Your homes roof is the most significant part of your house, and its integrity will determine the health of the entire structure. Having a compromised roof can spell an endless amount of issues from the small inconveniences like drafts and inefficient heating and cooling all the way up to major problems like mold and even a roof collapse that could result in injuries or worse. When you have a tile roof, slate roof, you need to hire a custom roofing contractor to fix your roofing damage.
If you are noticing an issue with your roof, you are going to want to find the most qualified and best person to take a look at it and assess the problem and design a plan to fix it completely. I say completely because it’s, unfortunately, all too common to hear of people making the mistake of hiring a less expensive “professional” to fix their roofs issue only to learn later that the entire problem was not fully addressed. When roof issues are only partially solved, the damage festers and become far worse than when it was initially noticed.
We cannot emphasize how important it is to do your research and make sure that you are hiring the most capable and qualified person you can find to come out and take a look at your roof.
You may be tempted to hire a regular roofing contractor instead of a custom roofing contractor to save some money. The problem is that many roofing contractors know enough about roofs and could get the job done eventually. However, what they don’t know about the small details can end up costing you big time. A roofing contractor could mistakenly overlook something because they do not always have enough years of experience working with all of the various roofing materials that are out there. For example, if you have a tile roof, you are going to want to hire someone who is certified in tile roofing. Roofing contractors that are working with roofing materials that they don’t work with very often like slate or copper may not have specialized equipment needed for certain roofing jobs. They will get the equipment eventually, but it’s probably going to delay the job and drive up the cost.
If you think you may have a serious roofing issue with a custom roof like tile, slate or metal, go straight to a custom roofing contractor, but even problems that may not seem that major at first glance may only be the tip of the iceberg and require a higher level of skill to repair them fully. For that reason, you want to get someone out there who knows what they are looking at and has the experience to see the full picture.
No two roofing jobs are the same, and each home has its unique challenges when working with the roof. A custom roofing contractor understands the differences between each roofing type and home and does a thorough job. Custom roofers can give you advice on roofing materials for your specific roof type as well as how it relates to your local climate and weather conditions. A custom roofer has a lot more experience to get the job done efficiently and effectively. It’s so important that you don’t just find a self-professed roofing expert but rather someone who has an excellent reputation.
