After this past snow storm, I think it is safe to say that the winter had its last breath in 2017, and now spring is around the corner. Soon many homeowners in Charlotte NC will be thinking about their old roof that barely made it past this mild winter. Should we replace it, or repair it? Full roof replacement cost in Charlotte NC tend to vary between multiple factors. In this blog, we will go over the factors that Charlotte homeowners must look at prior to budgeting for a full roof replacement.
Asphalt Shingles Materials and Labor Costs
Most professional roofing companies in Charlotte NC utilize a 40% materials / 60% labor as their formula for roofing quotes. This pricing framework is just a guideline, and Charlotte roofing companies vary across the city. Roofing contractors will include overhead and profit either separately, or into the material and labor cost. The cost of the material will vary between roofing contractors, the quality of the shingle, and the quality of the roofing accessories. Also, if any of the internal material has damage on it, like rotten plywood, or water damaged support beams, that will increase the cost.
Full roof replacement cost in Charlotte NC are determined by roofing contractors. Most roofers use similar roofing shingle, the difference between roofers is the installation methods that are used. If you hire a self-proclaimed roofer, he will be able to replace your roof at a fraction of the cost. This is because most self-proclaimed roofers don’t have the proper licenses to run a roofing company. They don’t attend continuing education provided by roofing masters. Lastly, they can’t offer manufacturers warranties to clients. You may save couple hundred dollars in short-term, but in the long run, you set yourself up.
Roofers Risk Factors
When hiring a roofer that offers free roof inspections, don’t mistake the free service with how easy it can be to do a roof inspection. The reason roof inspections tend to be free is due to competition. With each roof inspection, roofers are putting their lives at risk. The cost of risk is a major factor when it comes to a full roof replacement cost. If the home is one story, with a 6:12 roof pitch, then the cost would be significantly lower than a 2 story, 12:12 pitch roof. To put into perspective, you would not want to cheap out on a surgeon. Your life is worth more than any dollar amount. Same goes for your roof. If you cheap out on your roof, you can be facing bigger issues in the future.
