A home’s roof can add significant value to a property, First National’s national communications manager Stewart Bunn has said.
According to Mr Bunn, a roof’s construction and material is being increasingly considered as a profit generator, environmental protector and money saver for home buyers.
“Recent reports indicate the addition of ‘green features’ such as solar panels will significantly increase the price home buyers are prepared to pay for the property as well as its sales appeal,” Mr Bunn said.
With solar power roofs, Mr Bunn said electricity bills can be immediately reduced, and surplus electricity can be fed back into the electricity grid, providing savings to the home owner.
“Investing in roof-top solar power, and other solar power options, makes good sense for the home owner, potential purchasers, the community and the environment.”
Before installing solar panels, Mr Bunn advises a home owner seek the advice and expertise of a fully-qualified professional.
