How to Find a Professional Roofing Contractor
Or You Might Spend the Next 10 Years Wishing You Did
Most homeowners only hire a roofing contractor every 10 years or more and many don’t know how to compare proposals or what questions to ask to evaluate each company.
The roofing trade requires continuous learning about new materials and construction methods that, in many cases, will save the homeowner on energy costs, labor costs and add to the longevity of your roof.
Roofing materials and installation methods have all changed dramatically in the last 5 to 10 years. Each new product requires training to ensure the proper installation.
Galla-Rini Roofing hires and trains all of our roofers in our installation methods. Miles trains each crew member and never leaves them to learn on their own. We believe that our approach to training means we have loyal and dedicated employees that are committed to our methods.
If this is the main way you will decide, you are very likely to end up with a roof that leaks or tiles or shingles that come loose in the next year.
The following caution is from the CSLB website:
“Do not automatically accept the lowest bid. In fact, you should beware of any bid that is substantially lower than the others. It probably indicates that the contractor made a mistake or is not including all the work quoted by his or her competitors.
You may be headed for a dispute with your contractor if you accept an abnormally low bid. It also is possible that a low-bidding contractor may cut corners or do substandard work to make a profit.”
Estimates that are written on the back of a business card are worthless – because all you will know is the price.
We will meet with you so we can ask specific questions to make sure we understand your roofing needs. We then climb up on every roof and conduct a physical examination of your roof. At that point we will prepare a written proposal for your review.
The roofing industry in Orange County is competitive but price should not be the most important factor in your decision especially since your roof should provide you with a minimum of 10 years of worry free protection from the elements.
We back up our work with a 10-year warranty on labor/installation that is almost double what most of our competitors offer.
I chose Galla-Rini Roofing because their reputation is honesty, integrity and solid workmanship. My new roof just pops with the exterior paint color I chose to co-ordinate an entire new look. The Galla-Rini roofers worked with the tenting company to ensure timely protection against termites, while the new boards were being placed.
Every day clean-up was a real plus for safety and neatness. I am so pleased with the new roof, and the new look it affords my home. No more leaks and good people with whom I could trust completely. Thank you Miles and all your good workers.
