Tips For Choosing a New Roof Company - Roofing Contractors in Flower Mound Texas

Tips For New Roof Installs Or Roof Repair Services

Purchasing a new Roof or hiring for roofing services may seem like a daunting task. By choosing a professional, experienced roofing contractor you can ensure you are making the right decisions as well as ensure a proper installation of a new roof or ensure quality repairs that will be long lasting. Generally speaking and depending on the quality of work and materials used, a new roof should hold up for roughly 25-30 years. Often, consumers assume they need a new roof entirely, when in reality repairs can be put in place to avoid the installation of a new roof.

When choosing the right roofing contractor to fit your needs the first thing you will want to consider is whether or not the potential company is reputable. A new roof as well as some repairs can be a pricey purchase so you will want to make sure you are choosing a company that is trusted among your community. Always choose a local company that has been in business for a number of years and has built a reputation within your community. By choosing local you can ensure the company is familiar with national as well as local building codes. Locality also ensures promptness when responding to any urgent roofing needs. Lastly, choosing local ensures the company will never fall back on you in the event of any issues with the work they have performed. Your roof is the first point of defense against the harsh outdoor elements so a proper and dependable installation is crucial. You may start by asking for recommendations from family, friends, neighbors, and your community. Once you have a roofing contractor in mind, start by checking the company’s website and Google for reviews and always make sure you read the most recent reviews for a proper representation of the company. You will also want to check with the Better Business Bureau to review their ratings and reviews.

 

Working with a licensed and insured Roofing Company should be at the top of your list of priorities.

 
This is important to consider to protect yourself and your home from any liability should any accidents happen. Another important aspect to consider is whether or not the roofing company you are considering provides a warranty on their work done. A warranty will ensure the work done is done properly and in a manner that is sure to last. If any problems occur, a warranty will ensure your roof is repaired and/ or any issues are rectified at no additional cost to you. The warranty should include workmanship so you are not liable to pay extra for the company to come out and repair any issues that were caused by their lack of properly installing your roof or providing quality repairs.
 
Never simply choose the first company you find or the cheapest. Always do your research. Spending a few extra dollars can ensure a much higher quality job done. It is important to obtain at least three written quotes from three different companies. This will allow you to do the proper research on the companies you are considering, as well as giving you the opportunity to review all of the details in each quote. You will then be able to properly decide which company best fits your needs. Never be afraid to ask as many questions as possible before securing a company for your roofing needs. Communication is essential when choosing the right company. Did they answer all of your questions in a timely manner? Were they available within a reasonable time frame for discussion? Did they return your calls? A reliable company will always put communication with current and potential clients at the top of their list of priorities.
 
 

Always contact your insurance company first.

You will want to discuss any coverage or deductibles with your insurance company prior to hiring a roofing contractor. Never sign a contract with a company for roofing repairs or replacement prior to having your insurance company come out and estimate the damage. This will not only ensure you have complied with your insurance companies regulations, it will also ensure you are receiving a fair quote for repairs/ replacement. If your insurance company is paying for the entire repair or replacement, don’t settle for the cheapest materials for the job. Always educate yourself or seek education from the roofing company you are considering regarding types of shingles/ types of materials. Some hold up better or longer than others. You will want to choose the right materials to fit your needs as this can even impact the resale value of your home in the future.
 
By properly educating yourself and doing adequate research as well as seeking recommendations from your local community, you should be prepared to make an educated decision on a local roofing contractor to fit all of your roofing needs. Being that roof replacement/ repair is a huge and costly job, you will want to protect yourself and your home. Consumer education is highly valuable when making decisions like this. By utilizing all of the suggestions and tips provided, you can rest assured you are making a responsible decision.

