A home is shelter.
It’s shelter from wind, rain, heat and cold. In that sense, the roof over your head is the first line of defense against the elements that could affect the quality of life for you and your family.
So when it comes time to consider preventative maintenance or a whole-sale replacement of a roof, there are a lot of options to consider. Not all homes are designed with an A-frame roof, or covered in the same asphalt shingles. A roof can be both functional and beautiful.
Some key questions homeowners should ask potential roofing contractors are:
- Do you have references?
- Are you licensed and insured?
- Is your workmanship guaranteed in writing?
- Are the materials covered under a warranty?
- Have you worked with my roof type and material before?
- Do you offer a free estimate?
