When the time comes to sell your home, you may begin thinking about home improvements which may increase the resale value. One improvement many consider is the installation of a new roof. In fact, Remodeling Magazine found that installing a new roof may increase the value of your home by as much as $12,000. This is more than one can expect when installing a backup power generator or adding a bathroom addition. Here are five reasons Roofers Seattle recommend you consider a new roof.
1. A new roof improves the appearance of your home. You’ll find that roofing materials have come a long way in the past ten to 20 years, and you have access to a wider range of color choices and textures. You’ll be able to have a roof you may never have dreamed possible when you purchased your home.
2. The resale value of the home does increase when you choose to have a new roof installed. In addition, the sheer size of the roof makes it very visible not only to potential buyers, but also to home building appraisers and home inspectors. Any problems found with the roof are likely to delay the sale, if they don’t halt the sale completely. Click here for more details.
3. Certain types of asphalt roofing shingles now feature an Energy Star rating as they are able to reflect solar heat, which will help you to save on home cooling bills over the long run.
4. New roofs now come with longer warranties. A short time ago, a roof warranty was typically good for anywhere from 15 to 20 years. Now you can get roofing shingles with a 30 year warranty, and some even boast a 50 year warranty.
Consider the above when determining if you should speak to Roofers Seattle about having a new roof installed on your home.
