From Shingles to Rubber

How many different kinds of roofs can you spot on the houses on your street? A few decades ago, you may have only seen shingle roofs, perhaps with the occasional slate roof mixed in. But these days, there are more kinds of roofing on the market. Metal roofs are becoming common because they can be made from recycled materials. Tile is a popular choice because it lasts a lot longer than other roofing materials. And then there are some roofers who install rubber roofs because they're smooth and easy to install.

Why You Should Hire A Roofing Contractor Who Is Manufacturer Certified

When you're looking for a roofing contractor to assist with installing a roof on your home, you should inquire about whether or not they are manufacturer certified. Basically, this means that the roofer has gone through training and certification processes with one or more manufacturers that make and sell roofing materials. You could be curious about why this is something you should ask about, but there are actually numerous reasons why it's ideal to hire a roofing contractor who is manufacturer certified.

They Can Provide Great Advice About Roofing Materials

A roofing contractor who is manufacturer certified has typically spent a lot of time going through training to learn about the different types of roofing materials that the manufacturer sells. They also typically only work with these roofing materials. Because of these things, they typically know quite a bit about the different roofing materials that homeowners can purchase for their homes. Since you might want advice about which roofing materials will be best for your home, you might like being able to talk to someone who is very knowledgeable about this.

They Should Be Able to Properly Install Your Roof

Of course, how good your roof looks and how long it lasts will depend on how it is installed. A roofing contractor who is manufacturer certified won't just know about the basics of roof installation, but they should know about the best way to install the manufacturer's particular roofing materials. By hiring someone like this to install your roof, you should not have to worry about your roof not looking good when the job is finished. You also should not have to worry about your roof not holding up like it's supposed to.

They Can Usually Help With Warranties

If you're installing a new roof on your home, you might be looking forward to having a warranty on that roof. Some manufacturers require homeowners to have their new roofs installed by manufacturer certified roofing contractors in order to offer and honor this warranty, however. Plus, you will probably want to hire someone who is familiar with the warranty coverage offered by your chosen roofing material manufacturer, and you might be hoping to find a roofing professional who can help with warranty claims when needed, too. Fortunately, a manufacturer certified roofing professional should be fully knowledgeable about these matters and should be able to assist with anything warranty-related in regard to your brand new roof.
