2 Reasons You Shouldn’t Cut Corners with a New Roof

Roofer installs shingles on a new residential roofIf you know it’s time to get a roof replacement, and you want to minimize costs, it’s important not to cut corners when it comes to the quality of the roof and installation. It makes sense that you want to get the best deal possible and prevent overpaying for your roof. However, when you are shopping around for prices, make sure to keep quality at the top of your priority list. The truth is a cheap roof with faulty installation will cost you far more in damages and repairs than it would to invest in the best upfront.

Want to set yourself up for long-term success with your new roof installation? Here are the top two reasons you shouldn’t cut corners during the process:

#1: Cheap Materials Lead to Problems

What kind of materials will the roofing company you choose use? Don’t be afraid to ask. In many cases, roofers that provide super cheap estimates plan to use the cheapest, lowest quality materials so they can continue to make a profit on the roof installation. The problem is that those low-quality materials may save you money upfront but will decrease the effectiveness, efficiency, and lifespan of the roof.

#2: Lowball Roofing Bids Can Mean an Incomplete Roof

An extremely low roofing bid is a red flag indicating you will not be satisfied with the project. It’s common for companies to provide the lowball offer and be unable to complete the roofing project because the cost didn’t cover enough materials or sufficient labor. A lower bid may also mean the roofer will use an inexperienced team to install your roof, which can lead to a host of issues down the road.

How to Tell It’s Time for a New Roof

Old worn out shingles on a residential roofAlthough no home or business owner is thrilled with the idea of needing a new roof, sometimes it’s inevitable. The good news is that getting a roof replacement is a chance to achieve better protection and energy efficiency for your property. Plus, you won’t have to drain your budget on continual roof repairs if you choose your new roof and installation wisely.

Keep reading to learn how you can know it’s time to replace your commercial or residential roof.

Your Roof Is Old

Your roof’s expected lifespan will vary depending on the material, the wear and tear it has experienced, and the maintenance it has received. As a general rule, a roof with wood shingles or shakes will last between 20 and 40 years, while a roof with clay tile or metal can last 50 years or longer. If your roof has asphalt shingles, you are looking at about 20 years under ideal conditions.

The Roof Is Leaking or Has Mold Growth

Leaks and mold growth on the roof are signs your roof is at the end of its lifespan, especially if you have to pay for frequent repairs that don’t last long before the next issue develops. Both leaks and mold, as well as roof rot, can lead to catastrophic problems and safety concerns to both your property and the people in your home or business.

The Energy Bills Are Through the Roof (Literally)

When a roof is on its last leg, it becomes increasingly inefficient. You may notice your heating and cooling bills are getting higher and higher each year. What’s going on? You are essentially paying to let climate-controlled air escape through your poorly insulated roof or cracks in the roof. You’ll be amazed by how much a new, energy-efficient roof can save you money.
