About Roof Replacement

Given the large expense of a roof replacement, consider these tips that will help provide you with a roof that lasts a lifetime.

Do Your Homework

Be cautious about the roofing company you select. Disreputable roofers often employ low-wage workers so that they can undercut the prices of reputable roofing companies. Unfortunately, this may leave you with a roof you are not happy with. Talk to friends and neighbors to see if they have a licensed roofing contractor they would recommend. Dickson Roofing exceeds Florida Building Code minimums on all roofs. We are also one of a few companies in Florida with a dedicated safety department to ensure that every part of your job is done safely.

Choose the Best Materials

Everyone wants to save money, but price isn’t everything. Research different roofing materials such as tile, slate, metal and wood shake, to determine which one will give you the best value and return on investment. If you are interested in premium materials for your roof, entrust your project to roofing contractors like Dickson Roofing who have the specialized knowledge, training and equipment to do the job properly.

Get a Written Estimate

Be sure you are provided with a written estimate. It should include the type of roof covering, the color and the manufacturer’s name; the estimated cost of all materials, including the roof covering, underlayment, flashing, drip edges, gutters and new ventilation if required; the estimated cost of removing your old roof; the estimated cost of hauling away debris; the estimated timeline from start to finish; and payment due dates and accepted payment methods.

Read the Fine Print

Be certain you receive a written contract that itemizes all of the details agreed to, including products and prices. Does your contractor offer a standard warranty? What does it include: product, labor, parts? You should be given a warranty on both the materials and the workmanship, as well as a detailed description of what is included, what is not, and what will void the warranty. Dickson Roofing uses the highest quality materials from top manufacturers with the best warranty protections.
