Some individuals don’t think it’s necessary to replace a roof if it’s not their forever home. However, when you go to sell your house, the condition of your roof can be an important factor. If the roof’s shingles are curled and there’s moss living on the roof, it can be extremely difficult to sell your home. Installing a new roof may be your best option to boost your curb appeal and sell your home.
It’s also important to remember that the sun will lighten shingles over time. When you’re choosing between replacing or repairing a roof because of missing shingles, keep in mind that it’s hard to match a shingle that needs to be replaced. It’s nearly impossible to match the colors, so if it’s more than a few shingles, you should consider a full replacement, especially if you are planning on selling your home.
If you ARE in your forever home, it’s crucial to have annual inspections and maintenance to ensure you get the full life out of your roof.
While this guide maps out the key points to consider when repairing or replacing your roof, it is extremely important to hire a reputable roofing company to give a proper inspection.
