Having your roof repaired or replaced is one of the top expenses that you may experience when owning a home. Roof replacements can cost anywhere from $6,500 to over $9,000 depending on the size of your roof. Because of the large expense, many people tend to scrimp and save and sometimes go with the cheaper quote just to save some money. However, there are several things you should consider when evaluating quotes, not just the price.Reviews & Company Reputation
Even if you save money by going with the cheapest roofer, it will cost you in the long run if the quality of the work is subpar. Instead of focusing on the immediate savings, the best approach is to think long term and go with the best company all around. It is very easy to know the quality of the roofing company before calling them thanks to reviews on the internet. Real people just like you, give their opinions based on work they had done to their house. Roof Advance has wonderful ratings from their satisfied customers giving us a 5 star review on Facebook and Google and a 4.9 star review on GuildQuality and Home Advisor.Interaction with the Company during the Quoting Process
After reading reviews from previous customers, the next step is to get some quotes from different companies. This will give you a good sense of how working with them will be should you decide to hire them for your roofing job. A good question to ask yourself is, “Are they taking time to answer my questions or are they rushing through just to get a quote?” Hiring roofers that are personable and easy to work with is just as important as the quality of their work. One of our customers, Nicholas Shankland says of our company: “They did a great job, they were very responsive with questions, and explained everything that we asked about. The job was done very quickly and well.”Quality of the Products
You also want to make sure that the products the company is using are top notch. Roof Advance uses quality shingles and Scotchgard Protector, which shields your roof from black streaks caused by algae growing on the roof. Other companies may do quality work, but if their product is lacking you will pay for it later.Financing to Help Ease the Burden of the Cost
Repairing or replacing a roof is an investment, but often customers need a little more time to pay for it. That is never a problem at Roof Advance as we offer financing options such as 0% up to 21 months, home improvement loans with 5.5%-9.99% interest rates, or unsecured loans starting at 4.29% interest based on credit score. Applying for financing is an easy three step process that can be done online.
Another of our clients, Ben Solomon was very pleased with his experience. “First of all, the owner of Roof Advance, Yakov Smolyanov, took care of all the business meetings and discussions personally, explaining all options but not pressuring me to buy anything I didn’t want. He personally went up on the roof and did the estimate. Before I accepted the estimate I had a few questions. Yakov again came in person, I joined him up on the roof and he very patiently and clearly addressed all my concerns. The lead time was only about two weeks, and the actual work was done in one day…”
