When it comes to roofing repairs and replacements, every decision you make can impact your project’s success. One of these vital decisions is choosing the right contractor. To help you find the best roofer for your project, Premier Systems Roofing shares three important questions that you should not forget to ask during consultations. 

3 Questions to Ask Your Prospective Roofing Contractor

1. “Will You Remove My Old Roof?”

When looking for a roofer, beware of contractors who have a habit of installing a new roof without removing the old one. Always remember that a reputable roofer will remove your old roof before placing the new one. They do this to prevent soft spots due to improper shingle installation. When problems like this are left unaddressed over a long period, you’ll be faced with serious damage and costly repairs.

2. “Will You Install a Drip Edge on My New Roof?”

Made of aluminum, a drip edge is installed at the edges of the roof, under the shingles. It also overhangs the sides of your roof, helping channel water away from your roof deck, soffits and fascia boards. If your drip edge is installed incorrectly, it can lead to serious, expensive water damage. Fortunately, these problems can be avoided by ensuring that you hire an experienced roofer. They will make sure that the drip edge is properly installed and can function well. 

3. “Will You Use Woven Valleys?”

Roofers who use woven valleys instead of metal ones is not the best option for your project. This is because it means that they will just weave your shingles without installing metal underneath for stronger protection. While woven valleys are cheaper and easier to install, they are more susceptible to advanced deterioration. Always opt for a roofer who uses metal valleys during the installation because these materials are more durable, long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing.
