An extensive roof repair or full-on roof replacement service offers long-term benefits, such as increased comfort levels and lower energy bills. However, this can be quite a stressful chore if you’re not sure where to start. Fortunately, with a little planning you can look forward to a brand- new roof with minimal stress along the way.
Keep a project notebook with you. A dedicated notebook or file allows you to record everything related to the roof repair or replacement, from initial sketches and clippings to quotes, receipts and other pertinent information. Knowing you have a record of important details in one place eliminates the stress of having to hunt for project-related information when you need it.
Prepare an emergency fund. There are times when unforeseen changes to a roofing project occur even with plenty of preparation. Most times, these changes aren’t included in the original estimate, and will result in additional expenses. For example, rotting and other water-related damage to the roof deck can’t be detected until the shingles are off and the deck is exposed. Factoring in an emergency – around 10 to 20 percent of the estimated cost – helps minimize stress.
Hire an experienced roofing contractor. Hiring a roofing contractor who has years of experience and a positive attitude can alleviate the stress and discomfort involved with your roof replacement. Some of the things you need to take into consideration when looking for a roofer are proper licensing, insurance coverage and a good reputation.
