Wedgefield Re-Roofing: Common Mistakes You Need to Avoid
Putting off repairs or roof replacements
We know replacing a roof, or even just repairing it, can sometimes be out of your budget. The truth is, failing to address roof damage right away means that the issue is not going to go anywhere – and it will only get worse. A compromised roof can turn into some big problems:
- Major structural damage from leaks
- Aging shingles that fail to protect your home from severe weather
- An out-of-date roof that decreases the value of your home or commercial building
- And more
Advantage Roofing provides convenient financing options, so that you never have to make the choice between ignoring your damaged roof or draining your savings account. You can check your rates without hurting your credit score, take advantage of fixed monthly payments, and there are no payment penalties. It’s easy to start a Wedgefield re-roofing project with us.
Attempting to DIY roof repairs or replacements
It’s not uncommon for us to get called in to take over an attempted roof replacement. Roofing is difficult, time-consuming, and dangerous – requiring homeowners to spend hours on steeply sloped roofs and use tools they may not be familiar with.
Our roofing contractors have been installing roofs on a daily basis for years. Our experience makes us highly skilled and efficient, often allowing us to complete your Wedgefield re-roofing project in just a few days.
Working with unlicensed contractors
If your roofing contractor doesn’t have a roofing license or insurance, this is a huge red flag. Like we mentioned, spending hours up on a roof isn’t the safest activity, and an uninsured contractor who is injured during a roof replacement or repair could try and hold the property owner liable for their medical bills and other costs.
Not only that, but contractors who don’t go through the proper procedures to maintain state licensure will only do the same with your roof. Leaving you to deal with inadequate workmanship, poorly installed materials, and a roof that won’t last.
