Does a New Roof Improve Your Home’s Value?

A common question that we often get is roofing contractors is whether or not it’s wise to replace your roof before you consider selling your home. A new roofing roofing project could drastically improve the overall curb appeal of a property and it often leads to a boost in value before you sell your home. If you’re considering renovations for your home before selling it, adding a new roof could be a wise idea, especially if your previous roofing system has fallen into disrepair.

The Hassle of a Roofing Project

Many prospective homebuyers may pass on your home if they have to deal with the hassle of reroofing it. It’s also likely that the last thing that a new homeowner would want to do is seek a major renovation project as soon as they move in. If you have to replace your roof within the next few years, it may be wise for you to consider re roofing your home before you list your home for sale.

Giving You an Advantage

Having a new roof on your home versus another home that’s located in the same neighbourhood will give you an advantage in the market. A new roof won’t necessarily give you tens of thousands of dollars in value for the market but it’s a great way to make sure that you can face favourable market conditions and a competitive advantage with other similar homes at your budget level.

Preparing for Roofing Inspection

Many prospective homebuyers will also get a professional roofing inspection done today before they make a purchase on a home. Preparing your home for that inspection is a wise choice so that you can help a prospective buyer put their mind at ease or even forgo the cost of a roof inspection because your roof is brand new.
