Since 1977, Shencorp Inc. has specialized in commercial roofing and re-roofing services throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Investing or repairing a roof is very exciting, but it can also be a bit confusing. We want you to know what to prepare for, so here are 5 tips on roof installation.
1. Invest Smart
The roof is one of the most important parts of your home. It protects you from the weather, insulates your home, and influences your energy costs. When you’re investing in your roof, invest smart. Be prepared to buy the best materials for your home possible, or you may end up paying more in the long run. Investing smartly now can make all the different.
2. Be Aware of the Seasons
This will all depend on where exactly you live. Try to schedule your commercial roofing appointment in a season where it’s the best conditions to work. For example April is known for their April Showers. If you want to make this process as efficient as possible, then you should carefully plan when the crew can work on your home.
3. Get It In Writing!
Any legitimate commercial roofing company will draw up a contract, but be sure you’re totally aware of what’s in the contract. Make sure you get in writing the financial options, completion time, and the waste removal, and the clean-up policy. Knowing exactly what you can expect from your roofing company is important.
4. Ask About Permits
Documentation is there for a reason. Make sure that your contractor is fulfilling his or her responsibilities by obtaining the proper permits for their business.
5. Pay Smart
You should typically not have to pay for the full roof until they have completed the task according to the contract. Your Lien releases from the contractor and the material supplier should be in your and your contractors hand before the final payment. Make sure that you are not being overcharged. You should know your rights as a customer.
