When it comes to roof replacement, the choice of roofing material and the service are the biggest factors that affect its final price. However, several others don’t just influence costs but also dictate the overall quality of the work roofing pros put in this major home improvement. Here are some of the factors you may not be aware of.
The Roof’s Size and Area
No two roofs are the same, especially when it comes to size and total area. Size is important when it comes to making sure it works, as well as when computing for replacement. Roofs can either be too small for residential properties or too big that they push far past the walls. In others, roofs extend toward an outdoor living space. Indeed, you can incur a higher cost if your roof has a bigger size and area.
The Roof’s Pitch
The angle of the roof plane also influences the cost of roof replacement. Working on a steep roof has its dangers, which is why more staging and labor are required for the roofers to properly maneuver on it. Flat roofs, on the other hand, are less expensive, if you compute per square foot.
The Need for Permits
Whether it is a roof repair or a replacement, obtaining a permit for the project is imperative. After all, it helps ensure your roof is built up to code and safety standards. You also have proof that your project has a proper permit, especially if you put your home up for sale in the future.
The Roof Damage
Roof replacement often involves removing the asphalt shingle or metal panel covering and replacing it with better material. However, the project costs may differ if the roofers find pre-existing issues within the roofing system, including signs of water damage on the roof decking.
