Are all roofing companies equal? We think not. It's not that you can't call somebody out of the Yellow Pages – you can – but the trial and error process may leave you with some pretty shoddy results until you find a company that you can trust.
Here are some signs of quality and integrity in the roofing business that any customer should pay attention to, if they really want to get something for their money.
No Leaks, Tight Fit
One of the most obvious signs of roofing integrity is when you look at the finished result and you can tell that it's going to protect what's underneath it.
That starts with showing flashing and soffits and gable structures that are perfectly trimmed and tailored to fit well, with no flapping, overlaps or irritating deficits.
Then also, over time, you'll see whether the roof holds water out as it is supposed to, and whether it works with your gutter system to keep your property dry and safe. If not, you may have to make an unpleasant phone call.
Dealing with Trash
It's distressing to walk into a building after the roofing is done, and see debris and stray building materials strewn over the top-floor rooms. The best roofing companies know how to deal with the trash that they generate during a job, to leave a property better than they found it. Others might just flood an area with trash – and leave. That’s not a best practice!
Here's another aspect where the best roofing companies are able to eliminate big problems on customer projects.
Weather is a reality in the roofing business. It's a major unknown – good planning goes a long way, but there may be times when it's necessary to tarp or temporarily stop a project for rain. How companies are able to deal with this involves what their workforce is like, what their resources are like, and how they have set up proactive planning to deal with any timeline issues. The roof shouldn’t be exposed during work without tarps!
No Bait and Switch
Another key part of the best roofing services is whether companies keep their promises. If they've promised a certain color, style or square footage, or some other result, they need to keep their word.
