For Aurora, Co residents, a quality roof starts with a quality roof inspection. A roof inspection may be the single most important way to protect your roof and your home against the damage severe weather can render on a roof. And yet, the roofing specialists at ASAP ROOFING, a national roofing company with the corporate offices in Aurora, Co., are constantly helping customers who really do not know what a quality roof inspection entails.
While anyone can pull out a ladder, climb on top of a house and look at a roof, there are actually several factors that go into a quality roof inspection. ASAP ROOFING provides the following list as a way to help customers better understand what to look for when having their roof inspected.
- Documentation. A quality roof inspection includes photos and written damage reports that should be provided not just to your insurance company, but also to you as the homeowner. This documentation is your proof that your roof is damaged and will serve as a negotiation tool, should your insurance company attempt to deny your claim. This is also your proof of what will be fixed on your roof, and should your roof not perform as the roofing company promises, you can use this documentation to negotiate with the roofing company to have your roof repaired as promised. Often roofing companies will not provide these reports to the homeowner for exactly this reason.
- A written estimate. A quality roof inspection should always include an estimate of the cost of repairs in writing. While many roofing companies make promises to customers that there will be no cost, you, as the homeowner have a right to know exactly what is being spent on your roof, regardless of whether or not your insurance company will be covering the repairs. Again, often roofing companies will avoid giving this information to homeowners as a way to hide their actual profit margin — which can quite often be very large — as well as an accounting of what is actually repaired on your roof, and what is not.
- An accurate timeline. Again, roofing companies can be notorious for promising and failing to deliver, and one of the areas where this happens frequently is with the timeline in which your roof is promised to be repaired. A quality roof inspection, therefore, includes a written timeline in which your roof will be repaired. This documentation, like the documentation of damage to your roof is your ammunition should the roofing company fail to deliver on their promises.
At ASAP ROOFING, customer satisfaction is of utmost importance, and this is evidenced by the number of testimonials and positive reviews this company enjoys. One of the ways that ASAP ROOFING manages this extremely high customer approval rating is through their quality roofing inspections. Every roof inspection performed by the specialists at ASAP ROOFING includes documentation of damage to your home (provided through either photos, or written list, or both), a written estimate of the cost to repair your roof, and a written timeline for when your roof will be repaired.
