Tips That Can Help You With Your Roof Renovation

Published on December 14th, 2015

There aren’t many things in life that are better than getting a nice, new roof over your head. You want your new roof to be able to function at its optimum ability and you want to ensure that it looks great and lasts for years and years to come.

There are some things you can do, that can help you to make the best of your roofing renovation, so if you didn’t have a proper idea of what to do, we’ll enlighten you.

  • Consider the appearance of your roof. Did you know that the average roof makes up about 40% of your home’s exterior? That’s why you want it to look good. Remember that looks and style make a difference.
  • Take a peek at your roof. You can do that from afar, with the help of binoculars. Look for signs of missing, curling or cracking shingles and other signs on the exterior. Look for water stains and mold on the interior.
  • Don’t be shy to ask us questions. We’re qualified roofing contractors and that’s what we’re there for.
  • Contact your local municipal building department and they can give you all the necessary information you need for renovating your roof.
  • Use digital imagery with your contractor to take a picture of your home and show you how your home would look with various roofing materials.
  • Draw up a proposal with us, your roofing contractor, to include the specific details necessary for the process.
  • Make sure that you coat your roof with the necessary coating to keep it in the best condition possible, to help it endure the various seasons.
  • Take a look at all the alternatives available to you. You may like a certain type of look for your roofing, but you may not be able to afford the material. That shouldn’t stop you from getting the look you desire. You can get an alternative material to mimic your desired look.
  • The national Roofing Contractors Association recommends that you have a “minimum of 1 square foot of free vent area for each 150 square feet of attic floor.” Pay attention to your ventilation.
  • Don’t be skimpy on the cost of your roof. Compare the cost of your new roof to its life expectancy, so you’ll know it’s worth.
