Roofing quotes are rough figures. Many factors, such as weather and hidden structural issues, can change estimated costs over time.
Here are the typical reasons a roof replacement project goes beyond the quoted price.
Changes in Project Schedule
Typically, the quotes provided by residential and commercial roofers are valid for a limited time only. Act immediately and never wait for the next season to schedule your roof replacement. If you postpone your project, you’ll need to request another estimate because costs typically change depending on the season.
Existing Structural Issues
Before installing the new roof, your roofers must replace any rotting or damaged material. These added expenses may hurt your budget, but they are important because they will ensure a long-lasting and functional roof. That said, hire roofers who perform thorough inspections so structural issues are in the estimate.
Professional roofing contractors will protect your home from any damage. Make sure your roofers have safety measures in place to prevent damage to your property. For instance, they should cover your lawn with a tarp and make sure other areas of your home are protected while they are working on your roof. You also need to take care of a few things to prepare your home for roof replacement. For example, you should move your vehicle away from the job site.
Complex Roof Design
Your roof shape and size affect your roof replacement costs too. Complex and multi-leveled roofs cost more than ones with simpler designs. High-sloped roofs have larger surfaces, so they typically have higher costs.
