How Do I Choose A Roofing Contractor? (Part Two of Two)

Here is a short list of questions to pose to the roofing contractors that you are considering hiring:

How long have you been a roofer?

Are you licensed and insured to work on residential roofs in my state?

How many roofs have you repaired or replaced like mine?

Do you have a website or Facebook business page where I can see photos of your work?

Can you provide me the contact info for some homeowners you’ve worked with in the past 12 months?

Tell me about the people who will be doing the actual work?

Are they experienced, licensed and insured?

Is the crew you’ll assign to my home made up of actual employees of your company or independent contractors?

Will you be here the whole time the project is happening?

Can you give me a written estimate that details everything that is included in the price?

What are your payment terms?

What unexpected costs sometimes come up on jobs like mine (and who covers those fees, you or me?)

Are there any typical costs that are not included in your estimate (like disposal of the old roof or cleanup of the work site?)

Are there any materials or tools that I’ll need to provide?

When can this job get done? How do you handle delays due to weather?

If you are still not sure what roof coating to choose or want to find out what are the sings that you need to replace your roofing, just check out or other articles or call 888-311-LEAK for a consultation.

Roof Maintenance

Truline Roofing Owner
Chuck up high Anyone who has a roof over their head be it home or business, should give serious thought to being proactive about their roof maintenance. The roof is the most critical element to protecting what is under it and that roof system takes a beating every day.   Whether it is heat, freezing temps, high wind, hail, rain, falling debris or debris collection, the home or commercial roof is always being tested.  Most if not all warranties can be voided if it can be determined that the roof has not been properly maintained.  Therefore, a maintenance program offered by truline Roofing should be a necessity and not an afterthought.  Call a CMP (Certified Maintenance Professional)

Certified Roof Professionals 

Certified Maintenance Professionals, such as truline Roofing have a total understanding of how your roof should perform and can recognize potential threats or problems before they even occur in most cases.  At truline Roofing we know about every type of roofing system and have enough experience to offer you recommendations that are best for you and your roof system.  You may think you have no roof issues just because it is not leaking today but we may see an issue that is not yet a leak but could potentially be an expensive option if overlooked for an extended period.  Leave it to a Pro.  Call truline Roofing, A CMP. gutter

Roof Warranty Woes

Many Owners are often lured into thinking they can rely on their roof warranty for at least the first couple of repairs and maintenance checks. Although warranties are made-up to safeguard you as the customer, they regularly limit the warrantor liability in cases of some types of roofing failure and not maintaining your roof properly is one of those examples. In order to ensure great performance and a long-term favorable relationship with the contractor, it is advisable to consider implementing an annual truline Roofing maintenance program from the day you install your new roof.

Pinpoint problems promptly

Some roofing problems can start as early as the first couple of months after a new install.  Issues such as clogged drains or gutters can occur at any time especially in the fall.  Debris collecting in a valley can create water intrusion issues that can go undetected for a while or until it is too late.  A simple mending that has been overlooked can become an expensive repair if not discovered and that repair cost can be more than the fee for a maintenance agreement.  Regularly scheduled inspections can detect problems before they even occur.

Pre-scheduled dental appointments

open mouth Once you’ve made the wise choice to implement a roof maintenance program you will be notified of the scheduled roof inspection before it occurs.  You will also be given a written report with pictures of whatever is discovered if anything.  Hopefully nothing will be found but that does not mean you’ve wasted money by having a preventative program in place.  Look at this way.  Most people have a preventative maintenance program scheduled with their dentist.  They schedule him at least once a year for a cleaning and inspection of their mouth.  They don’t wait until there is a problem or a cavity to see the dentist they schedule it annually.  Your roof should be done in the same manner.  Call truline Roofing today to get your roof set up for a regular preventative maintenance program.
