We’re in the thick of a home seller’s market this year. If you’re considering selling your home, make sure your roof is in tip-top condition to make sure you’re raising that home value and boosting your curb appeal. Here’s a look into how you can prepare your roof for selling your home.
Get a Free Inspection
The first thing you should do when you want to sell your home: get an inspection.
If you get a free inspection with Allphase, our expert team will take an in-depth look at your roof and home exterior to see if there are any dings, dents, hail damage, and lifted or damaged shingles. After this inspection, we’ll provide an estimate so that you know exactly how much the roof replacement is going to cost you.
Get that Roof Replaced
After your free roof inspection, we will provide you with the information needed if you need to get your roof replaced!
If your roof is over 20 years old, you may have to replace the roof before moving forward with the sale of your home. Old roofs are a liability to new homeowners as years worth of missing shingles, hail damage, and normal wear-and-tear allow for debris and water leaks to get inside the home, lowering your home’s value.
Yes, roof replacements cost both time and money, but in the long run, you’re going to be able to sell your home at a higher price.
Choose a Lighter Shingle Color
When it’s time to get your roof replaced, make sure you’re choosing the right shingle color.
Homebuyers are driving by, looking for a home that looks good and anything to help them save money on their energy bills.
When temperatures hit over 90°F in the summer, dark shingles absorb that heat and make your home more uncomfortable inside. Lighter shingle colors can be up to 50 to 60 degrees cooler than a darker roof. This allows for the home to cool off more efficiently, which is an appeal to home buyers wishing to save money.
Boosting your home’s curb appeal is also important, so make sure you’re choosing a shingle color that looks good on your home and attracts those home buyers!