While buying a house, I had a home inspection report recommend that the roof be evaluated. I called Tanner, with Capstone, and he was able to perform an inspection the same day. He gave me a phone call to go over everything and said to give him until noon the next day to finish the report and proposal for repairs. The report was finished before that time and was very detailed. Although the seller, an investor, chose another roofing company, I would highly recommend Capstone. They are professional and honest, and their attention to detail is second to none.read more

Prior to hiring a Roofing Contractor, it is essential to gather as much information as possible on potential contractors. Use these pointers to ensure a quality company is handing your needs;

  • Seek referrals and recommendations from friends and family. Utilizing online reviews from the community will also be beneficial.
  • Request pictures of the contractor’s past work and also ask for testimonials from past clients. You can retrieve this information via the contractor’s website or by interviewing previous customers. Even the best contractors have to handle complaints. Complaints are not necessarily an indication of a poor contractor, but the way a roofing contractor has dealt with them can be. Don’t be afraid to ask the potential contractor how they have dealt with complaints in the past or call the Better Business Bureau to investigate the claims.
  • Get several quotes before hiring a contractor. A roofing quote should be highly detailed, containing specifics about the work to be done, the cost of materials and labor, and it should provide a timeline for the scope of the work. Always ensure that the cleanup is included in the quote.
  • If you wish to have the contractor handle all facets of the project, make sure clean up is included in the contract so that you are not stuck with the additional cost or labor. This is important to factor into the total price of your roofing project. If the contractor does not handle cleanup, you will have to either do it yourself or pay to have it done.

Next Steps After Choosing A Roofing Contractor


Once you have decided on a roofer, be sure to get a detailed contract for the work to be done. This should consist of the following;

  • All details for the project should be clearly outlined.
  • Material cost, estimated labor, and the time frame for the work to be completed should be included in the outline for the scope of work to be done.
  • If any warranties are offered, they should be supported in writing in the contract, including any details of the warranty.
  • Read over the warranty carefully to ensure you understand the terms of the warranty.
  • Keep in mind that only the manufacturer provides product warranties and often warranties are only valid if a contractor is “certified” to install the product. Talk to your contractor about following all manufacturer’s specifications necessary for product warranty.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask the contractor to explain anything you don’t understand, and to specify anything that you don’t see in writing. If you feel as if the warranty is inadequate, express your concerns and ask for additional amendments to the warranty.
  • Take the necessary time to research and assess any roofer you are considering hiring. Both roofing repairs and new roofs are significant investments. Taking the extra time to complete sufficient research on the company you have chosen will save time, money, and headaches in the long run.
  • Ensure the company you have chosen offers verifiable expertise, experience, proper licensing and insurance, and offers sensible solutions to your roofing needs at a fair price.
  • Make sure that you feel comfortable working with the roofer. You should have complete and total trust in your contractor’s character, competency, and commitment. Your new roof or roofing repairs should keep you happy for many years to come.

    Hopefully, these tips prove to be useful to you in your search for a roofing contractor. It can be a daunting task, but you will never regret spending the extra time to hire a quality contractor that takes care of you and your home.

After gathering a list of possible roofers from Google, the yellow pages, and referrals from family and friends, the next reasonable step is to assess your options.

Most customers choose roofers based on cost alone. However, the cost of repair should never be the sole basis of selecting a roofing contractor for your home. Because your roof, home, and peace of mind are at stake it is better to ask the contractors the following questions before signing any contracts:

1. Is the roofing contractor a member with any roofing organizations?

Reputable roofing contractors will associate themselves with organizations that contribute to their reputation and reliability. In turn, the roofing organization binds the contractors to a strict set of rules and guidelines for conducting business. The contractor may contribute to the positive reputation of the organization by doing well on their roofing projects or can ruin its credibility by doing poorly. Therefore, there is a demand for each contractor to do well on every project for the roofing organization to be able to showcase its roofing contractors association.

