New Roof Installation: Does It Actually Increase Home Value?

Investing in a new roofing system offers quite a few advantages. But is increased home value actually one of them? 

New Roof Installation: Does It Actually Increase Home Value?

Short Answer: It Depends

If you plan on selling your home in the near future, then having a new roof installed may add to its value and encourage a faster sale. As your real estate agent will likely tell you, potential buyers aren’t exactly keen on taking on a large renovation project (such as roof replacement) so soon after purchasing a home. That’s why it’s actually up to you to have that roof replaced before having your home listed. But whether or not the project will definitely add to your home’s value isn’t clear. You’ll need to consider a few essentials, including:

  • Roof Condition
    A new residential roofing system makes better sense when your existing one is already old and failing. For one thing, a new roof won’t turn away potential buyers, and those who still decided to check your home out won’t be asking for any discounts. On the other hand, if your existing roof is still in fairly good condition (and only has a few minor issues), then you can probably get away with just having it repaired.
  • Shingle Quality
    If you do decide to get a roof replacement, make sure to consider the quality of the shingles you’ve chosen. This ties into the type of neighborhood where you live. For example, if the neighborhood generally features starter homes, then it won’t make sense to pick premium-quality shingles because your home’s value won’t rise very much above your neighbor’s. But if you live somewhere more upscale, then shingles of a more expensive type may be expected.
  • Market Conditions
    General housing market conditions can affect just how much value can be added to your home via a roof replacement. You’ll need to check in with a local appraiser and a real estate agent to better understand the current market conditions you’re facing.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

Excellent experience, prompt and professional estimate, showed up on schedule (actually a day early) and did a thorough and complete job. All personnel were professional,polite and great at their jobs. Would recommend to anyone.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
