In the spirit of Halloween, we thought we would share some of our biggest fears as roofers. While it takes a lot to spook us, there are times that even our most experienced roofers have to face their fears while on the job site. Let’s take a look at our biggest fears at your trusted Colorado roofers!
Scaling roofs is simply part of our job here at Elite. While the vast majority of the roofs we repair and replace are standard pitch or low slope, we do occasionally encounter an extreme steep slope roof. As highly experienced roofers, it’s nothing we can’t handle, but it certainly leaves our crews feeling more than a little spooked.
Unexpected Severe Weather
As roofers, our ability to be productive is very much weather dependent. Severe weather can hold jobs up and pose safety threats. While we watch weather reports closely, particularly during storm season here in the Rockies, there are times that unexpected weather patterns take our crews by surprise. In these cases, we take measures as quickly as possible to protect our crews as well as your property. One thing is for sure, nothing is quite as frightening as being on a roof when lightning strikes nearby!
Homeowners Climbing on Their Own Roofs
The risk involved in climbing on a roof is extremely high, particularly to those who are inexperience in safety protocol. Hearing from homeowners who have taken it upon themselves to assess their roof damage up close is always scary. Do us a favor and leave the roof inspections to the professionals!
Low Quality Materials
There is nothing worse than completing an inspection on a roof that has only sustained minor damage to find that low quality roofing materials were used when installing the roof. In these cases, we have to recommend a complete replacement when a repair would otherwise would have been an option. Talk about a freight to the homeowner! This is why we only offer the highest quality materials here at Elite.
Yet another fear of your trusted roofers is poor craftsmanship. We never like to inspect a roof that was installed improperly or lackadaisically. This is again a frightful situation, as we have to deliver bad news to the property owner. Hence why it’s so important to hire a roofing company with a trusted track record in your community who also offers a workmanship warranty.
On behalf of the entire Elite Family, we would like to wish you and your little ghosts and goblins a Happy Halloween! Stay safe out there and remember, if you ever suspect that your roof has sustained damage, leave the inspection to us! At Elite Roofing, we proud to offer free, no-obligation roofing inspections, so there is no need to take on the scary task of climbing on your roof.
As your trusted local roofers, we are here to help you through every step of the roof repair or replacement process. From initial inspection to interfacing with your insurance company, to completing your repair or replacement, we’ve got you covered!
