Roof Replacement


4 Things To Keep In Mind If You Are About To Replace Your Roof

Replacing your roof is a huge home improvement project. Though it is necessary and should never be put off, the reality is that it is one of the most expensive home maintenance costs that often takes a bit of time to be completed.

If you are about to replace your roof, it is essential to the success of the project that you know all of the factors going into this major roofing project. This will help you prepare for costs, timing, and expectation for the project.

Here are the 4 key things that you should keep in mind before (and during) your roof replacement:

The Roofer Matters

Regardless of materials and season, the best roof replacement job is dependent on the skill, experience, and workmanship of the roofing contractor you decide to hire. Therefore, it is essential that you do your research before choosing your roofer. Be sure to check your roofer’s certifications, years of experience in the industry, reviews, and more. Turnbull Roofing have been providing high-quality roofing services throughout the Durham region for over 35 years.

Repair or Replace

The decision to either repair or replace your roof is a difficult one. To make the best choice, consider your objective: Are you looking to update the aesthetic of your home? Does your home have major damage or slight damage throughout? How old is your existing roof? Depending on what you want or need, a repair job may be an option for you rather than a complete roof replacement. If you don’t know the right answer for your roof job, speak to your roofing company. Turnbull Roofing is here to provide you with the best advice for your home!


There are many different types of materials you can use on your roof, but the choice of which you will go with is dependent on your aesthetic, protection, and roof lifespan goals. High grade materials will cost more than others; however, these materials will have a longer lifespan and will often come with a warranty period. A roofing job is not one that you want to take on often so be sure to choose materials that will last.

Clean Up

After your roofing project has been completed, be sure to inspect the area to ensure that it has been properly cleaned and tidied up. A professional roofer should never leave spare materials or stray parts lying about as it is a potential danger to people living in the home.
