Sometimes, time and damages make roof repairs impossible. In some cases, the repairs needed cost more than replacing the roof.
At Enchanted Roofing in Albuquerque, our free estimates can help you decide whether you need a roof repair or replacement.
We realize that roof replacements can be expensive. That’s why we’re offering tips to help you save money on your next roof replacement.
Many of us avoid replacing our roofs unless it’s absolutely necessary. Unfortunately, waiting until a ceiling collapses could potentially cost you more in structural repairs than replacing your roof beforehand.
Also, consider energy savings. Replacing your roof with reflective materials can save you money in air conditioning costs. Also, replacing your roof with more durable materials can save you money on future repairs and replacements.
Watch for signs that your roof needs replacing:
Also, be on the lookout for granules collecting outside your home. This means your shingles are deteriorating.
Most buyers avoid purchasing homes that have extensive roof damage. No one wants to take on the additional costs for these repairs and replacements. A damaged roof can also undervalue your home, meaning you’ll lose money on your sale.
Consider replacing your roof before putting it on the market to maximize your home’s value.
A professional roof inspector assesses your roof’s condition. An inspection can tell you whether you need a replacement or repairs. This person can also estimate how much longer your roof can last before a replacement.
Even though it costs money to hire an inspector, a professional evaluation can save you money if you only need repairs versus a replacement.
After receiving the report from the inspector, evaluate which options save you money. Overall, it’s best to follow the inspector’s advice, especially if there’s considerable damage.
Don’t forget to evaluate long-term costs. If your roof needs constant repairs, investing in a new roof may cost you less in the long run.
If your roof was recently replaced, it might still be under warranty. Most roofs have a manufacturer’s warranty covering material costs. Many roofing companies also warranty their workmanship which covers labor costs.
If you don’t know when your roof was replaced, check your home’s closing paperwork for your roof’s warranty. If not present, contact the previous owner to see if they can provide that paperwork for you.
If your roof needs repairs or a replacement, a warranty may save you money on part or all of the costs.
If you carry homeowner’s insurance, see if the policy covers roof repairs and replacements. Most policies offer roof coverage for weather-related incidents. If your roof’s damage stems from neglect, your insurance probably won’t cover the costs.
It’s always a good idea to get estimates from several roofing companies. These estimates should also include the warranties offered for the materials and labor.
Along with gathering bids, also do some research into the companies you’re interested in. Make sure they are licensed, insured, and have been in business for several years. This ensures they follow legal practices, can cover the costs of accidents, and will be around for warranty work if needed.
Roofing is a seasonal business. Most companies are busier during the summer than in the winter. Roofing companies often discount their rates to encourage business during the winter months.
If your roof replacement can wait until winter, ask the company if they offer a winter discount. This may save you up to 10% or more on your replacement. It never hurts to ask.
It’s tempting to delay a roof replacement to build money to put towards the project. The issue with this tactic is that your roof may incur further damage. This additional damage may lead to additional costs.
