You and your significant other have decided to replace the roof. Now comes a flood of other considerations. What about those old gutters, fascia, soffit, and flashing?
Getting your gutter replaced and adding gutter guards could save you the price of replacement over time since you won’t have to hire someone to get all those leaves out every year. Likewise, doing this as part of the roofing job will make it that much cheaper than doing it as a separate project.
Which Roofing Material Will You Use?
It used to be you only had a few choices when it came to replacing your roof. Many “handyman” operations in the old days would charge you a cut-rate to lay another layer of shingles on top of what’s there and call it good. This procedure is not a good idea as it often causes roof support problems because of the additional weight.
Then, when there were problems, they couldn’t be found. No one bothered asking if they were licensed or even checking their credential with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Yes, we at Roof-to-Deck are proud of our BBB “A” rating & accreditation, and 25 years of service to Twin City homeowners.
Now, you have a choice of light-weight alternatives that will complement your home’s design and last for years. Some materials, like slate, clay tile, and metal, will outlive the homeowner. There are also synthetic, composite, cedar shakes, rubber, and many others. Ask a Roof-to-Deck technician about recommendations and lifespans.
Selecting a Contractor
Many will decide to go with a national roofing company. However, that is not a wise choice because, in all likelihood, you will pay as much 50 percent more for their name. What’s more, when you choose a local roofer, if there is a problem, they will fix it right away, often the same day.
