Roof replacement can be a risky business. There are a variety of considerations that need to be taken seriously in order to ensure homeowners receive risk-free roof replacement services. These considerations include knowing the work is being done right, having confidence in your warranty, understanding every cost before starting, staying in the driver’s seat for any decisions, completing a details checklist before hiring your roofer, having productive estimate meetings, and knowing you are getting good value.
This post examines ways you can stay informed regarding key roofing considerations to ensure you stay in the driver’s seat for any roof replacement decisions. Below are some of the key roof replacement considerations to stay on top of.
Roofing Material Decisions
This is by far one of the most important considerations when it comes to roof replacement. The type of materials you choose will be a primary factor in driving costs and determining the quality, durability, longevity, and aesthetics of your entire roofing system. Make sure you research the advantages, disadvantages, and pricing options available for the wide range of roofing materials available. Once you know your options, seek out input from a professional roofer to get recommendations for your specific project.
Local Environmental Considerations
Your local environmental conditions should be considered as you choose the best materials and roofing system for your home. Research how the weather conditions in your area should influence your roofing decisions. In the case of strong sun exposure, you’ll want to look into UV protection. On the other hand, heavy rain and snow will require a capable gutter system.
Decisions Around Insulation and Ventilation
Maintaining proper insulation and ventilation is crucial and impacts your home’s entire infrastructure. Make sure your roofing contractor understands that adequate insulation and ventilation is important to you. Ask them about how your roofing system will impact both. Additionally, have your roofer show you that no soffits, ridge vents, etc. are blocked by the roofing work.
Documentation, Written Estimate, and Warranty Verification
Make sure your roofing contractor has all his or her ducks in a row and check that he or she is licensed, bonded, and insured. You’ll also want to verify any certifications they may have and ensure that they have building permits (if necessary). Thoroughly review the detailed written estimate provided by your roofing company and work with your contractor to make sure you get copies of any desired guarantees and/or warranties.
