Whether buying or selling a home, you might be in for a change this summer. That means that there’s no time like the present to get your roof fixed up. After all, it can help boost the curb appeal of your home.
The shape and size of your roof make more of a difference than you realize. You’ll also need to make sure that the pitch doesn’t ruin the effect you are going for when you redesign your roof. It also doesn’t matter what material you use for your roof, because if you design it the right way it will be even more attractive. It can be the first thing that draws the eyes of your visitor. Cross gables and rooflines are two of the options you have.
The color of your home can also boost curb appeal. Think about the existing roof for a minute. Then the siding, walls, windows, and foundations will all factor into it as well. Go beyond grey and black and brown. Your roof doesn’t need to be boring. However, you will still need to follow community guidelines and be sure to get all the paperwork in order before you starting change your roof. You don’t want to upset anyone else or a bad neighbor.
Don’t overlook the value that the materials you used for your roof have. Even new roofs will wear out, torn apart by high winds, strong storms, and damage from the trees in your neighborhood. Maybe metal roofing is the way you want to go when it’s time for a change.
The last factor to keep in mind is how everything will affect your home’s value. Providing home buyers with the best curb appeal will increase your chances of closing a successful sale. This impression is formed in the first ten seconds, and after that, it can be immensely difficult to change someone’s mind. They could end up choosing a different house in your development.
