A Good Vancouver Roofer Provides More Than Roofing

vancouver-rooferAny Vancouver roofer may repair, redo or install your roofing, but a truly professional company will be extra willing to provide helpful information and a number of significant safeguards.

Here are several things to look for when shopping for an all-round excellent roofing company to take on your project.

A Vancouver Roofer Should be Reliable

Some of the important things to know about your roofer are:

Recommendations:

Testimonials and recommendations about the professionalism and competence of the Vancouver roofer you are considering are very helpful, especially if they are from the residential individuals or commercial companies who have been clients of the roofer.

Warranty:

Look for a warranty on materials and on labour.

Education for you:

Find a roofer that will educate YOU enough about your roof issues so that you can make the right choices.

Training:

You will want a roofer that trains its workers, and does not just pick up stray people for various jobs. There are many different kinds of roofs, from Asphalt Shingles to Cedar Shingles to tar and gravel; and modern methods including EDPM and TPO products for flat roofs. Steep slopes, flat roofs, gables, arched roofs, chimneys and other protrusions, gutters … there are so many things to consider. There is a technology to installing and repairing each of these types of roofs and roofing materials that must be taught properly so that installation goes smoothly or repairs are done perfectly, and there are no future problems.

WorkSafe BC:

It’s important that a Vancouver roofer be registered with WorkSafeBC. This will show a dedication to protecting their employees as well as the customer.

Consistency:

Does the company do roofing in the summer and then paves driveways in the fall? A good roofing company does the job year round; has long term staff; good estimators; excellent hands-on management; and quality, trained roofers.

An Expert Vancouver Roofer Uses Quality Materials

Fair and Up Front Costs with Good Vancouver Roofer

There is no fault in being price conscious. Look for a reasonable price, but not necessarily the cheapest one. A competent and knowledgeable tradesman will charge what it really costs to do the job right and get the best product for the customer. Being too competitive can end up costing more money in the long run. You may have heard it said that it costs more to redo a job than it does to do it right in the first place. When it comes to good quality roofing, you’d better believe it!
