How Your Roof Can Increase the Value of Your Home

3 Types of Winter Roof Damage - Des Moines Area Roofing

Having a healthy roof can be a big selling point to potential buyers. While it isn’t always necessary to replace the roof entirely before listing, keeping up with repairs is a great way to show potential buyers that you’ve been taking care of your property. Oftentimes when looking for a new home, people won’t want to buy a house that needs major repairs or renovations. According to a recent NARI report, 32% of realtors recently used a new roof to finalize a sale.
When your roof reaches the end of its lifespan it is worth replacing. Until then, maintaining it and keeping up with repairs is the way to go. Here’s what to do in order to prepare your roof when selling your home.

Examine the Roof’s Current Status

How does the roof look currently? Is there visible damage such as leaks, missing shingles, or sagging? If so, you’ll need to fix these issues before putting your house on the market. Our professional roofing company at Des Moines Area Roofing can help you identify these issues, and fix your roofing problems. Depending on the amount of damage we may advise that you go
through a full roof replacement.

If your roof has no visible damage or you installed a new roof recently, you might not need to take action. Calling our honest roofing contractors at Des Moines Area Roofing to perform a free inspection is the best way to find out the current status of your roof, and what steps you should take.

Do it the Right Way

If you end up needing a full roof replacement, don’t put new shingles on top of the old ones.This can add unnecessary weight to your roof, increasing the chances of sagging and damaging the structure of the roof. It can also be more difficult to identify leaks. Our roofing professionals at Des Moines Area Roofing will help you replace your roof – the right way.
