Replacing a roof can be quite a big deal, even if it might seem at first like any old home renovation project. Aside from the fact that it can take weeks to complete, depending on the size of the project and the complexity of the work involved – as well as the number of workers assigned to it – there’s also the issue that you’ll be investing a lot of time and money into the project, so you’ll definitely want to make sure your roof doesn’t leak or break a few days or weeks after it was newly installed.
Before even gathering the money you need for the replacement job, you have to make sure that a roof replacement is the only option. If there’s a chance your old roof can still be saved, you can also opt for the cheaper solution, and keep it. However, it’s important to follow your roofers’ advice on that, since keeping the old roof could backfire, especially during a powerful hail storm.
Talk to your local roofing contractor Lincoln NE is home to, about the time and the amount required for completing the project, as well as any complications that might arise – such as having to strip off two layers of old asphalt shingle roofing, if the newer one was installed on top of the older one. Make sure you also get a complete roof inspection beforehand, and that the results of the inspection as well as your roofing estimate will be provided in writing.
