Posted on August 27, 2019 by baker-admin

Today there is a huge amount of information available on the internet in the forms of articles and video. This is a wonderful thing for many people who subscribe to the DIY methods.  However, sometimes it can be too much too quick, and you might be wondering, when is it appropriate to call a roofing contractor?

If You Need Roof Repair

Some roof repairs are fairly easy to perform, while others are much more difficult. The real problem becomes determining which repairs are easy and which will lead you hopping down the rabbit hole. For example, a blown off or bent shingle may seem easy enough to repair on your own. One would think that all you need to do is hop on the roof and put in a nail or two but that wouldn’t be the right solution.  This repair would need a little more finesse than just a few nails. It would be likely that the shingle was damaged due to it being brittle and this could mean as you are working on the damaged shingle you might actually start to cause damage to the neighboring shingles and start a domino effect of damage.  If your roof is already more than 10 years old, it may be more beneficial to call a roofing contractor out to your home for a proper roof inspection and repair recommendations.

Call a Roofing Contractor for Roof Replacement

Replacing a roof is a ton of hard, hot and dirty work. This certainly not work for the novice roofer.  Even small mistakes could cost thousands of dollars to your home and property.  However, if you need to replace a roof on a shed this may not be as big of an issue. This might be a risk worth taking if you don’t have valuables stored in the shed. After all, garden tools are meant to get dirty. But if you are needing your home’s roof replaced it would be appropriate to call roofing contractors to give you an estimate.

Consult a Professional When Choosing a New Roofing System

Choosing a new or different roofing system for your home is definitely the right time to call a roofing contractor. There are many different types of roofing systems and materials, all with their own unique pros and cons. It is incredibly important to understand each system you are interested in and how they will meet your needs. Some materials can save money on your insurance premiums, while other materials may cause some conflict with insurance claims in the event of a hailstorm.

Call a Roofing Contractor After a Major Storm

You will definitely want to contact a roofing contractor that can inspect the roof, meet the insurance adjuster and make sure that the insurance pays for everything that they should.
