The average life of a roof is approximately fifteen years. If the roof is under fifteen years old yet you are having problems, it will likely be able to get repaired as opposed to having to install a completely new roof.
Before hiring a roofer it is always wise to get recommendations from friends or family. Get several quotes before determining the roofer to hire. A quote should be detailed and include the work to be done, cost, and time-frame for completion. Be sure clean up is included in the quoted price.
Ask the roofer how long they have been in business. Roofers with many years experience are preferable. Also, make sure they have a physical address. Ask for references and check them. Roofers should be properly insured and get a proof of insurance.
Roofing repairs and new roofs may require specific building permits. Most locations also require inspections during certain phases of construction and a final inspection when the work is complete. Before starting the project get a contract. This should include all the details of the project, time frame for completion, warranty and price.
Never be rushed into hiring a roofer. Take the time to interview potential roofers and check experience and references. Hire the roofer who has the best combination of experience and price and with whom you feel most comfortable.
