Every roofing project is different and there are several variables that are considered. Roofing contractors base their estimates on the size of your roof, removal and disposal of the old roof, roof style, shape, material choice, and other roof features such as chimneys, skylights or vents that may need additional attention.
Spring and Fall
Yes! According to the National Organization of Realtors, a new roof is one of the best projects when it comes to getting a return on your investment. It can also increase the curb appeal and help during closing.
Shingle underlayment is a water-resistant protective barrier that is placed between your roof’s framing material and the shingles that are installed. This is a necessary part of any roof because it provides another layer of defense against water damage.
Hedrick Construction does not recommend that you climb on your roof to inspect for hail damage. It often takes a trained eye to find many signs of hail damage. You may be able to see some signs of damage from the ground though. These include black colored dots or dents, loose granules in your gutters, shingle tears, or missing shingles.
Each project is different and depends on the size of the home and types of materials used, but it typically takes 1-3 days for a new roof to be installed on an average home.
Before your roofing project starts, you should remove any vehicles or items in your driveway, clear any outdoor furniture, identify outlets that can be used by the roofers, and take down any wall decorations inside. You may also want to make arrangements for your pets or children if they are upset by loud noises.
