Bevercreek ShinglesThis weekend marks the return of the annual Beavercreek Popcorn Festival, and as the season for outdoor festivals winds down, a season of torrent weather is just around the corner. Winter weather can cause significant damage to your Beavercreek home, which is why it’s so critical to ensure that your Beavercreek shingles are up to par before the weather turns frigid.

One of the biggest roadblocks when it comes time to shingle replacement can be the perception that it’s a costly repair. However, when put into perspective, it’s a lot less costly than you might think. Your roof guards what is likely your greatest investment—your house—from snow, hail, and the dreaded, Ohio freezing rain. Even so, your roof costs, on average, three percent of your home’s total price.

At the other end of the spectrum, many homeowners don’t know what the cost of a new roof should be and for good reason. It’s nothing like buying a pack of gum. Estimates can vary widely, and it’s enticing to give up or gravitate toward the lowest price.

A good starting point is right online. A great free resource and starting point to estimate how much shingle replacement will cost is the calculator at http://www.roofcalc.org/. The calculator will assist you in assessing the fair market rate on your Beavercreek home’s shingle replacement. Below are the metrics used to generate an estimate of the cost.
