How Roofing Tiles Can Add Value to Your Home

There are many ways that you can add value to your home, from a new coat of paint to tidying up the garden or a kitchen makeover. If you’re planning to sell you’ve probably got a whole checklist to work to do. After all, you want to get the best price possible.

One way to add some value to your home is to consider roof replacement. Installing some new roofing tiles can be a great way to boost your home’s resale value. Let’s take a further look!

Ways Roofing Tiles Can Add Value to Your Home:

  1. Extended Warranty

Some roofing tiles come with extended warranties, making them a great investment from the very beginning. With a long warranty, their value will last long after you’ve sold, and the new owners will be thankful too.

  1. Perfect for Tank Water

Water that runs off roofing tiles is safe for use as tank water. This is especially valuable in draught-stricken areas. The run-off can be used for drinking water, to water the garden, or for other household uses. Having a water tank adds value to the home, so making sure the water is safe to use is essential.

  1. They Look Amazing

Roofing tiles come available in a wide range of profiles and colours. Chances are they’ll be able to match the vibe of your property. Brand-new tiles will look amazing! Aesthetics add value to homes as much as practical renovations, because no one wants to live in a shabby old place.

  1. Sound Insulation

Roof tiles have significant noise-reduction capabilities. They’re actually the most effective sound insulator of any roofing material. This means that the living spaces remain quiet, despite outside noise. Now that’s a good selling point – everyone loves peace and quiet.

  1. Durable and Rust-Proof

Roofing tiles do not corrode or rust, unlike corrugated iron or tin. This makes them ideal for coastal climates. It also means that they will stand the test of time. They’re also a very sturdy material. Using long-lasting and strongly constructed materials is a great way to add value to your property.

  1. Fire Resistant

Roofing tiles are fire resistant, making them ideal for use in bushfire-prone areas.

  1. Lower Energy Bills

Roofing tiles are a great way to insulate a property. They actually reflect radiant heat from the sun away from your home. This means you’ll be spending less on heating in winter and cooling in summer, which will shave dollars off your power bill. You’ll be passing this saving on to the next owners too, and making some more money from your property as well.

  1. Affordable

Roofing tiles aren’t going to break the bank. They’re a sound investment and you get all the above benefits for a good price.
