The Roofing Process
The process of sifting through roofing companies and installing a new roof can seem arduous and stressful, but our roofers are here to ensure not only your satisfaction, but your peace of mind throughout the entire process. We control every aspect of our roofing process to make sure that your roof is installed correctly the first time. We also pride ourselves on making the process as minimal of an impact on your daily routine as possible.
Step One: Call Us
It’s okay to call us if you have questions and you simply need an assessment. Our team is here to give you honest answers—so if your roof only needs a repair and not a replacement, that is what we will tell you. During our estimation time we will be assessing all aspects of the roof ( height, pitch, size) and hear your thoughts and goals so we can get an accurate scope of the project. Once we have all of these items, we will be able to put together an action plan, so we can give you all of the details moving forward, as well as an accurate quote for the project.
Step Two: Roofing Action Plan
With all of the information that we assessed in our estimate, we will present with you a proposal that includes all of the details you will need to know about your upcoming project. We are upfront about the final cost and any extras that could happen along the way. We will discuss the style and color you are looking for as well as the brand that is going to be purchased. This is the time for you to ask as many questions as you want! After this meeting we want you to feel as comfortable as possible beginning the process.
Step 3: Scheduling
Once we have agreed on the action plan and the proposal is signed, we will begin the ordering process. We work with several suppliers in the Albany and Saratoga areas to make sure that we will have a large selection of products to offer. Sometimes we need to order items that aren’t in stock. We will always inform you of product availability and the estimated time for products that are not in stock to arrive. We keep you updated at every turn so you know what to expect in terms of time frame and whether those products will be picked up or delivered directly to your home. One of the biggest factors in scheduling is the weather. We are subject to inclement weather and will always schedule so that the weather is as good as possible. We don’t want to take off your roof in the middle of a snowstorm or in a rainy season.
Step 4: Property Protection
You are allowing us into your home to give you a quality roof. What we don’t want is to disregard everything else in the process. We know you care about your home, your landscape, and any items surrounding your property. Those things are as important to us as they are to you and that is why we promise to treat your home and property as if it were our own. We do our best to protect the landscaping and anything else surrounding your property, so we can leave it even better than when we came.
Step 5: Unseen Damage
The roof decking is something that we assess after the old roofing as been removed. If we find that there is any water damage, we will remove and replace those pieces so that your new roof is protected and performs properly for years to come. If we come across something unexpected in the roof decking, we will come to you immediately with an action plan and any additional costs that may be associated with that damage.
Step 6: Installation Time
Once we have removed the old roof, inspected the roof decking, replaced any necessary pieces, the installation process begins. All of the roofing materials will be installed based on the requirements of its manufacturer. We quality control the entire process and use industry best practices to make sure that everything involved with your roof makes you feel confident about your investment. We want to make sure your roof is perfect the first time so you can feel safe and comfortable.
Step 7: Clean Up
As we mentioned before, our goal is to treat your property as if it were our own. Which means clearing the property of any project related debris so that you can have peace of mind and have your property back exactly how it was pre-project. We want you to enjoy your new roof, not worry about needing to clean up your property. We respect you and we respect your property!
Keep in mind this is a general outline of how the process goes. If you have any questions or want a more in-depth discussion on the roofing process, fill out the form or give us a call! We look forward to partnering with you!
