My home suffered damage from a severe hail storm this year. It broke out our two street facing windows and our upstairs window. It totaled the exterior of our cars and even destroyed the rosebushes my wife had tried to keep alive through the summer. And the hail damaged roof? The roof was wrecked, even I could tell that and I am no roofing expert.
Licensed roofers do excellent work as well. Many are so confident in their skills that they will guarantee it in writing. As long as you don’t get on your roof and start swinging an axe, they’ll repair any damage for 10, 15, 20, 30 years or more depending on what they guarantee. Yes, they will put it in writing.
This may come as a surprise but you are probably not the only one who has a house. Anyone who owns a home will need their roof repaired and patched up every 20 years. Why not ask them who they went with and if they were satisfied? Did they feel like they completed the job in a timely fashion or did they take forever? Was the modified bitumen roofing el paso that they picked pleasant to work with? How was their customer service department and did they answer all questions and complaints in an acceptable way? Even though the job was done right, was the price fair?
Like with most businesses that deal in construction, there are a lot of small fish out there that would just love to get work from you. In return for your cold hard cash, they’re going to give you a below par job.
One vendor had a Plinko game going (you know, like the “Price is Right”) Fill out an info card and get a try to win prizes ranging from nothing to a cheap keychain to a free lift ticket.
There is only one type of business that pays higher insurance rates than roofing contractors and that is coal mining. What this means is that if you are looking for a dangerous type of work that you’re odds of getting injured doing are high, then welcome to roofing. Also being that you’re inexperienced your odds are even higher.
Finally, remember that you’re looking for a professional who’ll get your job done right, but you also need somebody who’s easy to talk to. Make sure you can communicate with your roofing contractor and everything will go as smoothly as possible.
