Study Shows the Value of a New Roof

Study Shows the Value of a New Roof


Homeowners are always remodeling and redesigning their home for multiple reasons. Whatever the project, the majority of homeowners experience many benefits after completing the project such as increased enjoyment of their home, a typical sense of joy from seeing the finished project, and a major sense of accomplishment.


So does this apply to roofing as well?

Of course!



The National Association of Remodeling Industry recently did a study on remodeling homes. This study included the claim that installing a new roof is an incredible investment. Installing a new roof has many benefits:


  • Increases performance and durability of your roof
  • Improves aesthetic appearance and curb appeal
  • Increases energy efficiency
  • Adds value to your home


Why Get a New Roof?

According to the Remodeling Impact Report, the top reason homeowners get a new roof is to upgrade the worn-out surfaces, finishes, and materials. Homeowners also replaced their roof to improve energy efficiency. Roofing materials and roofing companies like Capstone are getting better and better in terms of increasing energy efficiency with better roofing materials and ventilation.


The most important result from getting a new roof: durable and long-lasting results and materials. Homeowners want results that last and also look great. After all, these remodeling projects are done to their homes. That is why it is important to have a roofing company you can trust.


What Happens Emotionally After I Get a New Roof?

There are more benefits than just the product when it comes to roofing. Let’s take a look at the data for a moment to see how else you could benefit from a roofing project.


  • 61% of homeowners have a greater desire to be home since completing the project
  • 66% have the same level of enjoyment when they are at home
  • 62% have a major sense of accomplishment when they think of the project


What does this mean for you? According to the NARI, it means a Joy Score of 9.6. The Joy Score is a rating from 1-10 that indicates joy from your completed project. This means a new roof could make you more joyful! Who knew?!


Roofing Seems like a Large Project – What’s the Payoff?

According to the data, “45% of REALTORS® suggested sellers add new roofing before attempting to sell, and 32% said the project most recently helped clinch a deal for them, resulting in a closed sale.”


Studies also say the average homeowner recovered 105% of their investment in their roof (that’s making money).

We all have remodeling projects we want to take care of in our home and a roof might be one of them. A quality roof installed by a quality roofing company could mean a lot for a homeowner:
