In this season, we continue to focus on the financial impact of a decision for metal roofing. We’re in the midst of more research on the subject, but want to invite you to sit back, consider, and dream about the positive impact a quality metal roof will have on the beauty and value of your home.

Beauty and Increased Home Value

The emotional side of things is that you want your home to be attractive, to be the haven of peace and beauty or charm that you enjoy. A visually pleasing home is also usually a home that sells faster and at a higher value.

For increased home value, a couple of things come into play when you invest in a quality metal roof installation:

  • Industry studies have shown that upgraded roofs add about 65% of their cost to a home’s value.
  • Because of metal’s durability, that becomes a lasting increase in home value, rather than one that declines rapidly as the roof deteriorates.

Today’s metal roofs offer you a wide range of styles and colors. In addition to traditional vertical seam roofs, there are products available that look like wood shakes, slate, shingles, and tile. One of the most exciting things to happen to metal roofing in many years has been an increase in the number of “print coats” which are colors that feature patterns and multiple hues for a weathered look or even for a look similar to that of slate or tile. You will see some of these in our product lines.

To help determine what style and color of metal roof will look best on your home, use our free online Roof Visualizer or, even easier yet, just email us a quality photo of your home looking fairly straight-on into the roof and we will “drop in” the product and color of your choice.

Durability and Reduced Maintenance for Increased Home Value

Because a metal roof maintains it’s “just new” appearance, it continually increases a home’s curb appeal and perceived value for potential buyers of the home. All of our products carry the very best warranty in the industry and can be easily transferred to future homeowners. Imagine what a great selling point that would be for your home for peace of mind and to differentiate your home from others available on the market. You can read about our warranty here.

An important statistic is a study that has shown that, when home improvements reduce a home’s operating cost, that makes the home more valuable to potential buyers. The statistic often quoted is that a home’s value increases by $20,000 for every $1,000 in reduced annual operating costs.
