When it comes to getting your roof repaired or replaced, you’ll read a lot of horror stories online about things going bad. We won’t lie. Things do go bad. However, a good roofer will take care of you from start to finish. This starts with explaining how the roofing process goes, who your contact person is along the way, and more. Let’s look at how the basic roofing process works so you know what to expect.
How the Roofing Process Works
Before work is even done, or a contract is signed, a reliable roofer will send a salesperson out to your home to inspect your roof. This salesperson will get on your roof and do a thorough physical inspection to determine what is wrong. From there, they will give you a written estimate that details the work to be done and the potential cost. If you are filing an insurance claim, they will explain those details to you, too.
From there, if you accept the propose, you can sign a contract with the roofer. They will get all the details aligned for the job, including ordering materials and scheduling a start date. Once the materials are delivered, a crew will arrive within a few days to a week’s time to begin work on your roof. Depending on the size of the roof, the work could be done in a day to a week. Your salesperson will give you a more accurate timeline based on the specifics of your roof and situation.
During this process, you’ll typically be in contact with your salesperson and a manager in the office. They will coordinate scheduling, answer any questions you have, and ensure you’re comfortable with how the company is repairing or replacing your roof. If any issues arise during the process, you’ll contact your salesperson or manager to let them know. They’ll tackle the issue for you so that everything is in good shape by the time the job is done.
After the roof is complete, the crew will clean up your property and make sure it was left the way it was before they began work. Any additional questions or concerns you have will be addressed by your salesperson. That’s what you can expect from a reliable roofing job.
