Whether your roof is in need of repair or replacement, it’s important that you find the right Firestone roofing contractors to help complete your project. Of course, you could give it a go yourself by watching step do-it-yourself video clips on YouTube or downloading instructions, but a new system will be much more secure and long-lasting if it is installed by trained and experienced roofing professionals.
Below, we’ve rounded up a few reasons why you should choose a professional Firestone roofing contractor when looking to make changes to your home.
Contractors are trained
Firestone roofing contractors are highly trained for the job, undergoing specialised classes to improve their skillset and roofing installation. What’s more, they have the right tools for the job – if you decide to install or repair a roof on your own, you could spend hundreds of pounds on professional tools and accessories, and that’s before material costs are included.
Contractors are experienced
Aside from the training contractors undergo, Firestone contractors have significant experience in roofing installation, which makes them more prepared for the job. Having the experience of installing hundreds of roofs will mean that they’ll know exactly how to make your new Firestone roof look and perform at its best.
Contractors are insured
Firestone and rubber roof installation can be hard work and dangerous, primarily due to the height of the house where the roof will be installed, and because of heavyweight materials and equipment that is required. Because of this, contractors are fully-insured, covering:
- Public liability insurance: covers the cost of injury or damage to a third person or a member of the public. This can range from £1 million to £10 million, depending on the type and extent of the injury and the insurance company.
- Employers Liability Insurance: covered by the company where your contractor works. This policy protects the contractor in cases of injuries or illness while working.
Contractors will get the best supplies
Firestone roofing contractors know the type of roof that’s perfect for your property, and as such, are familiar with the types and quality of materials needed to work on a job. Most manufacturers and suppliers have direct relationships with roofing contractors, allowing them to purchase the right materials and supplies quickly, and for the very best price.
Contractors offer a warranty
If you work on your own Firestone roof and something goes wrong, you’ll be liable to make changes and repairs further down the line. Working with a contractor and a reputable roofing company, on the other hand, means that you’ll be covered as part of a warranty. Warranties depend on the type of roof you have chosen; some may offer up to 30 years, but the general warranty among contractors is 20 years.
If you’re still wondering whether a roofing contractor is right for your project, then throw away those printed instructions, stop waiting for those video clips to load and pick up your phone and call a professional roofing company today. A roof is a long-term investment for you and your family, so hire the best Firestone roofing contractors to complete your work
