3 Things That Can Increase the Cost of Your New Roof

As a homeowner, how often do you think about the roof over your head? Probably the only time you’ll pay attention to it is when it needs regular roofing service and maintenance. When it’s time to get it replaced, consider each aspect of the roofing project. You should also prepare yourself for the overall cost of the replacement job, as it often goes beyond the material and labor fees. 

Cost of Your New Roof

It helps to be on the lookout for signs that indicate additional costs for roof replacement. These include: 

1. Rotten Plywood & Hidden Leaks

When roofers find rotten plywood underneath the old shingles, it’s typically caused by faulty installation or gradual deterioration that allowed water to seep in. If it’s an old roof, then it’s often expected, but the damage must be replaced before installing new materials. This may not always be part of the overall cost of your roofing project, so expect additional expenses to replace the damaged and rotten plywood.

2. Water Traps

A water trap is caused by poor roof design and workmanship. Unfortunately, this type of damage is often hard to detect until a full tear-off takes place during the replacement process. This should be properly addressed or else it will lead to shingle deterioration near the affected area. This may increase repair costs and even lead to premature roofing and siding replacement.

3. Inner Structural Damage

Typically, if your roof structure is undamaged, then your replacement project will consist mostly of tearing off the old material and placing new material over the existing deck. Some types of damage within the structure are caused by hidden moisture leaks, pest infestation or even excess weight. If this is the case, the entire roof must also be replaced to accommodate new shingles and eliminate any risk of collapse later on.

It is recommended to include a buffer when preparing a budget for your new roof. This way, you can easily deal with any unexpected issues that may arise during the roof replacement process.
