Replacing your home’s roof isn’t just helpful for protecting your family from the rain and snow – it can also have many financial benefits! So what kind of financial boons can you see from getting a new roof? Read on to find out.
Increase Value of Your Home
A new roof adds aesthetic and financial value to your home. Replacing your roof can boost your home’s curb appeal, attracting buyers more quickly. A new roof can increase the value of your home by 7%, according to Remodeling Magazine! And buyers are usually willing to pay more for a house with new elements because it means they won’t have to replace anything for a while.
Return on Investment (ROI)
A new roofing system should last 50 years if made of quality materials and installed by expert installers, so there will be no added or unexpected costs down the road.
Northeast Home & Energy offers a 50-year warranty on their roofs. It’s transferable to the new homeowner if they sell before the 50 years. Meaning, that you will recoup dollars spent on this particular home improvement when you sell your home, making it a good ROI (return on investment).
Cut Home Energy Costs
You may not expect that a new roof can actually make your home more eco-friendly, but it can. New roofs made from asphalt shingles, shake shingles, metal roofing, slate roofing and tile roofing are better insulated than old ones. This means your home will see better energy performance. When you conserve more energy, your utility bills will go down. The best way to ensure that your new roofing material is energy-efficient is to check for the ENERGY STAR® roofing label. Materials with this label are certified to be eco-friendly.
