Top Tips on Preparing Your Roof Replacement BudgetSep 29, 2017
A well-planned budget is key to keeping a roof replacement project on track. You’ve probably heard stories about homeowners who couldn’t have their roof installation completed because of funding issues. The good news is, as long as you have a well-prepared roofing budget and are sticking to the plan, your new roof will be completed within your allotted funds. Rogers Roofing shares tips on preparing your roofing budget.
Roofs that are about 15 to 20 years old are typically halfway through their life spans. At around this time, you should start planning for roof replacement – basically a continuity plan for your home. Starting your planning as early as possible is especially helpful, not to mention easier on your monthly budget, if you’re going to save for your new roof. If that doesn’t happen, we offer affordable financing options backed by our preferred lenders EnerBank and GE Money.
Consider the Materials
If you’re considering switching to a different roofing material, take the time to research their pros and cons. Your choice of material can affect the overall cost. Also, consider that your existing roof deck may have to be modified or outright replaced if you choose heavier material like slate or tile. If you’re in doubt, you can set an appointment with our expert consultants, and they’ll help you find the right options that fit both your budget and requirements.
Prepare an Emergency Budget
A rule of thumb on roof replacement (and home improvement projects in general) is to have an emergency budget on hand. This covers incidentals and other unforeseen costs, such as roof deck repairs. Up to 20% of the quoted price should cover such emergency expenses.
Hire a Reliable Contractor
Choose a roofing contractor who has the experience and know-how to ensure that the roof replacement budget is properly utilized, without cutting corners or otherwise compromising the project expenses.
