A tiled roof restoration will add value to your home

If you are thinking of selling your home, a roof restoration is a cost-effective way to boost its value.

If your roof is looking a little old and weathered, having it restored can bring it back to life. This directly translates to a higher listing price when selling your home, sometimes by thousands of dollars.

  • Having a roof that looks to be in perfect condition will add to your home’s kerb appeal. The more kerb appeal that a property has, the more likely it is that people will want to pay a visit, rather than drive straight by if it looks old and dilapidated.  
  • Surveys have shown that buyers often decide within 5 minutes of seeing your home. So having it looking great from the outside will make a significant difference.
  • Buyers may see having to replace an old, worn roof as an added cost to the house price, and just walk away.  
  • If potential buyers see a neglected roof, they may wonder what else has been neglected in and worry that there will be lots of expensive repairs if they buy your home.
  • A roof restoration will waterproof your roof. This means no water marks on your ceilings from roof leaks (a sure sign to put buyers off). It will also give people looking at your home the confidence that the roof will not start to leak as soon winter arrives.
  • Buyers may also realise that a fully restored roof insulates a home, by plugging all those cracks and holes in an old roof – helping to bring down electricity costs.
