NEW ROOF INSTALLATION
Replacing a roof or installing the first roof on a new home build
Whether you are experiencing the need for a new roof, or just plain excited to get one, it can be a very simple, manageable process.
GETTING A NEW ROOF
Whether the matter is an aging roof near expiration, or a new roof on a new building, getting a handsome top for your building is a necessary cost and process to keeping our homes snug and tight! It can be good to do some research, or find a trusted pro of course.
Roof replacement can mean tearing off old shingles down to the decking, and then inspecting that material for any leaks or damage, fixing that, and following up with a good barrier from the elements. There are lots of roofing materials to choose from in terms of look and cost, but even the most budget wary can find a product that is worth putting on the home.
One cost effective process is, if you only have one layer of shingles, to simply nail on a second layer right above it. This saves time and money! Though it’s only suggested to do two layers this way.
A new roof can last a long time – 3tab shingles can last up to 25 years and a metal roof can last 40-50 years though it does cost extra, a cost that can be negated considering that inflation will occur over those years making your purchase today much more valuable as the cost of roofing materials goes up over the years.
Whatever way you go, getting a pro inspection is the first step, then looking at the material options, or getting a match if you liked your old roof. Really that’s all you have to be concerned about, as the pros can handle the rest! Hiring a good local company-contractor has it’s perks, as it's a super labor intensive process compared to DIY which could span over weeks, bad weather, and risk of falling or not getting the job sealed up before rain comes your way. A bad rain storm leaking into open roofing can lead to tens of thousands of dollars in damage, best to be avoided with leak repair!
