Both commercial and residential roofs should be seen as puzzle-type systems, any decisions having consequences that will later be reflected at the level of the whole roof, and even of the entire building.
There are many causes of damage and errors in the execution of a roof project:
- The owner did not receive correct information to be able to make the best choices for the roofing project.
- The roofing installation company provided low quality services. It is good to get a cheap price, but not to the detriment of quality!
- The works were not supervised by qualified personnel. When it comes to a roofing project, an architect and a site manager are needed to supervise workers and to make sure that everything goes according to the contract.
That’s why it is important that you work with a professional, reliable Frisco roofing company. Of course, the Internet is full of offers, and a multitude of companies – big or small – are fighting for more visibility. Therefore, making a choice is not easy, but finding the right roofer is possible with the help of quality information.
Here are 5 questions that will make your choice easier when you are looking for the best roofer for your project.
How many years of activity does the company have?
It is very important to know how much experience a roofing company has in the business. If there are several years already since it manages roofing projects, it is obvious that the company has a consistent portfolio, and the experience gained along the time will allow it deal with your project just as well.
Is the company certified by roofing manufacturers and suppliers?
Some manufacturers like to have their own teams of installers that they train and evaluate periodically (see GAF roofing companies!) to make sure that they meet their installation standards. Roofing companies recognized by certain manufacturers and suppliers should be able to present you with certificates in this regard.
What warranties will you offer me?
Roofing works backed up by warranties = credibility for the roofing team. This is not about the 10, 20 or 30+ year warranties for the materials and accessories (these are offered by the manufacturers!), but about the workmanship warranty, which should not be overlooked.
What about consulting services?
When you request a quote from a roofing company, you should also get consulting services. What does this mean? It means to get guidance on how to make the best decisions depending on the specifics of your roofing project: from choosing the type of cover materials, to matching the roof with the rest of your property. The opinions of a consultant representing a roofing company are professional and have real value!
When will the works begin and how long will it take you to complete the project?
This question should not to be missed! The date on which the work on your roof begins must be discussed and set, as well as the deadline. These details are very important in the planning process you have to do, so they must be included in the contract.
