The exterior of any house is the first thing that a buyer sees, and the roof is a part of that 1st impression. Most buyers will not worry about a few cracked shingles, but if the entire roof is in bad shape that’s where the problem arises, you don’t want this to happen therefore you should attend it.
Getting a new roof will be expensive, but it could save you from the negative impact your current roof will have on the sale.
Homes that require heavy maintenance will not be appealing to the buyers. These buyers will look for something that is ready to move-in, so your property might not have takers.
Long sale procedure:
It might take long to sell the house, because the buyer will look to negotiate the asking price. They might also ask for the roof to be repaired or replace the entire roof before closing the deal.
Reduce the offering price:
Buyers may not agree on the asking price sighting that they will have to bear the cost of replacing the roof.
Roof repairing or replacement
There are several kinds of roof repair and replacements depending on the current roof condition and also the budget.
If the Shingles of your house are damaged by the wind or the branches of trees, it can be expensive to replace the Shingle individually. Just ensure the shingles match with your existing roof.
Type of roofing material should be used.
If you are replacing only the Shingles or a part of the roof, then it should match the material on the existing roof. But if you want to replace the entire roof then you have more options.
These come in a wide variety of colours and are durable, easy installation and inexpensive. The Asphalt Shingles are one of the most common types of roofing and they can last for about 25 years.
The metal roof is built by connecting the sections of metal roofing that are cut to fit your home. These are very expensive but can last for more than 50 years. They are mostly used in regions where there is lots of snow, as the slippery surface easily sheds the snow.
