Any type of improvement to a home can maximize the value of a home. It is confusing to a homeowner how to invest in their home for maximum return or to interest buyers. Curb appeal is a big selling feature to a potential buyer.
When a roof is old and worn, a potential buyer will not usually be interested in taking on a large project. Siding that is faded, cracked or missing is another turn off to a potential buyer. Windows that are foggy, broken, or allow drafts into the home are another turnoff to a buyer.
What Type Of Roofing Should Be Installed?
The type of roofing that will look the best for the home will be determined by the architecture of the home and the budget of a homeowner. Asphalt shingles are a popular brand of roofing because of the cost. Although asphalt shingles are less expensive in the beginning, they will not last as long as metal roofing will.
Asphalt shingles last approximately 20 to 25 years. Metal roofing will last upwards of 50 years before needing to be replaced.
Metal roofing interlocks and is manufactured to look like traditional roofing systems. The strength of the steel comes in a wide array of colors and incorporate natural shading. The panels can be fabricated to look like dimensional asphalt shingles, wood shakes, and barrel tile.
With the weather delivering extreme storms in the area, metal roofing will protect a home. Metal roofing is resistant to rust, fire, hail, and winds up to 120 mph.
A homeowner might overlook the windows in their home unless one is damaged. Older windows in a home are a large reason for increased energy costs. Windows are manufactured in a variety of styles including a slider, double hung, casement, bay, bow, and many others.
An energy efficient window will reduce energy bills, increase the value of a home, and provide a comfortable atmosphere.
