Roof Inspections-Replace or Repair?

If we feel you need to replace your roofing system altogether, we will work with you to get the job done at a price you can afford.

We will listen to all your questions and carefully explain how we came to our decision and why.

A little planning on the front end to find the right roofing company will help this process to go smoothly, as you will have reason to trust us!

We can provide a yearly inspection with all our roofing services. We know it’s costly to repair or replace your roof, so we want to do all we can to help prevent a major expense down the road-especially with the severe swings in weather here in the Red Deer.

Be sure to ask about warranties too. You might be surprised at how many repairs can be covered by warranties that come with the roof installation.

It’s always a good idea to spend the small amount on a good warranty to avoid a huge cost later down the road.

In the case of storm damage, you need to have your warranty information in hand and talk to your roofing company as soon as you know of the damage.

Bear in mind that most warranties will cover your roof for 15-30 years, but damage that comes from storms or other inclement weather often is not part of that warranty.

Make sure you understand what your warranty covers and make a plan for yearly inspections here in Red Deer to be made so your roof stays in top-notch working condition for as long as possible!

With regular maintenance and some care most roofs will have a considerable life of 15 years or more, but regardless of how careful you are in looking after your roof you will inevitably need to have a new roof fitted one day and it can be a large outlay of money.

However, your roof provides an invaluable service to you, the house itself and the contents within it so it is important that you do not compromise the quality of your new roof by taking the cheapest quote around. The key is to shop around as much as possible.

Preparation before you request a free roofing estimate

 

It is always important to do your research, especially if you know little or nothing about roofing. When you request a free roofing estimate you want to be able to do so with confidence that you know what you are asking for.

Searching the Internet will usually yield impressive results for your research and you can always call a local roofing contractor like ourselves here at Red Deer  Reliable Roofing to ask a few questions; we will be glad to help and invited to work on the project.

Try to research as much as possible regarding the potential materials and some basic building techniques that may be employed.

Picking the best Red Deer Roofing Company to give you a free roofing estimate.

Word of mouth is one of the most effective ways of finding good Red Deer  roofing contractors. This way you will already know that the company in question has done good work on somebody else’s house.

Look around for houses that are having their roof done and ask the homeowner what they think of the work; if the work has been good they won’t mind telling you.

Compare the Roofing Contractors on a like for like basis

When you have a list of quotes for anything, whether insurance or for your roofing work it is vital that you compare them on a like for like basis.

This is why it is also important that you research the product you are looking to buy before you begin your hunt for the best free roofing estimate you can find.

If you have a quote from one company offering you new sheathing as needed, ice dam material and 30 year shingles and an offer from another company only offering a 25 year shingle  it is immediately obvious that the latter is going to work out cheaper because they have lower cost of materials and lower labor costs.

You should always make sure that you clearly indicate what you want a quote for and this way whenever you receive a free roofing estimate you will be able to quickly ascertain how it stands up to competition from other companies.

A free roofing estimate is invaluable in your search for the best value roofing contractor but only when used properly, otherwise it can do more harm than good.

We’re convinced once you’ve compared everyone we’ll be the choice for your new roof–call us today. (587) 315-0700
