Not only does metal roofing look great, it can also help Dayton residents save money and enhance the investment in their homes. A report by Remodeling Magazine found that metal roofing adds over 60% of its cost to the value of the home. Metal roofing is the ideal choice for you and many potential buyers for many reasons.
Metal roofs last for a much longer time than most other roofing materials. Asphalt shingle roofs, one of the most common roofing options, last for 10 to 20 years before needing repairs or replacement. Metal roofs can remain in good condition indefinitely – many contractors are so confident in their durability that they give lifetime warranties on them. Both roof maintenance and replacement are expensive processes, so the prospect of buying a home that will either require maintenance sparingly or not at all is appealing to potential homeowners. It not only saves money, but also prevents the need to worry about roof maintenance.
Price of Installation Pays Off
Metal roofing can be one of the more expensive options to install, especially if you choose high-quality metal materials. However, the lack of necessary maintenance makes the investment worth it over the years. Not only does it save you money while you are in the home, but it makes the home more appealing to buyers when you decide to sell it. Shingle roofing, for example, is usually less expensive to initially install but requires replacement and repairs that add up quickly and surpass the money you would spend on a metal roof.
More Energy Efficient
Studies have also shown that metal roofs help with maintaining the temperature of your home. They can save 25% or more on heating or cooling costs because light-colored metal roofs reflect the sun.
Curb appeal is how desirable the house looks when a potential buyer sees it without having gone inside. It is important enough that in Dayton many community associations have requirements in place for how residents can alter the exterior of their home. Metal roofing has a wide range of styles. It can be a more uniform, standard look, or it can be made to look like rustic, traditional wood roofing. The wide variety of choices give you the opportunity to pick the roofing material and style that fits best with your property. The better your curb appeal, the higher the chances are of a potential buyer being interested in your home.
