Replacing the average roof system in Calgary can cost between $5,000 and $9,000. However, depending on your roof, prices can vary from as little as $3,000 and sometimes reach over $20,000, and waiting too long can cost even more in damages and restorations.
So how do you know if you need a new roof or not?
The following 5 suggestions will help you figure out this big question.
1. When a professional contractor tells you to.
Here’s a list of the top 3 problem causing excuses we come across when people are in denial about their roof condition:
excuse #1: “We’ll it hasn’t leaked yet, so it can’t be that bad”
excuse #2: “It’s a lot of money, I’m going to wait for another couple years until I’ve saved up more”
excuse #3: “My friend says it’s probably ok, and he wouldn’t lie to me”
When a Calgary roofing company tells you to replace your roof, it’s usually wise to do as they say. If you don’t trust the contractor you’re talking to, get a second and third opinion then compare their answers. Remember however to listen to their advise at the end of the day. Take action. Be proactive.
2. When you see curling shingles or pieces of shingles on the ground. If your roof looks terrible, it’s probably wise to consult with a professional and start the process of choosing a new roof system.
3. When you find lots of granules (little pebbles) coming out from your eaves trough. This is one of the first signs your roof needs attention. Finding granules doesn’t necessarily mean it’s time to replace your roof, but it does mean it would be wise to consult with a professional and perhaps have a professional inspection.
4. When you see a leak! If your roof is leaking, contact a Professional Roofing Calgary Contractor immediately. Lucky for you though, all you might need is a simple repair. This will be determined after your contractor completes their inspection.
