  2. Roof plays a central role in protecting the house and everything inside of it. A roof is more than just the hat that makes a home appears finished. It protects the homeowners from the scorching sun, the rain droplets and the snowy winters. The roof should be strong enough to endure all 4 seasons. With time, due to general wear tear, it might be required to repair the roof or partially reroof the house.

Make sure all the details are specified in a contract Always make a written contract that includes all agreed-to details, products and project of the cost. 5

This ensures that the project is covered under the roofer’s worker’s compensation and liability plan. Replacing a roof is a major investment. Stay as informed as possible and verify each choice carefully before making any decision. Be happy with the results in the end as a new roof should last for at least about 20 to 30 years.
