Things to Ask a Roofer Before You Begin
As a customer it is always advised that you seek the assistance of a professional when you are unsure of a certain aspect of your project. After all, as the experts their job is to be able to provide you with the knowledge and information necessary so that you can go straight into the build without any hesitations. Here are some important things that you should also your roofer before the roofing work begins…
- Will the whole roof be removed?
The work that is carried out depends on what you as a consumer would like and the things that have to be done in order to fix a problem. If a full roof removal is necessary then this will be discussed beforehand. If you feel like one may be required then you should speak to your roofer as some black-hat roofers tend to cut corners by laying new material on top of the existing roof.
- How many nails will be used?
In order to ensure that the job is completed to a decent standard the average roofer will use four nails for ever shingle that they use. Of course, this will differ depending on the material that is being used to cover and create your roof. With this said, areas that suffer from particularly strong winds may need to be afforded extra nails.
- How will the worksite be left after each working day?
An experienced roofer knows that they shouldn’t strip more of a roof than what is required per day so that the interior of the home is protected against the wrath of the elements. With this said, if there are areas that are exposed at the end of a working day the roofers cover and secure it with a tarp. In addition to this, roofers should also check the surrounding areas for nails or other potential hazards.
