How to Buy a Roof
by P.I. Roofing
Roofs aren’t something that the average homeowner purchases regularly. They don’t add it to their grocery list or pick one up on a whim while waiting in line at the cash register. It’s a nerve-racking, expensive investment on its own; and when you add “on the spot” decisions, like major storm damage, it can be nearly debilitating. That’s where P.I. Roofing comes in. Read on to learn how to buy a roof before you ever need to.
GET A PROPOSAL FROM SOMEONE YOU TRUST
To give you an accurate proposal, we make sure to do more than just drive by and take a look up at your roof. We want to meet you! We want to get on your roof and not only look at the pipe boots and penetration points, but to also inspect your insulation and ventilation in your attic. And that’s what you should expect from any potential roofer offering you a legitimate proposal on your roof replacement. After all, the inspection could reveal that a replacement isn’t the only solution to your roof damage.
SELECT YOUR SHINGLES
When it comes time to top off your home’s topper, P.I. Roofing has you covered (literally). With our extensive collection of roof materials, you’re sure to find a shingle suitable for your climate, style and structure.
CHECK YOUR POLICIES
Before you start the process of purchasing your new roof, take it from us– be sure to check your neighborhood association policies! Some associations go as far as to specify the brand, style and color of shingles acceptable for your neighborhood.
EVALUATE YOUR PROPOSALS
In addition to being on the lookout for these 4 signs of a scam, don’t be afraid to ask questions! If you don’t understand certain lingo– have it clarified, and if the proposal doesn’t provide in-depth details (including the grade and manufacturer of your shingles), have the contractor specify. As a pro tip: a contractor who bids your roof on time and materials should definitely raise a red flag for you. That means they want you to buy the material and pay for the labor!
DON’T FORGET YOUR GUTTERS
This is just one more reason why, here at P.I. Roofing, we do a full inspection of your roof before ever providing a proposal. If you don’t have our High Flow Custom gutters and gutter covers already, this could be the ideal time to install them.
It’s the moment of truth. You’ve hired your roofer, but how long are they going to take to get the job done? At P.I. Roofing, we save time (and your money) by using all of our resources to verify the workers on your roof, can stay there. Regular checks by our quality control team keeps the project running smoothly, and if we need to make something custom, we’ll deliver it straight to the job site to eliminate costly downtime.
You roof does more than just protect the things you value– it protects the people you love! That’s why, from our initial proposal to finished project, we make sure to always find the best results for our customers.
