What Homeowners Need to Know Before Getting a New Roof

As responsible homeowners, we should know how to take good care of all parts of our household—and that includes the roof.

The roof serves a very important role for all our homes. It protects our homes from all harsh exterior conditions, keeping us safe and warm.

A well-designed, properly installed and well-maintained roof can hold up over a long time. But when it has finally reached the end of its lifespan, we should expect the unexpected and consider installing a new one soon.

Getting a new roof can be a huge investment. To ensure you get the most of your money, you need to know a few things first.

  1. Look for the most credible roofers.

The first thing you need to secure when installing a new roof is hiring a professional roofing company who values customer satisfaction above else. Some roofers don’t worry too much whether their clients get satisfied with their roof replacement job or not.

 

  1. See to it that you only get quality parts.

If you availed fifty-year shingles for your roof, make sure you go for top quality parts that can also last for 50 years. Don’t settle with cheaper and lower quality parts that could only last for around ten or fifteen years.

  1. Roof replacement or re-roofing?

Aside from stripping away the old roof, you also have the option to lay an additional layer of shingles over the existing layer. This saves you over a thousand bucks. If you have budget constraints, then this is also a viable option.

However, you should still discuss with your roofing contractor if re-roofing is possible for your roof.

  1. A proper ventilation goes a long way.

A well-designed ventilation can prolong the life of any roofing system. A faulty ventilation may lead to moisture and heat build-up in your attic. Due to this, the roof decking and shingles can get severely damaged over time.

  1. Don’t forget about the warranties.

Aside from the warranty from the roof manufacturer, you should also get a workmanship warranty from your roofing contractor.
