Your home's roof is a lot like your left arm: you don't really think about it until it isn't working properly. Most homeowners do not prepare for major replacement projects and are therefore caught off guard when it comes time to replace the roof. Roof replacement can be costly. According to HomeAdvisor.com, the average roof replacement cost in the United States will cost between $5,000 and $11,000. That's no small sum! Even if you do have this kind of money lying around, chances are you will want to minimize costs. Here are some tips and tricks to keeping costs down for your next re-roofing project.
Create an Outline for Your Project
As the old saying goes: success is 90% preparation and 10% perspiration. From taking successful vacations to having a new roof installed, preparation is key. Failing to plan can mean higher costs in the long run. Before your project begins, take time to consider a few different considerations with regard to your roof. The pitch of your roof, the size of your house, and what materials you would like your roofing contractor to use should all be thought about ahead of time. Getting estimates from several different roofing companies will allow you to compare prices and find a plan that fits your budget. As always, only work with licensed roofing contractors and never with unlicensed ones.
In many cases, roof replacement projects are unforeseen and cannot wait to be repaired. If your roof is damaged by inclement weather during a storm, it will need to be replaced without delay. Do you have a method for roof financing in place? It is always best to have a plan in place before it becomes an issue. It is also recommended that you avoid making any changes to your plan once work has begun. Any alterations made are likely to delay and/or add considerable costs to your project. The only changes you need to make to your plan should be ones involving issues that may not have been discovered during the planning phase of your project.
