Roof Replacement Erie PA
If you own your house for more than a few years, a roof replacement is in your future. There is no way around it. That’s why Bauer Specialty is here to make sure your roof is there to see you and your family through the next several decades.
A roof replacement is going to save you a lot of hassle and costs from further damage down the road. If you can see external damage, like missing or broken shingles, bald spots, or rusted flashing, it’s not a good sign. There is a decent chance your roof decking is damaged too. This can result in water damage from the attic rafters to the foundation of your basement.
Costs of a Roof Replacement
Roofing concerns can be expensive. Compared to the extensive damage that can be caused by not repairing or replacing your roof, the cost is well worth it. When looking at a roof replacement estimate, there are many things to take into consideration.
- The extent of the damage – If the damage to the roof is mostly cosmetic, you can have a contractor layer new roofing materials over the old materials. But, if there is damage to the decking, flashing, or water seal, you’ll need to do a full replacement.
- The complexity of the job – Roofing is a dangerous job. If the pitch of your roof is steep or the decking is extremely damaged you’re likely to see a higher price. Another consideration in the complexity of your roof is the shape and number of changing angles.
- The materials – The materials you choose for your roof replacement will have an immediate effect on your costs. But, using higher quality materials will buy you longevity and peace of mind in your investment.
Paying for Your Roof Replacement
A replacement roof can cost a pretty penny. A lot of the time, you can utilize your homeowners’ insurance to pay at least part of the cost. You can also talk to your mortgage company about options to use the equity you’ve built into your home. It’s a necessary cost and a worthwhile investment.
