Hire A Long-Time Roofer
If you're looking into hiring a roofer, the first question you should ask is how long the company has been in business.
Someone might sound great on paper, but if they're new to the game, they may still be ironing out kinks in their business practices.
You don't want to be the one they test things out on.
Wet Weather and Roof Repairs
Don't try to fix your roof during wet weather; if your roof is slippery, you could fall and sustain an injury.
The best time for do-it-yourself roof work is on warm, sunny days.
When working on your roof, be sure to wear rubber sole shoes.
Even if it is a sunny day outside, there could still be water or ice leftover from previous storms.
If you are not wearing rubber sole shoes, you could end up slipping and falling, which of course, leads to disastrous consequences.
Questions to Ask Potential Roofer
There are some questions you need to ask the roofer before you hire him.
How many nails do they use per shingle?
Most of the time, more than three nails is going to be required for a good job.
Ask them about the methods they use and analyze their answer.
Go with another roofer if you're not happy with their answer.
