It is not the most disruptive home improvement project out there, but a residential roof replacement requires a lot of consideration. It pays to understand the roof replacement process so you can keep track of its progress. It all starts with asking your roofing contractor the right questions.
Harmony Home Improvement shares the practical roof replacement questions you can ask your prospective roofer.
“How Long Does It Take to Replace a Roof?”
A roof replacement project can take a few days up to a week to finish barring unexpected structural problems. Then again, many things can affect the roofing timeline, including permit delays, lead time problems and inclement weather. An experienced roofer, however, knows how to plan ahead to ensure everything is on the right track.
“What Is the Best Roofing Material for My Home?”
Some roofing products might be more popular than the others, but reputable residential roofing contractors will tell you your choice should depend on various factors. These include the climate in your area, the material’s weight, the roof’s slope, your home’s architectural style and your budget. Throw in energy efficiency and maintenance, as well. Once you take these factors into account, then you can select the best product that makes sense for your situation.
“How Can I Spend Less on a Roof Replacement?”
You don’t have to spend a fortune just to get your roof replaced. There are, in fact, ways you can spend less on this project. For instance, check if your roof is under warranty. If it is damaged and is still under warranty, you could get all or a portion of it repaired. Also, try to time your project right. Roofers tend to offer discounts during late winter or spring, but try to find out the time of year when roofing demands begin to slow down in your area.
