One of the first things our contractors will do when you call on us is to perform a thorough roof inspection. There are specific things they are looking for so don’t hesitate to point out any issues you know of as well. The checklist below is a sample of a comprehensive inspection:
Broken or missing shingles
Shingles that have begun to buckle
Missing or broken coping on the roof
Any evidence of past work that looks unprofessional
Rotted or molded fascia
Signs inside your home of water damage
Leaks around skylights or windows
Window or skylight seals
Gutters that need to be repaired or replaced
Trees that come to close to your house
Excess debris on the roof
Signs of mold, algae or other fungus on or around the roof
Our expert roofers will take note of any problems they find and make sure you understand all your options for correcting the issues, as well as the cost of the job. If we feel you need to replace your roofing system altogether, we will work with you to get the job done at a price you can afford.
We will listen to all your questions and carefully explain how we came to our decision and why. A little planning on the front end to find the right roofing company will help this process to go smoothly, as you will have reason to trust us!
We provide a yearly inspection with all our roofing services. We know it’s costly to repair or replace your roof, so we want to do all we can to help prevent a major expense down the road. Be sure to ask about warranties too. You might be surprised at how many repairs can be covered by warranties that come with the roof installation. It’s always a good idea to spend the small amount on a good warranty to avoid a huge cost later down the road. In the case of storm damage, you need to have your warranty information in hand and talk to your roofing company as soon as you know of the damage.
Bear in mind that most warranties will cover your roof for 15-30 years, but damage that comes from storms or other inclement weather often is not part of that warranty. Make sure you understand what your warranty covers and make a plan for yearly inspections to be made so your roof stays in top-notch working condition for as long as possible!
