Tile roofing is a specialized roofing project, especially in Wisconsin since most roofing contractors have more experience installing asphalt shingle roofing. So if you have a building that requires tile, or clay roofing that needs replacing, it is important to invest in a company that knows how to work with this unique and beautiful style of roofing. Here is what you need to know about hiring a professional tile roofing company in Wisconsin.
- Employee Safety – There are certain rules that roofing installers need to follow to ensure the homeowner or building owner is not liable if there is an accident. Since most tile roofs are on older buildings with a steeper roof, it is especially important to make sure that you hire a roofing contractor that is passionate about following the safety rules.
- Experienced Roofers – A tile or clay roofing project is not a DIY project! Ask for photos of previous projects to make sure the contractor has worked with tile roofing products. If they have actually done tile roofs, they have most likely taken many pictures since there is such a unique beauty in a newly installed tile roof.
- Another tip: Experienced tile roofers will not only be able to get the job done right, but they will be able to get the job done in less time because they will know how to work with these kinds of roofing materials.
- Work Quality – A clay or tile replacement roof is not a cheap investment. It is a roofing product that lasts much longer than asphalt and looks nicer for longer than metal but there is a higher cost to it. Find a specialty roofing contractor that takes pride in the quality of their work. One way to find out about the quality of their work is to ask for a list of references. A good roofing contractor will have at least one reference that you can contact if you have any questions. One important question to ask is if the roofing company kept their work areas clean, this is especially important if it is for a business and you want to make sure your building is kept safe for customers or employees.
