Should You Issue A Roof Replacement Before Selling Your House?
Commercial Roof Repair
Posted on November 18, 2019 by Anderson Industrial Roofing
Selling a home requires getting your property in the best condition possible for potential buyers. One popular fix amongst Dallas sellers is a roof replacement.
A roof replacement can bring added value to your home that also takes a lot of stress out of a deal for both sellers and buyers. However, it’s understandable why a seller may be dubious about making such a financial investment.
Don’t teeter on the rooftop thinking about your decision, find out the facts about presale roof replacement and why you should always opt for a roof replacement before passing on your home to a new owner.
A New Roof Looks Great From All Angles
Remember, the exterior of your home is the first impression potential buyers get! If you have a roof that’s falling apart, your home may be on the market for a while.
An extensive roof repair or replacement can go a long way in gaining a buyer’s trust and also boosts the overall value of your home. Don’t lose a potential sale because you’ve left your buyers to handle your roofing problems. Even with an allotted allowance, this doesn’t send a confident message.
A Roof Replacement Saves Time and Money
If you know you can get a roof replacement done, save everyone involved some time and money. Leaving a roof in disrepair leads to more time wasted closing on the property and several visits from first, second, and sometimes even third opinions from inspectors and roofing contractors.
Also, if you know something is wrong with your roof, don’t let it go. An inspector isn’t going to overlook any issues with your home. Therefore, when they present a roof problem to the buyer and they want repairs done, now your family has to deal with a move on top of organizing a major rooftop project.
How to Tell if You Need a Roof Replacement
Not sure if you need a roof replacement? There are many visible giveaways that should help push your decision in the fair and just direction.
If you know your roof is 20 years old, you most likely need a replacement and will also see telltale signs of damage like:
- Cracked shingles
- Bald spots on the roof because of missing granules
- Curled shingles
- Literal holes in the roof from past storm damage
Hire a Roof Inspector
If you still need a professional opinion on whether or not to replace your roof or sell as-is, a roof inspector will give you a straight answer. Hire a professional roofer to scale your roof and point out any of the details you may have missed.
