As a homeowner, you probably know what you should be asking when consulting a roof repair contractor for a roofing estimate. But you might have forgotten a few questions that should be addressed. Here are some of the key questions to consider.
1. Should I Go for More Energy Efficiency? If you’re looking to save more on your energy bills, then you should go for a more energy-efficient roof. This can help lower your energy consumption by easing your HVAC unit’s workload on keeping your home comfortable. An energy-efficient roof can effectively absorb the heat from sunlight with the right materials. Go for darker colors for your roof if you want to achieve this. Apart from energy efficiency, it also effectively reduces the maintenance costs you need to spend on your roof.
2. Should Low-Maintenance Gutters Be Installed?
A crudely installed and misaligned gutter can make an inefficient water drainage system especially when it rains, which doesn’t benefit your home at all. It also makes your home look like it’s not maintained properly. To avoid all this, ask your local contractor about installing low-maintenance, seamless gutters on your roof.
3. Is My Roof’s Ventilation Adequate?
When you’re consulting for a roof replacement estimate, don’t forget to ask if your current roof’s ventilation is adequate enough for your home. Having adequate ventilation can help in regulating the temperature of your attic during the summer months and can help in decreasing the moisture buildup during the winter months. It also keeps your internal roof structures in good condition.
