Replacing your roof is a big investment, which is why it’s important to come up with a detailed, realistic budget ahead of time that you know you can stick to. In today’s post, Integrity Roofing and Siding, your reliable roofing contractor, shares some tips:
Make a Detailed List of All Anticipated Expenses
Many factors go into identifying your budget. These include the extent of damage to your roof, the materials you choose, the size of your roof and the time the project will take to finish. Some issues are not easy to spot, so have your contractor inspect your roof and explain all the details of your project.
Select the Right Material
Your choice of roofing material has a big impact on the overall cost of your project. To choose the right material for your needs, consider durability, life expectancy and maintenance requirements. Asphalt shingles are the most versatile and affordable option, but depending on the quality, they may need to be replaced sooner than other materials. Metal, on the other hand, can last up to 50 years, but it typically involves a higher upfront cost. Integrity Roofing and Siding can recommend the perfect solution if you are unsure of your choices.
Prepare for Contingencies
As your contractor removes your old roof, they may find unforeseen problems that can add to your expenses. Maybe some of the wood rafters have decayed or the gutters have sustained serious damage. It’s important to be prepared in case something like that happens. Set aside 20% of your budget as a contingency.
