Aside from room renovations and bathroom or kitchen remodeling, replacing your roof can increase your home’s resale price. If your roof needs more than just minor roof repair, have it replaced before selling your property to maximize its resale value.
Here are some benefits of roof replacement before selling your property.
Increases Your Asking Price
A new roof means the new homeowner won’t have to shell out money for replacement just a few years after they’ve purchased the property. They can also have peace of mind knowing that the roof can adequately protect them in any weather.
Decreases Home Insurance Premiums
Insurance premiums increase in proportion to the perceived roof risk profile. For example, a damaged roof will have higher premiums than a perfectly functioning roof. With this in mind, replacing your roof will decrease home insurance premiums — a factor you can use to entice home buyers and close a sale. Insured roofs with transferable warranties are also highly attractive to buyers who are looking to reduce roof upkeep costs after purchasing the property.
Makes the Property More Marketable
A new roof gives your home a significant makeover. You won’t need to retouch its photos to show a vibrant roof that looks brand new. That said, you can take photos of your home without spending too much time making it look better than it actually is.
Allows Quick Building Inspection Approvals
Building inspection approvals are particular with the plumbing, electric and gas lines, roofing and structural integrity. Even if your property’s foundations and walls have zero problems but you failed to replace your old roof, this could affect how your home will be evaluated by experts. Contact a roofing contractor to assess your roof and gutters so that you’ll know if a replacement is necessary to increase your home’s value and pass building inspections.
