A roof replacement is a costly procedure, so naturally you want to be sure you are spending your money with an honest, professional Orlando roofer. We know all the keys to installing a durable roof, while at the same time keeping the price within your budget. There is a lot to take into consideration when you are thinking about replacing your roof.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A ROOF REPLACEMENT
Price This is obviously going to be one of the biggest factors in your decision. Prices vary greatly depending on the size of your roof, your location, materials used, and how long the job takes. Some jobs can cost as little as $6000-$7000 for small, basic projects. On the opposite end though, if you have a large roof, and choose a high quality material, the price can quickly jump up into the tens of thousands of dollars very quickly.
As with price, this all varies based your specific home. Generally a new roof can be installed within a week, but there are factors to take into consideration. Factors such a weather, roof size, materials used, and men on a job can greatly affect how quickly or slowly your new roof is put into place.
The first day of your roof replacement, you can expect to have a dumpster show up in your driveway, to help keep the project cleaner. The first day or so will be removing the old roof. This can be quite noisy, so it’s probably a good idea to warn your neighbors of the construction that will be taking place. Once everything is removed, we will inspect the roof and install the new roofing system.
THINGS TO CONSIDER Roof pitch
One factor that people don’t normally take into consideration when estimating roof cost is different roof pitches. Roof pitch is just a fancy way of saying roof angle. Medium pitched roofs generally cost less because they are safer for roofers to work on, and make installation easier.
Size of your roof
Unless you are building a new home, this really isn’t something you have much control over. This does however, plays a huge roll in how much your new roof project will cost, and can have an impact on what roofing material you can afford. Its standard practice that roofing materials are priced and installed by the square foot, so the bigger the roof, the more expensive the materials will be.
There are a multitude of materials to choose from when getting a new roof. Each material has a different price range, as well as different advantages and disadvantages. The most common material used for roofs are asphalt shingles. These are the least expensive, yet moderately durable material used currently. If you have it in budget to get something a little more hefty, metal and slate roofs will last significantly longer than asphalt, but will also cost significantly more.
A roof replacement is quite the endeavor. It’s smart to consult with a professional roofer throughout the entire process to be sure you’re getting the most out of your time and money. If you think you are ready for a new roof, contact us today and set up a free estimate today for your home!
