What You Should Be Asking Your Sarasota Roofing Contractor

Nail gun and shingles

Whether you have experience dealing with Sarasota roofing contractors or not, when starting a new roof replacement project or repair project it’s important to ask the right questions. While roofing is not rocket science, it can be daunting to find the right roofing contractor for the job. You don’t want to choose a contractor who just meets the minimum standards. Below is 7 things you should ask your Sarasota roofing contractor before starting your next roofing project.

1.) Do I need to replace or is a repair possible?

Sadly, many Sarasota Roofing Contractors will pitch you a roof replacement when in fact your roof can just be repaired or a smaller sections replaced instead of the entire roof. Knowing the severity of the issues along with key information like roof age & roof type will lead you in a direction to know if repair is possible before replacement. A 20 year old shingle roof with several leaks in different areas will probably need replaced, but a 10 year old shingle with a few leaks over the garage may just need repaired or a smaller section replaced. Talk to your Sarasota roofing contractor about the details of the leaks & issues and find out if a repair is available instead of replacing the entire roof.

2.) Do you have references?

Repair vs Replace? It pays to know what you want

Repair vs Replace? It pays to know what you want

So your roof is leaking, it needs to be repaired right? Maybe or maybe not. Do you know the age of your roof? What type of roofing system does your home have? There is a lot of points to consider when it comes to either repairing or replacing a roof, and knowing what you want and need beforehand will give you a head start in getting an appropriate estimate.

Choosing whether to repair leaks and issues with your existing roof or to invest in a new one can be a hard decision. Today’s economy is uncertain.. Most homeowners have the tendency to just patch up a leak and make do with what they have in hopes that it will solve their roofing problems, at least for a little while. However, when you’re thinking about roofing, that might not be the best idea. If your roof has needed several repairs over the years, is leaking on a large scale, is exposed to strong sunlight (we are in Florida after all!), or is more than 15 years old (Shingle roofs in particular), replacement is likely the best option. Advanced new roofing materials are energy-efficient and will keep you protected better than the roofing material your roof probably currently has, and will also save you money on bills in the future.
