The exterior of your home makes an impression. Question is, is it a good impression or bad one? Having great curb appeal is important, especially if you live in a neighborhood with other homeowners who take pleasure in keeping up appearances. Did you know that your roof can contribute to your home’s curb appeal? A nice, clean roof can not only make your home look better, but add value to it as well.
Is your roof stained or dirty?
If you notice that your roof looks dirty or has stains on it, it’s time to give it a bath. A dirty roof gives a negative impression but it’s something that is easily fixed. It’s common that your roof can get stained from algae or moss – especially on northern-facing sides – and it’s easy to notice. Stains and dirt can be removed pretty simply with a good scrubbing and moss prevention treatment. Not only will it look fresh and clean, but it will do wonders for your overall curb appeal.
Does your roof need repair?
When your roofs has missing or damaged shingles, or your gutters are sagging or broken, it can really take away from your home’s immediate appeal to buyers. Some might judge a book by it’s cover, especially potential buyers, and assume that other parts of the home are in disrepair. When your roof is in need of some TLC, it not only looks bad, but can lead to bigger problems than just aesthetics. Missing shingles can lead to leaks, rot, and more costly repairs.
Does your roof need replacement?
Aged roofs are an eyesore. If your shingled roof is older than 25 or 30 years, it’s time to replace it. This can be a costly investment, but it is absolutely necessary to maintain the quality of your home. In addition, a new roof will provide significant curb appeal and will add almost instant value to the home should you choose to sell it down the road.
