Planning your roof replacement project is a must. It allows you to look at the job several steps ahead and anticipate any issues that may come along the way. This stage of your project also offers a good opportunity to avoid errors that can cause hassle eventually.
In this article, residential roofing company Affordable Roofing Systems lists some common mistakes that you should avoid when planning roof replacement.
Failing to Request a Written Estimate
Make sure to get a written estimate from your contractor. This will protect you and serve as proof in case they inflate the final cost of your project. Additionally, ensure that your contractor comes over to your home and inspects your roof before giving you an estimate.
Not Signing a Contract
You can get yourself in trouble if you fail to sign a contract with your roofer for roof repairs or any roofing job you need them to do. Since a contract ensures their legal obligation and commitment to you, you can use this document in a court of law in the event you find yourself displeased with the result of their service. A contract can also help avoid ambiguity, miscommunication and misunderstanding.
Choosing the Lowest Price Without Carefully Considering Other Options
By all means, set a budget for your roofing project. But make sure that it’s a reasonable amount that can realistically cover the expenses. Don’t choose the lowest price just because it’s the cheapest. Make sure that you are actually getting a good deal and not merely skimping on quality.
