4 Things to Consider When Replacing a Roof Maslow’s hierarchy of needs lists shelter as one of man’s physiological needs. And so houses were built to serve that very purpose. The roof is one of the most essential parts of a house that help fulfill this need. Constant exposure to the elements can wear a roof down, leading to leaks, loose shingles, and other damage. When this happens, the whole roof needs to be replaced. But replacing a roof isn’t easy. When not done right, it can create even bigger problems down the road that can put the homeowner’s safety at risk. Here are a few things you need to bear in mind when replacing a roof. Shop around Because most people replace their roofing once every 10 years, most roofers don’t worry about customer service and satisfaction since they do not rely on repeat customers to sustain their business. It’s important to choose a home roofer carefully and consider other factors aside from price. Talk to people that you trust or check home improvement sites to find certified roof installers  with a solid reputation and body of work. After drumming up a list of potential contractors, call them up and request for client references to do a background check. Out with the old Some states permit having more than one layer of shingles on a roof, which has people patching up parts of their roofs with a second layer. While this may seem like an easy way to avoid having to spend a lot of money on replacing a roof, it really only is a band-aid solution. Stripping away the old layer of shingles is better than risking a collapse. Getting a new roof  may be costly at first, but the benefits and longevity of a brand new roof over your head saves you more money in the long run. Consider the quality A roof is a very important part of the house that does not deserve to be scrimped on. Choosing high-quality materials for roofing installation not only ensures that it will be a while before your roof needs replacing, it also adds to the house’s curb appeal and market value. Go for shingles that are made of materials that last for 50 years. And while you’re at it, make sure the company you get them from provides a long warranty period. If your house’s structures can support it, get slate roofing shingles. They can be a bit on the heavier side, but they are very fire-resistant and last for a very long time. Clean as you go Another important thing you need to remember when installing a new roof is the cleanup. Stripping off old roofing means your contractors probably took out thousands of nails, some of which are likely lying around your driveway or yard. This can cause flat tires or injuries, which can lead to expenses that were not budgeted. Make sure that before you settle everything with your roofer that you ask them to clean up the mess. Most contractors usually have a large, strong magnet that they run around the perimeter of the house and on the roof to catch any stray nails and prevent accidents.
