What to Look for in a Roofing Estimate

Does your roof look a little worse for wear? If you’re suffering from crumbling shingles and leaks, it’s time for a roof renovation. Turn your roof into a beautiful and functional part of your home with new roofing from Harry Helmet. A roofing estimate is the first step in deciding how to improve your home with a new roof.

What’s Involved in a Roofing Estimate?

Homeowners rarely have to replace their roofs, which means that this may be the first roofing estimate that you’ve ever had. What can you expect from a roofing estimate?

  • Look for those who will give you a free estimate, so that you don’t need to pay to make the right decision for your home.
  • Look for a company that thoroughly inspects your home to get a clear understanding of your real roofing needs.
  • Ask about warranties on workmanship and materials. Harry Helmet has a 10 year warranty on workmanship, with manufacturer warranties available on materials with up to lifetime limited warranty periods.
  • Find an installer with experience. Harry Helmet has been working on roof replacements since 1981. Your estimate should be able to give you detailed information about your potential costs and the best roofing options for your desired look, budget, and climate.
  • Look for an installer that you can trust. The person who does your estimate should have local knowledge about how roofing materials hold up in your particular climate and should understand how various aspects of your roofing, such as your gutter systems work into a comprehensive roofing system. Your roof is one of the most important parts of your home, so look for an installer who makes you feel confident in their products and skills.

The roofing material you choose will determine your roof’s longevity and utility.

What Kind of Roof Should I Get?

Harry Helmet’s experienced team can help guide you as you choose between hundreds of roofing products. Common roofing products include slate, asphalt, metal, plastic polymer, clay or concrete tile, and wooden shingles. Each material has benefits and drawbacks. When you get a roofing estimate, ask about:

  • The lifespan of the roof. How long will it last?
  • Its durability. Can it manage the weather in your area?
  • Its interactions with your existing home. Can your house physically manage this roof?
  • The cost. Can you afford this roof?
  • The look. Is it a roof that you (and your neighbors) will be proud of?

Roofing Support Systems

Look for a company that doesn’t just install roofs. Can that company also install the support systems that your roof needs? When you’re looking for a holistic roofing solution, install new gutters and gutter guards that help your roof drain easily. With gutter heating products, you can also prevent ice dams from forming and damaging your new roof, since your gutters will flow no matter how cold it gets. As you install a new roof, set yourself up for success with Harry Helmet.

1 Million+ Satisfied Customers Nationwide

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
