Roof Replacement - What to Expect When Replacing Your Roof

Many homeowners eventually find themselves in the need of a roof replacement, especially those who have lived in the same house for decades.

Replacing a roof can be a monumental project and although the costs are normally high, it’s important to avoid trying to cut costs by taking short cuts.

Your roof is what protects you, your family, your home and all your belongings, and the last thing you want is to have to replace a roof more times than absolutely necessary.

Furthermore, if you’ve never experienced a roof replacement before, then knowing what to expect beforehand can help you make sure it’s smooth sailing from start to finish.

Therefore, we have put together a list of roof replacement tips and things to consider when replacing a roof.

Roof Replacement Process

Choose wisely

Choosing a professional roofing company to replace your roof is highly recommended, no matter how skilled you are at DIY projects.

So, how do you choose the right company for the job? Firstly, take the time to do some thorough research.

Make some calls to roofing companies and ask them for quotes as well as references. It’s also important to make sure you choose a company based on their ability to install your desired roof properly.

Sometimes, making your choice based on the lowest price can cost you more in maintenance and repair in the future.

Additionally, find a company who guarantees a supervisor on site at all times to make sure the job is carried out to a high standard.

Don’t stay at home

Not only is roof replacement a noisy business, it’s also really messy. Not to mention the fact that you and your family will be exposed to the elements during the process.

It’s highly recommended that you, your family and your pets stay somewhere else until the job is complete.

The on-site supervisor will be there to make sure that your belongings are well protected against damage, so it’s not necessary to move out completely.

Furthermore, replacing a roof doesn’t happen overnight, unfortunately. It can take several days to complete and living in this kind of environment for more than a few days will be extremely uncomfortable.

Get it in writing

Ask for a written agreement or contract and make sure it includes everything that you and your chosen contractor discussed and agreed upon.

Make sure that you have this in place and signed by you and the contractor before they begin with the project.

This will protect you against things that could potentially go wrong. Make sure it includes everything up to the finest detail like the colour of tiles you requested.

Paperwork is important

Apart from the contract, you will need to obtain a building permit which reinforces the validity of your warranty and is also another means of ensuring your contractor adheres to the relevant building codes.

You may also want to obtain a letter from the contractor’s insurance company that is addressed specifically to you and confirms that your roof replacement project is covered by them.

Make sure it’s clean before you pay

Depending on the type of roof you had and how much of it needed replacing, the chances are that there will be hundreds of nails lying all over your property.

Professional contractors have magnetised machines which are used to scan over your entire property, making sure every nail is recovered.

Nails and other materials that are left behind can cause unnecessary injury or damage to your vehicle’s tyres.

Other rubble should also be removed by the contractors and within a timely manner.

Cape Roof Sheeting – Roofing Materials Cape Town

Now that you have a brand-new roof, it’s crucial that you do what it takes to avoid a roof replacement from happening any time soon again.

Choosing quality materials and a reliable contractor is one part, but proper roof maintenance is crucial in extending the lifespan of your roof.
