Perhaps you’ve been noticing your roof slowly declining with small leaks and patches springing up over the past few months. Others of you may have experienced some major damage recently that repairs simply can’t handle. Whatever the reason, maybe you’ve decided that it isn’t just time for a roof replacement—it’s time for a roofing upgrade.
For those of you who haven’t heard, we at Sparks Roofing are all about metal roofing. Metal roofs don’t need to be replaced for a lifetime, and needing repairs is very rare. These roofs also offer unparalleled protection against all the elements, including fire, wind, water, and snow. With the reflective qualities of metal, the roof keeps UV rays and heat out of your home, meaning that your bills are that much lower. And, for those of you who are hoping to take steps to be more environmentally-friendly at home, metal roofing is recyclable even when it is no longer in use. This is not the case for shingle roofs.
Finding a Metal Roofing Contractor
When it comes to finding a reputable metal roofing contractor for your Nashville home, where do you begin? Metal roofs are just now starting to become popular, so you may not be able to rely solely on word-of-mouth to find the right team for your roofing build. If you don’t have anyone presenting solid suggestions to you, feel free to look online! There are a few websites around that will tell you what companies are best to work with. HomeAdvisor is a great contractor site, and the Better Business Bureau will always let you know which companies you can trust. If you are looking to go even more in-depth with your research for a contractor, consider reaching out to architects or builders who have designed homes with metal roofing. They may have go-to companies that they use for installation.
Talk with Your Contractor Options
While it’s great to find a contractor and give them a chance, it is essential that you do your research ahead of time. We recommend making appointments with a few different roofing companies to see what your options are and ask them any important questions. For example, find out what your role is in this installation process. See how long the installation will take, as well as what sorts of fees are accounted for in the initial price quote. The last thing you want to happen is for you to have a brand new metal roof with thousands of extra dollars tacked onto the bill that you didn’t agree to pay. The right contractors will respect your budget and make sure not to go over what you have set aside for your project.
When you meet with your potential metal roofing contractor, ask them for references! The right company will have the experience and the satisfied customers to prove that they are as good as they claim to be. They should provide a list of references who can explain to you how happy they are with the work they received, and who will also be open to explaining any issues that arose during the installation. If there were any problems, this may not be a dealbreaker—instead, ask how the contractor offered to fix the problem. This will show you that the company is willing to put in the extra effort should they make a mistake.
