A brand-new roof gives you the opportunity to cut energy costs while enhancing curb appeal. Research done by Remodeling Magazine also reveals that installing a new roof can have a great impact on the overall value of your home.
Does a New Roof Increase Home Value?
A new roof increases home resale value by a national average of nearly $12,000, according to Remodeling Magazine’s 2013 Cost vs. Value Report. This survey also revealed that homeowners who install new roofing can expect to recoup an average of 62.9% of the original installation cost through improved home value.
Reasons to Install a New Roof
New architectural-grade asphalt shingles provide texture and dimension that can enhance the look and feel of your home. With the wide range of color and design selections available on the market today, you can duplicate the appearance of a real wood or rustic slate roof without the hefty price tag.
Standard warranties for asphalt shingles used to be 15 to 20 years. But with recent innovations in technology, premium-quality shingles now come with manufacturer warranties as long as 50 years.
