Why You Should Hire a Certified Roofing Contractor

Delaware County PA Rooferss – There are several things that can affect the life expectancy of a roof, including the type of roof on the structure, the quality of the roofing materials and the weather. With routine maintenance, a room can last for many years.

Roofing materials can last between 10 years and 100 years, depending on the materials used. For example, metal roofs will last approximately 40 years. Wood shake roofs will last anywhere from 10 to 40 years, asphalt shingles typically last around 20 years and slate roofs will last approximately 100 years.

A leaky roof can occur when small cracks form in the roofing material. Water can collect and drip into the interior of the house. In order to find what is causing the leak, a roof inspection may need to be done.

A certified roofing contractor will inspect your roof and determine the extent of the damage and how to prevent further damage to your home and its inhabitants. Annual roof inspections by a certified roofing professional should be performed as the weather (snow, rain, wind, sunlight, heat, hail and cold) can affect roof materials and cause them to break down.

Properly vented soffits and roofs will prevent moisture reduction and overheat, both of which can cause the roofing material to break down faster.

How to Select a Qualified Roofing Contractor

An experienced and certified roofing professional will offer a number of services. The contractor will offer complete tear offs and replacements and inspections and certifications of your existing roof. When a roof is inspected and certified, the roofing contractor is “guaranteeing” that the roof will function properly for a certain period of time; typically 2 years. During this time, the contractor will make any repairs that are needed.

A certified roofing contractor is very knowledgeable on the different types of roofs, the materials used and the installation processes. Additionally, the roofing contractor will ensure that the roof is properly vented to avoid premature damage to your roof.

When interviewing a roofing contractor, ask if they are licensed, bonded and insured. You will want to understand their insurance coverage and make sure that the insurance is up to date. Determine the roofing products that they are licensed and approved to install and the warranty they provide. Finally, determine if they are a member of national and region trade organizations.

There are numerous resources available to help you find a quality roofing contractor. Read referrals about roofing contractors in your area, visit a local licensing agency to ensure the contractor’s license is up to date and read reviews about roofing contractors available in your area.
