If you are a homeowner, you’ll need to be ready to fund a roofing project at some point along the way. Whether it’s a roofing repair or replacement, your budget needs to be in place to complete these projects in a timely manner. According to Home Advisor, an average homeowner spends $7,634 to install a new roof and, in some areas, that estimate can be upwards of $10,000 or more. It’s important to have a plan in place to budget for these times. Here are four steps to get you on the right path for affording this important project.
1. Know the Price
Long before your roof ever needs maintenance, you should know what kind of investment a repair and/or replacement looks like in your area. No two geographical areas are the same in terms of average pricing, so you will need to do a bit of research to understand how your budget needs to look. Now more than ever, there are tools in place for homeowners to educate themselves on the expenses. One of those tools is the Roofing Calculator, an online tool where you can price out national averages by size, slope, levels, and more. Another way to arrive at an estimate is to call reputable certified roofers like RoofPRO. We offer free estimates with no obligation for customers in the Baltimore and Howard County areas. Our estimating service is just another tool in your pocket for creating a successful roofing budget.
This may seem like a no-brainer, but once you have those estimates in place for what you need, start saving! If you make a budget, stick to it. Take a look at what roofing materials you will need and make a plan. The more you prepare, the better off you will be when the time comes for a new roof. If you have savings, you’re less likely to make rash decisions when the time comes to hire a contractor. If you have a plan, you’re more likely to make a smart decision when looking for a roofing contractor. For more information on budgeting, check out our FAQ blog post on the topic.
