A roof replacement project can be an exciting endeavor for any homeowner that offers many long-term benefits and add tremendous value to your home. It can, however, also be a source of a great deal of stress especially if the project is improperly planned and poorly executed. Fortunately, with a little preparation and with the aid of a reputable roofing company, a major roofing project need not be a source of irritation and headaches.
Avoid roof-related frustration by following these four pro tips from Fields Roof Service:
Pro Tip #1: Document Everything
When it comes to a roof replacement, a project notebook can be your best friend. Keep a record of everything that is related to your project in one place to avoid having to hunt things down later when you need them.
Pro Tip #2: Set Aside Emergency Funds
Unforeseen problems, while rare in residential or commercial roofing projects, is not completely unheard of. Delays due to inclement weather and other difficulties may arise causing you to go beyond your original budget. Setting aside between 10-20% of your budget will help you mitigate stress should something unexpected occurs.
Pro Tip #3: Consider All Payment Options
A roof replacement project can get expensive and an unexpected repair or replacement job is stressful enough without having to worry about how to pay for the service. Be sure to talk to your contractor about financing options and select the best payment scheme that works for you.
Pro Tip #4: Hire a Good Contractor
Last but certainly not the least, you should hire a roofer with a proven track record of excellent work. Ask for references, take time to do some research, and make sure that they are certified with a major roofing manufacturer such as GAF to ensure that everything goes smoothly.
