One of the biggest decisions that you as a Memorial / Galleria area homeowner will face is when it comes to repairing your roof and whether it’s best to continue putting money into roofing repairs or just get your whole roof replaced. There are good reasons for each. Sometimes your budget will be a determining factor and sometimes you may opt for peace of mind over costs. Here are some things to consider when faced with a roofing repair or replacement decision.
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 Memorial / Galleria area 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 at least three estimates is recommended but don’t go overboard and get 20 either because then you are wasting many roofers valuable time).
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 also. 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 at your Memorial / Galleria home and actually takes a look 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 too.
It’s extremely hard to say what a roof replacement in the Memorial / Galleria area will cost because of all the different factors that will go into that extensive type of roofing project. If your one of those people that has to have a figure a small shingled roof could cost as little as $5000 to replace and a very large Spanish tile roof could run well over $25,000 to replace the entire roof. You have to remember when a roof replacement is being done it replaces the sheathing, underlayment and surface material of your Memorial / Galleria roof.
Of course the bigger the roof the more expensive your roof replacement will cost. You will have more materials that go into a job and more labor hours to do the work. Roofing costs are typically figured based upon what is known as a “square”. A square is a 10’ x 10’ section of roof.
The type of surface roofing material that is being used is another significant factor in figuring out the cost of a total roof replacement. A shingle roof will cost much less money to replace than something like a synthetic tile roof.
The steepness of your Memorial / Galleria roof will be a big factor in determining roof replacement pricing also. The steeper a roof is the longer the job will take because more safety precautions will have to be taken and it’s harder to do the work under those conditions.
Long flat runs of shingles on an open roof don’t take a lot of time to put on but if you add gabled windows, skylights and multiple contours to that scenario it can be a roofers worst nightmare. It will also make your roof replacement much more expensive.
It is not easy to pick a roofing contractor to replace the roof on your Memorial / Galleria home. There are many contractors in the area to choose from. One of the most difficult parts of the selection process is to find out who is reputable and established as opposed to a company that flies by the seat of their pants.
Needless to say replacing a roof is a big task that takes a lot of skill and experience. You don’t want just anybody on top of your home doing the job. If that roof replacement is not done right you have to remember you have a house full of valuable possessions sitting under your roof that are only one good leak away from being lost. If you get a bad enough leak in the roof of your Memorial / Galleria home things such as photos, computers and artwork may be damaged beyond saving.
To avoid that scenario here are a few tips for hiring a competent roofing contractor:
