I am a homeowner looking for a reputable roofing company to re-roof my home. I have called several complies to inquire and have asked a lot of question. One question is what Quality Control measure are taken to ensure a quality installation. I specifically asked if each step of the project is inspected/reviewed before moving on to the next step. On two separate occasions I’ve been told NO. I asked if they have someone get on the roof to check things have done properly and again they both said they only do a visual inspection from the ground. Am I crazy to think someone should be responsible for ensuring the job has been done right by actually climbing on the roof and doing periodic checks? A check and balance of sorts? Are my expectations unreasonable?
Also, what shingle brands are among the highest quality and which ones should We stay away from? In my area it seems like most companies “house” brand is Owens Corning Duration or Certainteed. Any strong opinions on either of these. Any others we should be considering?
Finally, what questions should I be asking to vet my prospective roofer? What questions should I be asking that will set one roofer apart from another because right now they all seem to be working from the same script.
