Planning to get your roofing replaced soon? It’s complicated and tricky work, and you should expect a few things when planning this project. Excel Roofing and Solar discusses more.
Validate Your Roofing Contractor
It’s tempting to do the roofing replacement on your own, but it’s always better to hire a professional to do it for you. Always pick an experienced roofer to do your project. Start by validating their contractor credentials, and check with your local state licensing board if they are licensed and insured.
Roofing Inspection And Estimate
Once you’ve hired a roofer for your project, your roofing will have to undergo an inspection to give you the right estimate. As one of the top roofing contractors in our area, we make it a point to check everything about your roof because in some cases (especially when the roof is old), repair work might be necessary. This is so your new roof and the structure itself do not collapse during replacement.
This chance that your roof might need pre-replacement repair is also why we also recommend you give yourself a bit of an allowance on your roofing budget. This is just in case you do need additional roof repair and so that unexpected charges don’t surprise you.
Acquiring a Permit
Finally, you’ll have to acquire a permit to actually do your roofing project, whether it’s repair or replacement work. When you work with our roofing company, we’ll be the ones who will acquire your permit for you. This step is something you can’t skip, by the way, since once the new roof is installed, there will be an inspection to determine if the new roof complies with your area’s building code.
