Your roof is a pretty big deal and replacing it will take some careful planning. Unfortunately, many homeowners still make the mistake of not giving a roof replacement project enough thought and end up regretting it. In today’s post, your good friends over at Chase Roofing LLC shares the three most common roof planning mistakes people tend to make and how to avoid them.
Mistake #1: Focusing Too Much
While the cost of your roof is indeed one of the most important considerations, it is not the only one. Do not make the mistake of skimping on quality just for the sake of getting a lower price. As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. This is definitely true for roofing.
Mistake #2: Not Choosing Your Roofer Carefully
For something as important as your roof, you want to work with somebody who has years of experience under their belt. After all, your roof will only be as good as the person who installed it. Ask your friends and family for recommendations and be sure to read reviews and check out your potential roofer’s previous work to make sure that you hire a roofer that will be a good fit for you.
Mistake #3: Skipping a Written Estimate
Another error that homeowners tend to make when planning for a new roof is not insisting on a written estimate. Many homeowners will simply take their roofer’s verbal estimate during the initial inspection. This is a big no-no. Before hiring a roofing contractor, be sure that you get everything in writing so that you are not surprised by “extras” and “add-ons” later on.
