Safety is priority one when roof repair is involved. Attempting leak repairs during rainstorms can cause serious injuries. Use a bucket to catch the water until you can fix the problem.
Cut the grass a little while before the roofing contractor arrives to remove the roof. Shorter grass will make it easier to locate and pick up any nails that are removed from the roofing materials. Short grass also makes a magnetic nail finder work much more efficiently.
When you’re trying to hire someone to do roofing work for you, you need to check on their background references. When they give references, ask homeowners that they’ve worked for about how they felt, in terms of their quality and work value. It’s a good idea to check out the work for your own peace of mind. You can drive by their other houses and check them out so you know if you want to hire them.
Friends, family and co-workers should be your first resource when choosing a roofing contractor. Make sure you question them on a contractor’s costs, service level, and craftsmanship. Inquire about how well the yard was cleaned up and what type of guarantee they received as well.
