The word “best” is a superlative that cannot be quantified. That is why every pizza joint in town can claim “the best pizza.” Harder to earn but more important are measurable qualities like response time, roofing materials and pricing. What does it mean, exactly, to expect the “best” from your residential roofing contractor?
Emergency Roof Repair
One way to measure the professionalism of your residential roofing company is by its response time to emergencies. Not all contractors offer 24-hour service, for example. This means a leak could go unaddressed for long hours after a Chicago-area storm.
Spring and summer storms can bring wind uplift, ripping away shingles and tearing off flashing. In autumn, dead branches can do major blunt impact damage to your Chicagoland home’s roof.
In winter, ice dams that threaten leaks or your roof’s integrity are a concern. How quickly your roofer responds to any seasonal weather emergency can mean the difference between a minor insurance claim and a full-fledged disaster. Adams Roofing Professionals will respond and be on site as soon as storm and weather conditions allow, any time of the day or night.
An easy measure of the quality of your local residential roofing professional is the variety offered for roof replacement. Some roofers are attached to a single product from a single manufacturer. Adams Roofing Professionals can replace your Chicagoland home’s shingle roof with:
- Fiberglass-asphalt shingles
- Wood shakes
Some residences have small portions of low-slope roofing which may stymie other residential roofing contractors. Adams Roofing Professionals are also commercial roofers, so low-slope roofs are no problem for our crews.
Some roofers make homeowners pay a premium for technology that actually increases a contractor’s profit margin. Using a shingle lift or a boom truck cuts down the crew time and speeds up the project, so you should not be paying “extra” for equipment usage.
Some roofers quote a price and then tack on cartage fees for removing the old roof. At Adams Roofing Professionals, we emphasize the “professionals” in our name by treating customers honestly, up front. When you include us in one of your three residential roofing price quotes, be certain you are comparing similar services; we strive to provide an accurate, honest price estimate and stand by it.
