When is a great time to consider a sparkling new roof? When you have other projects planned, of course. Bundling home renovations makes economic sense, yes, but it also makes your scheduling easier.
Great Roof Looks
Most of America’s homes are capped with fiberglass-asphalt shingles. They are economical, fairly attractive, and easily installed. But if you want your home to stand out from the rest, consider these handsome alternatives:
- Metal roofing — Practical, nearly indestructible, and designed to last an owner’s lifetime, metal roofing is available in many new looks
- Composite roofing — a 21st century solution to an age-old problem: getting your roof to look great, last a long time, and save you money; these modern composite polymer roof products mimic Old World slate, cedar shakes, and other classic roofing materials
- Tile roofing — Truly a unique look, real Ludowici tiles impart a noble, sophisticated look to any roof
Many roofers offer great roofs, and that’s fine. Yet some few roofing experts also bring their experience and knowledge to other exterior building services. VanWeelden Company offers all this:
- Exterior painting
When a new roof is scheduled, whether by necessity or choice, consider the disruption this may bring to your home. That is an ideal time to really open up the renovation schedule and add on the other masterful touches that will set your home apart.
Consider the new roof with fresh siding. Most new roofs look and perform best with new gutters. And if you want skylights, a reroofing project is the perfect opportunity.
Bundling a number of fresh looks makes sense for your calendar and your checkbook. One contractor handling two or three projects can dedicate a larger crew working very efficiently to get everything done. Since you are asking for a larger scale of work than just the one job, you can expect to negotiate a price break, too.
Before plunging into a multi-faceted renovation (roof, deck, doors, for example), make certain the contractor you select can handle the work. Get several bids for the work. Ask for references. Inspect previous jobs.
What is the scope of work? What schedule is the contractor recommending? Are the financing terms and warranties attractive?
