Setting a budget for your roof replacement project can be an overwhelming task. A roof replacement is a big investment with many different components to consider that will affect your overall budget. To ensure you set a realistic budget, follow these tips from ABM Services and Renovations, your new construction specialist:
Take Note of Every Detail
There are many factors that will determine your budget. These include the damage involved, the materials being used and the size of your home. Outline all your roofing costs and be sure that your contractor discusses each aspect of your project. During your consultation, ask them about any potential problems they think they might encounter during construction that could affect your budget.
Focus on Your Needs
Each roofing material has its own unique set of benefits that will affect performance, budget and aesthetics. Take the time to do your research. Learn about the short- and long-term costs of each roofing material so you can make a cost-efficient decision. Don’t hesitate to ask your contractor about which materials they’d recommend for your specific circumstances.
As one of the most trusted roofers in the area, ABM Services and Renovations often recommends asphalt shingles to homeowners. They come in a wide array of colors, thicknesses and profiles to complement any architectural style. Thanks to our GAF Master Elite® status, we can provide you with some of the best products in the industry.
Set a Contingency Budget
Your contractor can only assess the overall condition of your roofing system after taking down the existing shingles or tiles. Maybe there’s not enough flashing, or there might be rotten wood that’s weakening the roof deck and beams. These problems can add to your labor and material costs, so set aside at least 20% of your budget for contingencies.
