If your home is more than 10 years old and it hasn’t had any remodelling done over the past decade, it is likely that wear and tear is beginning to show. If the time has come to consider renovating one of the most important structural elements of your home not to be overlooked is your roof. Whilst the roof of a home provides shelter and security it is also the part of your home that is most exposed to the environment and harsh elements of sun, rain, wind and storms. Over time, the roof will begin to fade, tiles may become brittle and loose or steel roofing may begin to rust, causing leaks and damage to your ceiling. A roof restoration is an elaborate and time-consuming process. Roof coatings today are far more specialised and require a very specific application by a trained professional to maximise performance, ensuring your roof lasts for many years to come. You’ll want to make sure you hire a reputable company who will do the job right the first time. Here are some factors to consider when choosing a roof restoration company:
Choose a licensed company who employs qualified tradesmen
By hiring a fully licensed roof restoration company you’re more likely to get a quality restoration by professionals with good customer service. Check that the company employs qualified tradespeople who proudly represent their company as opposed to a company who uses independent contractors.
Ask about insurance
A roof restoration company should have the appropriate insurances to protect both themselves and their clients against any loss or damage to the property, materials and protection in the case of accident, injury or death.
Choose a roof restoration company who offers a minimum 10-year warranty on both materials and workmanship. A dual warranty gives the customer assurance that the roof coatings and materials used are of high quality carried out by an experienced professional who knows what they’re doing.
Initial Inspection and quotes
Ensure that the roofing company thoroughly inspects your roof before supplying you with a written fixed quote. You don’t want any nasty surprises halfway through your restoration when you are already committed and can’t back out.
