Getting a new roof isn’t like deciding what’s for dinner tonight (although sometimes it feels like it takes just as much thought).
Here’s how to get started:
Reach out to several roofing contractors for assessments and estimates. This is your chance to shop around, compare prices, and find the best option for your budget.
Roofing isn’t a one-size-fits-all deal. You’ve got options like asphalt shingles, metal, or even stylish tile. Your choice could affect the timing and cost of the installation.
Figure out how you’ll fund your roof replacement – savings, a home equity loan, or another method. Having a financial plan is crucial to make it all happen.
Choose a Reputable Contractor
This isn’t the time to play contractor roulette. Research and select a roofing contractor with a stellar reputation, all the right licenses, and insurance. You want someone who can work with your timeline.
Plan for Permits
Depending on your location and the scope of your project, you might need permits. Don’t forget to factor in the time it takes to obtain them into your schedule.
