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.
