Can a new roof increase your home’s value?

Although roofing is not exactly a popular remodelling project, there comes a time in every home owner's life when they need to take the replacement of the roof very seriously. Quite frankly, replacing your old roof with a brand new roof is a matter of safety. After all, it is important to replace the old roof before it becomes a threat to your and your family’s safety and security. 

But even beyond the basic safety concerns, remodelling a roof may have several benefits your for you as a homeowner. A new roof has a definite resale benefit. If you are considering selling your property or even renting it out, your newly remodelled roof can be your best Unique Selling Proposition (USP) to command a good price for your home. As a seller, you can advertise your home highlighting that the roof has just been redone and will be secure and safe for many years to come. 

A new roof also adds to the appearance of your home. Research has shown that homeowners who have remodelled their homes at least three to four times in their lifetime have only replaced the roof once or a maximum of twice. This indicates that when it comes to remodelling, the roof is often not a priority for many homeowners. It may be a great idea to include your roof in your next home remodelling project. This will help you improve the overall appeal of your home, making it more lucrative to sell.

Did you ever think that a new roof will actually help you to save money? It’s true! Homes that have an old, damaged roof often have cracks in them, which allows outside weather elements to enter the home. In Canadian winters, if your home, the roof has few cracks where cold air can enter your home, imagine how needlessly high your energy expenses will be in trying to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. If your roof is damaged or deteriorated over a period of time, you can expect water from rain to spoil your ceilings and ruin the overall look of your home. You may also significant face significant expenses for waterproofing and repairs to sub surfaces and your home interior. 

Many older homes may have asbestos in their roofing material. Over time, science has learned how harmful asbestos can be when people are exposed to it. If you have an asbestos roof, get it replaced with a safer material and add a health value to your home.
