3 Things to Ask Your Local Roofing Company

Roofs don’t last forever, unfortunately. According to Forbes, they should last 30 years at least, but that depends on the roofing material. Is your roof in need of a replacement? Before you go ahead and hire a local roofing company, here are three questions that you should ask them:

1. Will You Give Me an Accurate Estimate?

When speaking to the professionals, you must get everything in writing. You want to make sure that you have something to show if there are any questions later about what the price of something is and how the company arrived at that total. You’ll also have a general idea of what you should budget. Avoid companies that give “ballpark estimates” and look for companies that offer free estimates.

2. What Kind of Inspection Will You Do?

When you bring in someone from a local roofing company, they will inspect your home to make sure that there are no other issues that might require more work. They don’t do that because they don’t trust you. In reality, you may just not know everything about the state of your roof or your house. We can catch things that you had no idea about. We will spend an hour for your inspection and include an aerial survey to ensure proper measurements.

3. Do You Offer Venting?

Our company offers both active ventilation and passive ventilation. After inspecting your home, we can recommend the type of ventilation that will work best for your roof. This could be a ridge vent, slant back vent, pod vent, or active ventilation (like a solar vent or turbine vent). We have a lot of experience with this!

You want to make sure that you do this right. Having roof work done is a major investment. If things don’t work out, then you could wind up paying even more to have it fixed. These questions can keep you on the right track and guide you toward hiring the best people.
