Two Rewards for One Roof

Receiving a reward of any kind typically proves a very positive experience. But when you engage an Orange County roofing company to install a new roof, you’re rewarded twice. The first of the two is something of a personal benefit – an overwhelmingly good feeling. New shingles just have that effect on homeowners. For good reason. Not only do they radiate beauty before your eyes. The presence of crisp new shingles atop you home also eliminates many burdensome worries. Seldom do people stress about leaks and other problems once a roof is replaced by a qualified Orange County roofing company.

The second reward you’ll enjoy is an increase in your home’s worth. Any Orange County roofing contractor who installs a new roof provides a significant improvement to the residence. Such an improvement typically adds immensely to the property’s market value. This value-boost certainly is a welcome benefit at any point. But at selling time, it gains considerably in importance. Understandably, prospective buyers are just as leak-conscious as current residents are. And they’re generally willing to pay a premium for the privilege of guaranteed dryness. Indeed, a new roof is a very sound investment.

Commercial roofing contractors provide the same two rewards to the owners of business structures. Whether a building houses a sprawling company that occupies multiple floors or a group of modestly-sized offices, a new roof is a major plus. As with homeowners, building owners often are rewarded with lower stress levels and higher property values. You can take that to the bank.

How to Get Your Money's Worth When Hiring a Roofer

Roofs and roof repairs cost homeowners a huge chunk of change - between $4,000 and $15,000 for a full replacement. So you definitely want to be sure to get your money’s worth when hiring an Orange County roofer. Here’s how:

Know How They Charge

Typical roofers charge according to “squares” - ten-by-ten sections of roof. The average roof has between 28 and 32 squares, which may or may not need replaced, according to your needs.

When it comes to actually replacing a roof, Orange County roofers will start by charging for the removal of the old roof. And your costs will depend on how many shingle layers are on the old roof. And if your roof is extra high or extremely steep, expect to pay more.

The Orange County roofer will also charge for installation of the new underlay and shingles. And, of course, you’ll have to pay for the actual materials used to complete your new roof or roof repairs.

Know Your Options

When it comes to roof repair and replacement, you’ve got plenty of options. For instance, you could have the roofer install new shingles over the old ones, instead of removing the old shingles. This is cheaper, but it also reduces the lifespan of your new shingles. However, if you’re on a really tight budget, this is an option to consider.
