When it comes to maintaining your home, a new roof is one of the biggest expenses you will have to make. This certainly is no easy task; in fact, it can be quite intimidating.
Living in Colorado we learn to expect many climate changes and sometimes we are surprised by the elements. Strong rainfall, snow, and hailstorms can change the status of any good roof.
We may find ourselves needing to come up with a solution to prevent further damage, like leaks that can seep down the attic, into the insulation, down the walls, and find their way down to the basement.
A home’s roof quickly becomes a top priority in the event of damage. You will need a roofing company that will protect your home and takes the time to walk you through the process of restoring your roof.
Make sure you are satisfied and have peace of mind, see below for several tips on how to choose the best Timnath roofing company for your home.
Know when a roof needs to be replaced
When you start think about replacing your roof, you may want to make sure that is really what you need. A roof is usually replaced every 20-25 years or sooner if damage occurs.
It’s always advisable to work with an established company that is backed by many years of experience to do the job. In some cases, a full replacement may not be necessary. You need a company that can spot the difference to make the appropriate assessment of the situation.
T Bare Roofing is a company that is knowledgeable and works with integrity to provide an honest inspection of your roof. Listed below are some common signs that you might need a new roof:
- It has been 20-25 years since the roof was replaced
- Water is leaking into your attic or home
- Missing shingles or visible cracks or damage
- The roof sags
- There is mold in your home
- Stains on the roof could be a sign of moss, fungus, or mold
What type of materials to choose?
There will be plenty of details to consider when replacing or repairing a roof. Take some time to drive around your neighborhood to see how other homes similar to yours look like with different colors and shapes.
It will be helpful to see the differences or similarities for that matter to help make a decision. Your choice of roofing materials will largely depend on where you are located, as well as your personal taste.
Metal or wood roofing may be used for a barn out in beautiful Colorado. While a steeper roof may require a Spanish-influenced tile. However, the most common choices for residential roofing include:
- asphalt composition shingles
- Wood shakes or shingles
- Metal Roofs
- Slate roofing
- Clay or ceramic tile
What to look for in a roofing company
Some key things to look for when hiring a roofing company are as follows:
Hire only licensed contractors that will keep you informed of every step along the way and a company that makes you feel at ease when something comes up and you have questions.
Be sure to ask if they have insurance to cover themselves and you for the duration of the project. T Bare Roofing just increased their insurance to keep up with their growth rate.
Get at least 3 bids to compare and give yourself the space to choose the right one for your home and your budget.
Get it in writing, make sure you completely, understand the contract. You want to be sure the company you choose will work for you every step of the way. Meaning they will answer all questions you may have on the contract and the insurance premium coverage for your home.
Have a contractor apply for the required permits. Every roof replacement project requires multiple permits and these should be handled by the roofing company.
Be sure the final inspection has passed and that you receive a certificate of completion before you make the final payment.
Check References and Reviews
Request at least 3 references and ask to see a project. You can also lookup the company’s reviews
