How Much Should You Invest in Your West Chester Roof - Image 1

This is not the easiest question to answer. No matter where you look, the return on investment (ROI) for the replacement of a roof is definitely not 100%. Anywhere from 53% to 62% has been listed as reality for the ROI. It is often a good idea when faced with such an important decision to contact a professional. Certitude Home Improvement, your local West Chester roofing contractor, knows roofs and roofing and how to judge the need for repair versus a full replacement.

There are several questions you need to ask yourself, once you know the condition of your roof:

  • Do you own your home outright or do you have a mortgage? Either way, the cost of a total roof replacement will affect how much profit you make from the sale of your home. Having repairs done may be your best option financially.
  • What exactly are your chances of getting multiple offers for your house? Home sales are improving, but is your house in one of the competitive areas? Competition helps as do any repairs or upgrades.
  • If there is damage to your roof, is it due to storm damage? If so, your insurance may cover some of the costs.
  • Would the condition of the roof prevent the buyer from getting a mortgage? They may want to purchase your home, but if the roof fails inspection, they will not get the funds needed to complete the purchase.
