Putting a new roof on a home is a major undertaking, not only in terms of the cost, but also in terms of the time involved, the headaches and the inconvenience. In today’s roofing market the homeowner is faced with a myriad of choices, and roofing a home is not something a homeowner wants to make a mistake on or to do more than once. That is why it is important to find a roofer in Ashland who offers a lifetime warranty, including labor.
A lifetime warranty on a home’s roof speaks volumes. It tells the homeowner that the roofer is 100% convinced that the materials about to be used on the home are absolutely the best materials possible, and that the contractor is using only the best-skilled labor that money can buy. There is no other way a contractor can guarantee a roof for life, labor included.
A lifetime contract narrows the field considerably; however, before making a final decision, the homeowner needs to ask a few more questions and consider a few other options. For example, it is essential that the roofing contractor has local roots and who can point with pride to dozens if not hundreds of completed jobs and satisfied customers. After all, a warranty is only as good as the company providing it, so it is essential that the contractor demonstrate that he is in the Ashland area for the long haul. In other words, the homeowner needs to find a Ashland roofer who has something to lose in this area by not performing well.
Choice and quality of materials are two other prime considerations. If the contractor is offering a lifetime warranty then the quality of the materials must be high. That leaves the choice. At the very least, the homeowner needs a wide selection of colors and styles to choose from, since every home is unique as is each homeowner’s style and taste. A roofing contractor who limits a homeowner in color selection or style probably only offers a small selection and therefore must steer the homeowner in the “right” direction with the “right” direction being the one which best serves the contractor’s needs, and not necessarily the homeowner’s.
The final piece of the roofing puzzle is the quality of the people who are actually on-site, performing the actual roofing. The best materials cannot overcome poor installation. Again, this is where the lifetime guarantee plays such an important role. Still, it is important that the homeowner ask about the training of the roofers working for the contractor and their experience.
