Roof Replacement: A Rewarding Investment for Your Property

Are you planning to sell your property this year? Research shows that it might be a good time to put your house on the market.

As the country’s employment continues to improve and rates remain low, many sellers and buyers are becoming more confident to participate in the real estate industry. “Based on our projections, home prices in over half the country will have reached or surpassed levels last seen at the height of the housing bubble sometime in mid-2015,” said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic.

In a study, CoreLogic found prices for residential properties increased for the 32nd consecutive month last October. Additionally, home prices in all 50 states showed signs of year-over-year appreciation.

To get the most out of your property, think about starting home improvement projects before putting it on the market. One of the things you can do is to have your roof repaired or replaced. According to Remodeling magazine’s 2014 Cost Vs. Value Report, a midrange roof replacement in the South Atlantic region offers an ROI of about 71%. Many buyers won’t mind spending more on a property with a new roof but they will definitely be turned off by an old, dilapidated roof.

Not sure if it’s time for roof maintenance works? Here are some signs you may need roof replacement or roof repair in Sarasota FL.

Age

An average roof lasts for 20 to 25 years. Depending on how well you’ve provided maintenance, your roof’s service life may be shorter or longer than that of a typical roof. Additionally, if your current roof was installed over an old one, and you’ve had it for a while, there’s a chance that it may be time to replace it.

Loose Granules

If your gutters are full of loose granules, it means your shingles have reached the end of their lifespan; it also means it’s time to replace them. If you don’t, your roof may not perform as efficiently as it should

Leaks

Leaks after an ice buildup or wind-driven rain often signal problems on your roof’s underlayment or flashing. When you suspect leaks, have a team of experts on roof repair in Sarasota and nearby areas to work on your house as soon as you can. The longer you leave the problems unsolved, the more issues you may have to deal with later.

Not selling your property anytime soon but these signs are present on your roof? Then it’s still a good idea to have a contractor inspect it and do some maintenance work. Protect your investment!
