Replacing a roof can be a complex project. Even if you hire a reputable company with plenty of experience, a lot can still go wrong if you don’t plan ahead properly. These errors can be a waste of time and cause you to far exceed your original budget, which is something nobody wants. In today’s post, your friends over at Bone Dry Roofing – Florida share some major mistakes to avoid when planning to replace your roof.
Not hiring a local company. While there’s nothing wrong with hiring a good roofing company from out of state, this isn’t really recommended, especially for a replacement job. Hiring local means that you can easily get in contact with your roofing contractor should issues arise after the project is completed.
Putting a priority on price. While cost is always a concern, it shouldn’t be the only consideration. As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. This is especially true when it comes to your roof. Don’t make the mistake of skimping on quality in order to get a lower price. You may think that you’re saving money, but a cheap roof will actually end up costing you more in repairs in the long run.
Not insisting on a written estimate. Another error that homemakers sometimes make is not asking for a written estimate that outlines in detail the scope of the work to be completed and an itemized list of materials. Make sure that you get everything in writing so that you’re not surprised by “add-ons” and “incidentals” later on. You also don’t want to work with a roofer that will leave a pile of old shingles on your driveway unless you pay “extra” for them to take them away.
