Phil's Main Roofing
The day you officially decide to remodel your roof will either be a) a day of relief or b) a day where your stresses multiply when you think about how much of your hard earned cash will be leaving your pocket. But although roofing can be one of the more costly home improvement projects you take on, it doesn’t have to be the one that leaves your wallet high and dry. In fact, here are a few key ways that you can even fall into some savings:
Get More Than One Estimate – Not all contractors price their jobs equally, which inevitably means one is going to be more expensive than the other. However, keep in mind that the cost of your job can be a direct reflection of the workmanship you will receive, so sometimes your savings can come in the long run by choosing a higher priced contractor now.
Use Time Wisely – As a project that takes place outdoors, it’s not uncommon for contractors to have a shift in their rates dependent upon the season and time of year. When you think about scheduling an appointment, carefully consider the season you choose, since contractors may be more likely to negotiate in some months rather than others.
DIY – Although we don’t recommend doing the repairs yourselves, there are a few DIY tasks you can complete to save on project costs. For example, you might volunteer to clean up the materials yourself or transport them to your home on your own terms prior to installation.
When all is said and done, however, the money that you put into your roofing project can go a long way - especially in terms of your home’s resale value. Therefore, sometimes the inexpensive approach is not always the best approach! For more tips on how to save during your next roofing project, please click here.
