How do you know when your roof needs repair or replacement? What should you know before hiring a company to repair or replace your roof? What mistakes can you avoid? Today Rick Hinkson with Eureka Contracting and Roofing here in St. Louis is joining us to go over the things you need to know about replacing your roof.
What to look for when repairing or replacing your roof?
Do you see anything that looks askew or damaged? If you suspect something is wrong with your roof, chances are you’re right.
Don’t be pressured by hard-driving sales men who insist you need to replace your roof. Call a reputable roofer like Eureka contracting to give you an honest assessment.
Are your neighbors getting new roofs? This might be a good indication that you should have your roof looked at.
What are the common mistakes to avoid when replacing your roof?
Avoid storm-chasers – Typically, after the storm, storm-chasing roofers will blow through town. They might show up at your home, leave a hanger on your door knob, or make sales calls. After they fix your roof, they will blow back wherever they came from. If you have a problem, they are not likely to come back from another state to fix it. Find a local roofer.
Use better shingles – The old-styled three-tab shingles last 20-25 years. These types of roof shingles are not used very often anymore. For a little more money, the new architectural shingles can be installed. They are more attractive and more durable.
Make sure the company you call is licensed and fully insured – Hire a reputable company with a fast, efficient, and experienced crew.
