The condition of a roof plays in to the value of any property. Having a functional roof is important to the structural integrity and to the proper maintenance of a home or building. If you are considering selling your home it is wise to check the condition of your roof. In many cases your roof is probably fine, but you might notice small things that can be fixed. If you have a potential buyer, they will likely hire an inspector. The inspector will definitely be paying attention to the roof.
So does replacing the roof on your home mean you can ask more for it? Well, from the real estate website zillow.com, it looks like you can’t really say that replacing a roof adds value to a home. This is because it is already expected that a home will have a functional roof. It means that it would not make sense to replace a functional roof, however if the roof is leaking or has other problems, those things could take away from the value of the home.
Realistically, maintaining a roof is important, whether the house is on the market or not. Most roofing contractors and roofing installers will evaluate the condition of your roof and provide a complimentary quote for any roof repairs or, when necessary, for a replacement roof.
