When performing a new roof installation on your home, there are some important considerations to make before beginning the job. NuHome Exteriors knows that each home is different, and each homeowner has different needs and expectations, which is why we’ve collected some key tips for you here.
Below you’ll find some of the top things consider before beginning your new roof installation!
- You May Be Able to Install Shingles on Your Existing Roof
Although tearing away your old roof and installing a new one is often recommended, it might not always be necessary. In some cases, you can simply add a new layer of shingles to your existing roof without tearing away the old ones from the roof deck. However, have your roof inspected first just to be sure.
- Choose the Right Roofing Material
There are a wealth of roofing materials out there, each with their own benefits and drawbacks. One style or type might go better with your roof, so make sure to consider all of the materials at your disposal, such as asphalt shingles, wood or slate shingles, tile, metal, and others.
- Choose the Best Roofing Contractor
Selecting a roofing contractor that is upfront on all of their services is key. Go with a company that can give you a detailed parts-and-labor breakdown before any work begins, as well as a contractor that’s both licensed and insured.
- Get a Clear Timeline Communicated to You
Your new roof installation shouldn’t take weeks and weeks; if it does, that’s a red flag. Get any potential roofing company to discuss with you the timeline for the completion of your roofing project. It shouldn’t be more than a few days or a long weekend at most.
- Cleaning Up After the Installation
One of the last things that is nonetheless important is the cleanup after your new roof installation is complete. Discuss with your roofing contractor to make sure that your property is thoroughly cleaned and there are no nails, or other materials lingering about that could create a hazard.
