If the old roof on your building is beyond repair and needs to be replaced, be prepared that there is still a long way to go, there are many important decisions to make ahead of you. Here are some important things to consider before the replacement:
- Selecting the roofing material – the most important factors to consider when picking your material are your budget, your climate area, your expectations in terms of durability, aesthetics and the complexity of the installation process and of the maintenance tasks. The most common roofing materials are asphalt shingles, panels, shingles or tiles made from metal, clay and cement tiles and slate, each offering different benefits and being available for different prices;
- Selecting the roofer – to ensure that your new roof is installed correctly and to benefit from the warranty that comes with your roofing materials, you will need to hire a professional roofer. While assessing available roofers, look for fully insured Denver roofing companies that are properly licensed in your state and have vast experience with the type of roofing that you want. Ideally, you should contact three or four roofers to request cost estimates from them. Before the final decision, compare the estimates in terms of both quality and price and make sure that your roofer is willing to sign a contract about the project with you.
