What Does A Roofing Contractor Do?

By definition a roofing contractor is a person who specializes in roof construction. Roofers repair, replace, and install a roof on top of buildings using a variety of materials from bitumen, metal and shingles. Most roofing contractors repair both commercial and residential buildings.

Roofing contractors are typically hired to repair damaged roof’s after storms, heavy rains, winds or like events. They begin by inspecting the building or home from the ground by walking around it to see any visual damage, like trees or missing gutters. Once the walk-around is complete they will inspect the roof for the extent of the damage.

Looking thoroughly around chimneys, vents, etc…for visual signs of damage is the next step. Once a complete inspection has been done, a roofing contractor will create an estimate for the repairs. Maybe the repairs are minor or maybe it’s a full roof replacement. The estimate will outline what exactly needs to be done and how much it will cost. Many will include a timeframe on how long it will take.

If your insurance will be paying for the repair, make sure the roofing contractor is aware and that they can work along side the insurance company to make sure the claim is properly managed. Some insurance companies require you to get several bids on the repair or replacement before finalizing the claim. Make sure you are aware of the proper procedures that are required.
