Roof replacement is a crucial project you need to plan and prepare for. Regardless of the material of your roof, it will deteriorate over time due to age or extreme weather conditions. When the time has finally come for a roof repair or replacement, make sure to discuss these questions with your roofing contractor.
“How Long Will the Roof Replacement Take?”
The length of your project is determined by several factors, including the size of your home. Aside from that, additional repairs may be needed before the roofers can proceed with the installation of the new roof. Certain materials may take longer to install than others. Furthermore, your contractor may also need to replace soffits, fascia and gutters. For an average-sized home, a roof replacement typically takes one to three days to finish.
“How Much Will the Roof Replacement Cost?”
Keep in mind that costs vary depending on a variety of factors. Discuss with your roofer the quality of the materials they will use, the condition of your roofing system, the entire process from installation to cleanup, and any additional expenses. Ask for a detailed breakdown of the costs and make sure everything is in writing.
“Should I Stay in the House During the Project?”
This is ultimately your choice, but your roofing contractor may also advise you to leave your home while they’re working. Roof replacement creates a lot of dust, mess and noise. The banging sounds can distract you from your tasks.
But if you do decide to stay home, make sure you don’t get in the way of the workers. Although safety measures will be in place, it’s still best to avoid the areas where they are working. This is to prevent accidents from falling debris or other objects.
