Replacing your roofing is a big event and it requires an equally big investment. Even the simplest roofing job is a complex project in its own right and an outright replacement is among the biggest roofing projects you’ll do. So, we have put togetther a list of what you need to remember before you replace your roof.
Superior Roofing lists five reminders.
1. Determine the Scope of the Job
Before you plan your roofing project, determine how big or small the replacement work is. Are you just going to replace the shingles and tiles of your roofing or are you replacing the entire roof? Knowing the scope of the actual roofing job will make the next steps easier.
2. Hire a Professional Roofer
It’s tempting to do your own roofing project, but replacing your roof is risky and complex. You might even spend more if you go DIY since you need to invest on tools. We recommend hiring our professional team if you’re planning to do a roof replacement, as we can guarantee the right roofing job the first time around.
3. Set Your Budget, But Don’t Skimp
Setting your budget for your roofing project is important, but you shouldn’t skimp on the price. Your roof is an integral component of your house since it not only protects you from the elements, it also contributes a lot to your home’s ventilation and insulation. So when you’re setting a budget, don’t go cheap. Remember: your roof is a lifetime investment.
4. Set Your Schedule
Roof replacement is messy work, so don’t be surprised if your home accumulates more dust and debris than usual. Set a schedule so that the roofers don’t interrupt your daily home routine and vice-versa.
5. Prepare Your Home for the Big Day
Finally, move furniture away from critical areas of your living space and clear any decor on the walls. We also recommend preparing a generous space for the roofing team to put their materials and tools.
