Roof Contractor Tips in Warren

The Michigan Contractor Licenses Directory provides a free search tool to aid you in validating a potential contractor’s license. It is recommended you follow-up on each candidate to ensure proper licensing. Another good website to utilize is the Better Business Bureau to take note of previous customer reviews or complaints.

Climate Considerations for Your Warren Home

One aspect of roofing material selection is the climate in Warren. Weather takes a toll on roofing material so you want to use the one that has the best capabilities for your area that will last the throughout the life time of the material. Your contractor can advise you on the different types of roofing and their durability.

For a roof in Warren, it must deal with rain on an average of 126 days of the year and direct sunlight 181 days. While moderate temperatures in summer average a high of 83 degrees, winters can be brutal with temperatures dipping into the 20 degree range and an average snowfall of 33 inches.

Roofing Resources and Financing for Warren

For a listing of programs offering loans, grants, and incentives, visit the DSIRE site for information about available offers in Michigan. The Energy Star website explains what’s necessary to receive a federal tax credit for property owners having metal or asphalt shingles installed.

Roofing Materials

Choose from available materials appropriate for your home’s roof design from among a variety of styles, textures, blends, and colors. The following are an example of what is available:

  • Metal – available in coper, stainless steel and aluminum, Metal has a life span of 50 years.
  • Asphalt shingles – a popular material that is both durable and easily installed. Asphalt can last 15 to 30 years.
  • Fiber cement – fire proof, recyclable, lighter than clay or slate, and a life span of 20 to 30 years.
  • Clay or slate tiles – framework is necessary because of the weight of the tiles. Both are durable and long lasting.

Estimated New Roof Cost in Warren

Based on calculations for a home in Warren with 3,000 square feet and wood shingle roof replacement, the estimated low cost is $14,220,56 and the estimated high is $23,640.56. This averages out to the cost per square foot at $4.74 for the low and $7.88 for the high.

The estimated total includes the cost of the wood shingle material, additional supplies and materials, labor cost, and equipment allowance. Estimates generally do not include all fees. Other costs may be added such as labor transportation, containers, removal of material, sales tax, and site clean up to name a few. Ask your contractor about any potential additional costs.

Preparation and Unforeseen Problems

Preparation for the roofing project is vital and unforeseen problems are a possibility. In the preparation department, there are several things to consider prior to starting the project:

  • Take care of any repairs that may be needed around the roof area such as cleaning gutters, replacing soffits, or repairing a chimney. By doing it ahead of time eliminates the need to walk on the new roofing.
  • If an exterior paint or trim job is on the agenda, take care of it first to prevent damage to the roofing material.
  • Many homes have trees with branches overhanging the roof that need trimming. Again, take care of this before the project begins.

Unforeseen problems can bring a roofing project to a halt. Situations you may want to prepare for include:

  • Inclement weather such as electrical storms will stop the project. If possible, avoid planning the new roofing project during the rainy season.
  • Wood or water rot to the underlying decking and beams must be repaired before the new roofing can be installed.
  • Should repairs be necessary, you’ll need to have additional funding in place.
  • If the project is stopped for a significant time, it will negatively affect the completion date. Based on the size of the area being covered and the materials used can take anywhere from 3 days to over a week to complete the installation. If problems arise, this can extend the completion date.

A new roof is a big job. It’s an expensive project but one that reaps positive benefits for years to come. When done right from step one, you can expect an immediate return on investment in better energy efficiency, lower utility bills, immediate curb appeal, marketability, and an increase in property value.
