How much will a new roof cost? It is a question we get all the time here at Schick Roofing. While it is a great question, it is important to look at the overall life cycle costs.
A roof with the lowest life cycle cost will be the most cost effective roof system.
While many people think the installation, the materials, labor, debris removal, and supplier transportation is the cost of the roof, it is just a portion of the overall life cycle cost.
The life cycle cost of a roof includes
Installation of the roof
Energy savings and warranty
Projected life span
Materials and installation
The materials you choose for your roof are important. It can make the difference in your roof lasting 10 years or over 20 years. If you have to make several repairs or pay more in energy costs. Quality of the installation also comes into play. Choosing a subpar company to replace your roof can end up costing you more in the long run.
Central Florida weather seriously affects your roof. From intense heat, heavy rains, hurricanes, high winds, take a toll on asphalt shingles, tiles, and metal roofs.
Low quality shingles and poor installation means you will probably end up with blister, cracks, curling tiles and even leaks. Which means you end up with high repair costs.
While high quality shingles are designed to stand up to Florida’s extreme weather, even hurricanes.
Finding that balance
The overall costs of the roof is more than just installation, it balances the initial investment and the cost over its lifetime. Schick Roofing can help you find your balance.
