Tips on Hiring a Roofing Contractor

Tips on Hiring a Roofing Contractor

The roof of your home or other premises is the part of the building that takes the biggest battering from the elements. Designed to ensure that water runs away from the roof during a storm, and to keep those inside protected from the elements, the roof is never going to last a lifetime, no matter the type you have.

This is why damaged or old roofs need to be attended to quickly and professionally. A damaged roof that is not correctly repaired or replaced may lead to further damage to your property. For example, if water is pooling on the roof – perhaps due to blocked or damaged gutters – it will seep between the roof tiles and into the loft space. This will in turn cause damage and damp, and may rot the wooden structure inside.

The result will be very costly and necessary repairs, not only to your roof but also to the structures that are in that area of the house.

Why Use Professionals?

As with all home repair jobs, it can be tempting to go the DIY route and try and save some money. Be assured that where the roof is concerned, it is always best to leave the work to professional roofing contractors who have the knowledge, expertise and tools to do the job. In the Woodbridge area you might want to make a note of ADN Roofing LLC, a local roofing company with a  reputation for excellent work at sensible rates.

They can help you with everything to do with roof repairs and installations, including the fitting of skylights and replacement of chimneys – plus much more – and will happily give you a quotation for any work that you need doing.

You can start checking if your roof is in need of attention by looking for some tell-tale signs. Take a walk around your home and look for the following:

  • Obvious signs of water pooling on the roof;
  • Overflowing gutters – an indication of blockage;
  • Damage to the guttering, particularly near the joins;
  • Missing or damage roof tiles.

Any of the above – and you should also take note of damp patches on the outside walls higher up the building – may mean that your roof needs work, and you should call in the experts right away.

Emergency Repairs

If you do see anything obvious then you can rely upon AND Roofing to be there for emergency repairs. They will have someone at your premises as soon as is possible, and make sure your roof is either temporarily or permanently repaired, whichever can be done quickest.

If you need to discuss roofing that needs repairing in other areas of the house – including flat roofs and more – then they will be happy to advise you as to what is the  best course of action to take.

Don’t waste time when you believe your roof is damaged, as you want to have it fixed as quickly as you can before more damage and expense is caused.
