5 Steps to Achieving the Roof Replacement of Your Dreams

Share

Roof replacement is a once-in-a-lifetime project for many homeowners, so it only makes sense for you to get it right the first time around. It even makes more sense to go for the roofing that looks exactly as you want it. DryTech Roofing Company shares some planning tips that will help you get the roof of your dreams.

Roof Replacement

  1. Have a clear vision – It helps if you can show what you want through sketches or take inspiration from magazine clippings and photos from the Internet. A clear vision saves you time on planning, keeps the entire project on track, and helps you make quick decisions during critical times. We recommend centralizing everything to your project in a dedicated project notebook.

  2. Choose the right roof system – Take the project as an opportunity to upgrade your roof. Not all roofing systems are the same, and you can have a much more efficient roof by choosing a complete system over individual parts. Manufacturers such as GAF do more than just provide roofing supplies to roofing companies like us. They also have complete systems that are designed to provide a holistic roofing solution, with features like ventilating ridge caps and wind-resistant starter strip shingles.

  3. Prepare the budget – Like any other home improvement project, you should have sufficient funding for your roof replacement. There are several factors that affect the cost, such as materials as well as roof size and style. At DryTech Roofing, we offer free consultations that include a full roof inspection and a written quotation, which should give you an idea of the actual cost. Your total budget should also include emergency funds.

  4. Find the right roofer – Take consultation as an opportunity to ask the contractor for references and verifiable license information. Manufacturer certifications are another indicator of a legitimate contractor. For instance, our designation as a GAF Master Elite™ contractor means we fully comply with all state requirements, including licensing and insurance.

  5. Plan the installation schedule – Roof replacement is ideally done during months with a warm weather condition. You need to work with your roofing company to set a schedule that will work for you and them at the same time.
