If you know your home needs an entirely new roof, you’re looking at an average cost in Laurinburg of a little more than $8,000. Most homeowners will spend between $5,000 and $11,000, with a low of a little more than $2,000 and a high of $14,000. Costs vary because homes vary. The same square footage of roof may be more costly on home than another simply because of the pitch of the roof – the steeper the roof, the more time and materials it will take for a new installation. A ranch-style roof is straightforward and simple, so it’s less expensive. A Colonial-style home may have a few slopes, but still shouldn’t be too hard. A Tudor-style home, though may have steep slopes and many eaves, which make it a more difficult project that will cost more. The average time to complete a roofing job (including tearing out the old and installing new shingles) is 3-4 days, depending on the size of the home and the size of the crew on the job. Feel free to call us to get an estimate on your roofing project – we’ll help you determine exactly what you need.
The average cost to install new siding for a Laurinburg home is a little more than $9,700, with most homeowners paying out between $6,927 and $12,534 for the whole job. At an average cost of $400, siding repair work is much more affordable. Most homeowners spend in a range between $212 and $587 for repair work.
The best repairs occur when you have leftover siding from the original installation. If the siding has been exposed to the elements for a few years, though, the original pieces may not match anymore. If this is a problem, try replacing the damaged area with siding panels from a less visible part of the home and then putting the non-matching siding where not as many people will see it.
A new product in residential siding is called Cement Fiber. It’s durable, low maintenance and is made from recycled materials. You can install cement fiber in complex configuration and patterns, although you will have to pay about an additional 10% for materials and installation.
Gutters on your home aren’t necessarily the most fun thing to spend money on, but they are important. Effective gutters are designed to carry destructive water away from your home, but failing gutters will dump water where it can cause the most harm, including roof rot, basement flooding and even foundation erosion.
If you have to replace your gutters in Laurinburg, you’re looking at an average cost of about $1,350. Most homeowners can expect to pay between $897 and $1,845, with a low-end cost of $500 and a high-end cost of $2,400.
One addition you may want to add to your new gutters is gutter guards. These plastic or metal mesh screens keep leaves and other debris from blocking your gutters and preventing the flow of water. They can also keep unwanted animal visitors from causing problems too. To find out more about gutter installation, give us a quick call or fill out the contact form and we’ll respond quickly.
Garage doors are an area where you don’t want to mess around on your own. Because of their sheer size and weight, any issues can quickly cause greater problems, including safety issues for you and your family. If you see any of the signs below, call us to determine if you need a repair or replacement:
- The garage door only closes part way – this means the track can be warped or loose.
- The door won’t move up and down well – the means the springs are worn and probably need to be replaced.
- The metal cables that connect the springs are frayed – this could make the door fall on someone.
- The brackets connected to the cables are loose – the door could come off and hurt someone.
- The garage door sensors aren’t working properly – this could cause an injury as well.
The average repair cost for garage door problems in Laurinburg is around $250. Most homeowners spend between $150 and $330, with $80 on the low end and $500 on the high end. If you must buy an entirely new door, the cost will be about $1,150, with most homeowners paying between $925 and $1,370, with $700 on the low side and $1,653 on the high side.
The climate in North Carolina is fairly mild. Winter temperatures dip down into the 30s for a low in January and February, but that’s about as low as they generally go. Roofing should not be done in the 30s but as long as the temperature reaches near 50 degrees, shingles can warm up enough to seal and installation should be fine. Siding is best done in the fall to avoid extremes of hot and cold that can cause the siding to expand and contract. Because the climate is mild, roof and siding installation can happen almost year-round in Laurinburg.
