You don’t have to look too hard to realize how rapidly, and substantially, the cost of home improvement materials are rising. In just the past year, the price of essentials such as lumber, vinyl, steel, roofing materials and others have skyrocketed to almost unheard of levels. If you’re among the many homeowners who are considering or planning a residential home remodeling project, one of the smartest things you can do is to schedule it as early as possible. Waiting until the last minute can result in higher costs, delays, or a combination of the two.
At Northside Roofing and Home Remodeling in Rochester, smart purchasing practices and long-time partnerships with our suppliers has helped us keep the cost of building materials affordable for those we serve. Here are just a few of the projects we recommend scheduling in advance if you’re concerned with the cost of increased material prices.
- Roof replacement, section repairs or new roofing systems
- Siding, including vinyl siding as well as wood and premium composite
- Whole-house window replacements, especially custom windows
- Doors, including residential entry doors, patio doors and garage doors
- Room additions requiring any significant amount of lumber and hardware
- Skylights, though not as severe, prices do seem to be gradually increasing
The last thing we want to do is get anyone into a panic over material prices, or worse yet, discourage our fellow homeowners from completely putting off their project. We’ve established excellent relationships with many of our suppliers, and have been able to help keep costs manageable. But like you, we can’t predict the future, making it important to lock in prices now if you’re on a budget and looking to keep things economical. For more information on this or to discuss your project ideas, get in touch today and we’ll be happy to help.
