What about that roof! Irving and other areas of the metroplex had a major hail storm on Tuesday night. My roof is a total loss as are many others in the area. Please advise your clients to be careful when selecting a roofing company. Here are the things to be aware of:
- Are they local? If not, how do they handle warranty issues?
- How long is their leak warranty? Yes, there are two warranties on a roof. One from the shingle manufacturer which covers the shingles only. No labor/installation. Two, provided by the installer can range from 1 to 5 years and should cover leaks/installation issues for any reason other than acts of God.
- Do they have references? And, how long have those people been clients? If they just put the roof on, the reference isn’t worth much.
- When do they want to do the work? If immediately, be careful, we are at the beginning of the hail season. You don’t want to have two claims and pay two deductibles in the same year. Temporary repairs can be made that will last a month or two. That is what I have done at my house.
