It can be overwhelming to think about repairing or replacing your roof. It is a big investment and there are many considerations to take into account. You want the highest quality at the best price, without any unexpected expenses.
What to keep in mind about roof replacement or repairs
Who will be responsive for waste removal and clean up? Confirm the responsibility of cleaning up the site will be left up to the contractor. Also, ensure they will haul away the old materials.
What happens if the weather gets bad? How will your roofing contractor protect your home or business from rain and thunderstorms after the project is underway.
Will the landscaping and gutters stay intact during the project? Roofing projects will require ladders and equipment up against your building. Will your gutters and landscape be protected or repaired when the job is complete?
Ensure you understand the entire project: “What exactly is the roofer going to do? Will they be doing spot repairs or replacing the whole roof? Will they be removing the old roof or covering it with the new roof? Make sure you understand the pros and cons of the solutions and that everything is detailed in your contract,” according to the Better Business Bureau.
Will your homeowners insurance pay for any repairs? Give your insurance agent a call and check to see if any of your roofing project is covered.
