I have been helping mountain homeowners with their new roof decisions since 1996. I strongly believe it is imperative that you choose a quality product and installation over the cheapest price. Here's why: The San Bernardino Mountains are a high wind area. We occasionally experience Category 3 Hurricane type weather. This means winds over 110 mph, with wind gusts getting up to 125 mph every winter. Please consider the following before you make your decision on material and your installer:
If you plan to get three bids, don't just look at the prices. Visit their jobsite and look at the quality of their workmanship too. Are they installing according to manufacturer's specifications and our "Do It Right" list?
Learn from the mistakes others have made. We have seen it all: poorly installed roofs, roofs getting blown off, roofers going out of business, roofers that change their company name and blow in to our town only to disappear again, and inadequate materials for our hazardous weather. We don't live in a climate with 'normal' weather conditions - your home takes a serious beating every season with 'EXTREME' weather conditions.
Please ask a lot of questions. Myself or anyone in our office will be happy to answer them and explain all the options. Together, we can make your new roof the last one you will need!
