A small roof leak can cause great headache and be quite costly if not fix promptly. Finding where the leak is can be hard and you might need to find a reliable roofer that will get it right the first time.
Minor leaks can cause major damage. Listen to a 60 seconds home improvement radio tip and avoid roofers that give you a list of bullet points with important details missing. Ensure that you know exactly what materials the contractor plans to use.
Second-rate supplies maybe cheaper, but at the end you might need additional repair that will cost you a lot of money.
- Make sure you’re dealing with a reputable contractor.
- Take a closer look at the estimates you’ve already received. How comprehensive are they?
- A careful review takes time, but it can save you thousands of dollars—and loads of grief.
“Don’t let your roofer talk you into nailing new shingles over the old ones. You’re better off inspecting the sheathing below and correcting any issues before moving forward. Finally, before you sign the contract, read it over so you understand any liabilities and warranties. If anything goes wrong on the job—or after the crew leaves—you’ll know exactly where you stand.”
