Most homeowners are concerned primarily with having their roof protect all the valuable things under it. But the roof itself is important because it adds sizeable value to your home, especially if you are considering selling in the future.
Home inspectors usually make a beeline for the roof when they come to appraise your property, because the health of a roof is a big factor in determining a home’s value. A new or updated roof will usually offer an excellent return on investment as it vastly improves the overall “health” of a home.
If you’re selling your home and the roof obviously needs repair, it can be a big negative on the appraisal value of the property. Your home might be considered a “fixer upper” if the roof looks like it’s not up to standard. And it could also mean a reduced price offer if the buy anticipates having to do costly roof repairs later. And worst case scenario, your roof could actually kill the sale altogether.
Doing regular roof maintenance and repairs and even replacing your roof, if necessary, can ensure that your house puts its best foot forward when it comes time to sell.
