Save Money with Preventive Maintenance
We are creatures of habit, but until the habit evolves, what we do regularly usually occurs by choice and sometimes by a mandated choice.
Most of us are wired by the old proverb by Bert Lance “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
The problem with this statement is that if we wait until it is broken it WILL cost us more money to fix it. In addition, the stress, time, and emotional toll will be significantly higher depending on what is broken.
A good roof can last decades, but no roof will last forever. Your roof is constantly aging. If it is sagging, dropping, or leaking, it may be time to call for help.
But, by this time, the problem has already become BIG. What to do?
Nearly all roofs will need to be replaced eventually and it’s a costly project. The cost of a new roof can range from $8,500 to $14,300, depending on the material, labor cost, and where you are located.
Per the United States Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, the average cost of a new roof is $10,000, including materials and labor. The range is as wide as $8,500-$14,300.
