Avoid Hidden Friendswood Roof Replacement Costs: Tips to Keep Your Roof Replacement On Budget

If you’ve read our previous article about making sure your Houston roof is prepared for hurricane season, then you may be considering a Friendswood roof replacement to make sure your roof is at maximum strength, which would give it the best chance at withstanding heavy winds, possible tornadoes, and possible flooding associated with hurricanes and tropical storms. That said, we know that getting a roof replacement is a major decision that homeowners need to make, especially with how expensive a Friendswood roof replacement can be. Here’s how to avoid hidden roof replacement costs and keep your replacement job within your budget. 

Some Hidden Roof Replacement Costs to Plan For

Pests and Mold

Living in the greater Houston area means homeowners are all too familiar with the humidity and rain that comes with living in a subtropical climate. Because of the climate, it’s very easy for mold and fungus to form across your roof, and it becomes even easier the more weathered and worn your roof becomes over time, as moisture can get trapped between the shingles when they curl and crack

Friendswood Roof Leaks and Roof Rot

More often than not, leaks hang around for a while before they seep through the ceiling or the wall. In other cases, they aren’t even discovered until we remove your old shingles. If you allow the damage to become extensive, you risk rotting the entire roofing foundation, which will mean you’ll have to invest more in roof decking repair and possibly roof insulation repair. 

How to Minimize Hidden Costs of Roof Replacement

The best way to minimize hidden roof replacement costs is by performing proper Friendswood roof maintenance on a regular basis. Part of proper maintenance is getting seasonal roof inspections, which we offer for free. When we conduct a roof inspection (which we recommend scheduling twice a year), we climb onto your roof and thoroughly examine your shingles, valleys, chimney flashing, and gutter/downspout system. 

Getting thorough inspections is the best preventive measure to take to ensure your roof lasts longer and your replacement doesn’t go over the budget because it enables our expert roofers to determine whether any underlying damage needs to be addressed. We are often able to catch signs of damage before a full roof replacement is required, which gives Friendswood homeowners a chance to plan their roofing budget.
