Having a dependable roof is a staple of an adequate living environment. There are many signs that it is time for a new roof. If shingles are curling this indicates weathering has occurred, and leaks may happen as a result. If your roof looks like a checkerboard you should have that fixed. Missing shingles warrant a completely new roof if it is impossible to find new shingles to match your existing roof color. If your roof physically appears fine but is over 20 years old, there can be problems that are not visible. Any of these situations will tell you that it is time to consider getting a roofing contractor.
Selecting a roofing contractor is an important decision, as they will have a direct impact on the quality of your new roof. When searching for a contractor there are many factors to keep in mind. Make sure the contractor has a physical office located nearby. This allows you to feel comfortable in maintaining a line of open and direct communication throughout the roof evaluation process. It is also a good idea to see if the roofing contractor is licensed, insured, and bonded. The license ensures that the contractor is expertly trained and knows what they are doing. The insurance protects you and your home, in the case there is damage or a worker is injured during the job. Before hiring make sure to ask for copies of their roofing license and insurance certificate for verification. Make sure that the roofing contractor offers a warranty. If no warranty is given and something goes wrong during the process, you may be stuck paying for another new roof. After striking a deal with a contractor, carefully read your contract for assurance that a warranty is included. A list of references is also valuable information to have if applicable. You can check to see if past customers were pleased with the results they received. It is also beneficial to have written estimates provided. This will give you a detailed proposal on everything that will happen. This means that you will be able to stay informed throughout the process.
It is also crucial to know the difference between an estimate and an inspection. The estimate will let you know how much a certain issue will cost to repair. An estimate is typically reserved for those who are aware that their roof is damaged. If you want to check the condition of your roof, you will need an inspection. The contractor will look for problems or they will let you know how much longer the roof may last.
