Re-Roofing: What to Expect
Many times, a homeowner will look at a roof with binoculars and noticed that there are a few shingles missing. This is enough for them to call in a roofing specialist to give them an estimate on how much it will cost to fix the problem. Sadly, fixing the roof often means correcting problems underneath. In some cases, there are extra layers of roofing shingles that have rotted away under the top layer. Other expensive issues include rotten boards under the shingles. If a specialist sees these issues, they will considerably drive up the price.
A new roof saves utilities
A roof may cost a pretty penny, but many people forget that a new roof is going to give you part of your money back in utilities savings. This is true for the summertime as well as the winter. Having a new roof installed is also a good time for some homeowners to take extra utilities saving preventative measures. For this reason, when you have a new roof installed, talk to your roofer about adding extra insulation at the same time.
The truth about roof gutters and bids
It can be unsettling to look at your roofing bid and see that gutters are mentioned. This is especially true if you have replaced gutters in the past few years. If you have a warranty that you want to see through, do not fear. Most of the time, these gutters are being discussed by the roofing company because most homeowners replace them at the same time as the roof. Regardless, after you have your roof replaced, you can have the contractors put the old ones back in place.
