Occasionally we hear back from potential customers that they decided to use another contractor because our price was higher. We recognize that we’re not the cheapest Orlando roofing contractor. There are many reasons why our roof replacements cost you a little more up front than many of our competitors. Today we’d like to share why price shouldn’t be your primary consideration when choosing a new roof.
Training and Factory Certification
All of our team members undergo significant training before they are sent to your home to work on your roof. Russ Noyes Roofing Inc is factory trained or certified on every product we sell and install. We’re even MasterElite™ Certified with GAF, a designation given to less than 3% of roofers nationwide.
Our team members are our employees who have been background checked and drug tested. There are two reasons; first we want your roof installed properly so that it lasts as long as it should, and for everyone’s safety. Ask every roofing contractor from whom you get a quote if their roofers are day laborers or employees and how they have been trained, it matters.
Yes many roofing companies in Orlando sell the same quality brand shingles like GAF, TAMKO, and CertainTeed. What about the rest of the materials they will be using for your roofing system? Russ Noyes Roofing Inc uses only Rhino Roofing Underlayment products. This underlayment is more expensive than the generic felt underlayments used by most roofers. This Class A Fire resistant underlayment is 12 times stronger than standard 30# felt. It is also more water resistant and resists mold growth helping your roofing system last longer. We also use quality fasteners to nail down your shingles or tile roofing. Not all Orlando roofers can make that claim. Ask what type of underlayment will be used and do your homework to understand the difference.
Does your roofer have a history in your area? Every year we see many new roofing companies open their doors only to close them after the storm damage repair and replacements are complete. They never intended to stay and honor their warranty. They simply wanted to make money off homeowners who wanted an inexpensive repair or replacement quickly. If you have your new roof installed by an unproven roofer, they may not be around when you need warranty repair work done, worse yet, the manufacturer may not honor the warranty if they weren’t authorized to sell and install the product. Ask your Orlando roofing contractor how long they’ve been in business and check them out online. You can search on the BBB website, the state’s contractor website, Google, and many other outlets to learn more about a company you are considering.
When it’s time for a roof replacement or roof repair, it’s worth spending a few more dollars to ensure you’re getting quality products installed properly. Choosing solely on price may end up costing you more in the long run. No matter which Orlando roofing contractor you choose for your roofing needs, make sure they have a valid state license and proper insurance.
