Looking for Some Curb Appeal? Look to Your Roof

Roofing is typically something we think of as a “necessary” project, perhaps because of damage, the age of your roof, or because the colors are outdated. A new roof will add curb appeal and top off the overall visual effect of your home.

Curb appeal is all about perception: by creating a positive perception of your home with a beautiful roof, its value will increase. There are some important statistics you should know as you determine if a new roof is for you:

  • Better Homes and Gardens says that the roof accounts for 40 percent of a home’s curb appeal
  • The number one home improvement item Realtors suggest is a new roof
  • The average ROI of a new roof is 67%
  • If you’ve been through a big storm with hail, it would be a good idea to have it checked – it’s hard to tell if your roof has been damaged unless you know what to look for, and you definitely don’t want to wait until it starts leaking!

There are many different materials you could look at choosing with a new roof – asphalt, steel, or standing seam being among them. Steel shingles now come in a variety of profiles, from wood shakes, clay tiles or the asphalt shingle look. There is also vinyl TPO for small flat roof areas.
