Roofing: Cost Vs. Value Retained From Roofing Improvements

You would definitely want to earn more when selling your home. A sure-fire way to make your home more desirable to prospect buyers, and of course, getting more value for your home is home renovation.

However, not all home renovations pay back well.

In fact, some are actually unnecessary. Some renovations are quite unnoticeable to buyers. What you would want to do is invest on an upgrade that an interested buyer will immediately notice. This means enhancing your home’s curb appeal.

Home exterior upgrades that enhance your home’s overall look – such as roofing replacement –is an effective way to get a greater return on your investment. The latest Cost Vs. Value Report has shown that roof replacement, with a national average job cost this year of $34,495 has a resale value of about $21,731. That’s about 63% recouped from the job cost, and is significantly higher than last year’s statistics. In Minneapolis, Minnesota, the cost recouped for roofing replacement increased to 48%, with a $16,468 resale value on a $34,360 roofing job.
