Looking for new roofing shingles? Start with these three tips!
Replacing a roof may be the most important renovation you’ll ever do to your house, but it can be pretty difficult to know where to start. That’s why it’s important to learn from the experts at Tycos. We’ve put together a quick list of important things to remember throughout the process.
1. Be Informed
As is the case with most things, you shouldn’t start considering a new roof without knowing what you’re looking at. For the purposes of this post, let’s just assume you’re looking for asphalt shingles. Do you have a color preference? This is something you definitely want to think about as it can drastically change the appearance and the appeal of your beloved home. What about price point? Are you looking for the best package money can buy, or are you just looking for a reliable upgrade? Another thing to consider is the warranty. Tyco's, for example, will offer up to a lifetime warranty on top of the manufacturer’s material warranty! This may seem like a lot, but don’t worry. An experienced sales representative will be there to help guide you through the process. But remember, the best way to be an informed consumer is to be clear about what you want to get out of the experience. After reading this, go take a look at some of our many other posts to get acclimated with the whole process.
2. Opt for the best quality at the best price
This one might be a little obvious, but it definitely has to be noted. We know that putting on a new roof can be a big project -- and a big headache. That being said, don’t just settle on a system based solely on the budget. Let’s not forget how important your roof is! You also need to consider longevity, appearance, energy efficiency, insurance coverage and much more. For example, the best shingles around will last for several decades, while some others may only last a few years. That’s why our experts at Tyco's Roofing only use brands we know we can trust, such as CertainTeed, GAF, Owens Corning, and Tamko. This allows our customers to have their pick of quality shingles that match their price points AND meet their needs. So before you buy, make sure you and your Sales Rep talk about the specifics and you know exactly what you’re getting.
3. Go with a roofer you can trust!
The final decision is who you’re going to work with. Your satisfaction will largely depend on how smoothly the process goes. A respectable roofer is always willing to stand by his work. After all, The last thing you want is to wake up and see that your bedroom ceiling has turned into a waterfall. The best advice here is to do a little research and decide for yourself.
