New Year’s resolutions are a tradition that is shared the world over for thousands of years, dating back to the Babylonians! From reaffirming loyalty to their gods to promising to pay back debt and return borrowed objects, their resolutions weren’t so different from ours, it’s all about making our lives better!
For many homeowners, resolving to fix things that have long been put off or neglected is a common resolution and if your roof is one of yours we have good news for you!
Whether you need to get your roof repaired or replaced or just clean it up a bit, there has never been a better time to get your roof in shape than right now! Start the next decade out right, without roofing problems!
Get An Estimate (or 3) Of What You Need
Every homeowner can afford to take the first step to having a worry-free roof, starting with getting an estimate of what it will take to get the job done. Many roof contractors like Atlanta Roofing Specialists largely offer free estimates* without obligation. Do your homework and get 3 estimates or more to ensure you are getting the best your area has to offer.
Many roof’s are similar, but every roof has something that sets it apart. Whether it’s special materials, custom constructed areas, or even the way it’s constructed. This estimate will will give your roof contractor a full picture of your roofs current state and allow them to make informed suggestions and ensure your new (or newly repaired) roof is as perfect as it can be.
After the inspection is completed, your roof contractor should take the time to explain all the important aspects of your roof. They will point out any problems or areas of improvement, and answer any questions you may have.
If any work is needed, you are provided with a detailed estimate. If you have multiple estimates from other roof contractors, compare them and don’t be afraid to ask them questions!
Any temporary fixes, such as tarp, if needed, should be arranged and provided by the contractor.
Get It All Fixed or Replaced
If your initial inspection reveals any problems or your roof contractor points out areas that need improvement, have these done as soon as possible. Many major repairs start as small holes, missing shingles, or simply clogged gutters. While these aren’t big problems on their own, if neglected long enough, can grow in size (and costs) and just makes things worse.
By this point, you’ve done your homework and gotten the estimates, it’s time to pick a roof contractor and get it done. The rest is left to you.
Ongoing Regular Roof Maintenance
Once your roof is in shape, your roof contractor can tailor a customized maintenance plan that includes regular inspections to keep your roof in top shape while ensuring you are compliant with your warranty and insurance policies for years, even decades to come!
