Why You Should Hire an Experienced Roofing Contractor
As the old saying goes, there is no substitute for experience. That’s why you should hire an experienced roofing contractor. One that has been working in the roofing industry for years.
Experience is the best teacher. In today’s educational environment, children aren’t taught the basics of construction. The days of “shop class” are long gone. Young people interested in careers where they use their hands to build, rather than type on a keyboard, begin with hands-on experience as helpers or apprentices for contractors. They learn how to measure, how to cut, how to fasten. They carry heavy loads, they haul trash after the job is done. While working as the helper they are learning the tricks of the trade, especially the little things that make a project successful.
As they advance in their careers they acquire important workmanship skills. To the average person, roofing a house may look rather simple, albeit physically demanding. Slap some shingles on the roof with some nails and make it look straight, right? Wrong. There’s a definite “science” to roofing. A distinct lingo to learn, techniques to master, craftsmanship skills to grow and develop over the years.
An experienced roofing contractor needs to possess certain attributes in order to run a successful business in the roofing industry.
Obviously roofing is a physically demanding job so one needs to be in relatively good shape with a strong sense of balance. A bundle of shingles can weigh 100 pounds!
Attention to details is extremely important when roofing a house. The smallest mistake can create the biggest roof leak.
An experienced roofer will be dependable and have integrity. It’s important to have respect for and protect the homeowner’s property. Being on time and within budget of the agreed upon price is crucial.
I recently Googled the local roofers in my area. Their Google Business listings typically show how many years they have been in business.
Not to toot our own horn, but we run circles around the local competitors regarding years of experience and longevity in our local business community. On average, most roofers in the Walton and Gwinnett county areas seem to have been in business for less than ten years.
We opened Bryant Roofing and Repairs in 1989, with several years experience prior to that.
Alot of blood, sweat and tears has gone into our business. Well maybe not so many tears, but alot of sweat in the Georgia summer heat! It’s probably safe to say we have either roofed or repaired thousands of homes and commercial buildings across NE Ga cities including Monroe, Loganville, Snellville, Lilburn, Lawrenceville and Buford.
