Questions Many Homeowners Often Forget to Ask Roofers


As you search for the best contractor for your roof replacement project, make sure that you ask the right questions. This can spell the difference between making the most of the investment and not being able to do so. However, many homeowners often forget to ask roofers all the questions they should.

Today, Bone Dry Roofing, your local Lafayette, IN roofing company, lists some of these commonly forgotten roof-related questions.

“Will My New Roof Have Enough Ventilation?”

Proper roof ventilation is something that shouldn’t be ignored. After all, it plays an important role in your roof’s health, performance, and longevity. By improving it during the roof replacement, attic temperatures are regulated in the summer while moisture is minimized in the winter. Be sure to ask your contractor about this key aspect of your roofing system, particularly the type and number of vents your new roof will be getting. Ridge vents, box vents, and other types of ventilation, should be discussed, but find out what the best type of ventilation for your roof is.

“Should I Get New Gutters?”

A functioning gutter system keeps your home safe from water damage by channeling all the rainwater to the downspouts and then to storm drains a few meters away from your property. However, if the gutters are already misaligned or are in poor condition, know that they won’t bode well with your newly-installed roof. Consider getting new gutters alongside your roof replacement. Bone Dry Roofing can take measurements and provide a free estimate for a new gutter and downspout system.

“Are There Energy-Efficient Options for My New Roof?”

During your roof replacement consultation, don’t forget to ask the contractor about the energy-efficient roofing material options they can offer. With this type of roofing system installed, your HVAC system won’t have to work exceptionally hard to keep your home interior comfortable, helping you lower your energy consumption. Consider cool roofs, which are made of materials that don’t easily absorb the sun’s heat and are easy to maintain.

At Bone Dry Roofing, we will provide you with a high-quality roofing system that will give you peace of mind. There are many reasons to install a new roof, which is why our expert roofers will inspect your roof and help you decide if replacing it is necessary and worth the investment. Bone Dry Roofing is an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor, which means we can provide one of the best total protection roofing systems in the industry, with the warranties to match.
