Getting a replacement from asphalt shingle roof companies is perhaps one of the biggest home remodeling projects you’ll ever have to tackle. Knowing this, it’s important to meet with your contractor beforehand and discuss all the pertinent details about your new roof before you begin construction.
Initial consultations are made to help you understand the scale and scope of your project but with major ones like reroofing, it’s easy to get caught up in all the details and forget a few essential points. Let our experts at Silver Leaf Contracting provide you with a few questions to always ask your contractor before a roof replacement.
Beauty and Performance
With asphalt shingle roofs, you want to strike a balance between what looks good and what works well. Always ask your roofer for recommendations about energy efficiency and from there, make decisions about the colors, patterns, and styles you want the shingles to have. You’ll likely have dozens to choose from but your contractor should be able to explain the pros and cons of each choice and help you make an informed decision.
With a full roof replacement, don’t forget to ask your roofer if they will be installing a new gutter system as well. Gutters are your number one protection against water-related damage on a roof and it’s always best to have one contractor handle both projects to create a fully-functional system. Talk to them about low-maintenance options to really improve the performance of your new roof.
High humidity levels in the attic can deteriorate the wooden support beams in your roof assembly. Make sure you discuss attic ventilation options with your contractor before your roof replacement. This can make a big difference in helping your roof last longer.
