A roof replacement is perhaps one of the biggest home improvement projects you’ll ever have to take on. It involves no small amount of planning in terms of finding the right roofing company, choosing the right materials and even figuring out a suitable schedule for the job. You can make the whole process much easier by keeping an open line of communication between you and your contractor, however, it might not always be clear what questions you need to ask.
With decades of experience under their belt, our roofing specialists at Moss Roofing has compiled just a few of the most important questions you should always ask your roofer before getting a roof replacement.
Can I Stay at Home During the Replacement?
This question is one that’s often asked from any roofing contractor and the question can vary from one situation to another. If your roof replacement involves the entire home, it’s a good idea to leave your home for a few days. However, if the replacement is isolated to a small part of your home in a room that is not often used, staying in a hotel while the work is getting done might not be needed. Keep in mind, of course, that having other people in the house might cause unexpected problems during a replacement.
Can I Leave My Pets at Home?
This question comes as a corollary of the first one. As a general rule, our professionals advise that all pets be kept away from the construction work at all times. This is to avoid any delays and problems that might arise from their presence.
How Long Will It Take and How Much Will It Cost?
The time and money it takes for a residential or commercial roof installation are hinged on a number of factors such as your choice of materials, the number of people working on the project, and how well the weather cooperates. Generally speaking, roof replacements can take up to three days per every thousand square-footage of the roof.
Is It Possible to Lower Costs?
A reputable roofing company will always give you the materials that are 100% right for your needs based on your budget and there might not be too much room for any adjustment. It’s not a good idea to go with a company that gives price quotes that are suspiciously lower than the standard as this might mean they make sacrifices in quality.At Moss Roofing, our professionals are more than happy to help you with all your roof replacement needs from start to finish.
