Important Things to Learn Before a Roof Replacement

Similar to other home improvement projects, roof replacement requires you to plan ahead. This allows you to prepare your home, manage your finances and anticipate slight or massive changes. West Side Roofing, one of the leading roofing contractors in the area, discusses things you need to know before starting the construction.

Important Things to Learn Before a Roof Replacement

Work With the Right Roofer

Why entrust your roofing project to amateurs when you can work with the pros? It makes perfect sense to hire a local contractor that carries the proper credentials. This way, you can avoid the costly consequences of a botched installation or repair. More importantly, you're assured that your roofing project will be finished on time.

Remove Old Roofing Materials

In some cases, your roofer will suggest installing the new roofing materials over the existing ones. This, however, can cause some structural concerns. While it can help you save a few bucks, it means your roofers can't inspect and repair the decking and flashing underneath. These are important components of the overall system you should not overlook. It's best to allow your roofing contractor to tear off the old shingles to avoid further issues.

Consider the Quality of Roofing Products

You can't disregard the costs of a roof replacement project, but that doesn't mean you should focus on it entirely. Assessing the quality of the roofing materials matters more than the expenses. Investing in high-quality roofing system ensures long-lasting performance and all-year-round protection.

Residential roof tear-off and cleanup A roof tear off is one of the biggest residential service we offer home and condo owners. If we find that your roof only has one layer of shingle down, were going to recommend an entire tear-off. A complete tear-off can get messy. When it comes time to remove your roof, there is typically a ton of nails, a bunch of debris from the shingles - its the biggest part of the job.
