The cost of roof replacements can vary depending on a number of factors. For example, financing a new tile roofing system can be a little more expensive than getting an asphalt shingle roof. The labor cost for the installation will also play a crucial role. As always, cash is king when it comes to paying for a new roof, or any other remodeling project for that matter. Unfortunately, paying full in cash isn’t always an option for many homeowners.
First, you have to decide whether you want to finance your roof replacement through your roofing contractor, or through your existing financial institution. Going through with your contractor has the benefit of convenience as you have to deal with only one party for all your payments. Here is a short guide from our experts at Earl W. Johnston Roofing on how to get started budgeting for your roof replacement.
HELOC stands for home equity line of credit. The amount of equity you have depends on how much of your mortgage you have left to pay so older homes tend to have higher HELOCs. This can be helpful when paying for particularly costly materials such as a metal roofing system. You can apply for a HELOC with your current bank that handles your mortgage payments or through other accredited financing companies.
