Can you afford a roof replacement on your budget?
A roof replacementcan be a major investment for every home, and might feel daunting if you find yourself on a tight budget. Some homeowners might prefer a DIY roof replacement as a way to save costs, but roof replacements are a massive project and, without being done just right, can end up costing more than a professional roof replacement. There are also ways that professional roofers can even help you fit your roof replacement within your budget. Here are a few of our suggestions:
Get an Accurate Quote
The first way you’ll be able to determine whether you can afford a roof replacement on your budget, is to get a quote from the roofer of your choice. The quote will offer a thorough description of the cost as well as timeframe, and a breakdown of how much each element of the project will cost. You can also ask the roofer questions at this time to make sure all parts of the quote are clear to you. Your roofing quote is a good way to know what you can realistically expect with your budget.
Plan With Your Roofer
Discuss your budget with your roofer upfront. After all, there are several roof replacement options to choose from, and they all vary in cost. At Best 4 U Roofing, we never try to pressure you to choose one type of roof over another. We’ll go over your options and let you make the choice. If you have a tight budget, we’ll show you the options available within that budget. We’ll also discuss long-term costs as well, so you won’t be surprised by anything down the road.
Apply for Financing
Still having a difficult time making the expenses of a roof replacement work? Consider a financing plan. Financing plans allow you to space out your payments to something that’s more manageable and affordable for you. Best 4 U partners with Greensky, who offers financing plans such as:
- No Interest if Paid in Full in 6 Months
- No Interest if Paid in Full in 12 Months
- Reduced Rate of 9.99% for 103 months
Talk with your roofer about your financing needs and we, along with Greensky, can help you find a plan that works best for you.
Leave Room for the Unexpected
If there’s one thing that trips up homeowners when budgeting for any home improvement project, it’s failing to take into account the unexpected. Maybe the materials you wanted for your roof are on backorder or maybe there are issues going on under the surface of the roof that you didn’t expect. Projects rarely go completely according to plan, so it’s a good idea to leave a little cushion in your budget to handle unexpected costs. This is another reason why it’s good to go with a professional roofer, as they’ll be insured and prepared for anything that could go wrong.
