1. What will be the cost of getting a new roof?
The cost of getting a new roof varies depending on the location and size of the building, materials selected, the roofing contractor, local labor costs and so on. In order to get an idea about the installation cost of a new roof, make sure to get estimates from different roof contractors. However, you must make your choice based on the excellence of craftsmanship and the quality of the materials.
2. How to determine the annual roof maintenance expenses?
You can get an estimate of your annual roof maintenance cost by a simple equation. You need to ask your roofing contractor about the expense of your roof per year and add the cost of the labor and roofing materials to the life expectancy of your roof system. This will provide you with an estimate of the annual cost of your roof maintenance.
3. Is a DIY approach recommended when installing a new roof?
Any kind of roofing-related work is best left for the professionals. The problem with DIY roof installation is that you may not have access to the right equipment and tools. Also, a lack of experience and expertise in roof installation is going to lead to more harm than good. If you fail to install your new roof properly, you will have to re-do the entire process from scratch and that might cost you more than a certified contractor completing the task at the very first. Since the roof is an important part of the structure of any building, you must not take it lightly.
The above-mentioned FAQs should get you started on your new roof installation project. However, do not proceed with a new roof installation without consulting a contractor first.
