As a responsible homeowner, you would want nothing but the best for your home. There will come a time when you’ll eventually have to replace your roof. As such, you will want to ask your roofing contractor some questions before embarking on the project. But what if this is a first for you and you don’t even know where to start, or which questions to ask?
In today’s post, your expert on modified bitumen roof replacement, Fields Roof Service, shares some practical questions you can ask your roofing contractor before a roof replacement project.
- Should I Stay Home During a Roof Replacement? The short answer is, no. Some people might say that it’s totally fine, but for your own safety, it’s important to vacate your home for the duration of the roof replacement project as there might be debris that may fall during the project. Not to mention you’ll be left vulnerable as you temporarily don’t have a roof to protect your home from the elements. Also, noise from the project prevents you from getting a good night’s sleep.
- How Can I Spend Less on a Roof Replacement Project? If your area has terrible weather and you have an insurance policy to your name, this could net you significant discounts on your roof replacement project. You can also get multiple quotes from different roofing companies in your city. Also, check if your roof still has an existing warranty. If a portion or your entire roof is damaged, the warranty can cover the repair cost for free. It’s also a great idea to schedule your roof replacement project during the late winter or early spring seasons where roofers offer the biggest discounts.
- How Long Does It Take to Replace My Roof? It depends on a lot of factors. Are you undergoing a full roof replacement? Are you only replacing a small portion of your roof? How big is your house? Is there inclement weather in your area? All of these factors dictate the length of your roof replacement project. However, a roof replacement project for a 1000-2000 square foot home can take around 1-3 days to complete.
- How Much Does a Roof Replacement Cost? A roof replacement project costs about $6,000 on average. A low-end replacement costs $1,200, while a high-end roof replacement costs around $30,000.
