When a seller is thinking of listing their home they have lived in for over half their life, the thing they usually do not think about is replacing that old roof . As a new home owner you may want to go with a metal roof that typically will last between 40 and 70 years, which is much longer than your standard shingle roof.
If your are thinking of selling the shingle may be the least expensive way to do it and looks equally as fabulous.
Statistics say that you will usually recover about 60 to 70% of your investment on the installation cost through the increased value of your home.
Nothing will squash a deal quicker or make a buyer walk away than on old, leaky roof. Doing this will not only increase the value of your home, but it will make your home appraise for more while you anxiously await for that appraisal to come in. It will look great and give the new home owners a piece of mind they won't have to replace it for years to come.
