Top 3 Things to Consider When Replacing Your Roof

Posted in Roofing Contractor Gary Indiana

Roof Replacement Tips

Thinking of replacing your roof this summer? When faced with the reality that they have a leaky or faulty roof that needs replacement, budget is the number one consideration of homeowners. A new roof can cost between $7,000-9,000 for a standard size home, but there are other things to consider as well. Here are some general guidelines to use when planning a roof replacement project.

  1. How much will it cost? Budget drives most roofing decisions.  Roofing installation costs vary based on time of year you have the work done, roofing material type and other factors. The best thing to do is have your roof inspected by a licensed, experienced roofing contractor in Indiana and receive a written estimate for the work to be done. Summer and fall are typically the busiest seasons for local roofing installers, so it tends to cost more to do your roof work during these time frames.
  2. What will the weather be like and does this affect your roofing project? When you replace a roof, you invariably expose your home to the ill effects of weather at some point. Choosing a time of year when weather is ideal is difficult and it often coincides with the times of year when roof repair or replacement are also more expensive. Some people think that winter is a bad time to replace a roof. In fact, as long as temperatures stay above 45 degrees Fahrenheit and dry, it’s ideal weather conditions for putting on a new roof. So there may be some times in early spring, late fall or even winter when it is ideal to replace your roof.
  3. How long does it take to have a new roof installed? It typically takes from two to four weeks depending on what other repairs to the base roof are needed and any unforeseeable weather interruptions of course. If possible, you want to try and schedule your roof work when the weather will be somewhat reliable over a period of a few weeks. The biggest concern would be rain. You don’t want water getting into your home causing damage.

Roof Replacement or Repair? Which is Better in the Long-run?

Free Roofing Inspection by Licensed Contractor

owens-corning-roofInstalling new roofing is expensive. So, the decision to replace roofing usually happens over time. Homeowners typically wait until they are experiencing leaks or storm damage before making the decision to reroof or have a new roof installed. Sometimes it’s better to repair a damaged roof and other times, replacing the roof is advised.  Here are some tips to help you decide when to replace your home’s roof.

Roof shingles wear out and need replacing about every 20 years.

• High energy bills and draft indoors hint at insulation problems. Homes built 20 years ago are underinsulated by today’s standards. Chances are replacing your roof can lower energy bill and improve your home’s insulation.

• Ice dams cause millions of dollars of structural damage every year. If your roof has ice damage, have the roof inspected by a licensed roofing contractor to determine if repair or replacement is necessary.

• Your roof has experienced storm damage from high winds. Missing and torn off shingles make a home susceptible to rot and water damage. Have your roof inspected if you experience roof damage due to high winds.
