Why You Should Always Consider A Roof Replacement Before Putting Your Home On The Market

There are many tips and tricks that you can follow to increase the sale price of your home when you put it on the market. Adding a pergola and renovating your bathroom can add significantly more value than they cost to install, but one feature that is often forgotten about in this process is your roof. A roof replacement is not only a solid investment but also can be a great selling point for your home compared to others on the market. Here are a few reasons why you should consider a roof replacement before selling your home.

Quickly Done

One great advantage of getting a roof replacement over renovating a room is that it is all done by one set of tradesmen (roofers). That means the job is much quicker, with even the most work-intensive roofs taking about a week or less. This depends on the size of your roof and the number of people in the crew, but generally, a roof replacement does not take nearly as long as you would expect. Considering most roofs last for decades before they need to be replaced again, this is great value for the money, and the efficiency at which it is installed is a bonus.

Completely Change The Look Of Your Property

You probably don't notice your roof in day-to-day life, but for prospective buyers, the roof is one of the first things they will see. An old, dirty roof might be perfectly safe and still do the job, but a brilliantly coloured new tile roof is jaw-dropping. It will make your home pop and make it seem like it is brand-new. First impressions are everything when it comes to selling your home, and a brand-new roof is a surefire way to make your home stand out from the crowd.

Practical If You Decide Not To Sell

Even if you end up reconsidering putting your home on the market, a new roof is always a solid investment. A roof is your main protection against the elements, and when it reaches a certain age, it will start to show certain warning signs before it eventually caves in completely. From leaky spots to tiles falling off at random, you should always be mindful of the status of your roof and check on it at least once a year. Roof replacement comes with certain guarantees, including often decades-long warranties that give you peace of mind knowing that whatever you do — sell or stay — the occupants of the house will be secure well into the future.
