Roof repairs and replacements can take a toll on the monthly budget, which is why every cent you can save counts. Dynamic Roofing Concepts, Inc., a top commercial roofing contractor in the state, shares some money-saving tips below.
There eventually comes a point when it would make more sense financially to get a roof replacement. Of course, there’s no clear point of time when this becomes obvious, but you need to take a look at the extent of the damage, the age of your roof and the frequency of the repairs.
Large-scale roof damage would naturally require a replacement. But if your roof only suffered moderate damage and is already quite old, a roof replacement may be the better choice.
But beyond just the cost of the roof replacement, you also need to think about potential damage to other parts of your home. Older roofs are bound to suffer increasingly extensive damage as they near the end of their lifespan. And in the period before roof leaks are fixed, moisture-related damage can spread to other parts of your home.
If you do decide to get a roof replacement, make sure to buy roofing shingles that are rated for impact resistance. Apart from minimizing the risk of damage to other parts of your home, impact-rated shingles can help you get better insurance coverage. In fact, a lot of insurance companies provide incentives for homeowners to install shingles rated for impact resistance; the reasoning for the incentives is that they reduce the number of payouts related to roof repairs.
Besides, there is already a wider shift to shingles rated for impact resistance; state governments are increasingly requiring the installation of such shingles in weather-prone areas. Considering this practice is likely to be adopted by other states, it would be better to reap the benefits of a roof rated for impact resistance early on.
There’s no doubt that roof replacements are hefty investments, but instead of the cost, you need to focus on the return on investment (ROI). And to maximize the ROI, you need to hire a certified contractor.
