The Best Time for a Commercial Roof Replacement

Timing is important in a lot of matters, including comedy, investing, and commercial roof replacement. If you wait too long to replace your roof you could make a number of unnecessary and costly repairs. Even worse, the whole roof could come crashing down on your business. Replacing a roof when it still has good life in it is probably a foolish thing to do. So how do you know when it’s the optimal time for a roof replacement? Although a roof replacement for your business shouldn’t interrupt your operations, there may be times of the year when it is more convenient. Otherwise, the main considerations are the shape of your roof.

Choose the Perfect Time

As with other major business expenditures, there is always the question of repair versus replacement. This is a difficult question, and it’s different for each situation, but the following advice can help.

  • Consult with a qualified roofing contractor. The company can give you the benefit of its experience with roofing matters.
  • Get an inspection and a free estimate. The cost may be less than you expected and favorable financing may be available.
  • Analyze what you have been spending on roof repairs. The annual cost may be higher than what you would pay to finance a new roof.
  • Consider the benefits of a new roofing system. You would have no worries in the roof department for many years.

After consulting with a reputable roofing contractor, and crunching the numbers, you will probably have a good idea where you are. It’s possible you can put off a new roof for a couple of years, which gives you time to save and plan.

Pick the Right Company

The right roofing contractor makes the decision easier. You will get good information from a source you can trust. For assistance with commercial roofing contact Andrews Roofing by calling 757-296-0553 or emailing us today!

How To Finance Your Roof

If the top of your house is weathered and worn beyond repair, you may be in the market for a new roof. Unfortunately, the price of a fresh roof is well above what most folks would consider spare change. A new roof can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $20,000 and beyond. The best way to tackle such a vast home improvement project is through financing. Here are several steps you should take in considering a payment plan for some up-to-date shingles:

  1. Identify Problems With Your Existing Roof
    Faulty flashing, animal or plant intrusions, leaks, water stains and penetrations are all valid reasons for needing your roof replaced—and the list goes on and on. Presenting your bankers or store-credit representatives with a proper list of damages helps them to consider your level of necessity.
  2. Research Materials and Labor
    The best financing agreements derive from knowledge. If you hope to pay a contractor through the bank, prepare to discuss information on the cost of supplies and hourly assistance as it applies to your circumstances. If you hope to finance directly through the store, demonstrate that you understand their product and negotiate for what you need.
  3. Know How Much You Can Put Down
    Financing plans sometimes ask for a portion of the total cost up front before dividing the rest into scheduled payments. Know what you can afford. If you agree to a promotional rate that offers minimal interest early on, be sure to pay off your roof in the allotted time before interest rates increase.

A sturdy roof is one of the most important features of your home—protecting your family from the wild outdoors and brightening the face of your humble abode. Safety and style are worthy investments within your reach with a smart financing plan.
