Proper planning and preparation are some of the keys to ensure a smooth-sailing roof replacement project. To achieve this, it pays to know the mistakes you should avoid from the start. Here are some of them:
Not Familiarizing Yourself With Your Contractor
Roof replacement is a complicated project that involves a significant investment, that’s why it’s important to get to know your contractor. Check if their license and insurance are valid, and learn about the manufacturer certifications they carry. These will offer protection from any liability in case accidents happen. You can also contact the references provided by the contractor to ask about their experience.
Choosing Price Over Quality
If you’re going to compromise the quality of a roof for a more affordable price, then you’re likely to put your home’s protection at risk. This can end up costing you more later on due to premature damage. That’s why when it comes to choosing materials for roof repair and replacement, we always recommend durable, cost-effective products from trusted brands like GAF.
Not Signing a Contract
Roof replacement projects should always involve a contract. Not signing one could end up in serious issues that can’t be legally fixed. A contract will protect you in case the outcome doesn’t meet the expectations that were agreed upon. It will also prevent any misunderstanding throughout the process as it indicates the terms of the agreement that benefit you and your contractor.
