Budgeting Basics

A Guide to Roof Budgeting Services

People often approach roof budgeting with simple guesswork: start with last year’s expenses and add 10%-15%. But this omits valuable information that helps establish a realistic budget. It helps to ask yourself the following questions about your property:

  1. Exactly what type of roof is on your property?

  2. Will more repairs increasingly be needed, and if so, how quickly?

  3. Are certain areas of the roof experiencing more problems than others?

  4. Were previously repaired leaks located in the filed or at the flashings?

  5. Can I protect myself from roofing trouble in the future?

  6. How many years can we expect the property’s roof to last?

  7. Should I budget for emergency repairs, and if so, how much?

  8. Should I budget for preventative maintenance, and if so, how much?

  9. Should I budget for roof replacement, if necessary?
