Why it is Important to Hire a Licensed, Professional Roofer

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO HIRE A LICENSED, PROFESSIONAL ROOFER?

You get what you pay for. By hiring an unlicensed contractor, you are giving up many of the benefits that come with choosing a licensed contractor.

Licensed contractors:

  • Know the industry – If a contractor has a license, you automatically know that they know the latest and best practices for roof installation, repair, and maintenance, including all relevant permitting rules. Bottom line: Your chances forgetting the work on your roof done right the first time are much greater!
  • Offer a contract – Licensed roofers always provide written contracts detailing the scope of the project, the materials to be purchased, and the timeline for the installation, making it easy for you to hold the roofer accountable.
  • Carry insurance – Insurance protects you against being liable for costs should a worker damage your property or become injured on the job.
  • Can get better quality materials – Professionals are experienced at buying materials. They know which materials are right for your roof and the best place to go to get the best prices.

Metal Roof

Reasons to Choose a Metal Roof

REASONS TO CHOOSE A METAL ROOF

Longevity A metal roof can last up to 70 years. Traditional asphalt roofing materials have an estimate life expectancy of 12-20 years.
Durability Some metal roofs can sustain wind gusts up to 140 miles per hour. They will also not corrode or crack, and may be impact resistant. Metal roofs do not need periodic maintenance that other roofing materials often require. However, they should be inspected periodically to make sure no repairs are required.
Safety Metal roofs will not spark and ignite into flames in the event of a wildfire or lightning strike.
Energy Efficiency Metal roofs reflect solar radiant heat, which can reduce cooling costs by 10-25%.
Environmentally friendly Metal roofs have 25-95% recycled content, but are also 100% recyclable at the end of their life as a roof. In contrast, most shingle tear-off waste ends up as part of the building-related waste stream – up to 20 billion pounds a year.
