Decisions You’ll Need to Make for New Roof Installation

New roofs can be a huge undertaking and create a lot of stress. If you have the right roofing and building services, you’ll find it’s much easier to manage. However, you’ll still need to make some big decisions before your roof installation.

Choosing Between Roofing Companies

Which roofing companies you go to for a quote will be based on what they have to offer. What type of roof do you want? Does the roofing company have experience? How are their reviews? With all of this in mind, you can choose a few specific companies and ask them for a quote on your project. This will give you a better idea of which option is most likely to work for you.


Determining Your Budget

Installing a new roof is a big investment, but it’s also a very important one. You should figure out your budget as soon as possible, so you can determine which options you need. In fact, it can be helpful to do this before you start contacting roofing companies, as this will help you narrow down which choice to make, based on their quotes.

The higher the budget, the more options you have. It’s best to aim for somewhere mid-level, since a cheap roof is never a great idea.


Selecting the Roofing Material

The type of roofing material you choose will have a big impact on how the finished roof looks. You can go with the cheaper, standard asphalt shingles, or you can aim for a more polished look with slate tiles. From metal to wood and everything in between, there are plenty of options for your roof installation and you’ll need to consider which you prefer. The type of roofing material also impacts your budget, so consider this, as well, when making your choice.


Deciding on Upgrades

Since you are planning on a new roof installation anyway, this is the perfect time to add on any upgrades you may want. What type of upgrades might you consider? Here are the most popular options:


New roof vents: The vents on your roof may be older and could do with a replacement. This will add some costs to the roof installation, but it’s often worth it, both in looks and functionality.


Nicer fascias: A new roof is a good excuse to install better fascias, so consider this as a possible upgrade.


Metal accents: These can really make your roof look more impressive and add a lot to the overall aesthetic.


Better metal flashing: If your old flashing didn’t make you smile, why not choose something that will this time? Metal flashing can be a good way to improve your roof with just a small change.
