If you are thinking about completing exterior renovations to try to add value to your home, adding a new roof is often a good investment, especially if your current roof is nearing the end of its expected lifespan or is in need of repairs. A brand-new roof can greatly improve the appearance of your home, making it more attractive to prospective buyers and increasing the curb appeal of the home.
As part of your exterior renovations, a new roof can have other benefits for your home:
- Depending on what roofing material you choose, it can cut your cooling costs and increase your home’s energy efficiency.
- It can keep you from having any building inspection issues when the inspector comes to look at your home.
- It can actually raise the value of your home by thousands of dollars.
If you are planning a new roof as part of your exterior renovations, one of the most important things you can do is to find a trusted roofing contractor to complete the job. A new roof costs too much money to hire just anyone to do it. It is a good idea to get multiple recommendations of contractors and ask the contractors to give you a written estimate including materials, labour and other costs associated with the roof installation.
New roofing materials tend to come with longer warranties than ever before and provide superior energy efficiency when compared to older products. Your home might look so good after you complete exterior renovations and a new roof that you just decide to stay there.
