How Does Your Roof Affect Home Value?

August 28, 2020

While the roof is usually the last thing homeowners want to think about when making home improvements, it is usually the first thing potential home buyers are thinking about. That’s no surprise as the roof is a huge component of every house! Some states and municipalities will require homeowners to disclose information on roof leaks or damage. Others will require a house inspection to be performed prior to closing. So it is pretty safe to say that your roof is likely going to affect your home value. The question is, will it affect your home value positively or negatively?

Every buyer wants a home with a working roof. If your roof requires just a few repairs, it is worth getting those fixed to maximize the value your roof brings to your home.  Even just clearing away debris off your roof will improve curb appeal and reduce its chances of becoming a negotiating element in the sale.

The Value of a New Roof

According to Remodeling’s 2020 Cost vs Value Report, homeowners can expect to recoup almost 66% of the cost of a roof replacement when selling their home, averaging a $16,287 increase in resale value. 

Replacing a roof may not help increase home value in every market, but almost every home buyer will prefer having a working roof. If your roof is in fairly good condition, doesn’t have leaks, has never needed major repair, and still has a few years left before needing a replacement, then your realtor will likely discourage you from getting any major roof work done. But if your roof is having major problems and is affecting the resale value of your home, then you will probably want to look at your options to get your roof in good shape.
