The 2015 edition of the Cost vs. Value Report, which compares changes in job costs with Realtors’ perceptions of what those jobs bring to a home’s price at resale, has just been published by Hanley Wood’s Remodeling Magazine.
The survey compares the average cost for 36 popular remodeling projects with the value those projects retain at resale in 102 U.S. markets. The national cost vs. value score for Metal Roofing, which is the product ranked as “upscale roofing” in the survey, remained essentially flat in the 2015 report at 62.9%, just 0.1% less than 2014’s score of 63%.
However, in some key regions of the country, such as the South Atlantic, where metal roofing is strong, the cost vs. value ratio rose by as much as 7.6%.
