What measures do Roof Doctors take to protect my property during the replacement process?
Roof Doctors take several steps to ensure your property’s safety and cleanliness during a roof replacement. We use durable coverings to shield your landscaping, patios, and outdoor furniture from debris. Our team is meticulous in setting up and securing the work area to prevent accidental damage. After the job, we conducted a thorough cleanup, removing all construction debris and materials and leaving your property as clean and orderly as we found it.
How do Roof Doctors manage waste and old roofing materials during replacement?
At Roof Doctors, we’re committed to responsible waste management. We carefully collect all old roofing materials and debris when replacing your roof. These materials are then sorted, with a significant portion often being recycled, reducing the environmental impact. Materials like asphalt shingles, metal pieces, and old wood are disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner or recycled whenever possible, aligning with our sustainability practices.
What are the most cost-effective roofing materials for a replacement in Oakland, CA?
Asphalt shingles are generally the most budget-friendly option when considering cost-effectiveness for roofing materials. They balance durability, aesthetic appeal, and affordability, making them popular among homeowners. Asphalt shingles come in various styles and colors, allowing for customization without significantly increasing costs. They are also easier to install, which can further reduce labor costs.
How does Roof Doctors address ventilation and insulation in a new roof?
Proper ventilation and insulation are critical components of any roofing system, and Roof Doctors pay special attention to these aspects. We assess your current attic ventilation and insulation status and make necessary adjustments or improvements during the roof replacement. This could involve adding or optimizing vents and ensuring adequate airflow to reduce heat and moisture buildup. For insulation, we check for proper thickness and material quality, enhancing your home’s energy efficiency. These measures help maintain a comfortable indoor temperature, reduce energy bills, and prolong the lifespan of your roof.
Many of our competitors will charge up to $100 or more to a homeowner or a home buyer to inspect a roof and then issue a roof report describing how bad the roof is and what repairs may be required to fix that roof. We believe that paying a roofing contractor to describe any roof problems in a roof report is like a roofing contractor paying a homeowner to fix their roof….and we all know that is not going to happen. Roof Doctors performs such a high-volume of inspections that it has the convenience of providing free roof inspections and free roof reports. The following are tips to keep you informed.
Roof Tip #1
A buyer was recommended by a Realtor to have a roof inspection performed on a real estate purchase transaction on a home in Oakland. Roof Doctors completed a roof inspection and issued a roof report indicating that roof repairs were required in the amount of $375 and a 2-year Roof Certification Leak Warranty was offered in the amount of $250 for a total of $625.
The Realtor recommended that the home buyer hire a handyman to do the roof repairs for $590. Escrow closed, rainstorms occurred, and the roof subsequently leaked in an area unrelated to the roof repairs completed by the handyman. Roof Doctors performed a re-inspection of the roof and discovered that roof repairs were required to clean out tile roof valleys in the amount of $725, which would have been covered by a Roof Certification Leak warranty. The Realtor ended up paying the cost for the roof repairs for recommending a handyman instead of a licensed roofing contractor to do the original roof repairs.
Roof Tip #2
Roofing applications for homes with a pitch or a slope less than 2 1/2 require a flat-roof application. Many times, during a roof inspection, it is discovered that patios, room additions, or porches have flat-pitched roof repairs or new roofs that were installed with 3-tab or dimensional composition roofing materials. Composition roofing material is not a flat-roof application and should always be avoided. These types of roofs will usually leak and cause serious dry-rot damage in the sub-roofing and will require costly roof repairs. Always obtain a roof inspection on any real estate transaction and make sure any roof repairs are completed to correct any improper roof installation of any roof before taking possession of any dwelling unit.
Roof Tip #3
Many times, Roof Doctors will be contacted to perform a roof inspection, perform roof repairs or to issue a Roof Certification Leak Warranty on a home with a flat-roof application. Typically, the only companies that will certify a flat-roof application is the roofing contractor who installed the current roof and provided that it is still within their warranty period. Reputable roofing contractors will perform roof repairs but will not provide Roof Certification Leak Warranty on flat-roof applications that they did not install themselves. Sometimes a lender will require roof repairs and a Roof Certification Leak Warranty as a condition of funding their loan. It is our recommendation that you contact the City or County Building Department who has jurisdiction over the property, find the name and contact information of the Roofing Contractor who did the roof repairs or installed the roof and find out if it is still within their warranty period, otherwise the roof may require replacement.
