Ideal Materials for Affordable Roof Replacement
Everyone has a budget. When it comes to home repairs, those budgetary restrictions often have very little wiggle room. At RoofPro, we want to be upfront about what your options are to keep roof replacement and repairs as affordable as possible. Here’s a list of materials types and brands that we think offer budget-friendly options without foregoing quality.
We think gutters are a very important part of any residential and commercial roofing system. Gutters divert water away from collecting on your rooftop. They are a relatively inexpensive option to add to your roof to protect your investment. If you currently have gutters, but notice they are falling or not connecting anymore, replacement is also a budget-friendly option.
Gutters are critically important and should be cleaned and maintained to ensure full functionality. An appropriately functioning gutter system can extend the life of your roofing materials. According to national averages, galvanized or aluminum gutters cost around $1,050-$2,400. This price can be cheaper with vinyl options. Our experienced RoofPro team members would be happy to give you an estimate on gutter installation or repair. We also offer full-scale gutter maintenance services to keep your roofing system in top condition.
Siding is an extra layer of defense against severe weather and an important aspect of protection for your home or business. Not only does it protect, it also adds curb appeal and can increase the value of your home. Siding comes in many material options such as vinyl, aluminum, wood, and cement.
For the most affordable option, you will want to consider vinyl. Vinyl is overwhelmingly popular and most budget-conscious homeowners are able to easily replace this material. On average, vinyl costs anywhere between $2-$5 per square foot installed according to the Remodeling Calculator. Although vinyl is the most affordable option, it isn’t as durable as other options. If you’re looking for affordability and durability, aluminum may be your best bet. This option is between $2.50-$4.50 per square foot and is insect-proof, fire-resistant, and can stand the high winds we often see in the Baltimore area.

Not as popular as they once were, attic fans still may be a smart option for you depending on the age of your home. This residential ventilation option is used to provide fresh air and cool your home. The average attic fan installation costs between $300 and $600 to install (labor included).
If you’re considering fan options, it is important to note that attic and whole-house fans are for different uses. An attic fan is just as the name implies – for the attic. Whole-house fans are a supplemental system designed to quickly pull large amounts of cool, fresh air from outside and circulate it throughout the house. Installation can be an extremely expensive job. Repairing one that is already in place is not nearly as costly, but if you’re trying to look for affordable options to cool your home, whole-house fans are not the best option.
Our recommendation for affordable cooling is good insulation services throughout the home. RoofPro offers air sealing and attic insulation services to affordably regulate your home’s temperature.
Our team at RoofPro likes to be as transparent as possible when offering the most affordable roofing repair options. We understand that most roofing repairs come as a surprise to a homeowner, so we try to make this an easy process for our customers.
The bottom line is that repairs are cheaper than total replacements. If your roof is still relatively new and only has a few spots damaged, we will always recommend repair. We will never try to upsell you! If you have noticed a leak in one area and we are positive that it can be controlled, we will isolate and repair that one section without an entire replacement. If you have shingles, a repair should be affordable. If your roofing material is still under warranty, you may be able to get the necessary repairs without even opening your checkbook. Our customer service team can help you determine if you are still under warranty.
If your roof has been damaged or is nearing the end of its lifespan, we can help you get the most out of your replacement budget. There are many options on the market for roofing materials these days, Shingles are by far the most affordable option for a total replacement. GAF offers a variety of shingles options backed by its industry-leading warranty. Metal is also becoming a popular option for roofing because of its cost friendliness and durability. Metal can withstand even some of the harshest weather conditions. According to DoItYourself.com, metal is the second least expensive option on the market at around $1.80 per square foot.
Because of the wide variety of options, our customer service team has recommendations for every budget. We would be happy to walk you through these options and find something that works for your individual needs.
