Few things can boost a home’s resale value like a new roof. In fact, Remodeling Magazine’s 2013 Cost vs. Value Report states that installing a new roof can boost a home’s value by nearly $12,000. Craftmasters Remodeling is your go-to roofing contractor pick for improving, repairing and installing new roofs, and we’re dedicated to helping our homeowners shine in the modern real estate market.
If you want to learn more about how a new roof can improve your home’s value, look no further. We’re here to give you the money rundown.
The All-In-One Increase
A new roof isn’t just a new roof. A lot of the value increases created by a new roof are created by reduced ice dam issues, new attic condensation and a number of other home upgrades. Potential homebuyers look at a few household features before making a purchase—and your roof packs a sizable percentage of these features.
If you’re trying to sell your house quickly within a tight market, a new roof will give you a definitive advantage over comparable properties.
Today’s roof installations also offer eco-friendly features. Material and technology innovations have given homeowners more options than ever to choose from.
For example, stone-coated steel roofs, which are lightweight and energy efficient, can be installed over your pre-existing roof structure. This saves money on installation costs while enhancing your home’s viability as a cost-saving improvement. Plus, steel-coated roofing resists high winds. Its paneled structure won’t lift up during harsh weather—protecting your attic area while serving as a new insulation level.
Boosting Your Home’s Appeal
While new home insulation, attic insulation and weather durability are nice, there’s a lot to be said for an instant aesthetic upgrade. By replacing your roof, and by saving money during the process, you’ll become your area’s leading “roof appeal” choice.
If you want to install shingles, you’ll benefit from a household which requires less long-term maintenance. Architectural shingles might cost a little more than typical asphalt roofing shingles, but they pay themselves off over time. They’re sturdy, reliable and are highly fire resistant. They’ll also deflect hail damage. Each of these factors, in old roofs, can significantly decrease a home’s value.
