There is joy to new beginnings when the clocks strike midnight on New Year’s Eve. Some resolutions may include more time with family and friends, a focus on living a good life or to quit smoking.
What about your home? Have you ever considered ringing in the new year with a to-do list filled with home improvement projects? Perhaps 2023 is the year for that!
There are several 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? 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 of 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 the curb appeal of your home. An updated new roof can give your home a fresh, clean look. There are so many options when it comes to style, color, and material.
Improve Energy Efficiency
Are your monthly bills becoming larger than you desire? Perhaps a new roof with additional insulation can improve your home’s energy efficiency. A variety of ENERGY-STAR roofing options are available and should be considered when deciding on a new roof.
Age of Your Roof
Each roofing system has a lifespan. Asphalt shingles have the shortest lifespan while metal is much longer. Consider how much life remains in your current system before you decide to replace it. If a replacement is in your future, consider the best bang for your buck and the plans for your home. (What are the lifespan of different types of roof?)
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 when 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 replacing the complete roof at once. Perhaps this area has become weakened through the many repairs. Secondly, if there have been issues with roof integrity, then perhaps 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.
