If you live in a development where multiple neighbors are replacing their roofs, that might be a sign that it is time for you to do the same.
A typical asphalt shingle roof lasts between twenty to twenty-five years, depending on a variety of factors such as climate or storm damage. Shingles that are curled cracked or missing granules is a clear indicator that they need replaced.
Of all the exterior surfaces on a home, the roof is arguably the most important component of the home. While no one likes to pay for a roof replacement, it is one of the most vital investments to protect the structural integrity of home.
It is unwise to ignore a failing roof, as it could end up costing more in avoidable damages in the end. A brown spot on a ceiling indicates a leak in the roof, which means that the damage has already infiltrated the home’s interior. That is bad news.
In fact, the 2017 Remodeling Impact Report co-authored by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) and the National Association of REALTORS® reveals that homeowners that install a new roof before selling their home could have a recovery value of one hundred and nine percent (109%).
That is why forty-five percent of REALTORS® suggest to their sellers that they replace their roofs before putting their homes on the market and thirty-two percent say that a new roof helped them cinch the deal!
While roof replacement typically is not seen as one of the most anticipated or exciting home improvement projects, the ROI and protection it provides to one of your biggest investments makes it the most rewarding.
While remodeling definitely increases a home’s resale value, according to the Remodeling Impact Report, there are also many less tangible benefits:
► 75% of those who remodel have a greater desire to be in their home
► 65% enjoy the look and functionality of their home more
► 56% feel “happy” and 39% feel “satisfied” when they see the finished project
► 77% feel a major sense of accomplishment when the remodel is completed
