When interviewing a potential roofing contractor, you should always ask them “what’s the best product for my roof?” This is a key question because it can tell you how the contractor thinks and whether they’ll be the right choice for your roofing goals and budget.
So, just what is the best product for your roof? Let us break down how we will determine the answer to that question by asking a few queries of our own.
The Best Product for Your Roof Depends… On You!
No roofing contractor worth your time and money will try to hock products at you or always recommend one roofing solution as the go-to choice no matter your unique needs. Instead, a good roofing contractor will start by asking you questions.
Why? Because the best product for your roof heavily depends on factors like:
- Your budget
- Your roofing needs and current with quality
- Your aesthetic preferences if you have any
- And more
Therefore, you shouldn’t ask “what’s the best product for your roof”. Instead, allow the roofing contractor to ask you several insightful questions and gather key information. When you make an appointment with The Roofing Center, we’ll typically ask you the following three questions and potentially more depending on the information you provide.
How Long Do You Plan on Staying in Your Current Home?
Firstly, you’ll have to consider how long you wish to stay in your current home. That affects how long any new roofing product needs to last.
For example, if you’re planning on leaving in a few years, you may not be interested in investing in higher quality and usually more expensive roofing solutions. In contrast, if you plan to live in your current home for many years or even decades, a more expensive but longer-lasting roofing product, like stone-coated metal roofing, maybe right up your alley.
What Are Your Expectations for Your Roof?
Next, you need to determine your expectations for your roof product. Lots of people don’t think about their roofs very often (at least until there is a problem with them!).
For instance, do you want a roof that effortlessly blends into the natural environment of your surroundings? Or do you want a roof that can defend your home capably against hail and other storm hazards? Any of these answers can work, but answering this question can help us determine the best product for your exact needs (without accidentally selling you a product that you don’t truly require).
What Issues Does Your Current Roof Have?
Lastly, we may ask you if you have any issues with your current roof. By determining this, we can then identify if a new roofing solution will adequately eliminate your current problems or if they will simply exacerbate any issues that need solving.
Plus, if you have issues with a previous roofing product, that can help us eliminate similar roofing products that may simply lead to more disappointment.
Each of these questions and your answers to them will determine:
- The best roofing product for your home
- Whether we have the best roofing product available – if another specialist will be a better choice, we will happily refer you to them
- What will work best depending on your budget limitations
