Easy Ways to Save on Your New Roof

Replacing your home’s roof can be a significant expense and investment. However, there are a few ways you can reduce the cost and still get high-quality results. You can keep your family safe and warm while maintaining or enhancing your property’s value and aesthetic appeal.

Choose Cost-Effective Roofing Materials

Do some price and feature comparisons to find the materials that offer the right amount of durability, aesthetic value, and price that fits your budget. Asphalt shingles are more cost-effective than some other roofing materials. Additionally, you can choose from different grades and price points of shingles, depending on the look and durability you require.

Another option is metal roofing, which may cost more than asphalt tiles. However, metal roofs are more energy-efficient, which can keep your utility costs lower over time.

Get Multiple Roofing Quotes

Getting multiple quotes is very worthwhile to save money on your roof. Aim for at least three quotes from different roofing companies, and talk to people you know with houses similar in size and type who have recently replaced their roofs. These steps can give you an idea of the range of pricing.

Each quote should be detailed to show the price breakdown. Compare the cost of the materials and labor. Ask what type of warranty each company offers. For instance, the materials manufacturer might offer a lifetime warranty, while the roofer may offer a more limited warranty on the installation work. If one roofer looks better overall but is more expensive, your research and other quotes may help you negotiate a better price with them.

However, avoid choosing based on price alone because some roofers may omit crucial components such as drip edge to lower their quote. Skilled, experienced labor is worth paying for because even the best materials will leak or fail if not installed using the correct roofing techniques.

Pick the Right Time of Year

Plan your roof replacement before it becomes an emergency because you will pay a premium if you need the replacement immediately. Roofing companies have fewer workers during certain times of the year, such as late fall or winter.

Scheduling your replacement for the right time of year also puts you in a better position to ask for discounts. Consider the number of roofing companies in your area and the severity of the weather, as roofers can’t work when it rains or snows due to safety concerns.

Have Regular Roof Inspections

An entire roof doesn’t “go bad” all at once. You can prevent significant issues by having regular roof inspections and maintenance. In some cases, you can get many more years out of your roof before a total replacement by catching problems early and having spot repairs done.

Protect Your Valuable Home

Replacing your roof doesn’t have to empty your wallet. By following these tips and making decisions based on multiple bids and other information, you can save while ensuring you get the best protection for your home.

Joe promptly answered our call for assistance, even though it was the day before Thanksgiving. Joe went out of his way to complete a roof inspection within a very tight time frame and provided the information we needed. He took the time to answer our questions and was polite and punctual as well.
