Choose the Slow Season
The busiest time for roofers is from late summer into the fall. People who need a new roof will often have one installed during this time as they prepare for winter. It means that contractors are busier and you may be charged a premium. You can get a better price by getting at roof replacement in the spring or early summer.
Buy Before the Price Increase
Manufacturers of roofing materials usually set their prices once a year, often in the late spring. Prices for roofing materials have steadily risen over the last few years. Book your roofing project before the price increase to get better rates.
Coupons and Special Deals
Watch the local papers for special deals or coupons. Many Oklahoma City contractors offer coupons during the slow period to drive business. You can also ask if you qualify for any discounts.
Your insurance company will not pay for a new roof to replace one failing as a result of age, but they will pay for replacing a roof with hail or storm damage. Talk to your roofing contractor to find out if your roof qualifies, and then talk to your insurance company about filing a claim.
Higher Quality Roof
It may seem counterproductive to spend more money on a roof, but the right roof can lower your utility bills. Consider installing a metal roof to substantially lower heating and cooling bills. While you will pay more for the attractive new roof, you recover part of that expense through lower utility expenses.
