In roof replacement, every choice you make counts. A single wrong decision could make the project unnecessarily stressful or affect your new roofing system’s long-term performance.
To ensure the success of your roofing project, Kroll Construction shares some these helpful tips:
Look for Proof of License and Insurance
Remember the home improvement adage: hire the right contractor, and you’re halfway there. Nothing speaks louder about the roof’s integrity and proficiency than proper license and adequate insurance. Unlicensed and uninsured companies can’t guarantee quality work and ensure accountability in case of worker injury and property damage. If you’re serious about getting the best work from your roofing company, demand for proof of these credentials.
Choose a Manufacturer-Certified Roofer
To buy a particular product, hire a roofer certified by its manufacturer. For instance, nobody can install Owens Corning®’s Total Protection Roofing System® better than a Preferred Contractor. A standout in the brand’s network of roofing contractors, this breed of roofer meets Owens Corning’s high standards and strict requirements for reliability and professionalism.
Strip the Old Roof Away
A good rule of thumb to reduce the chances of roof failure is to avoid installing the new layer of asphalt shingles over an existing one. The local building regulation may allow it, but doing so deprives roofers the chance to inspect the condition of the underlying wood deck. Instead of an overlay, a roof re-cover is a prudent decision to guarantee long-term structural integrity.
Schedule Construction During Fall
Tackling the replacement of your roofing system during fall will help winter-proof your home and save your little ones from the hassles of the project. Since your children are back to school, they wouldn’t have to deal with the mess and the noise that much. Without worrying about stressed kids, it would be easier to live through your roof replacement.
