In such a tough real estate market, homeowners attempting to sell their home are looking for any and every way to make their home sell faster. Many homeowners do not take notice that roofing is a large percentage of a home’s exterior and has a heavy influence on a home’s curb appeal. Typically, home sellers underestimate the negative impression that a stain-streaked, unsightly roof leaves in the minds of a home buyer. However, homeowners can increase the beauty and value of their home simply by opting for attractive, eco-friendly, and sustainable metal roofing.
Luxury metal roofing is one of the few architectural elements that normally yields homeowners a one hundred percent return on investment when selling their home, not to mention the monthly energy savings enjoyed while the home is still owned. Less than ten percent of all homes have metal roofing, making a home with permanent metal roofing really stand out in a neighborhood of asphalt look-a-likes. Chuck Roberts of Classic Metal Roofing, an expert in the field of metal roofing, shares one such success story. “I put a metal roof on a home for a couple in Austin, Texas that had been sitting on the market for nearly three years. They were looking for something different to make their home stand out and sell. After their metal roofing was completed, the home sold within two weeks.”
Mr. Roberts goes on to point out that while a $40,000 investment in a kitchen remodel will decrease in value over the years as trends change, the same investment made in a metal roof will never decrease in value. “The majority of metal roofing systems provide lifetime warranties which are transferrable to the next owner, and that never goes out of style.” Homeowners, churches, or businesses interested in metal roofing may visit www.classicroof.com or www.southernmetalroofing.com “Classic is pleased to refer homeowners to a factory certified, branded Classic Metal Roofing Dealer nearest you,” adds Roberts.
