There are many questions you must ask yourself when it comes to making roofing repair decisions on your home. Here are a few of the main ones you need to ask yourself:
As a homeowner you are faced with a lot of different decisions regarding your house. If you are like most people money is not limitless and you have to choose things you can do right now to your home and things that can wait. Many times, this means putting a Band-Aid on some repair that’s needed now to your home in hopes that it will buy you some time to save for the better repair that is needed.
Such is the case with roofing repair decisions many times. You might really need a whole roof replacement yet you will try to nurse it along for a year or two doing smaller repairs until you are more comfortable spending the money on it. The big question is if this is a wise choice or not?
What could possibly go wrong by putting the roof replacement off? Well there is a chance that nothing will happen by putting it off. There is also the chance that it could make the roofing replacement your home needs much more expensive.
If you are investing in smaller repairs on a regular basis it’s probably because you are experiencing such things as leaks in your home. Those roof leaks may be causing damage to the support structure of your roof too. A normal roof replacement includes the sheathing, underlayment and roof covering. If you put off your roof replacement and then the structure of the roof needs some repairs also it could significantly drive up the cost of your roof replacement.
The other thing you need to be careful of in deciding whether your home’s roof needs to be repaired or replaced is the cost of those repairs. If you are not careful these so called “Band-Aid” repair costs can start to add up in a hurry and again make you spend far more money than you would have if you had just replaced your roof. Sometimes it is better to try and take out a loan or secure other financing to get the roof replacement done and over with.
Putting a true cost on even the most common roofing repairs is difficult at best with all of the different factors that go into repairing a roof. We certainly don’t want to put prices down here and then have them be way off one way or another.
Most of the roofing companies like us will give you free inspections and estimates anyway which will give you all the answers you will need as to how much your roofing repair will cost. The more estimates you get the better idea you will have of the total cost of your roofing repair (getting three estimates from reputable companies such as Roofy’s Roofs is recommended in given you that peace of mind).
A lot of your roofing costs will come down to what type of material your roof is made of. Shingled roofs will be the least expensive type of roof to repair and other materials such as synthetic shingles, decorative tile and raised metal roofs will be more expensive. It also goes without saying that roof size will be a big factor in the price of any roofing repair you get done. The bigger the roof the more materials and labor it will take to do that roofing repair.
Also, until someone gets up on the roof and actually looks at what exactly needs to be repaired, you won’t know if there are any additional costs such as replacing sheathing, replacing underlayment or rotting trim pieces that need to be replaced. By signing up with Roofy’s Roofs and joining the thousands of satisfied folks, you will receive many benefits including but not limited to extensive record keeping of your property’s roof and yearly progression on its remaining life expectancy.
