Stop worrying about your roof every time it storms. Asphalt may be cheaper initially but it just doesn’t hold up. Who wants to replace their roof every 10-15 years? If you’re tired of having to worry about your roof than you need to consider a metal roof. It’s a smart investment that can make a difference in the value of your home, beyond the cost of the roof itself. The results of a study on metal roofing were presented in “Remodeling Magazine,” which found that homeowners who replaced an existing roof with metal recouped 86.7 percent of their cost when it came time to sell their homes. Wow, that’s a great ROI (return on investment.)

Chances are, your roof is probably the last thing on your mind. Most homeowners really would rather never think about their roof. It serves a very important service but having to replace it every 10-15 years is a huge expense and headache! Most asphalt roof systems are designed to protect your home for about 15 years.

If you are sick and tired of dealing with “roof issues” join the club. Typically when homeowners have roofing problems they are dealing with an asphalt roof. Because asphalt is a cheap roofing option you see them on the majority of homes. As you know, cheap doesn’t always equate to better. A major downside is that they typically only last 10-15 years.

There’s a reason why asphalt roofing is losing the popularity contest. It just doesn’t last that long! Many homeowners expect to get 20 to 25 years out of a new asphalt roof but asphalt content in today’s shingles have fallen to an all-time low, which means lower asphalt content equals lower quality. The quality of asphalt has gotten so bad that new shingles have began curling, cupping and shedding granules in just one year, and the asphalt shingle industry is in a panic trying to figure out how to keep fooling you. That is why metal roofs are gaining in popularity.

When it comes to our current real estate market, I enjoy reading about the trends and patterns as much as possible. It’s always good to know as much as you can on this subject. This is especially true if you find yourself getting relocated and having to buy or sell in a pinch. When it comes to deal breakers, my realtor friend Debbie tells me, foundation issues, roofing issues, and outdated bathrooms are the “big three” that she sees most. The most common she says, is a bad roof. Not a good thing to have when desperate to sell your home.
