Learn More About Planning Your Roof Replacement

It’s tough for you, a homeowner, to know what to expect when it comes to replacing your roof. How much will it cost? Do you need a permit for a roof replacement? Where do you begin? When the time comes to replace your roof, you’ll want to take the necessary steps to make sure it is done correctly. 

With the help of JW Roofing, you can rest assured the work will be done well. We have been serving Dayton for years with superior craftsmanship that has been the cornerstone of our success. Our team of experts can walk you through every step of the way and help you make informed decisions about your roof.

Deciding Between a Repair or a Replacement

Before opting for a replacement, we recommend ruling out a repair. Many types of roof damage can be addressed with a professional roof repair and add years to the life of your roof. However, there are instances where a complete roof replacement is the appropriate choice. You might strongly consider replacing your roof if:

  • Your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan.
  • The cost of the repairs will compare to the cost of a replacement.
  • Your roof has sustained severe, widespread damage.

If you’re on the fence, schedule an inspection with your roofing contractor. The experts at JW Roofing offer professional roofing inspections so you know whether a roof repair or replacement would best serve you long term.

Do You Need a Permit for a Roof Replacement in Dayton?

Now that you’ve decided what work needs to be done on your home, you’ll need to ensure you’re meeting all the legal requirements for the project. In Dayton, you don’t always need a permit to complete a roof replacement. 

For example, simply replacing a layer of shingles or adding a new layer typically won’t require one. However, if your roof replacement includes replacing more structural components of your roof, you will need a Dayton roofing permit.

Luckily, your Dayton roofer can (and should!) apply for the permit on your behalf.

I’ve Decided on a Roof Replacement, but Where Do I Begin?

The first step of the roof replacement process is to find a roofing contractor you can trust. Look for a company who is local, experienced and has the necessary credentials. Local companies like us are invested members of your community. We are a family-owned, full-service company who has been serving folks in Dayton for years. 

The fun begins after finding a company you can trust. Here are a few big decisions you’ll make during the roof replacement process:

  1. Determine how much you’re willing to spend on your new roof. A new roof is a big investment. Before work begins you’ll want to establish a budget with your roofing contractor. We at JW Roofing understand that a complete roof replacement does not fall within everyone’s budget. We have teamed up with Synchrony Financial to offer affordable roof financing options. Starting as low as $97 a month, qualifying homeowners can finance their complete roof replacement with Synchrony.
  2. Explore the roofing materials available to choose. A number of factors come into play when picking the type of roofing material you want. You’ll want to consider the weather you face in the area as well as your personal style. In recent years, metal roofing has become very popular. Metal roofing is durable and long-lasting, with an expected lifespan of up to 50 years. JW Roofing is proud to offer metal roofing with the same unmatched craftsmanship we’ve offered with other roofing applications. Our metal roofing is highly customizable, coming in a range of colors and looks to suit the style of your home.
  3. Discuss a timeline with your roofing contractor. Determining a timeline for your project is important. The amount of time needed will depend on the scale of your project. Larger projects, like a teardown and replacement, may take a few days to complete. You can decide on a timeline that suits your schedule with your roofing contractors.
