One of the most important factors when undertaking a home improvement project is whether (and by how much) it will enhance the property's resale value. If you're in the market for a custom roof replacement, a cedar shingle or cedar shake roof merits careful consideration. Custom Shingles can design and install a beautiful cedar roof that will make your home the crown jewel of the neighborhood. With our more than 40 years of wood roofing expertise, you can count on us for a high-quality cedar roof that will add significant value when the time comes to put your house on the market.
Why Choose Cedar Wood as Your Roofing Material?
From a home buyer's perspective, cedar roofs have much to offer besides their unmistakable beauty. Cedar is known for its remarkable durability. Depending on factors such as upkeep and climate conditions, a cedar roof can last 30 to 40 years, which is 10 years longer than one consisting of asphalt or other common roofing materials.
Cedar also offers excellent resistance to heavy rain, snow and other potentially damaging climatic events. As cedar ages, it morphs into a distinctive grayish-silver color that adds an elegant touch to the home. What's more, cedar is extremely energy-efficient, which is a plus for any prospective homeowner concerned about keeping heating and cooling costs under control.
So, What Is a Cedar Roof Home's Resale Value?
While it's true that the quality and craftsmanship that comes with a cedar roof installation often results in a higher price point than when choosing other roofing materials, you can expect to reap the rewards when you sell your home. According toRemodeling Magazine's 2018 "Cost vs. Value" report, the average increase in a home's resale value in the U.S. after a new roof installation is $14,320.
However, the real value of a cedar roof is more difficult to quantify. A cedar roof always makes a home stand out from others on a block or in a neighborhood. Buyers will are drawn to homes with cedar shingle or cedar shake roofs like iron filings to a magnet, which can increase the likelihood of a faster sale at a higher price.
