Establishing a good working relationship with your roofer and ensuring project success can be accomplished through the confluence of many factors. Here are some ways to help you get the most from your roofer.
1. Start by Setting Project Objectives
Set your project objectives clearly right at the beginning. At Tedrick’s Roofing, we start all our projects with a proper inspection. Doing so gives us an opportunity to know what the scope of the customer’s needs are, and having that information will help identify what our common goals will be.
2. Create a Schedule, and Stick to It
Once your expectations are set, create a reasonable timeline, and follow it as closely as possible. Roofing repairs and installation require many steps, and it is best to know when to expect throughout the process. All home improvement projects can be affected by unforeseen delays, so be sure to include scheduling allowances for those.
3. Document All Changes
When delays do occur, don’t neglect to document the reasons. Whether because of severe weather or adjustments in design specifications, write everything down, and talk to your contractor.
4. Understand Your Warranties
Manufacturer and workmanship warranties should be non-negotiable. Don’t wait until the need for urgent roof repair arises before realizing how important they are. Our team at Tedrick’s Roofing understands this so we offer the best warranties available from brands like GAF and CertainTeed®.
5. Keep Communication Lines Open
As much as you can, be available to communicate with your roofer, especially when decisions need to be made about your roof. In return, you are entitled to demand that your roofer be responsive when you need them to be.
