Preparing for a Roof Replacement

A roof replacement is an important investment – and an expensive one, therefore you have to make some preparations. First of all, it is important to keep in mind that the roofing specialists are most busy at the end of the summer and in autumn, so scheduling the best Centennial roofing company for roof replacement by the end of winter or in early spring can help you save some money and time, because construction prices are typically lower and operations may take less time.

Tips to avoid being surprised by the costs and have your budget ready for the roof replacement

·        Do not wait until the last minute

If your roof is 25-30 years old already and it is made from asphalt shingles or other common roofing materials (there are also materials with warranties of 50 years+!), consider replacing it. As the total replacement of a roof can be costly, the best thing would be to set aside a budget for your project, a few years earlier than the expiration date of the roof, and save a small amount of money each month. This way, you avoid the financial burden.

·        Also prepare a budget for regular inspections and repairs

It is ideal to pay attention to small things rather than to face big problems. Through regular inspections and maintenance operations, you will prolong the life of your roof and you will have to take less money from your pocket for repairs.

A water leak is a major problem, no matter how seemingly insignificant it looks like, because not only it infiltrates and sometimes wets the ceiling but it may also affect the entire structure of the house. So, repairing small problems identified during the periodic inspection must be a constant priority, because the roof protects the entire house.

How do you identify a roof leak? How do you deal with it? These questions need answers, especially for first time homeowners who must learn what to do each time they face such a problem.

Investigating the leak:

·        Examine the roof on the outside and the inside, look for broken materials, moisture and discolorations

·        Cracked or peeling paint is another sign that indicates the existence of a roof leak

·        Check the areas around ventilation holes, pipes, chimneys

·        Make sure there are no missing or curled tiles

For repairs, always contact local licensed Centennial roofing companies.
