Here’s Why It’s Important to Avoid “Cheap” in a Home Roofing Project

Replacing a roof is one of the most expensive home renovations you can take on. Although it might be more fun to spend that kind of money on a tropical vacation or a kitchen makeover, it’s critical to complete a home roofing project before leaks and deterioration have a chance to do serious damage.

You might be tempted to aim for rock bottom prices when it comes to your new roof, but there are several reasons why this is almost certain to cost you in the long run.

Home Roofing: More Than Just What’s on the Surface

Some roof remodeling companies offer deep discounts on home roofing, but their quotes don’t always include every part of the project. In other cases, they install the new roof directly on top of the old one, which can shave $1,000 or more off the total price.

However, the only way to determine if your home has sustained moisture damage is to do a full tear-off of the existing roof. Removing the old roof also allows your home roofing contractor to install a quality underlayment that gives your new roof the best foundation possible.

Avoid Future Worry

The most expensive roof you will buy is the one you have to purchase again… and again and again. If you go cheap, you can count on encountering problems.

Home roofing companies that offer cut-rate pricing also cut corners — and they get away with it because problems usually take a few years to develop. By the time a homeowner discovers an issue, any warranty on labor or installation has probably expired.

Pay More Now and Never Replace Your Roof Again

Rock bottom prices come at a steep cost, including the possibility of water damage and mold that can compromise structural integrity and cause serious health problems. The adage “you get what you pay for” is well-suited to something as important as home roofing.

While getting a good deal isn’t a bad thing, it’s always important to remember that when it comes to roofing, the contractor is as important as the product that they are using. Your contractor might advertise that they install the same product as a more expensive competitor, but that doesn’t mean you’re getting the same quality of work. Always be sure to do your research — if a prior customer is happy with your contractor three, five, or ten years down the line, you probably are in the clear.

By investing in a durable, high-quality roof installed by a well-regarded contractor now, you can rest easy knowing your roof will last a lifetime. Pay a little more today and reap the benefits of your investment not just tomorrow, but for as long as you own your home.
