Frequently Asked Questions
The Number one thing that you want to look for when picking a roofing contractor is to make sure they are licensed, insured, and bonded. Ask your contractor if they have a document they can show you that displays the number they're insured for and that they're licensed and bonded.
The second thing you should do is talk to your friends and neighbors that have used a roofing contractor in the past. You can also talk to your insurance agent, or local realtors to see if they have any good recommendations.
Lastly and most importantly, I would check out online reviews. You can find these reviews on different websites such as Google, Facebook, BBB, and most roofing companies' websites.
The average roof replacement is going to take about a day. It starts with our production manager as they determine which crew to send to your job depending on how big your roof is, how steep it is, and how complex it is.
The crew will show up at 7 o'clock. They'll go around the property putting out tarps, and protecting all the landscaping. The first 2-3 hours is the crew completely removing the old roofing system. The next 1 hour to 2 hours is spent weatherproofing the new roof by installing the underlayments, the ice and water shield, the felt paper, the drip edge, the starter shingles, and the valley metals.
After a lunch break, the crew spends the remaining hours of the day installing the new roof. The new shingles, ventilation parts, the pipe boots, the flute caps, all that stuff. At the end of the day the crew cleans up, and trailers are removed from the premise.
In the fall the number one problem that people have is leaves getting in their gutter systems. An easy way to prevent that is a gutter screen. This is placed right on top of the gutters so that nothing can get into the gutters while the leaves fall off of the trees.
Another issue homeowners will run into as the season changes are issues with snow and ice. Things such as deicing cables are an easy way to prevent snow and ice build-up on your roofing system that could cause serious damage later on.
The last thing to consider, and something we highly recommend, is that after all the leaves have fallen get your gutters cleaned. This prevents build-up on the gutter system that could cause clogging and possible ice dams.
First, you will want to make sure your vehicle is out of the garage and the driveway. Your roofing team will be delivering materials as well as a big dump trailer or a dumpster that morning.
The second thing you will want to prepare for is removing items away from your house. Your house patio furniture, grills, potted plants, and anything valuable to you around the home should be moved to a covered area. If you have items that are too heavy for you to move then make sure to let the foreman or your project manager know so they can help move them before the roof starts. Also, let us know if there are any delicate plants or shrubs around your property and we'll make sure to cover them before we start the roofing project.
Lastly, you will want to let us know if there are any items on your walls that are expensive or fragile family heirlooms. We don't want those to accidentally fall down when we complete your new roofing project.
Remember you can always ask your project manager questions about anything inside or outside your home before the roof starts.
