Common Hidden Roofing Costs and How to Avoid Them

Replacing or repairing a roof is an investment that will require a significant investment. Therefore, it’s understandable if some homeowners are looking for ways to reduce costs without sacrificing quality. However, it may surprise them to learn that instead of reducing the costs of their project, the overall price might actually increased from quote to finished product. The culprit? Hidden roofing costs.

In this article, the roof leak repair professionals of High Performance Homes reveals common hidden roofing costs and how you can easily avoid them.


Replacing your roof is a smart choice to make if you want to increase your home’s overall value but in the process, you may soon realize that upgrades are necessary in order to improve the performance of the new roof. If you aren’t keen to invest in too many upgrades in your roofing system, ask your contractor on which ones are really needed at the moment and which ones can be put off for now so you can stay in budget.

Bringing Your Roof Up to Code

If your home is decades old, it’s possible that the building codes are no longer up to date. A roof replacement is the perfect time to bring it up to standard. However, keep in mind that despite its sustainability and energy-efficiency benefits, it’s also an added expense. While you can put this off, it’s not a recommended move for homeowners so it’s best that you don’t avoid bringing the roof up to code.

Pests and Mold

On the other hand, if you live in a humid area of the country, it’s very easy for mold and pests to damage your roof’s structural integrity. If you’re replacing your roof, remediating this can easily add to your expenses even without your knowledge. Unlike bringing your roofing system up to code, however, this is an expense that you can avoid as the damage will have to be repaired before the new roof can be installed. Instead, make sure to ask your roofer if there’s mold and pest damage so you can adequately prepare the funds needed to fix it.

For Cameron and everyone, again I say thank you! NW Natural has just recalculated our “equal pay” bill and we’ve gone from $67.00/month to $38.00/month. This is a savings of $348.00 per year plus the electric bill never once exceeded $90.00/month this summer saving us about $300 this year just is savings with the A/C. The windows remain beautiful, functional and more than everything promised! That and a leak free roof, who could ask for anything more! Thanks again!

“This contracting company recently replaced all the windows in my home. All of the associates I interacted with along the way were pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional. The way the windows were installed was done with precision and care for my home, and I did not have to pay any extra for trim around both the outside and inside of the windows. The end result is pleasing to look at, and I can already tell there’s a big difference in how insulated my home is.”
