Home improvement projects can positively impact the ROI of your home.

Many homeowners will wonder, is a new roof a good investment? In order to get a good answer, we must evaluate the roof replacement ROI or return on investment. The 2022 Remodeling Impact Report helps show cost vs value report of home repair projects. This indicator is used to help homeowners make smart investment decisions in their homes and make sure they will get their money back if they sell. 

Does a Roof Replacement Add Value to My Home? 

The short answer is yes, a complete asphalt shingle roof replacement will add value to your home. If your roof is visibly run down with moss growth or missing and punctured shingles, then your roof is depreciating the value of your home. 

According to the 2022 Remodeling Impact Report by The National Association of Realtors Research Group, the highest percentage of cost recovered on any exterior remodeling project was the roof. This means that the value of your home is primarily determined by the integrity and age of your existing roof. 

How Much Does a New Roof Increase Home Value? 

According to the 2022 Remodeling Impact Report, a complete roof replacement costs approximately $12,000 and the cost recovered on the investment is 100%. This is great news for homeowners because their roof investment is directly increasing their property value. 

Not only does installing a new roof provide a financing advantage, but it also causes a psychological benefit with a joy score of 9.2 out of 10. According to the 2022 Remodeling Impact Report, 87% of homeowners have a greater desire to be home since completing the roofing. 

Should I Replace The Roof Before Selling? 

Replacing your roofing is not a one-size-fits-all solution to selling your home. As stated before, the ROI on roof replacements is 100% meaning you will get your money back when selling the home, but you may not profit. If you would like to replace your roof before selling, make sure the roofing labor and materials have a transferrable roof warranty for the next homeowners. Transferring peace of mind by using a highly rated roofing contractor may make selling your house easier.  

It's absolutely possible that potential homebuyers may bid higher on your home knowing that they will not have to replace the roof for decades. Every individual homeowner has to consider the personal benefits of a roof installation and whether the construction process is worth the time, energy, and investment prior to selling.
