There comes a time in every homeowner’s life where they realize it’s time to call a roofing contractor to come out and assess their home, create an estimate, and get hired for the job.
Depending on where you live and if the weather is cooperative or not, your roof will typically last anywhere between 20-50 years so of course, this phone call is not one that many plan for – but they should!
When should you call roofing contractors to come to your home?
If you’ve noticed your roof is starting to fall apart, shingles are missing, or you’re having leaks happen, it’s time to call and get estimates from roofing contractors.
Price of a roof
Part of owning a home is taking on the responsibility to keep that home up to date on all of its exterior and interior operational needs. The last thing you’d want is to be sitting on your couch, watching TV on a Friday night, and have to use an umbrella because your roof is leaking water all over the place. That means you must take care of your home so it can take care of you.
But, is getting a roofing estimate and needing a new roof expensive? That depends on what you need done and how large of a property you have. Price can only be determined after you’ve called a roofing company to come and give you one.
Will I need to vacate my home to get the roof done?
If you’ve been hesitant to get a new roof because of the fear of being removed from your home for a long length of time, rest assured that most homes can have a new roof put on while the homeowner is living in the home without a problem.
It’s rare that you’d need to leave while your home is being worked on but this is definitely something you should discuss with your roofing contractor so you have a complete timeline and outlook on how the project will be handled.
