Asphalt roofs are the most affordable and popular roofing material. In North Carolina, asphalt roofing season is longer than in the northern parts of the country. This gives you more time to get the roof best suited for your home and budget. Asphalt is by no means the only option. Wood shakes, metal, tile, and slate are all options for homeowners looking to update their roof.
Replacing a roof increases your home’s value and curb appeal. Many homeowners are hesitant to do so because the cost seems so high. Replacing a roof in Southern Pine with a quality roof from a professional roofing company costs an average of $8,011, with most homeowners spending between $5,261 and $10,761. The cost fluctuates depending on several factors. The roof size determines how much roofing material is required to complete the job. More material costs more. The pitch of the roof, or how steep it is, also determines how much material is needed. A steeper roof requires more material than a flatter roof. The material itself varies in price, with asphalt being the cheapest roofing option. Local code requirements and the number of chimneys, skylights, plumbing, and other roof fixtures also affect price.
Not every roof needs replacing. Repairing a roof is cheaper than replacing one. Repairs average $433 in the Southern Pine area, with homeowners spending between $269 and $621 on average. Determining whether a roof needs a repair or a replacement is not always clear. Give us a call or fill out our convenient online contact form to get professional advice regarding your roof.
Your roof protects your house from the elements, and so does your siding. Siding is like a shell. It keeps your house safe from weather and insect damage while also helping to insulate it from heat and cold. Damaged, faulty, or old siding is not just an eyesore. It can lead to other, more expensive problems like mold, rot, and insect infestations. Chances are high that the siding on your home requires replacing at least once over a lifetime. Before you replace it, you need to know what your options are.
House siding comes in several materials. Vinyl, metal, wood, brick, stone, liquid spray-on, insulated siding, and composite siding are all possibilities for your home. Vinyl siding is the most affordable option and is also low maintenance. Cleaning your vinyl siding is as simple as getting out the hose or pressure washer. Plus, vinyl siding does not require fresh coats of paint and does not rot. Wood siding, on the other hand, is aesthetically pleasing but high maintenance. Wood requires frequent painting and replacement. Wood deteriorates faster than synthetic materials like vinyl or composite. It is sometimes cheaper to install than vinyl. Brick and stone provide great insulation, are long lasting, look beautiful, and come at a much higher price than other materials. Few homeowners have the masonry skills to repair brick and stone themselves, so a professional is needed for any work.
The cost of replacing or repairing your siding is determined by the size of your home and the material you choose. Larger homes with a larger square footage measurement cost more to side than smaller homes. If you have a large home and a small budget, vinyl is the most practical option. Homeowners with small homes and larger budgets might consider a higher quality material with better insulating qualities.
Replacing a roof and siding is pointless if your gutters don’t work properly. Water damage from faulty gutters results in water damage to your new siding and house foundation. Water damage leads to issues with mold and structural integrity that are costly to repair. Gutters, on the other hand, are an affordable, easy fix. Southern Pine receives an average of 48.9 inches of rain each year. This is higher than the national average of 37 inches. Working gutters are important.
The first step towards functional gutters and downspouts is cleanliness. Cleaning your gutters is not fun, but it is necessary. The average cost for cleaning gutters in the Southern Pine area is $205 dollars. This is significantly less than the cost of replacement. Gutters require replacement with age. Keeping them clean prolongs their life and protects your home from water damage.
Replacing your gutters costs $1,346 on average, typically ranging from $897 to $1,845. This is higher than the national average of $897. Gutters come in vinyl, aluminum, steel, and copper. Vinyl is the cheapest option and copper is the most expensive. For help determining the gutter replacement or repair options for your home, give us a call.
There are several reasons to consider repairing or replacing a garage door. Updating and repairing garage doors makes your home look more attractive. Faulty or damaged garage doors are unsafe and poorly insulated garage doors let out the heated air in the winter and let cool air escape in the summer. Replacing a garage door nationally averages $1,061, with homeowners typically spending between $742 and $1,413. If this cost seems high, consider that a new door yields about 84% in resale value. The cost of a new door includes new tracks and fixtures. You also should consider installing a door with pinch and tamper resistance for personal safety.
The Southern Springs climate is well suited for home repair. With a short winter season with temperatures dropping only to 33 degrees on average in January, the rest of the year is perfect for repair projects. 213 out of 365 days are sunny and the average rainfall is only slightly higher than the national average. This means that there are plenty of days for roofers and siding installers to work.
Replacing and repairing your roof, siding, gutters, and garage door does not have to be stressful. You now have the information you need to determine your budget and start planning for that new roof.
