There are a few changes you can make in your home to increase its value. Some include making your home more energy efficient, updating the kitchen, fresh paint, or finishing a basement. These are all worthwhile goals, especially as we begin the new year.
Did you know that a roof replacement can increase the value as well? Some of the other options may be cheaper however, the return on investment of a new roof is about 68% of the total cost. That is a pretty good return! Plus, adding security and protection to a new roof is to go without question!
If you are looking to sell your home this coming year, or just desire an upgrade, here are the ways a new roof can increase the value of your home.
One of the first things noticed in a home is the condition of the exterior, namely the roof. Does the roof look crisp, fresh, and secure? Or does it appear to be falling apart with broken material and debris growing from the gutters? New roofs are certainly noticeable and can immediately boost your home’s curb appeal.
Adds New Technologies
Manufacturers learn new tricks and techniques to improve roofing materials as the years pass. A new roof with ENERGY STAR-rated shingles can prove to be a huge increase in energy efficiency.
Perhaps a new eco-friendly solar roof interests you. This type of system can produce up to 80% of the energy for your home’s consumption, which is a huge return on your investment!
Or maybe you desire to move from a traditional asphalt roofing system to a more advanced durable slate or tile roofing.
Trust the professionals at Guardian Roofs to help you decide which system would be most beneficial to you, your home, and your budget. We have been serving the San Marcos area since 1984 and we have seen roofing materials come a long way! Contact us today to discuss how we can best answer any questions you may have about the new and improved technologies in roofing.
Along with new technology, warranties have improved over the years. As the quality of roof materials improves, so does the warranty. With some asphalt shingles, the warranties can last up to 50 years. It is wise to discuss the length of the warranty if you are deciding on a new roof.
If you are experiencing problem areas with your roof, and tend to have the same areas repaired over and over, consider just replacing the complete roof at once. Perhaps this area has become weakened through the many repairs. Secondly, if there have been roof integrity issues, then the underlayment and insulation materials need to be replaced as well. It would be wise to get a free inspection of the areas in question and learn if a completely new system could eliminate the constant repairs.
Improve Property Value
A new roof can increase the home’s value by thousands of dollars. As noted above, the return on investment if the home is sold can be nearly 68% of the roofing costs. This can assist you with selling your home with ease.
