To start with, it’s vital to get your estimate for roof replacement in writing from a licensed roofing contractor. Trying to save money by cutting corners and hiring a handyman isn’t the way to go. In fact, many insurance companies won’t cover future damage unless a licensed contractor installed your new roof. In addition to the licensing – make sure that the estimate is detailed and lists everything, including demolition, disposal, materials, labor, and guarantee. When looking for honesty check out reviews.
How Does Installing a New Roof Save You Money?
If you’ve gotten some roofing quotes from local contractors, you may be experiencing a bit of sticker shock. There are no doubts about it — a new roof is expensive. While installing a new roof is a large investment upfront, it can save you money in the long term. Here’s how:
Energy efficiency: Installing a new roof is a good time to upgrade your home’s energy efficiency. You can install better insulation, improve ventilation, and opt for shingles that deter heat, increasing energy efficiency.
More moisture protection: New shingles and roof underlayment offer better protection. This will help ensure less potential water damage to the sheathing of your roof and save you money on costly repairs.
Save on insurance: An old roof is a liability. Replacing your roof brings it up to the current building code and provides better performance in extreme weather, saving you money on insurance.
