What to Avoid When you are Getting a New Roof
Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home. It protects your home and works to keep the weather outside. But when it’s time for a new roof for your home in Gig Harbor, Port Orchard, or Tacoma there are a few things you need to avoid.
Here is what you should avoid when it’s time for a new roof.
1. Not knowing your contractor
Roofing is a not only a trade it’s a craft. One that we have dedicated our careers to for the last 20+ years. When it comes time to hire a contractor, be sure you find out the following:
· Are you licensed and bonded?
· What is your warranty program?
· How long have you been in business?
When you get to know your roofer, you should get the sense that they want to be your partner. They should help educate you about all your options, and they should listen and respect your priorities.
This approach is the cornerstone of our business practices. Read more about the Rainy Day Difference here.
2. Prioritizing Price.
We know you don’t spend $12,000 to $20,000 every day. A new roof is an investment, and we understand that. This is why we recommend you partner with your contractor to better understand what roofing material is right for you.
You might decide that you want to invest in a metal roof because they can last for more than 50 years, or that you want to stick with a traditional asphalt shingle because that is what is right for you.
Regardless, your contractor should be there with you every step of the way.
3. Not understanding your contract.
Remember, it’s okay to say no. Your contractor should always work to provide you with an honest and comprehensive contract that will ensure you get the best roof.
A new roof is not just an investment in your home, it can be an exciting addition. With the right contractor, you will have a partner who is ready to help tackle this project.
