This past winter did a number on the roofs of many homes around the Minneapolis St. Paul MN area.  While roof repairs were sufficient for most homes, a few of those roofs were in need of total replacement.  Putting on a new roof can be an expensive house repair that you have to go through if your home is in this situation.  On average, a new roof is in the $10,000 range. However, if you go to sell your home with a bad roof, buyers may actually take off around $30,000 of the asking price due to the fact that they have to replace or repair the roof.  And a bad roof means your appraisal value will likely be a lot lower than you were anticipating.

07jul23c3a14The best way to go about it is to replace and repair the roof now before even putting your home on the market. This will allow you to get the asking price of your home when it comes time to sell. It can be a great investment to make.

There are many different roofing options that you're able to go with as well when the time comes. CertainTeed roofing is asphalt shingles that provide a nice overlay and are high quality, yet affordable options when it comes to roofing your home. When you put a high quality roof on your home, you're able to up the house's value and also provide a beautiful thing to look at when people drive by.

You also have the option of going with a metal roof (see our Pinterest Metal Roof Ideas board for some inspiration). This provides a strong, sturdy and inviting look to the home. Metal roofing might cost a bit more than asphalt in the beginning, but you can actually ask for more when you go to sell the home. With metal roofing you're able to get a strong way to cover the home that you have that is eco-friendly and provides benefits all year long. This is one of the leading roofing materials today, and with good reason - it could be the last roof your house ever needs.

The roof of a home is important, and having a great roofing system is even more important when it comes to putting a new one on your home. Even if you're not selling the home right away, think of the future and think of the benefits you can get when you put a new roof on your home. You're risking the integrity of the home if you do not have the proper roofing system.
