When it comes to a new roof, the choices for homeowners are wide and varied. Gone is the single choice of a three-tab shingle. Today you can choose from not only the three-tab but also dimensional shingles, luxury and designer shingles, and lifetime shingles. There are synthetic slate shingles, wood shakes, and metal shingles. Mid-Miami Roofing installs them all.

There’s no denying that a new roof for your home is a financial investment. The decision to have one installed should be approached with knowledge and consideration.

What should you look for in a qualified roofing contractor?

  • Does the contractor have current Ohio Worker’s Compensation and General Liability insurance? Ask for the certificates.
  • How long has the contractor been in business? Do your research and make sure you are dealing with a company that has roots in the community and will be around to deal with any problems that could arise. Use the Better Business Bureau as a resource. Ask the contractor for references.
  • Does the estimator seem knowledgeable? Be sure you have all your questions answered and know exactly what materials and work are included in your estimate.
  • How will your old roof be disposed of? Make sure the contractor has a plan in place to protect your landscaping during the roofing process and a plan to clean up all nails and trash at the end of the job.
  • What kind of warranty will your roof have? Be sure you’ve been given enough options for choosing a shingle type that will give you the warranty that best suits your needs as a homeowner.

CAN YOU SPEAK HOUSE?

Your roof has a language all its own. As a homeowner you should familiarize yourself with the names of the different parts of your roof to understand what work is being done and to better know what questions to ask a contractor.

The following terms and definitions are provided for your reference.

  • Decking – the surface to which roofing materials are applied, usually plywood or OSB.
  • Dormer – a framed window unit projecting through the sloping plane of a roof.
  • Drip Edge – an L-shaped strip, usually metal, installed along roof edges to allow water run- off to drip clear of the deck, eaves, and siding.
  • Eave – the horizontal lower edge of a sloped roof.
  • Fascia – a flat board, band, or face located at a cornice’s outer edge.
