Home and building owners incur many expenses throughout the life of their structures as far as maintenance and repair tasks are concerned. Re-roofing is one of these tasks, but it is not always an expense since it often is an investment in the overall condition of a structure. The following are when you should consider re-roofing is an investment instead of just another expense.
Re-Roofing Maintains and May Improve Your Structure’s Value
When the roof is in needs a re-roofing, it can negatively affect the value of your structure, especially when the issues are highly visible by all who approach your home or building. As a result, returning your roof to a durable and an attractive condition will maintain and possibly improve the structure’s value at least $12,000 or more depending upon its size. You will benefit from this in different ways, including receiving approval on higher amounts in an equity line of credit on your home or building if you ever need additional funds, and you might sell your home faster and/or receive a better price on it, as we discuss further in the next section.
Helps You Sell Your House or Building
Even when the re-roofing does not increase the value of your structure, it will help you sell it for your asking price more easily. Typically, prospective buyers will not buy a structure that requires a new roof. They do not have the money to purchase the structure only to turn around and also pay for the re-roofing of it. However, they will be easily enticed into purchasing a structure that has a roof that is in optimal condition.
Ensures Proper Protection of the Rest of Your Structure
Another reason to consider an investment instead of an expense is the fact that the roof will provide the proper protection to the rest of your structure. It will not only ensure that water will not seep into your sheathing, roof supports, ceilings and walls, it will also help water drain off and away from the structure instead of pooling next to the foundation where is can cause deterioration to occur. This deterioration can cause further damage to the interior and exterior of the structure leading to massive expenditures to remedy all of the problems.
