Choosing The Right Roofing Contractor Helps Your Project Go Smoothly.
We have a roofing contractor for every job! We at Valley Roofing understand a new roof is a significant investment. A roof protects your home from diverse weather patterns and keeps your family safe. This is not the project on which to skimp. Choosing the right roofing contractor makes all the difference between a good, quality project and a bad one. We’ve determined the four primary questions and aspects of your roofing project you should discuss before signing on the dotted line. Use this as a guide and you can’t go wrong.
The 4 Ps: What Are They And What Do They Tell Me?
Determining the best contractor for your job requires an organized plan of action. Here are the 4 Ps that your contractor should be able to identify and resolve:
Problems: Your contractor should be able to properly identify your roofing problems. Is the flashing installed correctly? Has storm damage left puncture marks in your roof? Can it be repaired instead of replaced? A quality contractor should be able to answer these questions and explain to you why a new roof, or a repair is necessary. Identifying your roofing problems takes a trained and experienced eye so choose wisely.
Product: Your contractor should be able to determine the best product for your home and budget. Did you know your roof makes up 40-60% of your curb appeal? Whether you’re selling your home in a year or keeping it, this data indicates a new roof is critical to maintaining your home’s value. There are many factors to consider when choosing a product. How steep is the roof? What appeals to you stylistically? Do you want metal, shingles, slate, shakes, or tile? While the decision is ultimately your own, choosing a contractor who can guide you through the process and provide pertinent information and practical advice makes it easier.
People: When making a large investment in your home, you want to choose a contractor you can trust. Has the contractor done other jobs of the same scope and size? Reading online reviews and asking your roofer if he’s licensed and insured is a great way to learn more and make an informed decision. Most importantly, trust your instincts!
Price: When done correctly, your roof is an investment, not an expense. It is the difference between putting money in the bank or throwing it down the drain. A quality contractor guides you through the different options so you can make an informed decision. He or she offers advice and recommendations to ensure the roofing material you choose matches your home’s architecture and budget. If you line these 4 Ps up you will come up with the 5th P- Peace of Mind
Asking questions, listening to your gut, and discussing your investment with your partner gives you confidence when choosing your next roofing contractor.
