Will you call before you start my roof project?
Always. We make every effort to keep you informed of our schedule; we never show up without advance notice. Keep in mind that many things may affect our schedule. Sometimes it is necessary to reschedule, or postpone, due to inclement weather, material acquisition, or even delays on other projects. Although completing your project in a timely manner is one of our highest priorities, occasionally, to ensure your project mets our high standard of excellence, the completion date may change.
Will there be any extra charges during my roofing project?
Possibly. Because your roof deck is not fully exposed until we tear off the old roof, we cannot finalize the cost estimate to repair or replace your roof until we asses the deck's condition. Florida state and local building codes require us, as your licensed contractor, to replace all rotted or deteriorated wood before installing a new roof product. So, there may be additional costs to replace rotted wood decking. If this is the case, your project manager will contact you. Charges for these repairs are outlined in your contract.
Will you damage the grass, shrubs or driveway while re-roofing my home?
The Dubo Roofing installation crew will take every precaution to protect your property. Like many construction projects, our crews use heavy equipment while installing your roof. And, tearing off an old roof creates a lot of trash. Before the roofing team begins the tear-off, they will cover your landscape with tarps and designate one area for staging. As an extra precaution, at the end of each day, a crew member will drag a magnetic nail bar over your lawn to gather fallen nails. We use our own dump trailers, rather than roll off containers, because they are less likely to damage your driveway.
Does someone need to be home while your workmen are re-roofing my house?
No. However, our roofing crews must have access to electricity. Otherwise, we are fully equipped to complete your project without your being there. Remember, roofing is noisy, dirty work; you may not want to be there.
When is payment due?
Refer to your contract for payment terms. Typically, there is a 25% down payment. Upon completion, we request payment of the contract balance, plus any change orders, such as rotten wood replacement. Large jobs may require additional draws.
How many roofers will be involved in my roofing project?
Depending on how complicated your job is, our roofing
crew size varies from one to ten workers.
My roof is being torn off and replaced. Will I experience any leaks during the re-roofing process?
We are very careful when performing complete roof replacements. It is impossible, however, to absolutely guarantee that no leaks will occur during roof construction. (If a company says they can, they have not done many roof projects). Because Florida weather is so unpredictable, we carefully track weather conditions through several weather reporting agencies. As most Floridians know, there are no weather guarantees and sometimes leaks cannot be avoided. An occasional, minor leak is typically very small and quickly repaired by our roof technicians. We will never tear off your roof and leave it unprotected. Our highly trained roof technicians will install new felt underlayment, a waterproof protection barrier, before leaving for the day.
Should I be concerned about the contents of my house during re-roofing?
Roofing is hard work. Vibrations that occur during a roof construction project cannot be avoided. If you are worried about wall hangings or other belongings, it is best to remove, or safely store them during construction. Also, it is a good idea to protect items in the attic and to make sure that nothing is touching the underside of the roof deck. If your house has been re-plumbed, or new a/c lines run, sometimes these lines may touch the underside of the roof decking. Because of this, there is a risk of nail penetration. Please let your project manager know if you have any concerns about your attic.
If I want to add some work to my original contract, can I just inform the foreman to proceed?
Our workmen are instructed not to perform unauthorized, additional work. Please contact our office or your sales representative immediately and we will make every effort to comply with your request. This is important for your protection, as well as ours.
