Comparing Proposals

blog proposals

When soliciting multiple proposals, be sure you are comparing apples to apples. You may think you are saving money upfront, but in reality the materials, workmanship, or warranty are coming up short in the long run.

Four (4) items to check your proposals for:

  1. Materials to be used (as required): sheeting, underlayment, metal, roofing material, vents and ridge, etc.
  2. Warranties: workmanship and material.
  3. Liability Insurance: This protects you and the contractor; and, unfortunately, it’s one of the first expenses cut by depressed and failing businesses. If you are not sure, ask for a copy of the certificate.
  4. Payment Terms: be sure you understand what you are responsible for and when.

Roof Tips

  • Inspect Twice a Year >

    A frequent inspection is the most important preventative maintenance measure you can take to ensure your roof lasts for a long time. You should check your roof a minimum of twice a year, in early spring and late fall.

  • Stay Off the Roof >

    Walking on the roof can reduce it's lifespan. If you must walk on the roof, take extreme care, wear rubber soled shoes and make sure the roof is dry.

  • Keep it Clean >

    Keep your roof and gutters clear of leaves, twigs and other debris.  Debris impairs the natural drainage of water and trapped water will rot a roof faster than anything else.

  • Algae, Moss & Mildew >

    In addition to looking bad, algae, moss and mildew can trap moisture and shorten the life of your roof. Soaking the affected area with a diluted chlorine bleach solution, then pressure washing can be effective in removing these damaging growths.
