A Certified Roofing Contractor: Your Best Choice


A certified roofing contractor can be brought in to avoid personal injury to the homeowner caused by trying to inspect it. A roof inspection should occur annually; constant weathering by sun, heat, rain, snow, hail, wind, and cold can cause roofing material to break down. A certified roofing contractor will know what to look for.

Several factors go into determining the life expectancy of your roof. Type of roofing, quality of material, and exposure to harsh weather elements among the top. A. roof should last from 10 to 100 years with proper maintenance and normal weathering.

Several roofing materials have different lifespans:

  • Built-up Roofing: 12 to 20 years
  • Metal Roofing: 15 to 40 years
  • Wood shake or shingles: 10 to 40 years
  • Asphalt Shingles: 15 to 20 years
  • Slate: Up to 100 years under good conditions

Leaks start as small cracks in roofing material that may not be visible; water may collect in an adjacent area. To detect such damage, a close inspection of the roof may be necessary. A roof and soffit system needs proper ventilation to prevent over-heating and moisture retention. These two factors that can cause a roof to break down prematurely.

Selecting a Qualified and Certified Roofing Contractor

A certified, experienced contractor offers various services. From completely tearing off an old roof and replacing it with a new one, to inspecting and certifying an existing roof. The latter is a process in which the roof has an inspection to function properly for a certain period of time, usually 2 years. Meanwhile, the roofing contractor is certainly responsible for any and all repairs.

In conclusion, ask potential roofing contractors questions such as whether or not they have a license, what liability insurance coverage they carry, and whether it is up to date as well as whether or not they are part of a trade organization.

Several resources are available to find a certified roofing contractor; referrals, local government licensing agencies, and web sites that offer contractors for hire.
