Will a roof restoration add value to my home?
After 10-12 years, your tile roof will show lots of signs of deterioration. You will see broken and damaged tiles and may experience leaks into your crawlspace or roof cavity causing water spots or mould and mildew growth. Your roof will also build up with lichen, moss, dirt and other debris, giving your roof a dirty looking finish. You may also notice that the glossy sheen and vivid colour of your tiles has faded or washed out.
Luckily, there is a simple solution – roof restoration. A roof restoration will not only remedy the issues outlined above; it will also add tonnes of value to your home. Here’s how:
Increased curb appeal
Perhaps the most valuable part of a roof restoration is the improved curb appeal that it will give your property. Curb appeal refers to the attractiveness of a property when viewed from the street. This is essentially the first impression a potential buyer has of your home and can go a long way in making (or breaking) the sale of a property.
Real estate agents can also use a recent roof restoration as a selling point on real estate listings to encourage potential buyers to make an offer on your home. A roof restoration not only looks great but also reassures the buyer that the roof is free of leaks and damaged or missing tiles.
Pass your building and pest with flying colours
Before your house sale goes unconditional, it is subject to both a pest and building inspection. A roof restoration will ensure that your roof is water tight and structurally sound, while reducing your risk of pests. Termites love a damp roof cavity, as it provides the thing they need to eat and thrive – damp, rotting wood. Without a roof restoration you may just be risking the sale of your home.
