Without the proper knowledge, it can be hard to know when your roof needs to be restored. From the ground your roof can look in perfect condition but on closer inspection you may find your roof needs a makeover. At Modern we know what is involved with a good roof restoration and what you need to look out for when shopping around. Before you decide to go ahead with a full restoration make sure you read the points below!
Do Your Research & Shop Around
For many homeowners it can be tempting to accept the first roof restoration company that comes along. While you may be in luck and receive good workmanship for many people this isn’t the case. Make sure you do plenty of research and choose a company that has a good reputation and work history.
Read plenty of reviews and ask around. There is nothing better than seeking information from previous customers.
Ensure An Inspection is Done
Before you are given any sort of quote a thorough inspection of your roof should be done. Your roof restoration company needs to know exactly what condition your roof is in before they advise what work needs to be done. The roofing expert should take the time to point out any cracked or broken tiles, areas of interest and areas that need immediate action.
Get a Written Quote
Once you have found a company you are happy to do your roof restoration make sure you ask for a written quote. A fully comprehensive written quote should state exactly what service your roof restoration company will provide and how much they will charge. While some tradesman may try to make you take their word for it, don’t be fooled.
Speak To Your Tradesman
Take the time to speak to your roof restoration expert before any work starts. Make sure you know exactly what they are going to be doing before any work starts. Your tradesman should walk you through all steps of the job so you know what will happen and how long it will take. Make sure you ask any questions or voice any concerns you may have during this time.
Check with Your Local Council
It is always a good idea to double check roof requirements with your local council. Generally there won’t be any issues but it is better to double check before any work commences. Some councils have restrictions and rules when it comes to roofing so make sure you do a quick check.
Making sure you stick to these 5 tips will ensure your roof restoration goes smoothly. Taking the time to do some research and quick checks will save you in the long run. Modern are the experts in roof restorations and can help you with repairs you may need.
