It seems like El Niño has been the weather buzzword this winter! Everyone is discussing how it will effect certain areas of the country. Each morning we see the storms and flooding around the nation that El Niño has caused. So far the effect that El Niño has had on the Valley is minor, but we are still looking at a few more months of possible rain and storms ahead of us due to this natural weather phenomenon. If you’ve been meaning to schedule roofing services, now’s the time to get it done! The next round of storms that travel through Phoenix might not be as forgiving and you could end up with some serious damage to not only your roof, but your home.
Roofing Services in Phoenix, AZ
You want the roof above your head to be sturdy, solid and in good condition ready to protect you from whatever mother nature throws your way, especially during “El Niño.” During this time, the weather is extremely unpredictable and can quickly take a turn for the worst. If you roof isn’t up to par, you will be dealing with some unfortunate consequences that could cost you! So how do you know if your roof is ready to withstand these El Niño storms?
Whether it is an El Niño year or not, it’s important to get your home’s roof inspected on a regular basis. It is a good rule of thumb to have it looked at 2 times a year, in the spring and fall. During these inspections, your roof will be searched for any blemishes or weak areas that have been caused by previous storms, sun, trees, etc. Once these areas are identified, the roofing inspector will be able to tell you if repairs can be made or if it would be more logical to replace the roof all together. Roofs that are damaged or have areas in need of repair will only further deteriorate overtime if no action is taken.
Repairing your roof could be an easy fix or a massive undertaking all depending on the extent of the repairs needed and the type of roofing that you have. The cost of roofing repairs can be determined by different factors such as the type of roof, unique features, and the size.However extensive your roofing repair may be, the bottom line is that in order to protect your home and avoid even more costly damages, repairs are necessary.
If your roof has so serious damage, you might be looking at replacement. It is difficult for a homeowner to know when to replace their roof. Just because you are aware of water or other types of damage to your roof doesn’t necessarily mean that replacement is necessary so don’t jump the gun. Instead, make sure to have a roofing contractor inspect the roof and give you a professional opinion. If you are looking at replacement, make sure to choose a type of residential roofing that is right for your home and climate. Here in Phoenix, AZ you have many roofing options such as tile, shingles, and foam.
Whether you are in need of roofing inspections, repair, or replacement, the one thing to remember is to find a quality roofing company that can help you through this process. Professional roofers have the trained eye to spot weakened areas of your roof, provide quality repair work instead of sloppy fixes, and the experience to install a brand new roof if needed. But beware, roofing contractors vary in quality! Make sure you are choosing a roofing company that will take care of your roofing needs quickly and at a fair price.
Finding a Quality Roofing Contractor
There are many factors to consider when searching for that perfect roofing contractor. First and foremost, before hiring anyone make sure you feel comfortable with them. Call them on the phone and speak with someone from the company. Check out their website, videos, reviews and other easy-to-access information. Ask around! Talk to neighbors, family, and friends to see if they have had any experience with roofing contractors and if they have any recommendations for you.
Entering into a contract with a roofing company is a big decision and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Keep in mind to use a variety of sources. Don’t just call the first company you see on Yelp, and don’t choose from online reviews alone.
Do your research
Choosing the right roofing company for your inspection, repair, or replacement can make your life easier or can cause a huge headache depending on the quality and customer service level of the company. Do your research and choose wisely. Look for a company with years of experience and who is licensed, bonded, and insured!
Price shouldn’t be the bottom line
As we’ve all heard and many of us have had to learn the hard way, “You get what you pay for.” This is especially true when it comes to the service industry. Price should definitely be considered when choosing a contractor, but shouldn’t be the end all determining factor. Your roof isn’t something you want to take a chance with, so when it comes to the company with the lowest bid, make sure they can deliver on their promises.
