A roof replacement is a major home improvement project, so it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Fortunately, there are several ways you can ensure a simple and hassle-free project for your home. Krier’s Construction, the trusted general contractor, explains four of those ways.
Prepare for the Unexpected – As an experienced roofing contractor, we recommend giving your replacement budget some extra allowance in case your roofing system needs repairs before the actual replacement takes place. In our experience, especially in older homes, the structure of the roof is damaged and needs repair before the roofing itself can be replaced.
Get Your Paperwork Ready – You need to make sure you have all the necessary working permits for your roofing project. As one of the top roofers in our area, Krier’s Construction can help you with this step because we’ve helped countless homeowners with their roof replacement projects.
Choose Your Roofing Materials Carefully – We suggest researching the benefits of possible roofing materials before you decide. Asphalt remains a popular choice for many homes since asphalt shingles are affordable and have respectable physical strength and durability. They are easy to install, and with proper care, can last for at least 20 years. Asphalt shingles also have a low life cycle cost, meaning it costs less to own them for their entire service life compared with other roofing materials.
Do Not Replace Your Roof Yourself – While many homeowners are tempted to replace their roof on their own, it’s better to just hire a roofing company for your project. Roof replacement is simply too risky and complicated. Additionally, a professional landscaping and roofing company like us has access to higher quality materials at better prices.