2. How long has the roofing contractor been in business?

A great roofing contractor knows the ins and outs of roofing work. They can easily spot issues in your roof and take care of them. If you are not yet ready for a repair, he can recommend alternative solutions for covering your roof. You will know if the contractor you are speaking with is a competent roofer by the advice he gives. An experienced roofer will be knowledgable on available products to repair your roof and can explain to you in detail the procedure for roofing repair. Typically, those who have been in business for three years or more will provide you with comprehensive information on all things roofing.

3. Are they licensed and insured roofing contractor?

A credible roofing contractor knows how to take proper care of his crew and his business. If a contractor extends to you a very low bid for the roofing project, they could be skimping on their insurance. Ask them about their worker’s compensation and liability insurance coverages. What will the contractor do if your roof leaks only a few months after completion of the job? If he guarantees a free repair, it must be in writing. If one of their workers is hurt while working on your roof, will you be liable for this? Ask for proof of these certificates for your own peace of mind. Also, obtain copies of their licenses or credentials. You can contact your local clerk’s office to learn about the requirements for roofing contractors in your area.

4. Do they specialize in this variety of roofing?

If they do, ask for photos of previous repairs that are similar to yours. Also, ask for testimonials from those clients on how they like the materials after installation. If they do not specialize in your roofing needs, may ask for recommendations for roofing contractors.

5. What type of roofing products do they use?

Competent roofers can provide you with answers to all your materials questions and explain to you, in layman’s terms, all that you need to know.

6. How quickly can they perform the work?

The project timeframe should be established in the beginning. If the work is not finished as scheduled, ask if the contractor gives a discount?

7. What time does their workday usually begin?

Much like the estimated date of completion, you must also be very clear on the working hours. If you do not want to be awakened in the early morning with the sound of hammering on your roof, communicate this with the contractor.

8. What is the cost of replacing the roof?

A good contractor will not only provide you with the cost of repair, but he should also present to you a detailed description of the material and labor cost.

9. Can the roofing company give you testimonials from previous jobs?

Feedback is essential when selecting a contractor. You may want to ask for a list of five or more past clients and their phone numbers or contact information, preferably within the last 12-24 months. You do not need to call each, randomly select three or four. When you call, ask about the contractor’s job performance, responsiveness to concerns, work quality, and any related questions that may help in your decision making process. Be sure to limit your questions when you call the referrals.

10. How long is their roofing service warranty?

Some warranties last for a year, some longer. Ensure that you have a copy of said warranty. Also, be sure that your contractor is certified to install the materials you wish to have installed. Improper installation can void any manufacturer warranties for materials used.

11. How do they handle customer issues and complaints?

You may wish to ask for specific instances where the contractor dealt with a complaint and how he handled it. You may also wish to request a referral from that customer involved with the complaint. You can research in your local licensing departments if the contractor had any disputes, a suspended license, and any other related issues. If you find something from that research, ask the contractor how they were able to resolve it.

If you are thoroughly satisfied with the contractor’s answers, then you are finally ready to sign the contract. 

Hopefully, these tips prove to be useful to you in your search for a roofing contractor. It can be a daunting task, but you will never regret spending the extra time to hire a quality contractor that takes care of you and your home.

We hope you will consider Capstone Roofing & Construction for your roofing needs when it comes time for your roofing project.

Tips For Choosing A Roofing Contractor

Tips For Choosing A Roofing Contractor

Every so often we will run into a situation with the roof of our home. Perhaps it recently incurred hail damage. Maybe there is a leak. Your roof could also be too old and in need of total replacement. Whatever the case may be, one cannot be too careful in choosing a roofing contractor. The roof is one of the most critical aspects of your home, and a good roof should last you 15 years and beyond. Choosing a proper roofing contractor is of paramount importance.

One of the best ways to select a roofing contractor is contacting them over the phone. Even better would be to meet with them in person and ask questions. This allows you to gain an understanding of your potential contractor’s competency, character, and commitment. To locate a roofing contractor, you can ask friends or family for anyone they might recommend. Another way for sourcing a contractor would be doing a Google search for a roofing contractor. One advantage of a Google search is that it allows you to read reviews and ratings left by previous customers. Lastly, check your local roofing directory for a short list of contractors in your area. Any which method you choose, be sure to check out the companies website for more information.

