4 important reasons you should only hire a professional roofing contractor

Using professionals makes a difference 

At Stay Dry Roofing, we understand what you’re dealing with on a daily basis. You have bills to pay, deadlines to meet, commitments to keep, and have to do everything with what seems like too few hours in the day. So sometimes, taking a shortcut might seem like a good idea at the time. But is it really? 

Well, when it comes to your roof, taking a shortcut is often highly advised against. Your roof is such an important part of your home or business, it’s not worth cutting corners to just “get it done.” It is always recommended that when looking for a roofing contractor in Tampa, FL or the surrounding areas, you choose a true professional.

While others may be cheaper, or may claim to finish the project sooner, the results are usually less than desirable and you’ll likely be back where you started in just a few years. When you work with a professional roofing contractor, you get results the company will stand behind, and peace of mind knowing that not only did you make the better decision, but you, your family, belongings, and business are secure and safe. 

The benefits of choosing a professional roofing contractor

An expert on all things roofing

A roof may seem simple on the outside and to those who aren’t in the industry. But in reality, roofs are installed and repaired with precision and planning. Even simple repairs should not be done by just anyone. While a handyman may claim to have roofing experience, they can actually do more damage than good to your roof if they don’t have the experience a roofing contractor has. 

A professional roofing team knows how to safely remove tiles or shingles, prepare the area for reinstallation, and can also make repairs and suggestions for improvements. Our team at Stay Dry Roofing believes that an informed client can make the best decisions for their home and family, and will always try to educate you on why or what needs to be done to your roof. That way you can feel more comfortable making the right choice.

Roofing warranties

After you’ve already put in all that time, effort, and money into getting a new roof, don’t you think you deserve some reassurance and peace of mind? When you choose to work with a professional roofing contractor, you’ll get warranties on your new roof. Whether those warranties cover labor, workmanship, or material defects, you’ll be able to rest easy knowing that if anything happens, you’ll be protected. Having work done by those who cannot offer this should be a red flag. That means if a problem occurs after the work is completed, the fix is back on your dime. 

At Stay Dry Roofing, we are proud to offer roofing warranties because we believe in the work we do. Our team is also a certified Master Elite Contractor for GAF roofing systems. This allows us to offer homeowners up to a 50 year warranty on shingle roofs!

Licensed and insured contractors

You can never be too careful these days with who you hire to work on projects around your home. The sad truth is that there are many people out there who are trying to scam unsuspecting homeowners on quality of work, or worse, out of injury claims. Working on a roof is not something that anyone can do…it can be dangerous. So having a contractor team that is licensed and insured protects you, the roofing company, and the contractors working on your home. 

Our team at Stay Dry Roofing is licensed, insured, and heavily trained. We never take shortcuts and put the safety of you and our team first and foremost. We always use safety equipment, protective gear, and have the training to work on even the most unstable roof.

Peace of mind for years to come

If you’ve made the commitment to getting a new roof or even just repairing some damage, knowing that you chose a professional roofing contractor will help you sleep easier at night. In the long run, choosing a professional might be more expensive up front, but you’ll save loads more money when you realize that you won’t have to fix the same problem twice. 

No matter what the next storm brings, when you choose Stay Dry Roofing, you can rest assured that your roof is sturdy and safe, and if any damage happens, our team will be out to fix it as soon as possible.
