How to Enhance Your Home’s Curb Appeal with Your Roof
A roof is much more than a structural component of your property. You may not think of your roof when you think of how your home looks, but your roof can actually have a big impact on your home’s overall appearance. Re-roofing your home can transform the way it looks and have a huge impact on potential buyers if you are thinking of selling.
Talk to a roofing contractor serving Sun City about whether it’s time for a new roof and what options would look best on your home. Here are a few ways that your roofing choices can enhance your home’s curb appeal:
Create a Flattering Style
Think of your house like a plain box. The roof is the decorative cover, and details like shutters, stone façade, and columns are all embellishments. What you choose for that cover can change the entire look of your home. Imagine your stucco siding topped with a plain shingle. Now, imagine it topped with a rustic tile. The change can be extraordinary.
Your Mesa roofing contractor may be able to show you what your house would look like with different roofing options through design software. Or you can look at gallery images of other houses like yours with different roofing choices.
Do Different Things with Color
Black and grey are some typical colors for a roof. But have you ever wondered how your home would look with a green roof? Or a red roof? You can create a dramatic effect with a color other than the usual for your roof. (We wouldn’t recommend going hot pink, but don’t be afraid to push the envelope some.)
Not all roofing materials are available in all colors, but you may be surprised at your options. Talk through what’s available with your Gilbert roofer and what might look best on your home.
Elevate the Profile
Shingle roofing is common because it is so easy to install and affordable. It fits with just about type of home, and it is relatively easy to maintain and to repair. But it is also ubiquitous, and that has made it seem a bit generic. You can elevate the profile of your home by upgrading to something like tile or even metal. Even among the different types of tile, there are an array of choices, some of which will make your home look more sophisticated or luxurious.
Update the Look
Building materials can become worn and dated over time, making your home look older. By re-roofing, you automatically will make your home look newer and in better condition, no matter what type of roofing or color you choose.
If you have a really old roof, updating it can also update the style so that it looks more contemporary. Not only will the home seem better taken care of, but it will seem to be more modern.
Highlight Cost Savings
You may want to update your roof just to better enjoy your home. But if you are thinking of selling your home soon, updating your roof has additional benefits. Not only will it improve your home’s curb appeal so that it is more attractive to potential buyers, but it will also advertise cost savings to those potential buyers.
A new roof tells buyers that they aren’t going to have to invest in re-roofing for a very long time. It also tells them that they won’t have to make any repairs any time soon, so they’ll save a lot of money.
Re-roofing can elevate your home’s curb appeal, either because you want to enjoy your home more or because you want to sell it. Consult with a local roofing company about the best options for your home. You’ll get a beautiful new look for your house and will get a great return on your investment.
