Getting a new roof can save you from a lot of trouble, especially leaks. At the same time, you can give your home a new look and improve its curb appeal. With the right information and adequate research, you can find the right type of shingle roof that will last you for years. Here are three things that you should know before jumping in on that roofing project.
Visually inspect your shingles. Note the material they’re made of. If you are planning on a new roof, you’ll need to consider if you want to replace in kind or buy a new type entirely. For example, a metal roof is now almost as popular as the ubiquitous asphalt shingle. Metal roofing is highly energy-efficient and resistant to the elements.
Do the paperwork first and make sure you’ve got everything you need. In addition to construction permits, consider getting a warranty for your roof. Most contractors offer different kinds that feature varying advantages for repair and replacement. As a GAF Master Elite® contractor, we offer GAF’s full line of industry-leading warranties, including the Golden Pledge® Warranty that covers 50 years on material defects and 25 years on workmanship errors.
Whether you get wood or tile roofing, the most important thing to remember is longevity. By conducting frequent inspections and having a regular preventive maintenance schedule, you can keep your roof in peak condition. This is because inspections detect damage early, allowing you to resolve these issues before they cause long-term problems.
