We make sure that the roofers, better known as roof installation service providers or roof contractors; know the proper procedure while installing a new roof.
I understand that the workers know their job better, they know the procedure, and they also know how to manage roof installation problems. What people don’t acknowledge is that, what do they have to do step-by-step while their roof is being repaired or replaced – that is the biggest problem at hand!
The communication between the roof installation provider and the consumer should be strong. The customer should know what he needs and his service provide should be very open about his choices.
Being able to make well-informed decision is a luxury that many people don’t have, therefore, make sure that your customer knows all his options before he/she locks the deal.
The first step should always be making sure that you are signed up with all the necessary authorities, you should have a license to sign contracts given to you by the Government officials.
As a customer, it falls on your shoulders to check whether the roofing contractor you’re hiring is certified by the respected authorities of your state.
Inspection of the Roof!
Furthermore, the next step would be to inspect your clients place. Inspection should be thorough and perfect. It is important that all roof installation service providers understand that inspection of the current roof is the most essential step.
You inspection officer or the team has to make sure they mark all the problems; the bad holes, the unwanted plants, the leaking ceilings, the pipeline breakage, and the ever-growing fungus.
Your inspection officer or the team should be experienced enough to go down into detail with the client and figure out the roots of the problem. They should be able to construct a detailed report of the problems your client is facing.
Understanding your client’s needs!
We understand that with experience you have learned what is best for people when it comes to their roofing needs.
However, business psychology suggests that you client is always right. Don’t get frustrated because of his questions and his involvement in the work, if he’s paying for it, he’ll examine each and every little detail.
Hence, it is best that you understand your client’s needs before you get started with the job. You can always pitch in your opinions and always tell your client what could be best for them, list down all options they have.
You should be able to tell them about all the material that will be used for their roof renovation or installation. Tell them about the layers and insulation process in detail, so that they have no doubts and no questions.
You client should be satisfied with your service, satisfied enough to refer you to friends and family.
Tearing out the old roof
The next step that follows is breaking off the old roof. Now, I get it that people have sentimental values with old built monuments and houses, as they remind them of a simpler time or their loved ones; so as a nice gesture, you can always send them a token of their roof as a memory for them to preserve.
Tearing down the roof costs around 1-5 USD per square foot, hence, it is not an expensive job. Workers usually complete it in a week or so.
However, it is best that the workers keep in mind that the peace of the neighbors and the family residing within is not disturbed. The work should be well organized and it should be completed neatly.
Last but not the least – The Roof Installation!
As overwhelming as this must sound, the final brick in the wall – the roof installation process. While starting the process, have well wishes in your heart. I won’t suggest how you work, that you already know, I am telling you how to initiate good work.
Take extra care of everything and make sure that the floor is not damaged during the process. Inspect all the processes yourself and have your head appointed to look after everything.
Make sure that the material that you provided was verified and of good quality. Since we have seen many cases in which people promised something else and delivered something else.
