It’s understandable if your roof is the furthest thing from your mind during this period of isolation. You have all the right to feel complacent thanks to the previous roofing maintenance service you’ve received from high-quality, professional Calgary AB roofers. However, if you’ve missed your previous roofing consultation, it’s best to call upon your roofer as early as possible.
Thankfully, our technology for connectivity makes it possible to ask your roofer for online consultations. This service is critical, especially if you’re currently having problems handling a potential massive roof leak or significant roof damage that needs repairs.
Some homeowners have the right to ask: roofing consultations won’t bring roofers to my home because of the call for isolation. Truthfully, yes. However, with an experienced Calgary AB roofer’s in-depth expertise and knowledge in roofing (which often spans beyond two decades), you can state your roof’s symptoms and give you a comprehensive list of possible issues it might have.
Furthermore, it’s great to have a list of questions ready to learn more about your roof’s condition. Your Professional Roofer has a great list of questions you can ask. Read more about them here.
Are You Licensed and Insured?
In most states, roofing contractors need to obtain a license to work. However, code and requirements vary by state, meaning, it will help to know about the code requirements in your location. Doing so will let you determine whether your prospective contractor complies with your state’s code.
While the law requires roofing companies to provide worker’s compensation insurance to their employees, it’s still better to ask your prospective roofer about this matter. You should also ask them if they carry general liability insurance. In case something wrong happens during your project, your contractor’s insurance will cover for the damage on your property or medical expenses for injuries.
Do You Offer Energy Efficient Options?
With an energy-efficient roof, you can save on your heating and cooling costs. Your HVAC system won’t need to work as hard to cool your home if you have a cool roof. This type of roof usually consists of materials that don’t easily absorb the sun’s heat. Besides keeping your interior comfortable, it is also easier to maintain. Back in the day, cool roofs are typically in light colors but today, darker ones are already available.
Will You Tear Off My Old Roof?
When it comes to roof replacement, you have the choice between a tear-off or an overlay. Many roofers will do a visual inspection of your old roof and decide to just shingle over the existing roof. However, visual inspections may identify issues, such as rotten or sot areas. When left unaddressed, these problems can result in costly repairs in the future. To ensure your new roof lasts long, the old one must be removed and all problems should be fixed. (Continued)
