Frequently Asked Roofing Questions
Not necessarily. Leaks can result from flashings that have come loose or a section of the roof system being damaged. A complete roof system failure, however, generally is irreversible and can be the result of improper installation or choice of materials or the roof system installation is inappropriate for the home or building.
Most work should not be done yourself. Professional roofing contractors are trained to safely and efficiently repair or replace roof systems. You can damage your roof system by using improper roofing techniques and severely injure yourself by falling off or through the roof. Preman Roofing has highly trained roof installation specialists and safety is a top priority to our company and our clients.
Maintenance performed by home and building owners should be confined to inspecting roof systems during the fall and spring to check for cracked or curling shingles and cleaning gutters filled with dead leaves and other debris. If you must inspect your roof system yourself, use a firmly braced or tied-off ladder equipped with rubber safety feet. Wear rubber-soled shoes and stay on the ladder (and off the roof system), if possible. Preman Roofing offers an inspection service if you are uncomfortable or unable to inspect your roof.
For our residential clients, once we initiate work for a roof replacement, a 50% deposit is needed after we have done the tear off of your old roof. Upon completion of your new roof installation, the balance of the cost is due.
Commercial roof replacements need at least a 10% deposit to start the work. We will bill you in increments as the work progresses.
It is not in your best interest to do that. Some product materials have been known to have defects in them. Our team stays on top of industry information in order to eliminate use of materials like this. If you were to inadvertently purchase these on your own for use on your home, it could cost you much more than you ever expected. When a home owner wants to supply their own material, it is also easy to not have the right amount needed and Preman Roofing is unable to provide a manufacturers warranty on these self purchased products.
Preman Roofing specialists have years of experience in knowing how to determine which products are best for your type of home, they understand how to estimate the amount of materials needed and by having our professional team provide the materials, we are able to offer a manufacturers materials warranty in addition to our workmanship warranty. This helps us complete your job on time, on budget and with the expert level of workmanship you deserve.
