      Quality Roofing carries general liability insurance & workers’ compensation insurance. These two types of insurance provide comprehensive coverage for operations and employees and protect you from liability. Our insurance policy information is included with the paperwork for every roofing contract. We are also happy to provide proof of insurance upon request.

    • Do I need to be home for the roof repair estimate?
      Yes. One of the most important parts of getting a roof estimate is reviewing it with your contractor. We will sit with you and go over each line item in your proposal. This is also the time to ask specific questions to understand what the proposal fully entails.
    • Do you have to get a permit for my roof repair job?
      If you are doing any roof work that meets a minimum square footage requirement, which varies by municipality, you will need a building permit. When you hire Quality Roofing, we will apply for the building permit if it is required.
    • Which roofing product makes the most sense for my home?
      This depends on what features and benefits are most important to you as a homeowner.

      Some considerations you may want to take into account are: 

      • How long do you plan to stay in your current home?
      • What is the wind exposure category of your home?
      • What is your aesthetic preference?

      Asphalt shingles are the most commonly used roofing product in Florida and Alabama and are also the most economical option. However, they are more susceptible to damage during wind or hail events than other roof systems, and you may see increased costs on homeowners’ insurance after the roof has aged 10-15 years, or possibly cancellation. Ordinary life expectancy, assuming no storm damage, is generally 15-25 years.

      Metal roofs have continued to gain popularity throughout Florida and Alabama. Metal roofs have a larger initial investment, which can be significantly higher than shingles; however, the investment will not be made as often. Metal roofs are less vulnerable to wind damage and are not typically subject to increases in insurance premiums after a certain age. Ordinary life expectancy, assuming no storm damage, is generally 20-40 years.

      There are many other roofing options available, including concrete tile roofing, composite roofing, wood shakes, and more. Each of these comes with its own set of benefits and drawbacks.

    • How can I recognize when my roof needs repair or replacement?
      While some roof damage is cosmetic and only requires a roof repair, other types of damage may warrant a full roof replacement. Whether your roof is old or, a storm has damaged it, the best way to know which type of roof work you need is to schedule a roof inspection.
    • What is the best thing I can do to ensure my roof lasts as long as possible?
      Generally, the keys to roof longevity are keeping the gutters clean, fixing roof issues as they occur, keeping the roof well ventilated, and scheduling regular roof inspections.
    • When or how frequently should I get a roof inspection?
      How often your home needs a roof inspection depends on various factors, including roofing materials, age of the roof, current condition, and the climate. While roofing contractors in Florida and Alabama often recommend a professional roof inspection at least every two years, something unexpected, such as a severe weather event, may warrant an assessment of the condition of your roof.

    • How can I determine my annual roofing cost?
      When considering your roofing options, the following formula may help Total Cost (Materials and Labor) ÷ Life Expectancy of Roof System (in Years) = Annual Roofing Cost.
