Replacing your home’s old and worn out roof is easy on paper but difficult in execution, especially if you don’t plan ahead properly. Our roofing experts at Korrect General Contracting share an easy-to-follow guide to proper roof replacement.
Start by Calling a Contractor
While it’s tempting to do your upcoming roof replacement project on your own, it’s smarter to hire a professional roofing contractor like us. We have all the necessary equipment to ensure a safe replacement process and we can source higher quality residential roof replacement options that you can’t find at your local store.
Enlisting the aid of a contractor is also important so you can perform a more in-depth roof inspection. In older roofs that are way past their prime, the roof may require repair work before you actually replace it. Failure to repair these structural problems will result in a new roof with a reduced operating life span.
Budget With Repairs in Mind
Proper budgeting is important to the success of your roofing project and it should include the aforementioned repairs in mind. In cases where you budget before hiring a contractor, exceed your forecasted funds by about 10-20%. This should cover you in the event that your roof replacement may require emergency roof leak repair or if you need to replace other integral components of the roof such as the flashings.
Choose the Right Materials
The roof is the most expensive part of the home to replace, so it’s important to pick the best roofing option for your new investment. Keep in mind that when it comes to the roof, the cheapest may not be the best option. A cheap roof may, in fact, be cheap in performance, too.
At Korrect General Contracting, we offer high-quality roofs from GAF and Owens Corning®. Their products rank among the best in the industry and come with robust roofing warranties that protect your new investment for life.
