A competent and professional roofing contractor will conduct ongoing inspections as the work on your project progresses. Once your new roof is complete, the contractor should examine the workmanship carefully before signing off on the job. A reputable contractor understands that their name is only as good as the work they do, and is therefore highly motivated to get your job done right.
We cannot emphasize enough the value in taking the time to find the right professional roofing contractor. The installation of your new roofing system can vary tremendously and will vary based on which roofing system is selected, your specific residence or building, your local area, local labor costs and the time of year you choose to get the project completed. It can be a good idea to get a few proposals from reputable roofing contractors in your area. Remember, price is just one factor in your decision. It should be balanced with the quality of the materials, workmanship and reputation. A new roofing system is a significant expense and mistakes can be costly and are not easily fixed. It is worth taking the time to properly educate yourself and find a professional contractor who will deliver on their promises to you.
When purchasing a new roof, don’t forget to:
1.Get several bids from reputable local roofing contractors.
2.Get customer and manufacturer references and check them.
3.Before choosing a contractor, make sure bids include the same work scope so you can really look at exactly what you are getting for the price. Remember – you really do get what you pay for! Subpar materials and poor workmanship can be costly in the long-term.
4.Confirm certificates of insurance, licensing and bonding before your job begins.
5.Insist on name brand materials from major manufacturers with sound warranties (CertainTeed, Firestone, Englert, Classic Metal Roofing Systems, Malarkey, Decra, etc.)
6.Prepare your home appropriately to ensure a smooth installation.
7.Inspect your new roof with your contractor to examine the work.
