Getting new Roanoke roof Installations doesn’t sound like an exciting investment, but your home will look younger, be more preserved, and you won’t have to worry anymore about leaks or damages to your home!
Deciding to get a new roof is a good first step, but now what to do? Lynchburg Roofing has compiled an easy-to-follow checklist for hiring a Roanoke roof installations contractor.
There is so much to consider in this process and we want your roofs to perform and function correctly for many years to come.
We have seen roofs done right and roofs done wrong so make sure your contractor isn’t working in the latter group…
Many companies will send a professional out to give you a free estimate for installing shingles on your home. Read reviews and ask a friend, relative, or neighbor about contractors used in the area to get an idea of who to call. Word of mouth is a great insight into the integrity of a company. Have the checklist below available when the professional is doing the estimate to ensure you have all the information to make an informed and optimal decision about who to hire.
1. Is the roof contractor insured?
You want to make sure that if any damages were to occur on your property that it would be covered hassle free. This gives the contractor and you the peace of mind that no liability is going to hang in limbo while you have your roof torn open.
2. Does the Roanoke company have experience in roof installation?
Many contractors will dabble in roof installation but you want to choose a company that has the experience to ensure a job well done the first time. The experience a company has will also make sure that all the right materials were used to make for a lasting product.
3. Is the professional you speak with about the roof installation kind, open, and willing to answer all your questions?
When a roof services contractor doesn’t want to take the time to kindly answer all your questions about the job being performed it may be a sign that they either don’t have the answers (indicating a lack in experience) or they are trying to hide an answer. In addition, you might look for a contractor who wants to go and checkout your roof up close and personal, instead of guestimate from the ground.
4. Does the installation company have a warranty on the roofs?
Many prominent and secure contracting companies will either guarantee their work or have a warranty of some sort. This is a good sign that the company is confident in their work. It is much more comforting to hire a installer that takes pride in their work and is not worried to guarantee they did what they were supposed to.
5. Will the installer clean up the job site when finished installing the new roof system?
This is a big one. Some installers will replace all the shingles then leave you with a commercialized mess to clean up that takes almost as much time as it did to install the roofs. Ask about the extent to which the installer is going to clean, making sure that your home is left better than when they started. This will save you time and money.
If you get the answers to all these questions answered by at least 2-3 professionals in Roanoke you can be confident that you are choosing the right roof installer for the job.
