Proper timing


  • You should always approach something like roof work or roof upgrades during the low season. By approaching a contractor during the busy season, they will have much less incentive to offer you the best deals.
  • Therefore, you want to try to schedule your roof upgrade or replacement during the spring and even late in the winter when they have much more incentive to give you the best possible price.
  • You can find some decent roof repair services if you decide to go with a contractor.

Opt for a roofing overlay


  • An overlay is an easy way to cut down the total cost involved with making a roof upgrade. An overlay is essentially installing brand new shingles on top of existing and older shingles.
  • Because it doesn’t involve removing the older shingles and because it can cut down to the total amount of time involved in the upgrade, it is going to save you a lot of money while providing a lot of the benefits of getting a new roof.
  • There are some drawbacks associated with it such as making further roofing work more complicated and time-consuming which can increase future projects costs. You have to consider both the pros and cons.
