Unfortunately too many people slap on a new roof and then forget about it until something happens. Whether they have tile roofs, composite roofs, asphalt shingle roofs, natural slate roofs, single ply/foam roofs, wood roofs, or metal roofs, it's important for seniors in Atlanta to get a roof inspection to avoid incurring future costs that might result from roof replacements and roof repairs. And even if roofs are protected with alloy metal flashing, copper, or stainless steel, or the fancier ornamental roof crestings, a cupola to add flair or a handcrafted weathervane style, no senior in Atlanta can afford to neglect the roof. Adding snow guards and roof vents can also protect the roof from the elements. Because of the heavy rains in Atlanta, seniors should also get their gutters cleaned, whether they're copper gutters, rain gutters or wood gutters. Clogged gutters can degrade siding and destroy landscaping and even the home's foundation.

Atlanta Roofing | New Roofs | Roof Repair | Covered Gutters

There are several options when it comes to replacing or repairing your roof and/or gutter system. They vary in material, construction and cost.

When considering your options, take into account your budget, any reimbursement from insurance, if applicable, the existing material and your desired look and function when the project is complete.

When considering any type of contractor, it is always advisable to call at least six of their references. Ask for details about the experience each had with the contractor. If it is all good, continue by saying, "Please tell me of any little problem you may have had with this person." This last question tells the person called that it is okay to talk about any minor problems, which may or may not be minor to you.

No matter when it may come in the conversation, do NOT sign anything if you hear, "If you sign up today ... (we'll give you this great deal)." This is your "red flag" that this company is probably way too expensive.

If money is an issue, you may want to investigate obtaining a Reverse Mortgage, especially if you need some home improvements to be able to stay in your home as long as possible.

As always, call the Better Business Bureau to make sure there have been no reported complaints. (This number is located in the Quick Guide of your SRD). Depending on the job, it is advisable to ask to see certification that the contractor is bonded and insured.
