The Basics of a Residential Roof Replacement

While there are some home repair jobs that handy homeowners can take on themselves, roof repair isn’t one. Letting a roofing contractor come in and replace the roof means stepping back from taking control and letting someone else handle all the details. That can be easier once you understand what happens during a residential roofing replacement.


Asphalt shingles may be the most common roofing material used, but they are far from your only choice. Metal roofs are coming back into fashion; their higher price point is offset by their lifespan, which can be four times as long as an asphalt roof. At Brandstetter’s KangaRoof, we offer a selection of high-quality roofing materials, and we’re always happy to speak with you about which products we would recommend for your home and why.


You want to trust any contractor who’s going to be at your house daily. While Ohio does not require that homeowners use a professional roofing contractor, we recommend it. The risks of going without a professional are simply too great: If they don’t install the roof properly, it won’t perform as intended and unfortunately the manufacturer won’t honor their warranty due to installation error. A professional roofing contractor will do the job the right way the first time in an efficient manner, which protects your home and saves you money in the long run.

At Brandstetter’s KangaRoof, all of our roofing technicians are highly experienced professionals with a passion for the roofing business and the knowledge and training to do the job correctly.


Since the roof protects your home from environmental damage, a roof replacement is not something that you can delay for very long. Your home will take on additional damage, potentially water damage or mold, both of which can be expensive to fix.

It’s hard to cite a precise cost for residential roof replacement, because the figure depends on roofing material, size of your roof, and slope or pitch of your roof. Brandstetter’s Kanga Roof can assist you with applying for financing so you can get the roof work you need without worrying about costs.
