Determine A Realistic Budget Before Hand

Now, we understand that this isn’t always the case, however, before you start on any home renovation project, it’s important to make sure that you’ve fully budgeted for it. Many times, materials, labor costs, and other unexpected expenses come up. When you don’t properly understand how much all those expenses will cost, it can lead to feelings of stress and anxiety. Find out the cost of materials, labor, and anything else that you may be replacing upfront. This will require you to do some research. You will also probably want to add a bit of stretch within your budget. Lucky for you, we offer complimentary estimates that will give you the cost of your roofing project upfront. This way you’ll know exactly how much you’re going to pay and that you’re not putting yourself in a bad situation financially. 


Understand Your Insurance

Not all roofing projects will be covered by insurance, but if you’re someone who is needing roofing services due to storm damage, make sure you’re utilizing your homeowner’s insurance. Depending on your policy, you may be entitled to a certain amount of money that can go towards or cover your expenses. If you’re needing help determining whether or not you’ll be covered by your insurance, our experts can help you! As local roofing specialists, we know the ins and outs of not only our community, but also how weather and other aspects can affect your roof. Connect with our roofing specialists and speak with them about your policy, and we can help determine if you’ll be covered and what your next best plan of action is!   


Understand Your Space 

If you’re replacing your roof, make sure you understand your current space. From the type of material your home is made out of, your location, and your needs for your next roof, there are many things that you’ll want to consider. You may be surprised to learn what you do and do not need, which our specialists will be able to determine during your free consultation. We pride ourselves on our expertise in the roofing industry, and as a family-owned business, we treat you as such, which means we give you the best bang for your buck! 


Do Your Research Before Hiring

Like any major project, do your research, especially before hiring. Labor costs, materials, and time can add up, which means that saving your money by going with a reputable roofing company can make a huge difference. Ask friends and family members, read customer reviews, and speak with companies before you fully commit. You want to make sure that you’re giving yourself the best options for your home. While many companies offer a free inspection or consultation, go with your gut instinct! You can spot someone who’s honest and trustworthy and not just someone trying to sell you extra things you don’t need. 


Keep All Your Receipts and Be Aware of Guarantees

Make sure to keep all your receipts and contracts after your roofing project has been completed. If for some reason you are unhappy or realizing that there are issues in your current home, you want to make sure that you’re getting the most out of your roof. Of course, Sparks Roofing wants to make sure that every little detail is perfect and exceeds your expectations. We make sure that everything gets done right the first time because we know how frustrating it can be to have your roof replaced or repaired wrongly.
