Roofing upgrades are one of the essential projects your property has to go through. Despite the expected lifespan of any system, your roof will likely deteriorate over time due to various factors, which include pests and extreme weather conditions. This means it is inevitable to deal with contractors when the time comes that it would need a repair or replacement. Today, we will talk about what to ask before having your roof replaced.
- “How long does a replacement usually take?” It is vital to be aware of the project timeline because this depends a lot on the condition of your system. For instance, if there’s damage that must be dealt with, it will require more work and time. A roof with fewer planes takes less time to cover than a similar size with several planes. Meanwhile, an outdated one may require repairs or must be updated to comply with current building codes.
- “How much will the entire replacement cost?” Take note that this will vary depending on many factors. Speak with your roofer about the quality of the materials they will use, your system’s condition, the process, and other necessary charges. You are entitled to have a detailed and accurate written estimate to set your expectations easily.
- “Should I stay in the house during the project?” Any professional would immediately say no. Although keeping up with your routines is critical, being around during a roof replacement is risky. This involves a lot of dust, noise and movements. Indeed, it will be challenging to focus and move around.
- “What if it rains during the installation?” Your roofer should always be aware of rain forecasts like any licensed contractor. If it does rain, it’s in your best interest to postpone work until it can start or resume in dry conditions.
