What To Look For When Buying A New Roof

Is is time to replace or repair your roof?

One of the major investments in home improvement projects is buying a new roof. Therefore, it is good to know what to look for when getting a new roof.

First things first, put it high on your priority list to get as many estimates from roofing contractors in your Delaware community as possible. Whatever you decide, don’t settle on the cheapest offer, because it might actually cost you more money in the long run. Most importantly, look at a quality of material rather than a price tag.

Don’t hesitate to check out some consumer reviews and the reputation of the roofing contractors you are considering online. Look for a trustworthy contractor that is well respected in the community. It never hurts to get some quality work done and add an extra boost of curb appeal and energy-efficiency to your home.

Without no further ado, here are some suggestions to consider when replacing or repairing your home’s roof. 

What To Look For When Buying A New Roof

1) A craftsmanship warranty for a brand new roof. Once you get a new roof, make sure you get a guarantee it it will perform well for years to come. If your roofing contractor doesn’t back his work up, that’s the first RED FLAG you should take into consideration.

2) A roof ventilation solution. Whether you decide on an attic fan or go with a green roof vent, you need to make sure to keep hot air moving out of your attic. Otherwise, that same hot air paired with cold A/C air in your house will produce moisture. Next thing you know, there’s mold and weakened wood in your roof’s structure.

3) Improving your attic insulation or storage. Consider bundling services like insulation and plywood flooring for your attic while the roof is still open. It will be much more cost-efficient and stress-free in a long run.

4) Contrast between your roof’s shingle color and your exterior. Make your house pop by choosing multi-colored shingles. They will add that much needed depth into your home’s color scheme. Be sure not to match majority of the materials too closely. You don’t want to end up with a plain house with unnoticeable features.
