At some point, you will need to have your existing roof replaced. With a new one installed, you give your home renewed protection against the elements. However, if you are not careful, this major home improvement project can put you at risk of going over the budget. Certain factors such as the price of materials and labor can quickly add up to the total costs.
In today’s blog post, Genesis Roofing, your premier local roofing contractor, provides some helpful tips to keep your roof replacement budget on track.
Create an Outline
Residential roofing systems that have considerable mileage in terms of service life are good candidates for replacement. To establish an accurate budget, take into account your home’s structure, the roof’s pitch and size, the necessary permits to get the project going and the fees you’ll be paying your contractor. These are important in creating an outline for your project’s rough estimate.
Determine Your Needs and Finances
This is a vital step, especially when it is time to choose the roof replacement material. Today, you can have enough choices for such, from asphalt shingles, metal panels, to clay and concrete tiles. Go for your desired look and estimated budget when factoring in your roofing material selection.
Set Aside Contingencies
As much as we want to get home improvement projects moving according to plan, we can’t avoid roadblocks along the way. In a roofing project, the contractor can encounter unexpected issues that need to be prioritized before proceeding with the project proper. That said, be prepared. Inquire about unexpected circumstances and create an additional budget that is at least 10% of the total budget cost.
