A roof is one of the most important elements of your home. Whether it is installing a new roof or repairing an existing one, the roofing contractors at Crown Roofing Specialist understand how important it is to have a quality, professionally-installed roof that not only lasts, but saves property owners time and money on repairs and maintenance.
Before You Repair or Replace Your Roofing
Maintenance is an important part of keeping your roof long-lasting and functional. Depending on the type of roofing material used, it may require more or less maintenance.
When you request a roof repair or replacement estimate, a professional roofing contractor will be able to tell you the age and extent of any roofing problems you may experience and help you determine whether your roof needs any repairs, only minor repairs, or whether it it needs to be completely replaced.
Common Roofing Problems
Some of the common roofing problems typically encountered in Toronto include:
- Leaks and moisture intrusion
- Missing or damaged shingles
- Ice buildup
Damaged shingles, corrosion, rot and moisture problems are also common in older or improperly installed roofs. If these problems are not dealt with correctly and quickly, they can start to impact other areas of your home, including soffits, walls and other structural components.
Crown Roofing Specialist can help you determine the health of your roof and provide an estimate if roofing repairs or replacement are needed.
Installing a roof properly the first time is the key to ensuring your roof endures and functions properly, shedding water from the home or building while adding an aesthetically-pleasing look and enhancing property value.
Hiring a Roofing Contractor
Some trades are unfortunately plagued by “fly-by-night” companies or individuals. Be aware of this: Your home is one of the largest investments you will ever make, and it is important to make sure that both you and your home are protected.
When hiring a roofing contractor, ask for references and follow up on them. It is also standard practice to ask contractors where they obtain their supplies, and to follow up with those roofing suppliers to ensure that the contractor pays their bills on time. If they do not, the suppliers only recourse may be to come after the home or building owner.
The roofing contractor should also be able to provide proof that they have both liability insurance and Worker’s Compensation insurance. Here at Crown Roofing Specialist we have 2 ,000,000 worth the liability insurance.
Once you receive the roof estimate, it is also important to understand what is included in the estimate. There are many different factors that impact the price of a new roof, and understanding what you are paying for will go a long way towards protecting your home and your family.
Crown Roofing Specialist has worked hard to earn our great reputation, and will be more than happy to provide references and answer any questions about us that you might have.
