Tip Tuesday: How to Budget for a New Roof

Budgeting for a new roof can be a daunting task for homeowners across Kitsap County. Here are 5 steps to help you prepare for the cost of a new roof.

  1. Determine the size of your roof: The first step in budgeting for a new roof is to determine the size of your roof. This will help you estimate the number of materials you'll need and the cost of installation.

  2. Research materials and labor costs: Once you have the size of your roof, research the cost of materials and labor for the type of roof you want. This will help you create a realistic budget.

  3. Get multiple quotes: It's important to get multiple quotes from reputable roofing contractors. This will help you compare prices and ensure you're getting a fair deal.

  4. Consider financing options: If the cost of a new roof is more than you can afford upfront, consider financing options such as a home equity loan or a personal loan. Rainy Day Exteriors also provides financing options. Let us know if you're interested during your free inspection and estimate.

  5. Plan for the unexpected: It's important to plan for unexpected expenses such as repairs or additional materials. Budgeting for these expenses ahead of time can help you avoid financial surprises down the road. We recommend having 10-15% of the overall cost of the roof for unexpected repairs.
