Roof Replacement Program

In an effort to stop solar companies from installing panels on deficient roofs, our projects require there is a minimum 10 year service warranty required in order to qualify. Due to this implementation the roof replacement program was created in order to help homeowners feel comfortable with their solar installation without worry of leaks effecting their roof integrity.

This program installs a GAF roof with a 50 year warranty that won't be voided by panel installation and will provide the benefit of max life expectancy of the panel system.

Learn About Different Roofing Costs

Roofing materials vary in their characteristics and costs. In this discussion, we will explore several commonly used options along with their respective expenses. For the purpose of our calculations, we will consider a roof replacement cost for a 1,200 sq ft area.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofs offer durability, insulation during winter, and cooling benefits in summer. However, they tend to have a higher price tag. For a 1,200 sq ft area, the average cost of a metal roof can range from $7,200 to $19,800. In New Jersey, you can expect the cost to be around $11,289 to $14,827.

Asphalt Roofing

Asphalt is a commonly used roofing material with a lifespan of 15 to 30 years, depending on the climate. It is lightweight and versatile. In New Jersey, the cost of replacing a 1,200 sq ft roof with asphalt shingles is approximately $3,194. The price of asphalt shingles typically falls between $200 and $330 per roof square.

Wood Shake Roofing

Wood shake roofs have a natural and rustic appearance that appeals to some homeowners. They also provide good insulation. However, they require regular maintenance. In New Jersey, the cost of wood shake roofing for a 1,200 sq ft area ranges from $7,984 to $10,493, assuming proper maintenance.

Synthetic Materials

Synthetic roofing materials, such as rubber or plastic alternatives to wood shakes, offer benefits like lightweight construction, durability, and aesthetic appeal. However, they are generally more expensive than other roofing options. In New Jersey, the cost of a roof replacement using synthetic materials is approximately $20,000.

What To Look For From Contractors

Choosing the right contractor is a crucial step, but it doesn't have to be complex. Take the time to research and consider these factors before finalizing your decision. With thorough investigation, you can ensure a successful collaboration with a reliable contractor.

Verify Licensing

Ensure that the contractor you choose holds a valid license. Working with a licensed contractor ensures that your roofing work will be carried out by trained professionals. It is important, especially when installing solar panels, as improper installation can be hazardous. You can verify a contractor's license in New Jersey by using the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs' verification tool. Alternatively, you can contact the division at 973-504-6370 for confirmation.

Look for Lifetime Guarantees

Look for contractors who offer lifetime guarantees on their work. Such guarantees provide assurance that the contractor will rectify any issues that arise in the future. A contractor's willingness to provide a lifetime guarantee reflects their confidence in their work. In some cases, you may even have the opportunity to transfer the warranty to the next homeowner if you sell your property.

Transparency Matters

Choose a contractor who prioritizes open communication and transparency. A good contractor will discuss every aspect of your roof replacement or repair, including timelines and associated costs. You should feel confident that there won't be any surprise expenses, and the contractor should ensure that you fully understand the entire process. If there are any unfamiliar terms or pricing components, the contractor should be able to explain them clearly.

Read Reviews

Gather insights from other homeowners by reading online reviews on platforms like Yelp, Google, and Facebook. While a single negative review may not indicate a contractor's suitability, pay attention to how the contractor responds to such feedback. Professionalism and responsiveness are key factors to consider. Additionally, you can check a contractor's rating with the Better Business Bureau, a reputable source that accredits businesses based on rigorous standards and provides ratings based on reviews and complaints.
