Your roof is one of the most important elements of your home. It is the first line of defense in protecting your property and belongings from the elements. A roof replacement can be expensive, in fact, it is often the most expensive home-related purchase a homeowner will make. It can be tempting to try and cut corners to save money. However, you very much get what you pay for when it comes to hiring a roofing contractor, so cheaper ones are not always a better option if it will save you a couple of hundred dollars!
Standing on the sidewalk looking up at a roof, the first thing you notice is the rood covering. Have the homeowners chosen asphalt shingles? Maybe they have a preference for wood shake? It could even be tiles made from clay, slate, rubber, or even metal! What you don't see is the most important part - what's underneath!
