Q&A

Harrison's Roofing Q&A

Are there extended warranties available through the shingle manufacturers?

Yes indeed. However, the company that you are working with must be certified through the manufacturer in order to offer extended warranties. Harrison's Roofing is certified through two of the best manufacturers.

 

1.) Certainteed Shinglemaster Select

 

2.) Owens Corning Preferred

 

 

How do I effectively gather estimates from a reputable contractor?

There are a lot of Roofing, Siding, and Gutter contractors in the market. However, chossing a reputable one can sometimes be a daunting task. Below are 4 techniques that we would recommend:

1.) Word of Mouth (referral)

2.) Better Business Bureau

3.) Angie's List

4.) Keep an eye out for contractors performing work in your neighborhood where you can see the work being performed yourself

 

Upon setting up dates to have several contractors come out to measure & estimate it's always a good idea to be present in order to ask questions and qualify such contractor. Upon receiving the estimates make sure you compare the estimates (apples to apples).

What is the standard workmanship warranty regarding a new roof replacement?

Typically, most companies now offer a 5 year craftsmanship warranty. The standard years ago use to be 2 years. There are companies that offer 10 years or more but some of these companies haven't even been in business for 10 years.

What should I do if my home sustains storm damage from either wind or hail?

The first thing you should do is contact a local, reputable contractor. They will make an appointment with you in order to inspect the complete exterior of your home. Upon their inspection they will look at the following:

*Roofing

*Siding

*Gutters

*Windows

*Doors

*Window Screens

*A/C Condenser fins

Ultimately, the contractor will be able to steer you in the right direction as to if the damage warrants a insurance claim through your insurance carrier. Insurance companies are not always going to protect your investment. Meaning in the event of a loss sometimes insurance companies will deny and or low ball estimates to save the profit. A contractor of your choice can work hand in hand with your insurance carrier and yourself in order to make sure everything that was damaged is approved, and that the monies approved is sufficient in order to get the repairs underway.
