Roofing FAQ: How do I Stay on Budget?
Whether you’ve been planning a roofing project for your home or business for quite some time, or require roofing repair and replacement due to unforeseen circumstances, there are always ways to stay on budget. Nevertheless, there are so many roofing options out there that it’s easy to become overwhelmed with information. You may also be confused about who you can trust.
At RoofPRO, we want all of our customers to be informed enough to make the best decisions. Here are a few tips to stay on budget and find the best materials solution for a quality installation.
Set a Budget
You can’t stay on budget if you don’t set a budget. Of course, every home and business owner wants to stay on or under budget for any type of home repair project. It’s important to look at what you can afford and make a plan for what you can spend. Having a budget in place will allow you to make smart decisions when looking for a roofing contractor.
Get a Few Estimates
We understand the merits of loyalty to one company, but in order to stay within your budget, it’s smart to shop around. To be an informed shopper, make sure to call around to trusted and certified roofing companies in your area. Most companies offer free estimates, so be sure to ask about them. Have a few companies come out and give their take on the money and time it will take to complete your roofing job. Every roofing company will have a different formula that they use to provide a cost estimate. After you’ve spoken with more than two companies (preferably), you are more likely to make an informed decision that helps you stay on budget.
Pick the Best Material
Not all roofing materials are created equal. Some are far more budget friendly than others. You may also save more in the long run by choosing a material with a longer lifespan. Additionally, some materials pay for themselves with energy efficiency savings. A good roofing contractor will go over materials options with you and provide you with recommendations based on your specific needs and budget.
Because there are many different manufacturers of roofing materials, it is important to shop around at a few vendors. For example Owens Corning and GAF are some popular shingle brands. We highly recommend these top-rated companies because they offer durable materials with outstanding warranty options.
When it comes to roofing materials, shop around to various vendors and inquire whether a roofing supplier has rebates and warranties for their materials. Using rebates and having a warranty in place will enable you to get the most out of your roofing investment.
