Replacing your roof is one of the most expensive home improvement ventures you’ll ever do, so you need to prepare your budget carefully. Fortunately, A-TEX Roofing and Remodeling has a few pointers you need to remember when you’re planning your budget for any residential roof replacement.
Materials Affect Budget
Residential roofing can be made of various materials, such as wood, asphalt shingles, and metal. As a general rule, higher-rated roof materials cost more, so keep this in mind when you’re budgeting your project. But then again, don’t base your choice on cost alone, you get what you pay for, after all.
For a durable roofing material but affordable at the same time, our roofing company suggests picking asphalt shingles. It has respectable physical strength and elemental durability and can last as long as 25 years or more with proper care and maintenance.
Include The Unexpected in Your Budget
In older roofs that need replacement, sometimes it will require additional repair work before you can actually fit the new roof. This unexpected cost can really surprise you if you’re unprepared, especially if you need to do extensive repair work. That’s why we recommend giving yourself a bit of an allowance when you’re budgeting for your roof replacement project.
Always Hire a Professional
Hiring a professional and licensed roof contractor is better than doing it on your own. You’re paying for their years of experienced workmanship. Plus, they can source higher quality materials at lower prices. This is why when you work with us for your roof replacement, you not only get a roofing system installed correctly, you get the best materials at a lower price than you would have if you bought them yourself.
