If your home is more than 20 years old and still has its original roof, it’s probably time to start thinking about replacing it. However, we know that many homeowners get overwhelmed with the idea of scheduling a roof replacement. With so many decisions to make and options to choose from, it can be tempting to put it off until a more serious issue arises.
The Carolina Exteriors team has your back! Feel more prepared for your roof replacement project by reading our tips in this guide.
Choosing the Right Roofing Company Is Key
The most important decision you’ll make for your roofing project is who you hire to do the job. The right contractor will guide you through the process, answer your questions along the way, have a before and after gallery from previous clients, and help you make the best decisions for your home. They’ll also use high-quality materials so you’ll know that your new roof will last.
When searching for a roofing contractor, look for a company that has a proven track record of work in your community, reading through reviews to help you make your decision. You’ll also want to choose a roofing company that is licensed and insured to give you added peace of mind. We hope you’ll agree that the Carolina Exteriors team meets all of that criteria!
Material Makes All the Difference
Next, you’ll want to do some research on the different types of roofing materials. Here at Carolina Exteriors, we proudly offer asphalt shingles, which are designed to withstand our wide-ranging North Carolina weather. Best of all, these shingles require very little maintenance and they come in a variety of styles and colors, so you can choose a roof that complements the rest of your home’s exterior.
Our team believes in using only the highest-quality materials, which is why we offer asphalt shingles from two of the leading roofing manufacturers in the country: CertainTeed and Owens Corning.
Consider Cost vs Value
Finally, you’ll want to think about your budget for your project. While you do, we’d encourage you to weigh the cost vs value of your project. While installing a new roof on your home is certainly an investment, it’s one that will pay off, especially if you choose a reliable contractor that uses high-quality materials.
For our customers, we’ve seen that the average return on investment for an asphalt shingle roof replacement ranges between 51% and 59%, adding value to your home. Beyond that, a new roof also keeps your home protected, helping to prevent structural damage down the road. A new roof is ultimately a good investment, especially if you’re planning to stay in your home for the foreseeable future.
Additionally, here at Carolina Exteriors, we proudly offer a 7-year labor warranty on top of our manufacturer warranties, giving you further peace of mind that the cost it takes to replace your roof is well worth it.
