Here at Hicks Residential Roofing, we want to help you take the best possible care of your roof. Our owner has over 40 years of experience in the industry, so it’s safe to say that we know a thing or two about roof maintenance. In this article, we will go over a few key things that your roofing contractor wants you to know in order to help you keep your roof in peak condition.
• Mow Your Lawn to Make Cleanup Easier- One thing that your roofing contractor wants you to know is that roofing is a messy job, and some debris will inevitably end up falling down onto your yard below. While our team will take precautions to minimize the mess and sweep your yard with a metal detector as part of our final inspection to catch any nails, we might still miss things if they get lost in tall grass. In other words, mowing your lawn before any kind of roofing project will make clean-up easier for everyone.
• Make Sure to Get Multiple Quotes- Another thing that your roofing contractor wants you to know is that different roofers will charge different prices, so you should always get more than one estimate or quote for any project. In addition, roofing is one area where it’s wise to invest in quality workmanship, so we would advise against choosing the roofer with the lowest estimate.
• We Have to Work Around the Weather- A third thing that our roofing contractors want you to understand is that the weather affects our ability to work safely. We can’t work while it’s raining, as the wet conditions dramatically increase our risk of falling off the roof, and we also can’t work during extreme heat, as that puts us at risk of heat exhaustion and other health problems. Our team will do our best to finish your project as soon as possible, but please be patient with any delays for bad weather.
