How and Why a New Roof will Increase the Value of Your Home
When it comes to increasing the value of your home, your mind always turns to one thing in particular: remodelling. The problem, though, is that remodelling your homes interior can be extremely expensive and time consuming. Fortunately, there’s an alternative. While re-roofing your home can be just as expensive, it’s a much safer return on investment and a great way to add value to any home and increase its value. At Alf’s Roofing, we take pride in our ability to replace your roof quickly and efficiently using only the highest quality materials. Let our experts show you how you can increase the value of your home by replacing your roof.
All roofs need to be replaced eventually, with most lasting between 20 and 30 years—and thanks to our harsh Edmonton climate, sometimes less. If yours is nearing the end of its lifespan or showing signs of premature wear, consider having it replaced before you put your home on the market. For one, any leaks or other roof problems that turn up during your home’s inspection are sure to bring down the property’s market value. What’s more, a brand new roof is a great incentive for homebuyers, as it means they won’t have to worry about costly repairs or replacement for years to come.
Another factor that plays an important role in the value of your home is safety. A new roof will always be safer than one that’s been in place for numerous years. Trapped moisture, dry rot and deteriorated slate are serious issues when it comes to the safety of your home. These issues can cause serious damage to the structural integrity of your roof. The most efficient way to handle these problems—depending on the age of your roof—would be to replace the entire thing.
Don’t be fooled—on the real estate market, looks matter, even when it comes to your roof. To make your home as attractive as possible to buyers, consider having your roof replaced before putting up a for sale sign. Alf’s Roofing offers so many different styles and materials that you’re sure to find something that fits your tastes—and your budget.
These factors will all affect your ideal asking price and the time it takes to sell your home. Be sure that your roof is in good working order before it comes time to sell.
