Home Remodeling Crash Course: What I Learned the Hard Way

Outside The Box Things Roofing Contractors Can Do For Homeowners

While most people only think of roofing companies when they find themselves in need of a replacement roof, there are many other skills these talented professionals bring to the table. Homeowners or prospective home buyers would do well to consider hiring a roofing contractor for any of the following reasons.

Whole House Fan Installation

Whole house fans are different from your average attic fan and can add value and comfort to your home — not to mention save homeowners large sums of money on cooling costs each year. There are DIY kits available, but asking a roofing contractor to do the heavy lifting offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Saves homeowners time.
  • Provides peace of mind that the job is handled by a professional.
  • Reduces risks to homeowners unaccustomed to working from heights.
  • Ensures that the roofing vents are sufficient to expel heat from the home.

Homeowners get the pleasure of lower cooling costs and the money saved will pay the added cost of bringing in professional roofers to handle the installation quickly.

Solar Panel Installation

Solar panel rooftop installation can help homeowners save even bigger when it comes to heating and cooling costs — and so much more — when done properly. Bringing a roofing contractor out to inspect your roofing style to see if it is a good candidate for solar panels is an important first step in the process of a major money-saving change for homeowners. Hiring a roofing contractor to do the work also helps to improve the safety of the installation process.

Home Inspections

Buying a home is one of the most important decisions a person will make in your lifetime and one of the key inspections you want to conduct on your investment is a roofing inspection. This one inspection will spare you huge expenses later if there are problems by allowing you to negotiate for the cost of repairs or replacement in your offer. Roofing contractors are often the best choices for roofing inspections for a home offer because they understand the local weather and know their way around a roof.

Insurance Inspections

Some insurance companies require roofing insurance inspections by one or more local roofing contractors before paying a claim. They want to make sure they understand the full scope of work needed on the roof, whether a replacement is necessary or repairs could be made, and how much the total job will cost.

It's not enough to find any roofing contractor to handle your important jobs. Make sure you take your time, read reviews, and get the right roofing contractor for your needs.

About Me

Home Remodeling Crash Course: What I Learned The Hard Way

One of the most challenging times for me as a homeowner was when my family was growing but my house was not. We were quickly running out of room and things felt cramped. That's when I started looking into the possibility of remodeling the house to add a couple of extra bedrooms and expand the living area. I had no idea how complex the process would be or what was involved, but I learned a lot along the way. Now that the work is done, I have created this site to help teach others what I didn't know going into the plans. I hope that the information here empowers you and makes your upcoming remodeling project easier.
