Signs You Need To Replace Your Roof 

 

There are several key signs that indicate that you need to replace your roof. 

 

Most notably, if there are cracks, missing or curled shingles, sagging in the roof and if you are experiencing continuous leaks. Shingles or shakes that have aged or are broken are also clear signs of a roof replacement

 

Significantly, if you have experienced extensive sun, hail, wind and ice damage, you should have your roof inspected to determine the extent of the damage. If you haven’t had a replacement in more than 20 years or don’t conduct routine roof maintenance, it is likely time to start the process of obtaining inspections and quotes.

How Much Are Roof Replacements? 

 

It can be difficult to determine the cost of a complete roof replacement without considering these impacting factors: 

 

  • The quality of the roofing material
  • The size, pitch and slope of your roof 
  • The removal of the current roof
  • The company and their workmanship quality
  • Any unexpected issues that might arise during the project 

 

Therefore, when it comes to roof replacement, it’s best to speak directly with a Calgary roofing company, so you can get detailed information about how much the project might cost you.

 However, it’s important to have a basic understanding of the prices, so you’re not surprised by the numbers. Research indicates the following prices:

 

  • HomeAdvisor states that “nationally, the average homeowner spends about $8,255 to install a new roof, and most spend within a range of $5,421 and $11,123.”
  • Fixr offers similar rates, suggesting that homeowners spend between “$7,000 and $12,000, with most people paying around $9,000 for a 2,000 sqft. roof with architectural shingles on a 2-story home.” 
  • Homestars breaks down the numbers by the materials of choice, pointing out that “Asphalt shingles are one of the most affordable roofing solutions available, which is why they are so popular among homeowners.” 
  • HomeGuide says that it costs “$4,707 – $10,460 ($450 Per Square)” per roof replacement, but they do note that it is “depending on the size and material of your roof.”

 

That’s why, as we mentioned above, it’s best to talk to a Calgary roofing company

What To Look For In Calgary Roofers 

 

Who you hire to conduct your roof replacement; it is vital that you take the time to research the roofing company and consider the following factors: 

 

  • Their experience in the industry, particularly for specific roofing materials and styles. Family-owned and local operations mean a more focused service for you. 
  • Their reputation and reliability amongst their customer base, which can be checked by Google reviews and customer references 
  • Customer approach and knowledge; speaking to them can prove useful, so you know that they’re the right company for you
  • The quality of their workmanship, and if they exceed industry standards (if they do, it’s a good sign!)
  • Warranties offered.  Ensure the company will still be operating in 8 years to honor the warranties they promise. 
  • They adhere and follow guidelines to ensure safety for their employees and your home
  • Environmentally responsible is a key factor as they ensure that material is properly disposed of and reused in future
