How Reliable Is Your Roofing Crew?
Let’s say you recently contacted a roofing company to inspect your roof after a hail storm. Everything looks good and now your insurance claim has been approved.
Time to set up a time for a roofing crew to tear apart your existing shingles and put on new ones. It helps to not only be selective about which roofing contractor you use (AKA the person who comes to your house to assess the damage). It’s also very important that they, in turn, are also selected about who they use to do the actual roofing work on your home.
Here is what we pride ourselves in when it comes to our roofing crew:
This may be among one of the most important traits of a roofing crew. The people laying the shingles on your roof need to have experience and know what they’re doing. Oftentimes after a hail storm, many roofing contractors are rushing to find laborers to install the roofs without giving thought to their credentials.
This often leads to inexperienced “roofers” doing work on your home that could potentially void your warranty (through improper installation) and compromise your home by poor installation.
Trust us, we’ve seen our share of bad roofing jobs.
Our roofing crew team has been with us for several years, through several storms, and they simply understand proper installation and the mechanics of roofs.
If we tell you that we’re heading over a certain morning to start work on your home, you can be certain we will be there. The only factors that would affect this would be weather related (or if an emergency came up).
It helps to know that your roofing contractors will be there when you expect so you can move vehicles out of the garage, arrange for placement of pets, or make other necessary arrangements.
Because to be honest, roofing isn’t a quiet task.
Being able to clean up after a job should be expected, but did you ever consider if your roofers also cleaned up during work? This is important because there is constant material flying off the roof from removal and it could pose a hazard for people around your property.
Additionally, our roofing crews have had to work on windy days so material that is intended for the trash may fly out. We want to be especially mindful because roofing your home also can be a disturbance to your neighbors- both in noise and debris.
Our roofing crews are careful to pick up trash as we see it and keep it contained without the trailers or dumpsters.
The great thing is we’ve know of several Omaha roofing contractors that provide oversight of roofing projects. This means they have a dedicated person that will drive around town inspecting installation as it goes along to ensure there are no hiccups.
After all, it’s much easier to correct course during the process than after it’s entirely done.
The scary thing is that there are probably a handful of Omaha roofers that don’t have project oversight.
At Absolute, we have people on staff that specifically go from roof to roof during the various phases of installation to do quality assurance. It’s not that we don’t trust our roofing crew, but a second set of eyes never seems to hurt.
Making Things Right
Lastly, every roofing company makes mistakes. We’ve had our fair share of mistakes in communication, schedule, installation, clean up, etc.- it’s inevitable.
We’re certain, however, to own up and fix those mistakes.
Choosing a roofing contractor is beyond the person that comes to inspect your roof, but the entire staff behind them. It’s important that you trust the person you meet and also trust their judgement about the roofing crew they use.
