Planning a roof renovation project can be overwhelming. Whether it’s a simple roof repair or a full replacement, it can be an expensive process if not planned well, and also a waste of time. If you want to plan your project properly, we’re sharing some of the biggest mistakes you should avoid.
1. Price Over Quality
When it comes to choosing the materials for your roofing replacement project, don’t think that a better price means better quality. If you’re going to sacrifice quality for a better and lower price, then you’re already risking a poor-quality roof to protect your roof. This will definitely end up costing you more later on, in premature damage, water damage and a weakened internal structure in your roof.
2. Not Choosing a Trusted Roofing Contractor
Roofing contractors may be nurmerous, but only a few are true and trusted professionals. Hiring any seemingly competent roofer may be less of a hassle during the planning stages, but if you don’t take the time to check out the roofer’s reputation and experience, then you may end up with a shoddy roofing system. It’s much better to hire a roofing contractor who knows the local area and is actually trusted by the community, just like our team at Barnett Roofing.
3. Not Putting an Estimate on Paper
It’s wise to get a written estimate of what it will cost to repair your roof. When a roofer does the inspection and gives an estimate, make sure to get this in writing so that you have physical proof that it was agreed by both parties. This will avoid any costs that will bloat or inflate later on during the renovation process, which can break your budget.
4. Not Signing a Contract
This is a serious mistake to make, since it will surely cause issues later on, during and after the renovation process. A contract ensures a legal obligation that can stand up in court if the outcome does not meet the expectations that were agreed upon. To avoid any miscommunication and misunderstandings, negotiate the terms of agreement that benefits both parties and get it signed with a contract.
