Follow a Plan for Your New Roof
Thursday, March 10th, 2022 by Laura Linderman
- Choose a contractor who is experienced, reputable, and established in your community
- It’s a good idea to talk to your contractor about future home improvement projects, since they may impact the way your contractor does their job. For example, adding insulation in the attic after the roof replacement could interfere with the attic ventilation system, resulting in moisture problems
- Your roofing contractor will visit before the project begins. Treat it like a doctor’s appointment—ask all your questions so you have a complete understanding of the process in your home. Unanswered questions could lead to a very wrong assumption.
- Select your roofing shingle by considering its style, durability, cost, and the climate where you live.
- Get a few quotes before making a decision and ask questions to understand the costs.
- Know your budget - a new roof can be expensive, and knowing your budget or financing options can help you choose the right roofer and products.
- As a courtesy, let neighbors know when your new roof will be installed.
