When the time comes to invest in a new roof, it’s commonly due to one of two reasons. Your home’s roof sustained damage during a wind, hail or rainstorm or your roofing shingles are showing signs of aging that can no longer be ignored.
The first step is finding a good Kansas City roofing company that you feel comfortable with. With so many roofers to choose from, a good way to narrow your list down to two or three is to ask friends, neighbors and family for any roofing recommendations. Once you have selected a few to contact, the hard part is over.
Contact each roofing company and schedule an inspection. A roofing inspection will help determine whether or not your roof needs a little repair TLC or a complete re-roof. No reputable roofing company will charge you for an objective inspection. If a roofer does charge an inspection fee, simply move on to the next roofing company on your list. There are plenty of roofing companies, like Redhammer Roof Group, that performs free roof inspections.
An objective roof inspection is key. Some roofing damage or signs of wear and tear are visible from the ground. But other roofing problems can’t be seen until the roofer is up on your roof. After a roofing inspection, the inspector will review what is found and answer your questions. Ask those roofing questions until you’re satisfied that the inspector did a thorough job and knows his stuff. There is probably a good reason you ordered an inspection so there will likely be issues to resolve. If that’s the case…
It’s time to gather fair and reasonable roofing quotes. A new roof is a significant investment, and roof pricing is definitely a big factor, but it shouldn’t be the deciding factor. A roofer’s reputation, experience, roofing materials used and willingness to stand behind the work have value—huge value.
Kansas City roofing estimates run from unbelievably cheap to ridiculously expensive. Where does Redhammer Roof Group fall? Proudly smack dab in the middle. Quality roofing shingles and roofing installers come at a cost and we don’t cut corners on them. But we don’t do outrageous mark ups either. Fair. Reasonable. Now that makes sense when it comes to getting a new roof.
