How Much Value Does a New Roof Add to a House?

There are some easy home upgrades, like landscape improvements, strategic outdoor lighting, resurfaced cabinets, that may add value to your home.

When it comes to more substantial upgrades that offer a good ROI, however, does a new roof fit the bill?

According to Remodeling’s Cost Vs Value Report 2020, you’ll recoup 60-68% of the cost of a roof replacement at resale. When it comes to roof repair, however, the return on investment depends on many variables.

Let’s look at what impacts how much value a new roof adds to a house.

Replace Your Home Roof

What is the condition of your existing roof? If your home’s roof shows obvious signs of disrepair:

  • Loose flashing
  • Exposed Fascia
  • Loose or displaced shingles
  • Discolorations
  • Water pooling
  • Soffit damage

…You’ll want to immediately have it inspected to ensure its integrity before you place it on the market. (If recent storm damage has occurred or you need repairs done quickly, we offer emergency roof repair for homes in Northern Delaware, Southeastern Pennsylvania, and Northeastern Maryland.)

A roof in disrepair will drive away potential buyers, so investing in a new roof or in roof repairs is a must. That might not mean you need to replace the entire roof. It may just need to be repaired. River Run Roofing pros will be happy to assess your roof and discuss your best options.

Roofing Material and Home Value

The type of roofing material you use can greatly impact your ROI on a roof installation or repair.

A new asphalt shingle roof will likely cost less than a new metal roof, for instance. The roofing consultant at River Run Roofing can help you decide which roofing material is best for your home and budget.

We are licensed and insured roofing professionals who work with a variety of roofing types, including asphalt shingles, metal, flat, and rubber.

Make Your Home More Appealing to Buyers

A new roof is likely not the first thing a home buyer is looking for, but it could be a determining factor in whether your house sells.

If your house comps closely with other homes in your neighborhood yet you offer up a newly restored roof, you’ll come out ahead of them.
