Adrienne Z. MilliganMost people, myself included, want to save money. Sometimes it feels like there are parts of life where saving money is just not feasible. When it comes to home improvement repairs and projects, do you try to save money? Somehow saving money can be construed as being cheap or using lesser quality materials.

Is this always the case? I don’t think so.

When it comes to home repair and improvement projects, I want to save on costs without sacrificing quality or not doing everything which needs to be done. It is possible to do both.

Here are five ways to save money on the roof without breaking the bank account:

1. Know what you want for your roof before calling for estimates. Are you wanting to replace your roof or just repair it? Do you need a repair due to a leak in the ceiling, tree damage, or gutter problems? Take a look at your roof from outside to see if you can spot other issues before you call. If you are unsure if it needs a full replacement, write it down as your first question. Visit your local home improvement store to see if they offer on-site design assistance. Ask what services they may provide, look at roof material options, and price ranges. If a neighbor or friend recently had their roof replaced or repaired, ask which roofer they used and if they would refer them to you.
