New Roof Adds Value to Highlands NC Home For Sale
A new roof adds value to a Highlands NC home for sale. The roof is one of the most intimidating repairs for any home. Not only is a new roof a big-ticket item but it is also critical to keeping a home safe. An old roof can certainly interfere with a home sale. As a result, examine the condition of a roof prior to listing a Highlands NC home for sale is an excellent idea.
What to do with an old roof
There are options when the roof of a Highlands NC home is old. Every roof has an expected life and when a roof is approaching the end of life, or passed it, then addressing it is important. A credit at closing can take place. However, replacing the roof altogether can add immediate value to a home. Additionally, a home with a new roof is appealing to buyers.
Steps to replacing the roof
The first thing to do when planning to replace a roof is to find a reputable roofing company. While price is important the true value is in the work and materials. Ask friends, neighbors, and your Highlands NC REALTOR for recommendations and plan on getting at least 3 bids. Furthermore, make sure each bid that you receive is detailed. Additionally, the materials being used matter. The least expensive bid may not always be the best. Reviews and recommendations are important.
