How Your Roof Can Improve or Hurt Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Investing in a high-quality roofing system helps improve both your home’s attractiveness and weather protection. On the flip side, failing to address a worn down, aging roofing system can lead to an eyesore that drags down your home’s curb appeal.

Here are ways your roof is either helping or harming your curb appeal. 

Ways Your Roof Can Hurt Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Age and exposure to weather extremes will cause roofing shingles to fall apart. Regular roof inspections are important, especially if your roof is more than a decade old. Early detection and prompt repair of missing or torn shingles will prevent the issue from worsening.

Flashing is the metal attached to the fixtures around your roof to prevent leaks. Over time, the flashing may begin to rust, which will harm your home’s curb appeal. 

Gutters and downspouts are essential to directing water away from your roof and exterior. Once your gutters leak, water will begin pooling up near the foundation, putting you at risk of flooding and other damage. 

How Your Roof Can Increase Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Choosing a high-quality roofing material that complements your home’s architecture will significantly enhance your property value. A good design for your roof will give your home distinct personality.

Your roof’s color should complement the hues of your home’s exterior. Today, you have access to a wide range of roof colors to suit any home. Choosing the right color will accentuate the architectural style of your house and give your property a cohesive feel. Consider appeal, durability, longevity and maintenance requirements when selecting a material.
