Budgeting for a new roof

When roofing repairs can no longer be ignored or postponed, it can feel overwhelming to come up with the cash necessary for such an investment. Fortunately, there are options to help in advance. Chief among these options include preventatively having your roof inspected yearly.

Regular inspections of your roof can help prevent other issues down the road. Signs of wear can begin with missing or cracked shingles. Granules from asphalt can also be a sign of wear especially if you notice these right after a heavy storm. Preventing water damage to your roof and gutters can be as simple as maintaining a seasonal schedule to have these areas inspected. Handling these simple repairs and maintenance can save you money in the future by preventing costly repairs.

The roofing materials that you choose can also make all the difference in cost. You may determine that the same material suits you well. Often the same look can be achieved using a similar option but perhaps different manufacturer. The amount of time you plan on spending in the home can determine your upgrade options. Do you prefer an average roofing warranty or would an upgrade make sense in the long run? Wood shingles, recycled rubber, and tile can all be used for roofing purposes, but they come with higher price tags to keep in mind.

Here are a few signs to look for when determining if you need a new roof or repairs:

  • Curling shingle edges
  • Visible loss of roofing granules
  • Cracked shingles
  • Missing shingles
  • Water leaking into attic or house
