Every homeowner understands the importance of their roofing system. However, as time passes, you’ll eventually have to replace your old roof. A roof replacement project is no easy task, and it could be daunting, especially if it’s your first time experiencing this. As such, you need to know what questions you should ask your roofer to educate yourself on the project you’re about to undertake.
Here are four practical questions you should ask your roofing contractor before starting your roof replacement project.
1. Do I Have to Stay Home During the Project?
The straight answer is no. For your own safety, it’s better to vacate your home during the duration of the project. You won’t be able to carry out daily tasks properly due to the noise and dust present. It’ll be hard to move around with all of the contractor’s equipment, and it’ll be difficult to focus on your work with the noise.
2. How Can I Save on Replacement Costs?
If your area is prone to severe weather damage, and you have an insurance policy to your name, you could take advantage of a significant discount on your residential roofing repair or replacement project. If your roof still has an existing warranty, you can have a portion of your roof repaired. It’s also a great idea to schedule your roof replacement project during late winter or spring when roofing companies give the highest discounts. However, this won’t apply for all companies since you have to factor in when there’s little demand for their services in your city.
3. How Long Does a Roof Replacement Project Last?
It could vary depending on the scale of your project and other factors. Will you only replace a few sections of your roof? Does it rain often in your area? How big is your home? Are you tackling a full roof replacement? In general, a 1,000 to 2,000 square foot home can take anywhere from 1 to 3 days to fully complete.
4. How Much Does an Average Roof Replacement Cost?
The average roof replacement project costs around $6,000. A top-spec roof replacement costs about $30,000 while a budget replacement costs around $1,200.
