We’ve had a decent amount of snow and rain in Utah this year, which can make you aware of some places your home may need improvement. If you are getting a large amount of ice accumulating on your roof, you may want to install heat cables, which assist in melting the ice and snow on your roof.
It’s always a good idea to check you roof prior to selling. If your home needs a new roof, it can often deter potential buyers, or even hold up the buying process during the inspection. Many local roofing companies offer free inspections that include an estimate to help you understand what kind of condition your roof is in. Sometimes a full roof replacement isn’t required, but simply needs re-shingled. A professional roofing company can tell you the extent of work your roof will require. Most roofing projects can be completed throughout the spring and summer. The housing market will get a boost this spring as sellers begin to list, so make a list of home improvements you’ll need before listing your home.
If you home does require new shingles, consider it an opportunity to add an extra pop to your home. There are numerous shingles options available to ensure you find something that matches the color scheme and style of your home. Just as painting your door or replacing your garage door can add an updated look to your home, so can updating your shingles. It’s another element of curb appeal that a potential buyer may notice as they initially pull up to your home.