For example, here are some of our customers’ Google Reviews:

Qualifications

First off, never hire an unlicensed roofing contractor. However, a license does not necessarily indicate a committed professional who performs excellent work. Trade association membership can be a great sign of quality in a contractor. Verify whether or not your potential contractor has taken any continuing education training. If they have, call the trade association and ask to see certificates of the continuing education.

Make sure the contractor has a permanent business. When selecting a roofing contractor, it is essential to be confident that the contractor will be able to complete all work that is agreed upon.  The contractor should have a permanent business address and phone number. You may also visit the business to get a firsthand look at the fleet size and business scope of the contractor. A larger contractor may be more well-equipped, but less personal. A smaller contractor could be inexperienced or understaffed. Getting to know the business before doing business is always a smart move.

Ask about the contractor’s insurance coverage. Find out what it covers and the total amount it covers. Have the contractor show you their certificate of insurance as proof. These certificates will detail the coverage dates as well as the policy limits from their insurance carrier.  Also be sure that they have workers’ compensation coverage as property owners may be sued for accidents which occur on their property. This should never be a possibility when hiring a quality contractor.

Quality of Work

Every contractor should have a safety plan so be sure to acquire one from them. Safety plans are required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and are essential for ensuring projects are executed correctly.

Find out how long the warranty is on work performed by the contractor. Typically this warranty will be one year or longer. Warranty length doesn’t matter so much as whether or not the contractor intends to stand behind their warranty. A dishonest contractor who refuses to uphold their warranty can become a legal nightmare. Great contractors often work beyond their written contract to produce thrilled customers. Keep in mind that only the manufacturer provides product warranties and often warranties are only valid if a contractor is “certified” to install the product. Talk to your contractor about following all manufacturer’s specifications necessary for product warranty.

The contractor should also thoroughly discuss with you your home improvement project. Areas to cover with your contractor include the color and product type you wish to use, how to get a permit if necessary, what the clean-up procedure is, and how the project will be paid for.

Work History

Find out how long your contractor has been in business. Even though a contractor in business for two years or less might do excellent work, it may be preferable to select a contractor who has been in business for at least five years. The longer a contractor has been in business, the more experience they have, which often means better choices, better workmanship, and typically fewer hiccups along the way when installing your new roof.

Ask for pictures of the contractor’s past work and references from past clients. You can retrieve this information via the contractor’s website or by interviewing previous customers. Even the best contractors have to handle complaints. Complaints are not necessarily bad, but the way a roofing contractor has dealt with them can be. Don’t be afraid to ask the contractor how they have dealt with complaints in the past or call the Better Business Bureau to find out.

In addition to the above advice, have three contractors you are considering submit their bids in writing. Having three bids is useful to compare the prices and products the roofing contractors will use to complete the project. A proposal which is significantly higher or lower than the others should be a red flag. Once again, roofing directory sites can be helpful for streamlining the process. A directory can put you in contact with three roofing companies just by filling out an estimate request form.

Hopefully, these tips prove to be useful to you in your search for a roofing contractor. It can be a daunting task, but you will never regret spending the extra time to hire a quality contractor that takes care of you and your home.

If you are thinking of doing repairs to your roof but not sure how to go about it, maybe it is time to call in a roofing company.

If you are missing many shingles after a storm, call in a roofing company before any damage is done to your roof. When one shingle comes off, it lets the other shingles around it be more vulnerable and eventually they will come off and cause damage to the roof.

Roof materials can sometimes get mold growth from being in damp areas and from debris from overhanging tress on the roof. This is also a good time to call in a local company to clean the mold on your roof and stop any damage to the roof before it gets worse.

They roofing contractor will come out and inspect your roof and let you know what needs done to repair any problem areas.
