A number of factors are considered when estimating the cost of replacing a roof. But as a general rule the following elements will determine the cost regardless of the contractor you choose:
Whatever roof you choose, this is certain: You're going to need someone in your corner to trust. A contractor that will take the time to help you explore your options, stay within your budget, install a roof that WON'T LEAK, looks good, and lasts, correct? If this rings true for you then give us a shot at earning your business. From tear-off to clean up, you'll be glad you did.
To be fair, all jobs are scheduled in the order in which we receive signed contracts, unless you request an installation time beyond our current backlog.
Re-roofs typically take 2-4 days to complete, depending on the size and complexity of the job and the agreeability of Mother Nature.
A good rule of thumb regarding roofing start dates is this: For every day of poor weather during your countdown, add another day to the arrival of your crew.
We enjoy working outdoors, and are about as agile and good balanced as they come. But roofing is a dangerous occupation, particularly in wet and windy weather. Therefore, to protect our crews and not expose your roof's decking to unnecessary water damage, our policy is to not remove any more shingles than can be replaced on any given day.
Interior: If you use your attic or garage for storage, you may want to cover or remove selected items before we begin our work. During re-roofing we sometimes find boards that are not tight, allowing small pieces of dirt and debris to fall inside as we remove your old roof and install a new one.
Remember, too, that vibrations (primarily hammering) may shake items off your shelves or walls. To safeguard your pictures, plates, figurines, etc. we recommend that you safeguard them until our work has been completed.
Exterior: At A-Line Roofing we have a long history of hiring crew members that are proud of their work, pleasant to be around, and respectful of your possessions. Likewise, if we notice something on your property that may be damaged by falling debris, we'll either cover or move it, if possible. Nevertheless, we ask you to please remove any portable items (i.e. potted plants, patio furniture, toys, etc.) located near the perimeter of your home before our arrival. If you have special concerns, (i.e. flower beds, bushes, driveway space, etc.) please bring them to our attention before we begin and we'll be certain to address them.
Finally, due to the novelty associated with roofing, and the heights at which we perform our work, it's no surprise that our efforts attract the attention of onlookers. To avoid unnecessary accidents, we ask that you notify any children or neighbors to steer clear of the work area until our job and a thorough yard and driveway clean-up is completed.
If you want your project done right the first time, work with us. We pay attention to details -- so much so that we're considered "picky" by our suppliers and "perfectionists" by our crew members. It's a reputation we take great pride in having achieved.
Also, if you lack knowledge about residential contracting and don't want to be preyed upon, work with us. There are fast-talking, self-serving wolves in any profession, including ours, and we've made it a point to walk a different path.
Finally, if you want the assurance of a job well done, and the satisfaction that your hard-earned dollars have been wisely spent, consider doing the following:
Take the time to explore our website (there's a lot of good information here to get you rolling) and write down a list of questions that come to mind. Then CONTACT US for a free, no-obligation assessment of your project, followed by a thoughtful conversation to address your questions and explore your options.
Remember, when all is said and done, you're going to need more than estimates left inside your front door. What you'll need most of all is someone to rely on -- someone to trust.
We hope to be that "someone." And we hope to do it by "earning" your respect, and exceeding your expectations.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
