Important Questions to Ask Your Roofer

Your roof's quality and service life are largely dependent on the caliber of its installation. A poorly installed roof can mean expensive repairs and early failure in the future, which means more money spent.

Important Questions to Ask Your Roofer | West Side Roofing

Before hiring a roofer, there are certain questions you should ask your candidates. West Side Roofing, one of the top roofing companies, suggests asking your potential contractors the following questions:

Do You Have a Roofing License?

A business license and a roofing license are two different documents. The first one is for identification and tax purposes. It doesn't mean that the person or company is qualified to work as a roofer. So, it's important to ask your potential contractor if they have a roofing license. The requirements for this vary by state so be sure to verify whether a license is needed in your area. If it is, check the local licensing offices to ensure that your roofer's license doesn't have any outstanding violations.

Do You Have Insurance?

All responsible roofing contractors should have updated workers' compensation and liability insurance. These two protect you and your investment in case of an accident. Workers' compensation is responsible for accidents involving injuries among company employees while the liability covers the damage caused by roofers during construction. Without these two, you would be responsible for all the costs associated with those problems.

Do You Have References?

To determine whether a contractor is right for your project or not, ask them for references or previous roofing work that you can see. Determine for yourself whether the quality of work is up to your standards, and choose the one that best satisfies your needs. You can also ask their clients if they were happy with the contractor.

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof One of the first things we look at when we go to repair or replace any roof is to take a look at the attic. The attic is the foundation of the roof, and if it has any issues, the longevity of your roof is at stake. The Importance of Proper Attic Ventilation Attic ventilation is a crucial component of any roofing job. Without adequate ventilation, your roof is at risk for mold, and no one wants mold in their house. The first step when we meet with the homeowner is to go up in their attic space and determine whether the situation is agreeable or if it needs some work. While in the attic, we also look at the condition of the wood. If the wood itself is in poor condition, we may have to make some repairs there as well. For example, a rotting attic ceiling is not a good foundation for any roof, new or old. It can be hard for some homeowners to hearthat they have mold in their attic, but it is important to know if it is there because it is unhealthy

Do You Have aLeaking Chimney orAnother Chimney Issue? Is a Leaking Chimney a Roofing Issue? One of the most frequent calls that we get here at West Side Roofing is about chimneys. It is not uncommon that over time a chimney will begin to leak, especially brick chimneys. Because a chimney is part of the roof, people will assume that we are equipped to fix that leak. Though this leakage is usually attributed to a masonry issue, we can still help identify and inform you about why this happens. We speak the masonry language, but we are not equipped to make those repairs. What is Chimney Flashing? However, sometimes there is a chimney issue that we can help you with, and that is with the flashing along the bottom of the chimney where it meets the roof. In the first example in the video, you can see that there were some pretty large cracks in the actual brick of the chimney which we recommended the owner have a mason come out and fix that. But their flashing was also coming apart as
