3 Most Common FAQs Emergency Roofers Hear

Emergency roofers often have to deal with various emergency roofing jobs, from permanently damaged roofs to leaky ones. All too often, they find themselves dealing with the same few questions over and over again. Here are three frequently asked questions emergency roofers often answer.

1. How Long Will It Take to Fix My Roof?

Rooftop repairs can be highly unpredictable. Without getting on-site or even looking at the damage, there’s no way for an emergency roofer to know how long the job will take. There are simply too many variables in play. That said, if their staff is already out in the field, it’s not uncommon for the company to try and fit a quick fix in between other jobs. This way, clients can at least have some basic protection from the elements until full restoration is complete.

2. How Much Does It Cost?

Unfortunately, there isn’t a set price tag on any given emergency roofing job. There are, however, plenty of factors that go into pricing. These include:

  • The size of the property: The bigger the roof, the more materials and labor required. The smaller the property, the less it costs to complete a job.
  • The condition of the roof: Generally, the older a roof is, the more money it will cost to fix. On the flip side, jobs can be done for less if the damage is minimal or nonexistent.
  • The location of the property: The labor and material costs in one state/region often vary from those in another.
  • The materials used: Different types of roofs require different types and grades of material, each with its own price tag.
  • The complexity of the job: A more complex emergency roofing job will cost more, while simple repairs are generally less expensive.

Additionally, the siding on a home is measured in square feet, not individual squares. The term “square foot” refers to 100 square feet of siding. The roofing industry uses square feet to measure how much material is needed for specific jobs. That said, there isn’t a set price on any given roofing job without first seeing the property and determining what materials need to be used. Also, good companies will often recommend a solution that is the most cost-effective for their clients.

3. How Do I Know You’re Trustworthy?

Emergency roofers have a reputation for being particularly trustworthy. That’s because they use high-quality materials and hire only the most experienced workers. In addition, reputable companies can provide proof that they are licensed and insured. Combined with their stellar customer service record, there should be little reason to worry about being scammed.

When you require emergency roofing services, the best thing you can do is find a trustworthy company in your area that has great reviews and fair prices. It’s important to obtain help right away in an emergency roofing situation. For more information, contact ROOFWORKS today.
