What to Expect from Fort Collins Roof Repair Pros
Each roofing contractor will approach a roofing project differently, but you can expect each provider to follow a series of key steps. Here's a brief overview of what to expect from a Fort Collins roofing company, so you aren't caught off guard by any of the steps.
Inspect Your Roof
A roof repair project is a detailed process that requires in-depth knowledge and roofing skill to guarantee the job is done right. That’s why each roofing project always starts with a roof inspection.
This first part of the process allows your roofer to assess the damage and determine what types of repairs are needed. Your roofer will be inspecting the roof for any signs of wear and tear such as missing shingles, cracked tiles, loose flashing, or other issues. Once the extent of the damage has been determined, your qualified roofer can provide an estimate for the repair.
Discuss Next Steps
After the inspection is complete, your roofer will go over their recommended next steps with you. This may include a discussion of the materials needed for the repairs, as well as any additional services that may be required. They’ll discuss the details of your estimate and your roofer will also give you a rough timeline for completing the project and answer any questions you have about the process.
Acquire Building Permits
Depending on the type of roof repairs that are needed, you may need to obtain a building permit from the city. In Fort Collins, any building repairs larger than 100 square feet require a permit.
Your roofer will need to handle this step of process and ensure that all paperwork is filed correctly. They’ll build in the cost of the permit(s) into the estimate. When all the paperwork is in order, we can truly start the project.
Prepare the Area
To allow your roofers to do their job quickly and efficiently, the work area will need to be prepared. That means your roofers will spend some time removing any debris from the roof and ensuring that all safety precautions are in place for their staff, your family, and your property.
Don’t forget to do your part too and help prepare the worksite. Before the contractors arrive, make sure you move patio furniture or any other obstructions that might get in the way, like kids' toys.
Get to Work on Repairs
Now that everything is ready, it's time to get the repairs underway. The damaged sections will be carefully removed systematically and the debris will be moved to a dumpster, provided by your roofer. Then your roofing contractor will repair any spots of existing damage and replace the materials with new ones, like asphalt shingles. Your roofer will work quickly and efficiently to fully restore your roof, working methodically through the process.
Cleanup and Last Checks
When the repairs are complete, it's time to do the final touches. Your roofer will clean up any debris from the repair process and properly dispose of it. Since roof repair can be a dirty job, it's important to make sure nothing is left behind such as moldy materials or nails hidden in the grass. You can expect your roofers to survey your property with powerful magnets to pick up loose and harmful debris. This step will also include a final inspection to check that no repairs were missed and that the new work looks good.
