When you are unsure about the extent of damage, you can always contact your home owner’s insurance company and have someone come and assess the roof damage. If a natural disaster was the culprit behind your damaged roof, you will be delighted to know that the cost of replacing your old roof is going to be covered by the insurance company.
Next, find a really experienced roofing company that has a proper license or is bonded and can provide you a proof of insurance. To know whether the roofing company is really good at what they are doing, you can always find out about the list of homes that have their roof replacements recently completed by the company.
You can always call your friends, neighbors or co-workers for further recommendations. If your roof damage is caused by a natural phenomenon, chances are high that other people who live around you are fussing about their roof problems too. Talk with them as they may have the details about which company you should go for and which to avoid.
Narrow down the list of the possible roofing companies that you want to three or four and make appointments to speak with them. Find out about the warranty that is offered and payment methods. You can begin comparing prices from the different roofing companies. Help the roofing people to estimate the total cost by allowing them to measure and assess the roof of your home.
When you have finally made a decision, sign a contract with the selected company. A roof replacement usually takes one or more days to complete. You can always schedule the work at a time when you will not be at home so that you won’t have to deal with the noise.
