Even the sturdiest roofs can be worn out by constant exposure to the elements, so a roof replacement will become inevitable at a certain point in your roof’s lifespan. However, before you start your roof replacement, you should ask these three questions to your roofers.
- How Long Will the Project Take?
The duration of roof replacement depends on many factors like weather and the size of your home. If you have your roof replaced during winter or the rainy months, the project could take longer than expected since the safety of the workers needs to be prioritized in case of inclement weather. Furthermore, certain roofing materials won’t function as intended if the roof was installed during adverse weather. The size of your home is also an important factor since larger roofs require more time to finish. As a reference, an average roof usually takes about one to three days of work.
- How Much Will the Replacement Cost?
Roofing companies have different pricing for their services, but you should check the average rates in your area to have a general idea. The cost of a new roof also depends on the warranties, the materials to be used and the design of the roof. Asphalt shingle roofs are the most common roofing choices as they are reliable and more affordable than other options. Stronger and more resilient roofing materials like slate and tile are also excellent choices, but they usually cost more.
- Can My Family Stay at Home During the Replacement?
A roof replacement project is disruptive, messy and noisy, so you’ll have to deal with a lot of noise and dust if you choose to stay at home. Most homeowners think that they can probably put up with the shaking and all the dust and dirt in the air, but we wouldn’t recommend it, especially if you have young children and pets. The best course of action would be to stay somewhere else during the project to prevent further disruption to your routines and comfort.
