How to Make Your Roof Project a Good InvestmentBy Stacy Mellete
In the first part of this blog, we talked about how replacing your old roofs can provide you with more benefits than you think. In this blog, we will now be giving you some tips for ensuring your roof will be the best home investment you’re going to make.
So if you’re thinking of replacing your roof, Affordable Roofing Systems, local experts in residential roof replacement and repairs in Tampa FL and the surrounding areas, offers these tips:
Functionality – More than anything else, your roof is your first line of defense against the sun, rain, hail, and other elements. That’s why when choosing a roofing product, make sure that you choose the one with the top-rated performance. Roofing shingles are tested to meet industry codes and standards for features such as wind resistance, algae resistance, and general performance. Base your decisions on what will work well with the weather conditions where you live and it’ll ensure your roof’s long life performance.
Be systematic – Choosing a complete, cohesive system will surely make a difference in your roof’s performance. This means that you should not mix and match different roofing product lines; use a complete system instead.
Aesthetics – Aside from durability and longevity, one important aspect you have to look closely into is the appearance of your roof and how it will work with your home’s overall design. The roof will play a major role in enhancing your home’s appearance as well as its value.
Hiring the right contractor – Replacing your roof is a big investment and should only be done by a professional. Make sure that the roofer you’re going to hire is licensed and insured. Ask the contractor how long they’ve been in business and if they have certifications from leading manufacturers like GAF and Tamko. You can also check out the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List to get reviews and comments from actual customers of the contractor.
