Any building is considered incomplete without a roof overhead, as it is one of the most important part of a home or any building.

The roof is an integral aspect of the building that provides protection against wind, rain, light, cold, and other such weather conditions. Roofs are usually designed by keeping in mind the purpose of the building and thus the materials used to build it change accordingly. The most commonly used roofing style in the North America are shingles. Shingles is actually a style of roofing that includes layers of rectangular shaped materials that are layered from the bottom edge of the roof up, with each successive course overlapping the joints below. The materials used to make these roofs differ depending on the need.

Your building is a big investment. Make sure your investment is safe.

When putting a new roof on a home or building, it’s important to understand the different types of roofs, roofing ventilation, and maintenance required with the roof for a residential or commercial property. The type of roof installed should be appropriate for the climate it will withstand and the budget allocated for the roofing.

  1. If one of your options if taking bids for your roofing project, make sure to not accept the lowest bid right away. Consult with the contractor mainly about material quality being used since a low price can be a reflection of poor and cheap quality materials. Also try to make sure you are guaranteed with high quality work.
  2. Undergo a small background research to find out how long the contractor has been in business. Do they get any reviews, compliments, maybe even complaints? You want to make sure the contractor has a formal established business and that you can easily find them in a future in case you need them.
  3. On the same lines, assure yourself that the company is licensed; you don’t want to be hiring an illegal roofing contractor. Therefore also check that the contractor has been insured, one without insurance coverage can leave you open to any and all sort of risks (damage to your property, injuries of people around) causing to not respond to these incidents.
  4. Get references either from the contractor or people who you know that have had experience with them. Experiences are always good to hear. Be aware that if any of these references come from the contractor, it will most likely be from happy customers.
  5. You can also find unsatisfied customers consulting the Better Business Bureau. If you come along any reference from an unsatisfied customer, it’s always good to know how the business responded to their unsatisfaction.
  6. Always good to have a fluid communication with your contractor in order to talk about your project and contractual terms with no misunderstandings.
  7. Assure yourself to hire a contractor that will guarantee his work. You want a written guarantee for any possible damages during installation.
  8. Learn about what training skills the business offers to their employees and what safety training programs are they involved in. A company is only as good as the workers they employ.
  9. Ask if the roofing company cleans up the job site once they are entirely finished. If any old materials have to be picked up, is the company in charge of clearing up the area, if so, when? And is there any
  10. Be on the safe side. If anything, it’s always good to have any negotiation written down in case something goes wrong, or unexpected thing occurs.

Have a roofing question? Here are answer to some of the most common questions.

I want to remove the molds in my roof, how do I do it?

What is most vital is to ensure maximum safety precautions are put in place when walking on top of the roof. It is very dangerous to walk on a roof without protective gear. Therefore, the most appropriate person to do such would be an expert. In case a homeowner decides to do it by themselves, the first step should be to identify the exact problem, the term “moss” is too general. It is not recommended to use high pressure spray on a roof, then coating the roof. It is not an effective method to increase the lifespan of a roof.

My roof, made of cedar, is more than 10 years old. I have been advised that by sealing the roof, it will extend its life by 10 years, is it OK to do so?

No, do not do it! Sealing the roof is one possibility, but NOT a recommended lasting solution. Doing this will actually reduce the life of the roof. Allowing anyone other than proven experts on the roof could cause more harm than good to the current problems.
