RESIDENTIAL ROOFER IN ST. LOUIS
Trust Solomon Contracting to put a roof over your head that will last for years to come
The sign of a good roof is that you don’t have to think about it. It’s just hanging out above you, taking the weather’s punches, performing its solemn duty as your roof.
You don’t have to think about it...until you do.
The weather was just too strong for it or it’s an old roof that can’t keep up anymore. Either way, you need to get it repaired or replaced – stat! You need to get the holes closed before you have to worry about water damage too.
But fixing your roof isn’t something you can just do yourself. It’s not IKEA furniture.
Residential roofing requires exceptional skill, professionalism, and a committment to quality. That’s why all of our residential repairs and replacements are covered by some of the best workmanship warranties in the industry.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT RESIDENTIAL ROOFER
A new roof is one of the most significant investments you can make for your home. A high-quality roof can last for many years, but the type of material and installation quality will play a big role in your roof’s longevity, which is why it’s extremely important for you to choose a reliable contractor.
There are many factors to consider other than just how much the job costs to make sure that you get the highest quality work for the best price. If you’re only comparing their services based on how much it costs, then you’re going to end up with a shoddy roof.
- Are they local?
Choosing a local residential roofer with a good reputation in the community is your best bet at getting your roof repaired or replaced by a crew you can trust. A warranty is only as good as the reputation and longevity of the roofing company. You don’t want to be in the situation where something breaks and you call the contractor only to find that they’ve skipped town or gone bankrupt.
With over 30 years in business, our reputation for excellence has established us as a company our clients can trust and refer to friends and family.
- You get what you pay for
Never choose a contractor based on just price. A cheap bid will lead to a cheaply made roof and you’ll ultimately end up spending more money to fix problems – problems that would have been covered under a workmanship warranty from a reputable roofing company.
There have been many times customers have called us up to fix the work of a cheaper residential roofer who didn’t do the job right the first time. We’re happy to fix it, but we know the customers would have been happier if they’d called us in the first place.
- Communication is key
Did they return your calls and follow through on any requests or questions you had for them? If not, then they likely won’t communicate during the project when you really need them to do so. The contracting team is going to be around and on your home during the project. You need to find a contractor you can trust to be that close to your home.
- Do they have insurance?
Make sure that the contractor has worker’s compensation and liability insurance. You can ask to see the certificates and call the insurance carrier to confirm their validity.
FREE ESTIMATE AND CONSULTATION
Every roofing project is different, so no estimate will be the same. From the size of the roof to the extent of the damage, there are just too many variables for us to offer a fixed price that applies to all projects.
But after 30 years in business, we know the main factors that can affect the cost of a roof replacement or restoration.
- The “pitch” or steepness of your roof
Most residential homes don’t have flat roofs, and the pitch of it varies from home to home.
- Water damage
Best case scenario is that you don’t have any water damage on your roof. But if there is – and the extent of it – can affect how much work needs to be done to your roof. Water can damage the underlying structure, making the job a little more complicated.
- Type of roofing material
Just like how the material of your clothes affects the price, the roofing material you need us to replace or repair affects the roofing estimate. There are economical choices that might not last as long, and there are roofing materials that will cost you more upfront, but will last longer.
- The size of your roof
This is an obvious one, but one worth mentioning. If you have a large roof, the job might take long and it’ll take more material. The opposite if you have a smaller roof. We don’t know until we get a good look at it during our inspection.
WHY SHOULD I GET AN ESTIMATE BEFORE HIRING A ROOFING CONTRACTOR?
You don’t want to be surprised and neither do we.
Since there are many variables when it comes to pricing a roofing project, you want to find a contracting company with the most reasonable estimate for the highest quality of work.
That way, you can compare estimates and choose the contractor who gives you the best deal and the highest quality.
There are three big reasons why getting an estimate is a good policy to follow:
It’s a chance to meet and screen the residential roofing contractor before agreeing to any services.
It gives the roofing company a chance to send a licensed estimator to evaluate your roof so they have a better idea of what type of roof maintenance will work best for your home. Then they can give you a recommendation that will work best for you.
It allows them a chance to provide you with a fair and accurate quote that you can compare to other company’s quotes and quality of service.
WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU AND YOUR HOME
Solomon Contracting is more than just a residential roofer, which is why we offer more services than just replacing shingles:
- Roof inspections
If you’re selling your home, you need to know exactly what’s happening up top. We’re happy to provide you with an honest assessment of your roof’s condition. If we think it needs repairs or complete replacement, we’ll offer you a free estimate. If the roof is still looking and functioning as it should, we’ll provide that opinion in writing as needed.
- New roof installation
It’s easy to forget about your roof until it’s past time to replace it.
You want a roof that you can forget about. It keeps out the elements and makes your house look good at the same time. The only way to do that is to find a high quality contractor with the technical expertise to make your new roof installation perfect the first time they try it.
- Residential roof repair
After a big storm, it’s important to check your roof for damage. Are there any leaks in the attic? Are there any drafts that weren’t there before? You need to be proactive if you notice any damage to your roof, because the damage could quickly get worse and start affecting other aspects of your home.
Ignoring a leaky roof could lead to:
· High utility bills
· Health concerns
· Fire hazards
· Building deterioration
· Complete roof replacement instead of a simple repair
- Emergency roof repair
When a big storm damages your roof, you need to repair it as soon as possible. But you can’t live with a giant hole in your roof until a full repair crew can get out to fix it. Your homeowners policy also probably requires you to take reasonable steps to minimize any further damage to your property.
Call our emergency roof repair number and we’ll come out and expertly tarp it over. That way, you minimize the damage and make your home safe until you can schedule a complete repair.
