Why are there differences between the bid estimates I’ve received?
The reason experts recommend that you get multiple bids for your job isn’t about finding the cheapest quote; it’s about finding good value. The prices you get reflect details like the quality of the materials and the labor. Be cautious of bids that seem too low – you get what you pay for. When it comes to your roofing system, there’s no room for inferior work or error.
How do I choose the best roofing material?
It is good to have plenty of options, but it can feel daunting. How do you make the right choice for your building? Budget, longevity, and appearance are all key factors to consider. When you work with the experts at Bartow Roofing, we’ll give you the pros and cons to consider for each type of roofing material so you can make the best decision for your project.
How long will the roof last?
The lifespan of your rooftop depends on several factors, including the quality of the material and labor used for the initial installation. Regular maintenance of your roof throughout the years will also make a big difference. The shortest lifespan is asphalt shingles, which last approximately 20 years. Typical flat room membranes last 20-25 years, and metal roofing lasts 30-40 years. Our team will discuss your options and help you determine the best roof type for your needs.
Can shingle roofing be used on commercial buildings?
While shingles are still most commonly used for residential structures, they’re still popular with commercial facilities, too, depending on the type of building and business. If you have a structure that customers will come to, shingles help create a warm and welcoming appearance. However, if your building has a roof that’s flat, it’s a good idea to consider another roofing system material.
Are more expensive roofing materials worth it?
The tradeoff for roofing materials that cost more is that you get performance and longevity in return. So, while shingles may be more cost effective upfront, you’re more likely to need maintenance and repairs during a shorter 20-year lifespan. When you cost average more expensive materials, you will find they cost less over time since they provide a longer lifespan with fewer maintenance requirements.
