The average cost of installing a completely new roof on your home in Pinehurst is around $8,000, with most homeowners paying between $5,200 and $10,800. This is higher than the national average of $6,750, with most people paying between $4,500 and $8,700. The average time to complete a roofing job (including tearing out the old and installing the new) is 3-4 days, depending on the size of the home and the size of the crew on the job.
One of the biggest decisions you’ll make with a new roof is the kind of shingles you want to use. The best choice for you will depend on your taste and your budget for installation and continuing maintenance. Asphalt shingles are the most common type in America and generally cost less than other options. Wood shake shingles provide a beautiful look but are very high-maintenance. They also cost more than asphalt, but less than options such as tile (easy to customize) and slate (a long-lasting, natural look). Metal roofs probably last the longest, so their high cost works best for homeowners whose goal is to remain in their home for a very long period of time.
Siding repair work in Pinehurst costs homeowners an average of $400 (the total amount spent is usually between $212 and $587), while the average cost to put brand new siding on a home in the same area is more than $9,700, with most jobs falling between $6,900 and $12,500.
The amount of siding repair necessary will depend on the extent of the damage. If areas underneath the siding are too rotten to hold a nail firmly, those areas will have to be replaced first. This repair doesn’t have to be pretty since siding will cover it – even a piece of plywood will do. Most contractors will also install building paper over the wood and under the siding to increase the waterproofing. Make sure any siding quote you obtain includes those elements.
When you get worried every time it rains because you know your gutters will be leaking in several places, it’s time to think about installing new gutters on your home. In Pinehurst, you can expect to pay $1,346 for a full set of new gutters. Most gutter installation jobs in the area end up between about $900 and $1,850, which is slightly higher than the national average of about $900.
As you decide about hiring a gutter installer, remember that all gutters are either seamless or sectional. Professional installers will use one giant strip of gutter – they measure the length of your roof and cut the gutter onsite with a special machine. This keeps your gutters from developing leaks where sections would join together. If you try to install gutters yourself, you’ll have to use sections, which will increase the chance of leakage problems. Add in the safety factor of climbing on your roof, and this is one job where it’s probably best to hire a pro – feel free to call us or fill out the contact form for more info.
Garage door repair in Pinehurst will run an average cost of about $242. Most homeowners pay between $151 and $334, with $80 on the low end and $500 on the high end. A new garage door replacement will raise the average cost to about $1,148, with most customers spending between $925 and $1,371. They pay $700 on the low side and $1,653 on the high side.
If you need a new garage door, think about how long it will last – you want at least five to 10 years from a door. Single-layer doors are the most affordable, but also dent and break more easily. Heavier doors with more insulation cost more in the beginning, but hold up better over the long run.
Garage doors are available in several materials. Custom wood (usually cedar, hemlock or mahogany) are the most expensive, but will last a long time and their natural beauty makes the exterior of your home that much better. A wood composite door is relatively inexpensive, is made from recycled materials and can be painted for customization. Vinyl garage doors look nicer than cheaper steel doors and resist dents well, which makes maintenance easier. Steel doors are the cheapest and most commonly used. You’ll need an R-value of 12 to make sure you can keep the temperature in your garage regulated.
Roofing and siding can take place nearly year-round in North Carolina. Temperatures are so mild (the lows only get down into the 30s in mid-winter) that for most the year, shingles can seal well and siding won’t expand or contract much after installation. This works well for homeowner who need repair work done – they usually don’t have to wait for freezing temperatures to rise.
