What To Insist On For Quality Roof Repair

What To Insist On For Quality Roof Repair

Miami homeowners are understandably nervous about hiring local contractors, because nearly everyone has a FOAF—a friend of a friend—with a horror story about bad contractors. Yet when seeking roof repair, Miami property owners can feel confident if they insist on these three hallmarks of quality roof repair.

Timeliness

Especially with roof repair, time is crucial. When checking out prospective roof repair contractors, ask for references on recently completed jobs. When you call those previous customers, ask specifically if the response was fast, the work was done quickly, and if the contractor did interrupt one job with another.
Quick response is only the first step to a professional roof repair job, but it matters. Some roofers will answer your call, but then fail to show up. Others will start your roof job, go to two other jobs, then return to finish your roof.

Miami homeowners know that storm-related roof problems cannot wait. Insist on a roofer who will show up promptly, complete the job quickly, and make a complete repair.

Complete Work

Roof repairs encompass more than just fiberglass-asphalt shingle or ceramic tile replacement. Sheathing, underlayment, drip edge, water shield, hip and ridge cap shingles all need to be inspected and made whole again.

A roof is a system of integrated parts. To focus roof repair work on just a missing shingle actually misses the goal: a complete repair job to make your Miami home water resistant and intact again.

Industry Standards

Shingle and tile manufacturers expect roofing contractors to use their materials correctly, to validate the warranties.

GAF, for example, conveys its title of factory-certified Master Elite Roofing Contractor on only those companies that demonstrate the highest quality and adherence to professional standards.
GAF Master Elite® and Master Select contractors must demonstrate to GAF that they are:

1. Properly licensed
2. Adequately insured to protect the homeowner
3. Have a proven reputation as a community-minded company providing quality roofing services
4. Committed to ongoing professional training to ensure quality installation

Ask any prospective roofer what sorts of awards, certifications, and commendations it has received from manufacturers. A company can be judged by the company it keeps.
