How to Save Money on Roof Installation
Roof replacement can be not only difficult to execute but very costly. The costly nature of roof replacement motivates homeowners to seek cost-cutting methods. Bill Ragan elucidates several cost-cutting methods for homeowners in the YouTube video, “How to Save Money on a Roof Replacement (Without Ruining It).”
First, homeowners should consider using 3-tab shingles. They cost $3.75 per square foot and can offer lasting service for 18-23 years.
It offers the perfect middle ground between cost and durability.
You could also get a nail-over roof installation. You’ll have to check if your old roof qualifies for a nail-over before proceeding since errors occur when a home is unfit for the process.
Interviewing many contractors to get the best possible quote is recommended. However, you shouldn’t just choose the cheapest contractor since you could get a poor roof installation that will cost you more in the long run.
Using generic components also saves costs. Generic facsimiles of branded materials could serve you just as well and are much cheaper.
Finally, educate yourself. It enables you to be involved during the whole process to get the best possible replacement for your home.
