5 Things to Know About Having a New Roof Installed

While every project is different, these are a few tips you should keep in mind when you’re having a new roof installed so you can sell your home.

  1. Permits are usually the contractor’s responsibility.

Usually, the contractor is the one who applies for and gets permits to work on your roof.

  1. Get everything in writing.

It’s important that everything from financing to waste removal is included in your contract.

  1. Schedule your job wisely.

Winter and spring aren’t the best times to schedule a roof replacement, but you can if it’s necessary. Just remember that the weather can delay progress.

  1. Get referrals first.

Don’t hire anyone until you’ve talked to people who have had good experiences with the contractor you’re considering.

  1. Make sure the roofers pick up nails.

Demolishing your old roof and installing a new one means lots – and lots – and lots of nails in your yard. Make sure the roofing contractor runs over the ground with a huge magnet to pick up all the strays.
