Building roof construction site teamwork silhouetteWe’ve already discussed picking affordable, quality roofing materials, emphasizing lifetime cost and reliability of construction. Now we will take a look at picking the right people for the job. Quality roofers are hard to come by- but if you know what to look for, picking the right roofers for the job is easier than you think. Residential roofing is a common specialty in Las Vegas, with many homes using Spanish tiles. If this is your type of roof, then make sure you choose a local roofing company that specializes in them.

Do your research, and consider your roofing professional for more than simply cost: if you’re following our Roofing 101 steps, then you’ve already paid for quality materials. Putting a roof over your head is usually a lengthy process, especially if the roof is part of a whole construction project. Even a basic roof repair or replacement can take a fair amount of time, and the steps involved make it worth paying special attention to who you hire.

Hiring your Roofers:

1. Licensed and Bonded: Is the roofing service you’re considering licensed, bonded, and insured? Professional roofers are required to have proper credentials in order to ply their trade, and checking to make sure your roofing company is legitimate is a big first step towards guaranteeing quality.

2. Referrals: Unless it’s a brand-new roofing company, the roofers you hire are bound to have referrals- customer reviews, assessments of their skill, testimonials, etc. These referrals will show you past customers’ experiences with the company, whether they get the promised results or if they go over-budget.

3. Meet face-to-face: While you can correspond with a business via email and phone, and sometimes it will work out fine, it is always better to meet your roofers face-to-face. You’d be surprised at how meeting a person and looking them in the eye can help you to judge their character and determine whether they will be reliable in business.

4. Permits: Your roofing company should provide the permits required for the job at hand. If your roofer insists on making you, the customer, then there may be something fishy about their operation.

5. You get what you pay for: Cheap roofers build cheap roofs. While you shouldn’t have to break the bank to get a quality roof over your head, if you’re paying considerably lower than you expect for a roofing project, you’re likely to get shoddy workmanship and a poor final product.

Building a cost-effective, quality roof for your business or home is a daunting proposition. You not only have to consider the cost of materials and labor, but other factors as well. These are essential considerations your roofing contractor must take into account when planning out a roofing project. Let’s take a look at a breakdown:

  • Price of materials
  • Hiring your Roofers
  • Quality of the product being installed
  • Prefabrication
  • Installation disruptions
  • Ease of maintenance
  • Environmental impact
  • Lifetime cost of ownership

Price of Materials: 

When it comes to roofing, cost is key- and the first thing you will be paying for is the materials to repair your roof (or build you a new one). Your average Las Vegas roof not only requires materials that can handle extreme temperatures and conditions, but also appropriate underlayments, etc. All of this can add up to an expensive sum, but at the same time you don’t want to pay too little for cheap product that won’t last.

You want your roof to be built to last- and still affordable enough that it doesn’t break the bank. Most homeowners will want to settle somewhere between initial installation cost and total cost of ownership over the roof’s lifetime- with a minimum of expenses for maintenance or repairs. At Prestige Roofing, located in North Las Vegas and serving all of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Area, we strive to bring  a balance of quality, care, and cost to our roofing projects. From celebrity mansions to humble businesses and quaint residences, our trained and certified roofers can suit your needs and stay under budget!

A dome roof is difficult for many roofing projectsOne of our recent customers had kind words to say about Prestige Roofing Las Vegas, “Prestige Roofing came to my rescue and performed beyond expectations.  I have a most difficult house to roof, a dome home, and after some 30 years needed a new roof.  The original roofing contractor hired turned the project into a nightmare and was relieved leaving less than satisfactory results and my house still needing a new roof.  I am sure most contractors when presented with a mess from another would just as soon shy away from the project; Prestige did just the opposite.  Their creativity, vision, leadership and involvement, workmanship, and professionalism quickly turned my yearlong nightmare into a showpiece and the results are just extraordinary when I compare the look of my house with others on the internet.  I have never been one to lavish praise, but Prestige deserves kudos from beginning to end and top to bottom.  They are without a doubt a company that provides exactly what their name signifies, PRESTIGE.”
