As a homeowner, there are certain repairs or replacements that can become major projects.
They include new HVAC installation, fixing old pipes, roof replacement, and more.
And although these upgrades are not things that we want to dwell on, they are certainly important to the upkeep of our homes. These repairs and fixes are normally pricey and require some extra effort on our part. Between contacting the insurance company, filing claims, and even accommodating the contractors, homeowners have a big role in making sure home maintenance is done properly. So, when I realized that my roof needed to be replaced, I immediately jumped into action. I discovered that I needed my roof replaced after I noticed that some of my neighbors were installing new roofs. As with anything on a house, there is an expiration date. And the life span of my shingled roof is typically between 18 and 25 years. And I can tell you, the house that I live in was built in 1999, and it never had a roof replacement. Since it’s approaching the 25-year mark, a roof replacement made sense to me. As a fairly recent homeowner, who has never done a roof replacement, I wasn’t sure of the process, so I contacted my insurance company. The insurance representative walked me through the entire process including the deductible, inspections, and more. Anyway, I will have my roof replaced soon and the good news is, I won’t need to worry about this for another 25 years. At least that is what I am hoping for.
