Know your roof
We say know your roof for one simple reason, most people don't. When purchasing a new home or renovating an old one, always ask your roofing contractor what material they are using, what the warranty is, and if the material is for materials and of labor. It is not uncommon to not have a warranty on labor, so even if a shingle or row of EPDM does fail, the materials may be free but the cost of installation is not. When shopping for a roofing contractor, Huntsville AL has a great array of qualified and professional services, make sure to get the best one!
Roof Repairs and Stroms
Rule number 1,never do a roof repair in a storm! But seriously, sometimes a roof never tested is something that you will never know just how good it is! We all have shingles blow away or bad build ups destroying rubber. Sometimes a quick fix may get you a few more years out of your roof. And although we are hardly ever proponents of a quick fix, sometimes that is all you can afford and all you may need to do to get some last bits of life out of your roof. Storm damage may end up being centralized and not as big a deal as it may seem. So as much as we hate to admit it, give us a call and we can give you a fair estimate on a roof repair!
Residential Roof Talk
So we recently completed a renovation for a local home flipper, when he first gave us the budget and had us take a look at the roof, I will be honest, it looked like a breeze, simple asphalt shingles work, scrape the old off and nail the new down.
To our dismay, this roofs substrate had rotted all the way through. This included removing all rotted sheathing, shoring up rotted trusses and replacing all of the sub base to make sure we can adhere the new asphalt shingles properly and for years to come.
We all make mistakes and we all miss some important things, and then there are times like this where we just dont plum see it, completely invisible to the naked eye. Guess we live and learn.
Now we love giving our clients the best rock bottom price that we can and still make sure that everyone is happy and get what they need out of every transaction. But one thing that has been prevalent in the roofing world is that of safety. It doesn't take much error or just the wrong conditions to create a terrible mistake.
This small margin for error mixed with the skill and speed in which we perform our roof's can be a blessing and a curse. Our company has gone over 5 years without as much as a scratch to our personnel, and that's because we take great pride in our in house safety programs and making sure that every worker follows basic safety protocol. This sometimes can make us a little pricier than the next guy, but I guess that would sure beat having a worker with a broken arm on your front lawn any day now wouldn't it! When you're shopping for your next roofer, Huntsville AL has just one we can recommend! Ourselves! Roof repairs, commercial roofing, residential roofing, you name it we do it!
