Knowing how long a roofer has been in the business and had the business may tell you a little about their qualifications. Just because the roofing company advertises a million years of experience, or they have been in business for a million years does not make it so.
Were they in the roofing business in another state and decided recently to move
here and set up a new roofing company? If so, maybe you should look into just how long they have been roofing by the required application techniques that establish the codes here in Florida. All states do not require the same roofing procedures as we do here in Florida. Our methods are far more stringent in order to reduce roof damage from the storms and the amount of rainfall we receive each year.
city's building department can inform you of how long the business has been operating. The State can deliver information about how long the roofer has been certified by doing a quick license search. But now what about his people?
It would be very unusual for there to be several license holders on every crew. In fact, the license holder is generally limited to the boss who may not actually get up on
your roof. This is where good supervision comes into play. You should insist that the progress of the crew be observed from the roof at least once a day so that the mistakes that cost you money later on do not happen. Your roof is only as good as the focus of the men and attention to the details at the time they are putting it on. It is easy to cover things up that will only come back to haunt you
later. An inexperienced roofer can make the kind of mistakes that are not made by an experienced and professional roofer. This means that experienced workers must be present at the time the roof work is being performed. The time before mistakes are made and additional work is required or overlooked.
If you don't believe that you are getting the adequate supervision that you believe to be necessary,
then allow us to help you. If you just want to know whether the roof work is being done correctly, we will be glad to verify that all codes are being respected and that you are getting your money's worth. It doesn't take long to survey the work being performed and an extra pair of eyes can assist in decisions that mean doing a little extra at the trouble areas so that you have the best roof that you
had hoped for.
