The longer you wait to get your roof inspected, the higher the bill may be. Not to mention, your home’s safety, energy efficiency and curb appeal are all at stake while avoiding the inevitable. Our advice? Follow this 3-step process so that you can determine the cost for your project and tackle this daunting task.
Step 1: Find a Contractor you can Trust
There is nothing more important than doing your research before hiring a contractor to work on your home. A project as big and complex as a roof replacement should only be done by licensed and insured contractors. This is for your own safety and to make the most of your investment.

Step 2: Work with your Contractor to Determine if you need a Re-Roof or Replacement
Once you choose the contractor and commit to finding out the roof replacement cost for your home, the next step is scheduling an inspection. The contractor will head out to your property to inspect the situation in order to determine the best possible solution.
We will give you an honest assessment, and if minor repairs are all that is required to fix the issue, we’ll take care of it. If we determine that a roof needs to be torn off and replaced, we will first talk to the homeowner about their options and budget. One of the reasons we tear off the old roof and start completely over instead of covering an old roof is because we don’t want to cover up any underlying issues, like rotting plywood beneath the old roof. This can cause more issues down the road, and at Skyline Contracting, we aim for longevity.
Step 3: Discuss Budget
A roof replacement cost is not going to be cheap. This project is a long and winding process that will require thorough precision and involvement. It’s possible that your contractor will even find additional issues while inspecting your roof that may require immediate attention. So, if you’re going to do it, you might as well have a reasonable budget with wiggle room to accommodate your roof’s needs.
