Having a well-planned budget is essential to making sure that your roof replacement project is finished with good build quality and with minimal delays. Unlike what a few people may think, there’s more to setting a budget than simply having enough cash to buy it. Our roof repair and replacement experts are here to go over the essentials of a proper roofing budget.
One of the biggest factors that will affect your roof replacement budget is the material that will be used for the project. When checking out each option, you will have to pay attention to the expected cost per square (100 square feet). You want to avoid going too cheap as to sacrifice quality, but a high-end option isn’t always the best especially if something just as effective is available for much less.
The Roof Slope
A roof’s slope or incline will dictate how many shingles or panels will be necessary to completely protect your entire home. The steeper your roof’s slope is, the more materials your roof replacement will need. You also have to see if your new roof will also have a different slope compared to your current one because changing the roof’s profile will also cost you extra.
You don’t want to suddenly run short of cash for materials just because something unexpected got in the way of your roof replacement project. By setting a “buffer” of about 15-20% of the project’s total cost, you’ll have something to use in case extra work is needed before your roof replacement is completed.
Hiring Local Contractors
Hiring certified local roofing contractors will keep you and your roof protected from issues related to poor installation. Do not be afraid of turning down roofers offering outrageously low prices. Roofing and siding experts with a good reputation will offer more competitive pricing, but the service fees are a worthy investment considering the trouble you can avoid.
