Repairing your roof is essential for saving money and your home. Along with the foundation, the roof is paramount to your foundation’s structure.
What use is investing your hard-earned cash in a 19th-century inspired Victorian home with lush, elaborate décor that’d make you the talk of the town…
What if your roof collapses two, maybe three years into your home’s life-span?
Your roof has to endure the ongoing HARSH weather conditions. Hail storms. Rainfall on a mission. High winds. Pounds and pounds of snowfall. This means it’s the most vulnerable part of your home – and a prime target for Mother Earth’s fury.
Regular roofing just won’t do the trick against the odds. `High quality roofing is a job for professionals. Experts. People who are trained in what they do best. Here’s one group of roofing expert contractors I can think of that does roofing and roof repair.
The Benefits of Quality Roof Repair
Because roof repair helps keep moisture and water outside! Not inside. The roof’s rafters, its very nature, is susceptible to damage if moisture gets its “greedy little paws” on it.
Really, a roof’s like a car more than a neat addition to your home. It’s an investment. As with your car, future repairs to your roof farther down the line will be more expensive than the initial investment of getting your roof done right the first time.
Inspect Your Roof Once Every Year for Leaks/Damage
Can I ask you something? How long has it been since you’ve last inspected your roof? I haven’t checked mine in 3 years… Maybe that’s why the shingles scatter all over the yard on a windy day!
The longer you go without inspecting your roof, or hiring a qualified professional to inspect it… there’s probably a host of problems going on “underneath the hood.”
Your Roof Can “Live” Longer!
Repairing your roof correctly can add up to 15 extra years to your roof!
15 extra years of never worrying about the harsh weathers ruining your perfect slide of local paradise? For a little maintenance once a year? I don’t think there’s anything else to think about, do you?
Since heat rises, and heat is an essential thing to have during those “my face is dead” freezing winters… Having a strong, endurable roof to make sure your insulation does its life-saving job… It’s 1+1.
(Did you know the temperature only needs to be -11 Celsius, 12 Fahrenheit for the human body to start shutting down? Remember, 0 C is the freezing temp for water! That’s 32 F. That’s a serious impact during harsh, frozen-tundra winters.)
But the question still lurks… Just how much will quality, professional-grade roof repair cost? How much will a day’s work (or cost) set you back? Will it take one day, a week, a month?
High Quality Service Is a Good Price to Pay
The time and cost put into roof repairs, depends on the contractor. (This is just me, here, but doesn’t it seem like everything depends on who you go with? If you’re looking for good music, it depends on who you ask. If you want mouth-juicy food, depends on which joint you go to.)
On the level, top tier roof repairs (new installations, mold removals, roof cement sealant, vinyl stripping, etc.) for, let’s say… you’re repairing 10×10 sq. ft. of wood. Now, depending on the company… the costs of roof repair can taper off anywhere from $200… and skyrocket all the way to $1,000.
Y’know what? That seems scary – I know, I get it. Seems like a high number… and it is. $1,000 for roof repair?
You bet. You hear those stories all the time about roofs that caved in and damaged the entire household – or at least an incredibly expensive part of the house… and the family lost everything.
The home they envisioned spending the rest of their lives in, together.
You Never Know What’s Going to Happen
Gone. All of it. The $1,200 sectional couch. The missus’ boudoir. Decades of family treasuries and heirlooms in the transparent glass cabinet. The 40” Samsung TV that hugged the wall.
All of it – in one fell swoop, destroyed. Because the family didn’t want to put a grand down on their roof repairs now, or for the future. It’s not that they couldn’t afford the repairs – they could.
They had a good $10,000 in savings. But, of course, we all know that was hardly enough to cover the hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages.
Sometimes, if you want professional roof services done by experts, you have to bite the bullet. The roofs of our homes are more important than we realize.
