The roof is one of the most important and most expensive components in any building, so the choice of the most suitable structure and materials needs to be made based on a thorough understanding of how new roofs work and the decision to replace it also needs to be made very carefully. Here are a few tips about how to get a great new roof:
- Go for the best you can get – whatever type of roofing material you choose, there are always several price and quality categories to choose from. Go for the best quality that you can afford – roof installation is something that you don’t want to do every few years, so try to go for the top shelf;
- Remove the old roof – in most states you are allowed to have two layers of roofing on your home, so you are not required to remove the old roof before you install the new one, but you should. Installing a new roof on top of the old one adds weight to the structure, which can lead to dangerous situations if the old roof had structural problems;
- Follow all building regulations – it is very important to have Denver roofing companies obtain all the permits and authorizations required for your roofing project and you also need a roofer who is licensed, insured and certified by the manufacturer of your roofing materials to be able to benefit from high quality labor and warranties.
