The roof is that part of the home or business that often goes neglected due to its location, but when it comes to comfort it means everything. While it’s important to address any issues with your roof promptly—you can also prevent any issues before they occur. Here are just a few simple tips to help make the process easier.
1. Timing is everything.
With the warm season upon us, now marks the ideal time to replace your roof. The cold months and inclement weather often impede workers from being able to do the job, while late spring and summer are perfect times to perform work on your roof most efficiently and effectively.
Just as repairs ranging from hail, heavy wind damage, fire and other disasters require immediate attention, so does the slightest leak into your house. It’s more convenient to work with a contractor who works directly with your insurance company through an insurance claim center.
While homeowners are encouraged to occasionally inspect their roof with a pair of binoculars, scheduling a professional inspection at least once a year—twice ideally—is far more effective and puts a professionally-trained eye on your roof that can better detect any signs of damage. The preventive nature of inspections make them a smart investment that could save you money when it really matters down the road.
2. Choosing a professional—look for proof.
A good reputation.
Has the company earned local awards to prove itself as a standout against the competition?
A sound roofing warranty.
This not only signifies a company’s faith in the high quality of its own work, but commitment to the satisfaction of each customer.
While it’s important to find a roofer that’s certified, it’s also important to locate solid customer testimonials that lend credibility to a company’s level of care, friendliness, and timeliness getting the job done.
