Several key factors go into determining the cost of your new roof. They include the brand and type of product you use, as well as the grade of the roofing for your location and environmental factors such as living near the coast.
The experience, quality, and professionalism of your roofing company also play a factor. Getting a new roof is a reasonably sized investment so it is important you are getting the very best when considering your roofing quote.
Don't be fooled by roofing contractors that take advantage of homeowners by overcharging for unnecessary work or by taking shortcuts in actual work done and the quality of the roofing materials used.
Ensure you get a detailed written quote that you fully understand so you can compare apples with apples. Don’t get caught out with dodgy roofing contractors pricing low to get the job and then stinging you with extra charges.
Getting a new roof is something you should only have to do every 20 to 25 or so years, the last thing you want is having to get it replaced early due to poor workmanship or even worse case scenario... being up for significant costs due to damage caused by leaks to the interior of your house.
It’s important to keep in mind that price should only be one factor you consider when choosing a contractor for a roof replacement. Quality of materials and highly skilled workmanship are just as important since your roof system will only be as good as the contractors who install it.
Always insist on a contractor who is dedicated to providing quality work and has a reference list of satisfied customers that can vouch for their level of workmanship.
