Your roof is one of the most hardworking parts of your home. True enough, your entire residential property structure ensures thorough protection against the elements. However, it is your roof that repels rainwater, snowfall, and hailstones. Because of its vertical inclination, roofs suffer twice or even three times as that of your home’s walls or windows. Therefore, it’s always important to have periodic roofing maintenance to prevent any further damage against it in the long run.
Whether you’re using asphalt shingle roofs, which most know to require them twice a year or metal roofs that require infrequent, once every 2-3 years maintenance, it’s important that professional Calgary AB roofers survey and inspect every nook and cranny of your roof. In doing so, they can prevent all possible small problems from evolving into gigantic, problematic roofing problems in the near future.
Unfortunately, most homeowners may likely forget about performing roofing maintenance especially when their roofs are functioning fine during this time. Having a regular schedule and setting aside enough to pay for your maintenance will help you save 90% from possibly expensive roofing repairs in the near future. Nowadays, a simple roof repair can cost about $500-$1,200 whereas a simple roofing maintenance can cost about $120 every six months.
Roof maintenance is one of the proven ways your Calgary AB roofers can increase the lifespan of your roof. In fact, clay tiles can reach beyond their 70-year lifespan thanks to the efforts of diligent roofers performing maintenance and giving homeowners the exact condition of their roof and small investments in different areas that will play a huge role in further prolonging its lifespan and dependability.
Lastly, roofing maintenance gives you peace of mind. With your roof in top shape as experts have mentioned during their final report, you can sleep well during rainy nights, snowy mornings, and unexpected hailstorm evenings.
It’s not too expensive to have roofing maintenance services. Angie’s List has a great list of factors that influence the cost of roof maintenance and repair services. Learn more about it below.
1. Roof type
The type of roof on your home greatly influences repair costs. Roofs can be flat or sloped, high or low pitch, metal or shingled — or even something more unique. Roofing material costs vary greatly between roof types, and some require more labor and materials than others.
The least expensive option are asphalt shingles, and they run about $120 per 100 square feet, while slate shingles can cost between $800 and $1,000 per 100 square feet, and tile shingles can cost between $300 and $500 per 100 square feet. If you have a metal roof, you can expect materials to cost as much as $1,500 per 100 square feet.
2. Roofing repair permits
The city or town where you live can affect your roofing repair costs as well. The roofer may need to pull permits for repairs. The price of the permit may be a flat rate in your area, or it could be based on your home’s size or value.
In some coastal areas, there is a separate permit to protect your home from hurricanes and tropical storms. Hurricane bracing and straps, which may be required in these regions, can add several hundred dollars to the final cost. For example, a 1,350-square-foot roof repair permit can cost as much as $148 or $400, depending on where you live. (Continued)
