Replacing the roof may be the most important upgrade your client can make to the exterior of his or her home, according to the National Association of REALTORS®’ 2017 Remodeling Impact Report. The report takes a look at the cost of the most common exterior and interior renovation projects and gauges how appealing they are to home buyers at resale.

REALTORS® ranked new roofing, vinyl windows, and garage door as the three exterior projects that have the most appeal to buyers. Based on the potential for return-on-investment, the following exterior projects offer the best chances for the biggest returns at resale, according to the report.
