As a homeowner, one of the things you want to do is minimize costs and maximize value on whatever project you undertake. When it comes to roofing, the priority is to get a good job done. Whether you need to repair your roof or install a new one, there are certain things that determine how much money you will spend on the project.
If, for example, you need to have a new roof installed, the factors you need to look into are different from those to be considered if you are undertaking some roof repairs. The following post describes some of the factors to consider when getting a new roof installed:

The questions described in the post above will give you some idea of what will make up your roofing estimate.
When it comes to repair, there are several things that will determine the cost of your project. If you think that the estimates are too high or too low, the following post may help you understand why this is:
Type of Roof
There are many types of roofs including flat roofs, gabled roofs, shed roofs, hipped roofs, tile and mansard roofs. Roofs can be made from different materials including shingle, asphalt, concrete tile, clay tiles or metal. This is because of the fact that all materials do not cost the same per square foot.
The Size of the Roof Repair
A minor repair is only going to cost less compared to a replacement. In fact, the size of your roof and the size of repair are the biggest factors you need to consider when estimating the roof repair estimate. Roofing contractors usually quote repairs and replacement based on square feet. This means that a smaller roof repair will cost less than a larger roof repair. Read more at JD Candler Roofing…
Another major consideration that many homeowners overlook is roof maintenance. A poorly maintained roof will cost you more than one that is well maintained, as described in the post below:
So, the real question is, why repair a roof that apparently has no problems? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?
Umm, not so fast. Trying to determine the condition of a roof while standing on the ground or inside the home is dubious. It takes inspection both on the roof and on the underside of the roof. Maybe even in walls and other parts of the home. It takes experience to know what to look for…
The main reason to repair a roof is so you hopefully don’t have to bear the cost of replacing a roof. Minor repairs done today could cost you say $400. Let them grow into bigger problems and roof replacement just months from now means you spend 4, even 5 figures. In other words, you took the gamble and lost way more than you otherwise would have.
