4 Best Dallas Roof Repair Tips

Lots of folks are dealing with roof damage after last week's big hail storm. Before you talk to ANY roofing company about repairing your roof, potential damage or your insurance possibilities, please take this advice:

1. If someone rings your doorbell regarding your roof or hail damage, ask to see their city permit. Don't listen to their spiel, let them inspect or do anything else before you see their city permit. No permit? Close the door. Scammers frequently work door to door and do not have a permit.

2. Call your insurance company. They deal with reputable roofers who don't have to ring doorbells for business. Do not hire anyone or sign anything without speaking first with your insurance company.

3. Get references from friends, family, neighbors, or Realtors. Guys looking to make a quick buck will promise you anything. When they don't deliver, you end up stuck. Either they'll take your money and not complete the work or you'll find out they didn't do it right months later when the water is pouring in your house.

4. Research the roofing company before you hire them. Legitimate roofers are online. Google their name and find out about them. If you can't find any reference to them online, don't hire them. Beware of the guy who tells you he operates on a shoestring budget so he can pass the savings on to you. It often means he is hiring unqualified, uninsured labor and using substandard material.  [where: 75230]

An effective roofing tip is to perform minor roof repairs while waiting for a contractor to come and fix the roof. This will help prevent further leaking and damage. You can cover the leaks with plastic roof cement, which can help keep your roof free from leaks, at least until the professionals come and fully repair your roof.

You should only attempt this if you are comfortable with the height and you feel that the maintenance or repair work can be done safely. Otherwise, you should contact a roofing contractor.

I agree that referred and well-researched roofing companies are more advisable to hire because you’ll know the reviews and feedback of its customers regarding the quality of their services. It’s better to be cautious and be one step ahead of possible scammers.

Roof repairs, replacement, or anything about roofing, is a major undertaking that needs a plan. You can repair your roof on your own, but still, it is best to hire and let professional roofers fix your roof. Ask for referrals and do your research so you can be assured that you’ll only get quality service.

I think it is crucial to see someone's permit before they try anything on your roof. You don't want someone who isn't certified doing work. Especially if something happens where you don't like an accident.

References are a must, otherwise you have no idea who you've just trusted with your home and money. My cousin is looking for someone to come do some commercial roofing at her worksite. She has minor water damage from a past storm, but it was only an empty storage room. Maybe someone like this: http://www.allweatherwaterproofing.com/services/

I agree: it's vital to research before you hire. It seems tedious in the moment, but you'll thank yourself when everything goes smoothly and according to schedule. There's nothing worse than settling for the lowest bidder only to end up having the price raised in the end due to missed deadlines and sloppy workmanship. It's worth it to do your homework on this one! Thanks for sharing your tips with us. http://www.save-on-roofing.ca

Like you say, don't be afraid to ask to see their city permit. Anyone that wants to work on your roof needs to have one. If they don't most likely they are trying to scam you. Ask all the right questions, and you will for sure end up with the best looking roof in the neighborhood. http://prohomemi.com/roofing.aspx
