All homeowners need a roof replacement at some point in time. Roof replacement is a very large project and can be costly and time-consuming. However, hiring professionals and having realistic expectations can make the project a success. Here are some factors to keep in mind during a roof replacement project:
Once you hire a roofing contractor, they will visit your property to inspect the current roof, take measurements and inspect for any visible damage during the estimation phase. Generally, the estimate includes a breakdown of all the initial charges, pictures of problematic areas and an estimated start and completion date.
Roof Replacement Permit
An inspection will occur once the roof is installed to determine if the new roof complies with the building codes for your area.
Unforeseen Roof Repairs
Sometimes damage is found underneath the current roofing material. In such cases, the original plan may require alteration. The initial inspection does not detect these kinds of problems because the existing roofing material must be removed first.
Roof replacement can be costly and if hidden damage is discovered, the costs can increase. Here are some examples of hidden damage to the roof that may increase your costs:
- Rotten wood
- Leaking around the chimney or roof vents
- Insufficient flashing
