The housing market in New Zealand continues to be one of the most popular in the world, and homeowners are more concerned than ever that each improvement they make to their home adds more lasting value than the initial cost.
A sizable, but valuable, upgrade such as new gutters will come under some scrutiny, which we at Three65 Spouting understand. With this in mind, in this blog post we’ll let you know why new rain gutters definitely add far more value to your home’s worth than they’ll ever cost you.
A visible sign of improvement
When you have old or poorly maintained gutters on the front of your house, potential buyers will be consciously put off buying the property – something that will undeniably lead to you selling your home for a lower price. This is based on ‘curb appeal’ – the idea that how appealing your home looks from the street will be one of the (very many) determining factors in its sale price.
For this reason, many homeowners looking to sell will invest in a new paint job for the house or even just the roof. However, new gutters are a great way to both complement painting improvements and add value of their own – new gutters are not only visually appealing but also practical, meaning they’ll not only improve the initial appearance, but keep your home looking beautiful too.
Update your home’s technology
One of the better things about adding rain gutters to your home in 2018 is that they are often packaged with updated technology – making it even easier for them to add great value to your home. While with older gutters you’re contending with simple rainwater collection that will very often need to be cleaned out, modern rain gutters come with technology such as gutter guards that help them to stay in better condition – say goodbye to the overflowing gutters of the past!
Gutters with these leaf guards won’t be able to collect the debris and leaves that lead to mould and mildew, so your home will be kept in better condition and, very importantly, your roof will have a much greater lifespan. Roofs are affected and weakened by the mould, mildew and damp that come with old gutters – the components of your house will be much healthier thanks to the new gutters you have installed.
