Getting a new roof for your home may sound like a stressful time, but if you’re prepared, it can be relatively simple and potentially even a pleasant experience! If you don’t know where to start, the team at Landmark Exteriors has some tips to guide you along the process.

Steps to help you plan for a new roof: 

  1. Know Your Budget 

It’s no secret that a roof replacement is a big investment, and knowing your financing options can help you choose the best roofing material and the right roofing contractor for your home. This is important to determine first, as it will help the rest of the process go more smoothly. 

  1. Determine What Type of Roofing Material is Right For Your Home

There are plenty of roofing materials to choose from for your roof replacement: You can go with the most popular and cheapest option of asphalt shingles or select a material that’s more unique and durable such as metal or cedar. Whatever you decide, be sure it meets your home’s needs and matches your budget. 

  1. Find a Roofing Contractor

Now it’s time to find the right team to handle the job. When looking for a roofing contractor, make sure you look for a company that has the experience, is well established in your community, and has reputable examples of past work. Don’t be shy about asking questions and getting quotes from multiple contractors; after all, this is an important investment. 

  1. Speak With Your Neighbors

Save yourself some potentially cranky neighbors approaching you with complaints by letting them know ahead of time about your roofing replacement. They will be very appreciative! Now, your neighbors have time to adjust their schedules and prepare themselves for the noise and interruptions that can certainly affect them as well.  

  1. Get Your Home Ready

When it’s almost time to have your roofing team come and get started on the roof replacement, take some time to get your home and property ready for construction. Outside your home, relocate your vehicles safely away and move grills, patio furniture, decorations, and more out of the work zone. Inside your home, remove your wall decorations as vibrations from the tools can knock them off and cover your attic belongings since dust and debris can fall from the roofers working.
