Your Scottsdale roof is one of those things you probably don’t give much thought to on a regular basis. Maybe you find blown off shingles or roof tiles, or perhaps you discover dark spots inside your home that indicate possible roof leaks. Either way, you will need to call your local roofing expert to have your roof checked.
Here are some things to think about the next time you need to contact a Scottsdale roofing contractor:
Your home is one of your biggest investments, and a reliable roof is vital to maintaining that investment. Regular roof maintenance checks can catch issues early and truly extend the lifespan of your roof. Often times, an area of concern can be easily spotted by the tenant or homeowner. Simple steps such as walking the perimeter of the home and being on the lookout for missing roof materials or gaps that are visible from the ground can make you aware of a potential problem. If you spot any potential concerns on your roof, call your roofing professional right away, so problems can be addressed before additional damage occurs.
Value the Workmanship:
Not just the price. You may find someone willing to make a quick repair for less money, but if the quality of the materials and the execution of the repair or roof replacement is lacking, the cheaper roofer could actually cost you more in the long run. Shoddy workmanship is one of the top reasons for roof failure, and you will have to replace or repair your roof much sooner than you would if you had chosen a quality roofer. So before you jump on the lowest bid make sure that your roofer has…
A Great Reputation:
To ensure that your roofer is as good as he claims to be, check him out on sites such as Yelp!, the ROC and BBB. Look for honest reviews by others in your community who have used him before. Don’t be shy to ask for insurance policies, warranties, written contracts and licenses. Any reputable roofer will willingly disclose that information to you. Avoid hiring roofers that knock on your door after a big storm or rainfall. Stormchasers may seem to fix your roof, but they leave town as soon as the work is done, leaving you with no one to call if you have a problem with the roof. Informed homeowners choose a local roofer, to verify such things as the local address and how long he has been in business, and check his credentials and reputation.
We Can’t Fix Everything:
Sometimes your roof is beyond repair and you will have to “bite the bullet” and have a new Scottsdale roof installed. Our goal is not to sell you the most expensive solution, but the most efficient one. Doing a small repair on one area of an old roof may repair a leak, but if the roof is compromised, it is likely that you will soon develop another leak in a new location, leading to another small repair. The cost for all those small repairs quickly adds up. Essentially, if you insist on fixing a roof that has outlived his lifespan, you are wasting money. Check with your Scottsdale roofing professional, who can advise you if your roof is beyond repair and what solutions he is able to offer you.
