It is always a better solution to solve your roofing related problems from the root cause instead of patching it here and patching it there. Temporary solutions are good to have but not if it accedes the expected budget.

Number one temporary solution for every roofing company starts with a caulking gun. It works but for limited time only. It works but depending on the location of the problem. If the roof is still in ok shape and does not require replacement, it can be repaired in the mean time but if the roof is over 10 or 12 years it is highly recommended to replace the entire roof. Minor leaks can cause major damages to the roof deck, insulation in the attic and of course the interior walls.

Paying high deductibles to the insurance companies is not a recommended method of saving but if your roof is always causing problems, replace it at your own cost not thru your insurance company. Insurance company policies are designed to hustle the citizens/society who owned a home, business or a vehicle.

Be sure to get 3 estimates from multiple roofing companies to compare the differences. Understand exactly what is being offered by the roofing company in writing. Ask questions if there is any. If the price seems to good to be true, request another estimate from a different company. If the price looks too high, request another estimate from a different roofing company. Expensive or cheap does not guarantee quality. Ask a friend or family member for advice.

When it comes to giving an estimate to a customer four or five hundred dollars over the average re-roof  price can be a challenge sometimes. Especially if it’s the same homeowner who tried to save 3oo dollars from previous re-roof.

One thing you should never agree to is installing new shingles over the existing shingles. Saving 200$ now can cost you way more especially if there was hidden secrets about the plywood or the roof. I personally get upset when i see two layers of shingles on a roof. It’s called “lack of workmanship” if you ask me. When the new shingles are installed over the existing roof, it looks like sh*t. The roof never looks flat and it is too obvious from a distance. I personally spend the extra few hours now than spend a whole day ripping. Two hours of labor becomes a full day eventually because if it was a 60 bundle house, now its a 120 bundle house. If you are getting our roof replaced make sure it is actually replaced not relayed.
