Napa Roofers Explain the Benefits of Choosing Professional Roofing Services

Why Choose a Professional & Insured Roofer?

Roofs see a lot of damage over their lifetime. After hailstorms, falling tree branches, and general wear-and-tear, every roof eventually needs replacing. It’s a situation that makes every homeowner shudder and worry about sticker shock. Many a homeowner looks for a way to find an affordable solution to roof repairs and replacement, but often make the mistake of going without an insured roofing contractor.

Before choosing to cut corners, it’s important that every homeowner understand the benefits of choosing an insured roofing contractor.

State Requirements

The job site of any roofing job gets messy. Old roof materials include nails, asphalt, wood, and other materials. Powertools, cords, and other tools are often scattered around the area. There’s usually a team of several contractors on the roof, a couple of ladders, and other obstacles around. Suffice to say, roofing repair can be busy and messy work. Accidents can happen on these job sites, but a qualified (and legal) roofer is prepared for those situations.

Most states require that roofing contractors maintain general liability insurance for any accidents that may occur on the job site to homeowners or the roofers. General liability does more than protect the roofer, it allows the roofer to pay for any damages to the home or its owners. This means that if any damages occur, homeowners won’t have to take their roofer to the courtroom or be stuck with the bills themselves, they’re protected under state law.

Working on a roof yourself or with a handy DIYer may save a couple of bucks at first, but any injury that occurs or any damage that happens to the home ends up being your responsibility.

Reputation Matters

When roofers have a reputation, it matters. Consider how often you go out of your way to give good reviews or even bad reviews to a company on the internet. It doesn’t happen much. So, if a roofing company has a great reputation online or with the Better Business Bureau, it means that their work impressed a customer so much that their clients took the time out of their day to share their experience.

Those reviews are worth your time to listen to! The quality of work, customer service, affordability, and efficiency of roofers are frequently found in their review sections. More importantly, insured contractors have to maintain a good reputation. Complaints and poor work can directly impact the roofer’s ability to maintain and even obtain insurance and stay legally in business. Be sure to consider the reputation of a roofing company before working with them.

Peace of Mind

There’s a certain level of surety that comes with working with a professional roofing company that a DIY job simply cannot provide.

The quality that a professional roofer brings to a job shouldn’t be overlooked. They will be familiar with the best materials for your local environment and will be able to work with you to find the right colors, textures, and designs to suit your home’s aesthetic, all while maintaining the quality of the work and materials. This quality is essential to maintaining many home insurance policies, which will only cover repairs to a roof that was professionally installed and up to the local building ordinance code.

It’s also important to remember that a roof is a long-term investment. Selling a home can become a nightmare when a shoddy or illegal roofing job holds up the deal; most realtors would require that the roof be replaced by a professional before listing a property.

Additionally, most professional roofing companies provide a warranty to protect and stand by their work. Roofing repairs, roof leaking protection, and other roofing damages are frequently protected by the warranty for a length of time. When work is warrantied, it means the homeowner needs to worry less about an early need for roof replacement.
