3 Roof Replacement Mistakes You Should Avoid

Given the size and complexity of a roof replacement, it’s not uncommon for many homeowners to make a few mistakes. By learning more about these possible pitfalls – and avoiding them – you can make your project simpler and less stressful. So, you should avoid the following mistakes:

roof replacement planning
  1. Focusing too much on price: A roof replacement can be expensive, yes, but prioritizing price will cost you more in the long run. If a contractor is offering a bid that seems too good to be true, it almost always is. You won’t want to end up with subpar materials and sloppy workmanship. In a major undertaking like roof replacement, choosing quality over price is always the way to go.
  1. Overlooking the necessary permits: Because a new residential roofing involves making huge alterations to your home’s structure, you’ll need to make sure the work will adhere to safety codes and regulations. Having your choice of roofer acquire the applicable permits is the first step to this. And, if you’re planning to veer away from the previous roofing material and color, check with your local homeowner’s association first to get an idea about possible restrictions. It’s important that you get approval from your homeowner’s association (HOA) and building division before starting any work on your roof.
  1. Working with a contractor you don’t know: You’ll want to learn more about your choice of roofing company. You’ll be relying on their expertise to ensure a smoother and safer roof replacement, after all. First things first: check the contractors’ qualifications. Ask them for proof of licensing, bond and insurance. Make sure they can give you a detailed and accurate estimate of your roof replacement. You should also look them up online and read what their previous clients are saying about the quality of their work. Follow this up by asking for an updated list of references.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

Excellent experience, prompt and professional estimate, showed up on schedule (actually a day early) and did a thorough and complete job. All personnel were professional,polite and great at their jobs. Would recommend to anyone.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
