Having your roof replaced can be a huge undertaking, which is why you must make sure that your chosen contractor has the experience and expertise to complete the project to your satisfaction. Before the actual work begins, you should ask them any questions you might have. That way, you can help prevent issues from arising while the project is underway. Here are four questions to ask your roofer:
1. “Do I need to move out during the project?” Roof replacement is inconvenient as it usually involves a lot of mess and noise. Staying on site while the work is being done will test your patience and resilience, but in the end, it comes down to your personal preference and your family’s needs. If you have little children or pets, it’s a good idea to leave them with a friend or relative while the job is being done. If you work from home, it might be a good idea to stay away while the roofing work is completed.
2. “How much will the project cost?” Roof replacement costs will vary depending on several aspects, including material quality, current condition of the roofing structure, installation technique (roof-over vs. complete tear-off), and other fees such as dumpster rental. Your residential roofing contractor should provide you with a precise and accurate estimate, and the prices should be clearly stated in the contract.
3. “How can I save on replacement costs?” If you live in a storm-prone location and have insurance, you may be eligible for a substantial discount on your residential roof replacement. If your roof is still under warranty, you could have a section fixed. Plan your roof replacement project for late winter or early spring when roofing contractors provide the best deals. This won’t apply to all companies as you must consider the demand for their services in your city.
4. “How long does it take to complete a roof replacement project?” It will vary depending on the scope of your project. Will you merely replace a couple of your roof’s sections? Does it usually rain in your area? What is the size of your house? Are you planning to replace your entire roof? A 1,000- to 2,000-square-foot home might take anything from one to three days to finish. Weather and other unforeseen delays can impact the time line, so be sure to plan accordingly with your roofer.
