Finding the right professional roofer may be extremely stressful because you don’t know the capability of each company, but once you do find the right company get ready for the application process. With these tips it will help you get through your experience a lot smoother. First of all, have your contractor list the roofing manufacturers with which his or her firm has licensed or approved applicator agreements. Some materials require special application expertise to achieve a quality finished roof system.
Second, insist on a written proposal and examine it for complete descriptions of the work and specifications. Be sure the proposal includes the approximate starting and completion dates, payment procedures and any additional issues, such as landscape damage prevention and debris cleanup.
Lastly, there are two basic categories of roofing warranties: a contractor’s warranty that covers workmanship and a manufacturer’s warranty that covers materials. Be sure your contractor offers a warranty that covers workmanship. A manufacturer’s warranty alone will not protect you if the roof system is installed improperly. Carefully read and understand any roofing warranty offered and watch for provisions that would void it.
