many advances in shingle technology, in many cases the typical 15- to 20-year lifespan of traditional asphalt shingles can be extended to 30 or even 50 years for some types of shingles. With this kind of warranty in hand as proof of all the years your roof has ahead of it, the buyers won’t be able to sign those papers fast enough!
