The good news is that Duffy Roof, your Johns Creek roof replacements and repairs professionals, are here to answer your questions now.
Are you licensed and insured?
Yes, we are! Many states require a license, but we ensure we stay one step ahead of all requirements. You can check with city hall to find out if your preferred roofer has one, and if you need a roofing permit in your city. Yes, we have liability insurance for damages and injuries, and we also have Workers’ Compensation insurance for our own workers. It all provides extra peace-of-mind to know that if something goes wrong, the homeowner is covered from losses and damages.
Do you remove the old roof or just build on top?
We are aware of the practice of installing shingles on top of shingles, but don’t recommend more than two layers. You’d be surprised at what we find underneath shingles! So yes, we can remove everything, including rotting wood beneath, gutters, basically anything relating to roofing products, before we install your brand new roofing materials.
Is drip edge metal necessary?
New roofing materials are constantly being invented, and they’re designed so that water flows over them and then away from your house, without seeping in or causing damage. So yes, we do recommend edge metal, which is basically a small piece of aluminum that’s placed under the shingles at the edge of the roof. For such a minimal investment, your fascia and wood of your roof are doubly protected.
My gutters are new, how is damage prevented?
Many people are concerned, as they’ve gone to great expense to install new gutters, then realized that their roof needs replacing next. But don’t worry, as this is not an issue. We actually use equipment called ladder stabilizers or standoffs. They rest safely against the side of your building, but still enable workers to safely get up and down the roof. They kind of look like long arms or ledges. They also allow the roofers to better install your new roof.
Who is responsible for the garbage?
There can be a lot of refuse involved in the removal of an old roof, and the installation of a new roof. We usually place large tarps on the ground to collect this debris. At the end of the day, it’ll be scooped up and removed in our truck. The homeowner does not and should not need to do anything from the start to the finish of the job. We are even conscientious about stray nails laying around.
