THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO GETTING A NEW ROOF
Without a roof, even the nicest house is uninhabitable. Unfortunately, roof issues happen and they can be a costly repair.
The keys to getting a new roof lie in the material you choose, the repair you need, and the roofer you hire.
That means the roofs have had the same climate, weather events, and general wear. There are other variables, but if you see your neighbor getting a new roof, it’s time to start checking yours.
These are shingles made of fiberglass-reinforced asphalt. There are tons of varieties in style and the price also ranges, though it’s typically the least expensive option. These are the most commonly used and we’ll touch on them later.
- ● Does the new roofing perform as it should?
- ● Did the contractor start the job and complete the work on time as agreed upon?
- ● Did they make any mistakes and how did they fix them?
- ● Did they stay within the estimate they quoted you?
- ● Better Business Bureau
- ● Google Reviews
- ● Yelp Reviews
- ● Interview the three contractors. Ask them specifically about their experience with the roofing material you are choosing and the slope of your roof.
- ● Drive by a couple of roofs they’ve recently done. They should be able to provide you with a sample of their work, like in any industry.
- ● See their licensing and insurance documents for yourself. If you have any questions or need clarification, make sure to ask.
- ● Ask them about a labor warranty to go along with the material warranty. You shouldn’t choose anyone who won’t agree to at least a 12-month labor warranty.
- ● Make sure you are completely clear on their time-frame for starting and completing your roof.
