In my last post, I talked about the revamping of my outdoor area with liquid limestone. Well, I also wanted to share the makeover my old roof. Basically I had a roof repair job done and partially restored. It made a dramatic change to the aesthetic of my house. In fact, I got it evaluated and the value of my house went up a notch! So for those out there thinking of getting your roof done, don’t think twice about it! It is absolutely worth it. The proof is in the pudding.
The roof is one part of the house, in my opinion, often neglected. I think this is the case because it is normally in accessible. How many of you actually been up the roof? I’m not surprised if the majority of you out there haven’t walked on the roof area. I don’t blame you because you tend to need a ladder to get up there. Many of us are not trades people so we don’t tend to have a ladder lying around. For those of us who own a ladder probably lack the height required for some roof.
To tell you the truth, I noticed some of the tiles were broken – which was evident even from a far distance. Upon closer inspection, many more needed the same sort of attention. After talking to some friends who recently got theirs done. I decided to do the same. Although the actual cost of getting the roof repaired and partially restored is relatively high compared to other renovations around the house, it was certainly worth it in my eyes. The increase in property value was a big surprise. I mean, I did know it will increase in but not by the amount that it actually did.
My old roofing was aged quite a bit, approximately 25 years. So this recent repair should make it last for another 20-30 years. Overall, I was very happy with the job done and definitely recommend it to anyone wishing to give their house a new look or to increase the value prior to putting it on the market for sale.
