It’s easy to put off replacing your roof because you know it will be an expensive project, but use these 4 tips to save money on a roof replacement.
Get a professional roof inspection
With regular maintenance, we highly encourage you to keep an eye on your own roof for obvious damage. Missing or broken shingles can be easy to spot. But most homeowners don’t know how to determine when their roof needs to be replaced. With a professional roof inspection, you can know for sure if your roof just needs repairing or if it needs a full replacement.
Do your research
You don’t need to be trained as a professional roofer to gain a basic understanding of roof repairs and replacements. Doing a little research on your own to learn the basics of roofing will help you to feel more at ease when you choose a roofer to do that work for you.
Know what kind of roof you have and the measurements of it. That will help you calculate what the approximate cost might be. Thinking about changing to a new type of roofing material? Look into the roofing options that will best stand up to the weather in your area. In Northern Colorado, hail-resistant shingles are a great choice to stand up to the frequent storms.
Find a local company you trust
If you are looking into a roof replacement right after a big storm, avoid roof hail damage scams. There will always be roofers going door-to-door trying to charm you into believing they can fix your roof for an outstanding price. Always be wary of those roofers.
The low price of poor workmanship and materials is not going to give you your money’s worth.
Instead, find a local company with great reviews. Ask your friends and neighbors who has done their roofing work in the past and what their experience was. At Crazy Horse Roofing, we are very proud of our long list of happy customers and we would love to add you to our family of clients.
Understand Your Insurance
We know that insurance can be a headache. That’s why we deal with your insurance company for you at Crazy Horse Roofing. When you are trying to save money, it’s always best to have a solid understanding of your insurance policy.
What’s covered? What’s not? How can they help you after a storm? When is the best time to contact them?
Sometimes it’s not always best to contact your insurance company first if your roof has damage. It depends when and how they open a claim. Understanding your policy and how to get the most for your money out of it can really help you save when you are considering a roof replacement.
