When is it time to replace the roof on Highlands NC homes? A roof comes with a lifespan, or at least an estimated lifespan. Often when a home changes hands in a real estate transaction the roof is an issue. Furthermore, a new roof adds value to a home. Is it worth it to replace the roof prior to listing a Highlands NC home for sale?

Roof inspections helpful

Hiring a roofing contractor periodically to inspect your roof is a great idea. Cedar shake roofs, for example, often need a shingle replaced here and there. Consistent maintenance can extend the life of a roof. Additionally, knowing the exact condition of a roof is helpful. After all, the roof is one of the most important features of any Highlands NC home.

Choosing the right roof

There are so many new roofing materials available. Wood roofs are getting more expensive to insure which is pushing many homeowners to replace their roofs. New options, like metal roofing shingles and tiles, are offering 50 year plus lifespans. This certainly adds great appeal for would-be buyers.

Timing differs

Replacing a roof may simply be a move that a homeowner makes in order to add solar panels. Or, roof replacement may take place to add value to a home. The one circumstance you do not want to be in is having to replace a roof because of failure. Roof replacement is expensive and preparing for it is far better than being caught off guard.
