Reading Roofing Tip of the Month: 5 Tips That Will Help You Save Money During Roof Replacement



After 20 years of being exposed to the UV rays of the sun and battling the strong wind and torrential rain, there is a possibility that your roof will have to be replaced. For those who live in the area that experience severe weather condition, the time to replace the roof will be a lot sooner. However, not many of us will be thrilled about this news due to the expenses that it entails. The basic roof replacement may cost at about $20,000 for a midrange house.

How to Save Money for Roof Replacement

The roofing materials will not be cheap, even the most affordable material will put a dent in your financial statement. Fortunately, there are ways on how you can dramatically reduce the cost.

1. Doing Your Homework

You will need to understand first the complexity and the size of your roof. Look at the materials that you will use. This should give you a rough estimate on the expenses that you may incur. You will be encountering the term square' during your research. Each square would be equivalent to 100sq. ft. All these bits of information will be necessary when interacting with the roofing professionals.

2. Look Around

You should not immediately settle for the first company that you will come across during your research. Look around and choose at least three companies at the beginning. When looking for a prospected company, avoid doing business with a company that offers their service at a very cheap price. You should also make sure that they are armed with insurance and they offer warranty. During the interview, ask them with the important question and choose the company based on their expertise and knowledge.

3. The Time

Timing plays a key role if you want to save money on the roof replacement process. The peak season of the roofers would be during fall and summer. This means that their service can also be expensive during this time. Choosing to replace your roof during the late part of the winter and during spring can lead to lower expenses.

4. Using Insurance

Your homeowner's insurance will generally cover the damages acquired by our roof especially if the damage is not caused by your neglect. For instance, if after the hailstorm you noticed that some of the shingles has been knocked off, your insurance should cover the expenses.

5. DIY Work

While you may not be confident in completing the whole roof replacement yourself, there are some small works that you can complete. For instance, removing the old roofing materials might be an easy job. Be sure that you will inform the roofer about this in advance. Before you even dismantle the roof jacks and forks, the roofer will need to approve this first.

While you want to save money on roof replacement, you should also make sure that you will remain safe during the process. If you are not comfortable in doing some of the works, then allow the professional to handle the entire job. An unexpected accident or damage can increase your expenses unpredictably.
