Your home is your pride and joy, but sometimes it needs a little tender loving care and a replacement roof is not uncommon, especially in older properties. As roofing specialists, Horizonline Roofing is the premier choice for roofing works in Adelaide, and we have put together a list of common mistakes homeowners make when deciding on a new roof structure for their home or investment property. Save yourself a headache and cost and call GT Roofing today for a quote on any roofing works large or small.
Roofing can be one extremely dangerous job; of all the jobs around the home a savvy DIYer can do, roofing is not on the list.
Roofing materials are readily available through home improvement stores and manufacturers themselves, unfortunately, many people take that to mean you can replace or repair your roof yourself. This is also how a lot of injuries occur. You will also need to be careful as warranties generally only cover work completed by licenced contractors. It’s best to get a team like ours to do the work for you.
You also need to bear in mind structural, ventilation and installation requirements and safety standards that must be met. Licenced contractors like GT Roofing are skilled in these areas and can have your new roof in place in no time. Not only are we qualified and licenced but insured as well.
When it comes to construction of any kind, the adage, ‘you get what you pay for’ is quite true. Obtaining several roofing quotes and having one well below the price of the other quotations, should raise a red flag for you. It’s always a good idea to analyse the items listed and ensure you’re happy with the items included. Regrettably, a significantly lower quote may indicate corner cutting or substandard materials.
If a company provides quality service, theory suggests it should not be able to commence work immediately. It is, however, possible during less busy times of the year or if an existing project was cancelled. It’s good to be wary of anyone who can start straight away. It can be difficult to differentiate between a reputable and established roofing company, like GT Roofing Adelaide and reasonably new businesses. Find out how long the business has been operating and how many projects they have completed. Be sure to ask about their licences, warranties, insurance and manufacturer certification for the products they are proposing to use.
Most property owners forget to ask about the standard and extra warranties that may come with a new roof. You will generally ask about the warranty on a new tv, why not with a new roof? The contractor you choose should offer you a material and workmanship guarantee in writing.
GT Roofing Adelaide not only guarantees their workmanship but have over 20 years’ experience in the Adelaide area. We are also fully licenced; insured and only use the products and materials we are certified to use.
Whilst a handyman is a great idea for miscellaneous jobs around the house, just like a DIYer, they are not licenced or insured to complete roofing repairs.
