If you are looking forward to having a new roof installed, ensure its success by avoiding common errors homeowners make during the replacement process. Here are a few things you can watch out for, according to roof repair and replacement expert, Bright Side Exteriors.
All home improvement projects need to start with a thorough inspection of your home. Stay away from contractors who do not take the time to visit your home before providing cost estimates. Replacing your roof also requires your input as a homeowner to ensure that you get your preferences realized. If any of them aren’t possible to work with, you need to make informed alternative choices instead.
Poor Quality Materials
When thinking about how much to spend on your roof, think beyond upfront costs and consider how much money you would need on repairs. Look at various alternatives that will not only make your home look better but have it remain well-protected for a long time too.
Never work with a contractor that refuses to guarantee their work and the products they recommend. When installing a GAF roof replacement for instance, Bright Side Exteriors is certified to offer the GAF Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty. This means our customers can expect coverage for material defects throughout the 50 years following their new roof installation. There will be a 25-year workmanship guarantee in place under Golden Pledge as well.
Choosing the Wrong Contractor
With so many DIY videos on the Internet these days, anyone can claim expertise in roof replacement without actually having the needed factory training to do the job right. Choose contractors wisely by doing ample research. Talk to other homeowners in your community and find out who they entrust their homes to the most.
