Fixing or replacing a roof is expensive. It is also the single most important thing a homeowner can do to increase home value, curb appeal, and his or her own comfort. The average roof costs between $5,261 and $10,761 to install or replace. This price fluctuates depending on several factors. Homeowners pay anywhere from $2,365 to $14,000 for new roofs. The factors that influence the price to replace your roof are roof size, pitch, application, materials, code requirements, region, and the number of chimneys, skylights, or other roof adornments.
Asphalt shingles are the cheapest and most common roofing material. Wood shakes, metal, tile and slate roofs are available for a higher price. Wood shakes are attractive but prone to fire, insect damage, and weather deterioration. Metal, tile, and slate roofs are long lasting alternatives to asphalt that come at a higher price.
Replacing a roof is not always straightforward. Removing the old roof sometimes reveals additional problems. Rotting timbers need to be replaced. A professional roofer knows what to look for and helps homeowners make the right decisions regarding the roof over their heads. Barring major structural damage, a roof replacement takes between 3 to 4 days. This includes removing the old roof and installing the new one.
Siding protects your home from the elements. Faulty, damaged, or old siding decreases the value of your home, the curb appeal and invites insect and weather damage into your home. Replacing the siding on your home costs $6,927 to $12,534 in Spring Lake. The low end of the price range is $5,000 and the high is $14,000, similar to the pricing for a new roof. This is because like a roof, siding protects your home from the elements.
Homeowners looking to save money and spend less time on maintenance prefer vinyl siding. Vinyl lasts a long time and does not require new paint. The material is rot resistant and is easy to clean with a garden hose or power washer. Vinyl is not the only option. Metal, wood, brick, stone, composite, insulated, and liquid spray on siding are all viable options for your home. For help choosing the siding option best suited for your house and budget, feel free to give us a call or request more information with our contact form.
There is little point to fixing a roof if a homeowner’s gutters are left in bad shape. Gutters channel rainwater and runoff away from house walls and the foundation. Leaking, sagging gutters are more than an eyesore. They are damaging to the structural integrity of the home. Water damages siding and your home’s foundation, creating larger problems down the road.
Sagging gutters are easy to fix with gutter hangers, which start at $1.72 each. These hangers correct the angle of the gutter. Not every gutter is salvageable. If you are replacing your roof, chances are your gutters need replacing too. On average, gutters cost $1,346 to replace in Spring Lake, NC. The price is dependent on the size of your home and the materials used. Gutters are available in vinyl, aluminum, steel, and copper. Vinyl is the cheapest and copper is the priciest. The quality of the material reflects the price. Aluminum is more expensive and higher quality than vinyl, steel is more expensive and higher quality than aluminum, and copper is the highest quality and by far the most expensive.
Clean gutters last longer than clogged gutters. Take the time to properly maintain your new gutters to ensure you get the most bang for your buck. Give us a call or fill out our convenient online contact form for more information about gutter repair or replacement.
A faulty garage door is frustrating and dangerous. Old, out of date garage doors detract from your home’s value. Garage door repairs and replacements are affordable in Spring Lake. Most homeowners pay $250 on average to repair a garage door and $1,150 to replace it entirely.
The cost of replacing a garage door seems steep, but it includes new tracks and new fasteners and connectors. Replacing a garage door presents an opportunity to increase your garage’s energy efficiency. Garages attached to homes need proper insulation to prevent heat loss during the winter. Look for high R-values when selecting insulation. Choosing a door with pinch and tamper resistance decreases the potential for injury and is a good idea for every home, especially those with small children.
Spring Lake’s warm climate makes roofing and siding repair possible most of the year. Roofing requires temperatures of 50 degrees Fahrenheit for asphalt shingles to seal properly. This is good news for NC residents. With winter temperatures averaging at 33 degrees in January and a short, mild winter season, roof repairs do not have to wait until the summer. Give us a call today to see if temperatures are suitable for your home’s repair needs.
