Your roof plays an integral role in your property’s structural integrity, energy efficiency, and security, so it’s not the place to skimp.
It’s imperative to budget for your roof replacement properly to avoid overspending. If it is your first-time tackling this project, heed WestPro’s practical pieces of advice.
Outline All Costs
Do not make the mistake of focusing solely on the roofing materials themselves. Roofing components may account for the majority of your budget, you shold allot enough funds for labor and permits as well.
Material and installation costs will vary. Compare not only overall estimates, but also your product options to see which deal offers the most value for your money.
Get a Detailed Estimate
Experienced residential and commercial roofers, including WestPro, would attest that a good estimate is a detailed one. Allow no allowances, so you will not wind up spending way higher than you initially expected.
Have a Buffer for Contingencies
Ideally, you should allocate an extra 20% of the estimated job cost for contingencies. This surplus will be used to cover any unanticipated additional work necessary to complete the job.
Sometimes, change orders are inevitable. A veteran roofer can often predict and prevent hidden challenges, but it’s impossible to know everything that might come up when we remove the old roof.
Finalize and Stick to the Plan
Change orders happen, and are usually initiated by the homeowner. To avoid going over budget, plan in advance and stick to the plan.
