Conducting roof repair can be overwhelming. Not only do you have to move things around to accommodate your contractor but you’ll also have to think of ways to do it without spending too much. This means careful consideration is needed as everything you and your contractor agree upon can affect the overall costs in drastic ways.
In this post, Certified Home Improvement, LLC discusses six things that can add to the overall cost of your roofing project.
Extent of Damage – Depending on how major the damage is, the overall cost of the project may be different from what you were expecting. If minor repairs are needed, it won’t cost you a lot. However, if a complete overhaul of your roof is necessary, then the time, labor, and materials to repair or replace what was damaged are sure to affect overall costs.
Fixtures – Roof fixtures like chimneys and skylights are bound to sustain damage at the same time your roof does. If that’s the case, you’ll have to repair them alongside. Since this will require additional time, labor, and materials, it will add to the price of the project.
Permits – Whether it’s a simple repair or a total roof replacement, you need to secure permits before any work can be done. Otherwise, you and your contractor can get into trouble with the local authorities or the HOA. To obtain these permits, you may ask your contractors to acquire it for you, which may come with additional fees depending on where you live.
Type of Roof – Your roof type will have a major contribution to the overall cost of the repair or replacement. This is because the price of materials will also vary depending on what kind of slope you have. Your roof pitch will also play a part as the higher the pitch is, the more labor and materials will be needed, bringing the price of the repairs up.
Size – Roofers charge by the square feet so the total cost of your roof repair or replacement project will also depend on your roof’s size.
Access – Access to your roof is a vital part of the project. With that in mind, the accessibility of your roof will affect the cost of the repairs. This is due to the additional equipment and labor that may be needed just to get up there, meaning the easier the access is, the less time and fewer materials will be required.
