Planning for a Roofing Project in 2019

As we kick the New Year off, many of us are budgeting for major expenses in 2019. From upcoming vacations to remodels, now is the time to prioritize expenses for the year ahead. If replacing a damaged or aging roof is part of your 2019 plan, we encourage you to take note of today’s post. As a leader among the top Denver roofing companies, we consider it our responsibility to help property owners effectively plan and budget for upcoming projects. Let’s take a closer look at the variables you should consider as you plan for your 2019 roofing project.

Brick HomeReplacement vs. Repair

Are you planning to complete a roof replacement or repair in 2019? Not sure? Before you can begin budgeting you will have to decide if you plan to replace or repair your existing roof. It’s important to consider total cost of ownership as you weigh your options. If a repair can add several years or even another decade to the lifespan of your roof, it’s probably in your best interest to consider repair work. However, if extensive damage or age has compromised the integrity of your entire roof, a patch job might just be delaying the inevitable, and cost you more in the long run. The most effective way to determine your best course of action is to speak to a professional.

Schedule an Inspection

We always encourage property owners to schedule a roofing inspection as they begin budgeting. At Elite we are proud to offer free, no-obligation roofing inspections. Before booking an inspection with any Denver roofing company, be sure they offer the same! Once complete, you will have a professional analysis of the health of your current roof. This will help you decide whether to move forward with a repair or replacement and enable you to start budgeting.  Be sure to also discuss the options available to you in terms of materials and extended warranties as these variables can impact your budget.

Timing & Weather Conditions

Property owners often forget to account for productions schedules when planning for a roof replacement. You are likely to find that all top-rated Denver roofing companies are scheduling weeks or months out, depending on the time of year. If you’re hoping to have a project completed in late spring, you will likely need to schedule your work months in advance. Avoid surprises when you’re ready to get your project started by prescheduling.

It’s also important to keep in mind that weather can play a role in delaying production schedules. The unpredictable weather conditions here in the Rockies certainly keep us on our toes. At times winter weather gives way to warm, sunny days enabling us to install roofing at unexpected times. Adversely, major storms can stop production schedules during the busy season. This is yet another reason to schedule your project well in advance. Though weather conditions may impact exact start and end dates, by scheduling in advance you can rest assured that your roofing project will be completed within your projected window.

Potential Damage

If you suspect that your roof has sustained damage or has begun to deteriorate, it’s critical to schedule a roof inspection immediately. Even if your best-laid plans were to replace your roof later in the year, leaving a compromised roof unaddressed can lead to costly complications.  You may very well find that your roof will hold up for a few more months. However, if you find that your roof is in need of immediate attention, you will be very glad you acted with haste.
