Roofing (cont., pg. 10)



What You Need To Do

The first thing you do is to hire (days before you need him) an experienced, licensed, insured roofing contractor with good references ─ whom you actually called.

 

 Brick flashing, caulked and painted

 

● Well in advance of time to install roofing, make your roofing type selection and make sure that your supplier has that particular style in stock.  If not in stock, they will have time to place the order so that materials are ready when your roofer is.

You may purchase roofing from your primary building material supplier or from a roofing specialty store.

● Once you have chosen a supplier, have one of their sales reps go to your job site and do a take-off (estimate of material needed).

The take-off should include not only shingles or whatever your roofing surface will be, but also flashing, drip edge, nails, pipe flanges (if your plumber hasn’t provided them) and whatever ventilation devices you’ll be using.

● Verify with your roofer when he’ll be starting and order the materials so that they will be on site and ready to go.

Some roofers provide their own nails and include them in the price they charge.  Others expect the builder to provide them.  If that is the case, determine the type and size of the nails and include them in the order.

If the material is delivered to the job site and will sit overnight before the roofer begins, secure smaller items such as boxes of nails and vents.  These are expensive and are targets for thieves.

● Upon completion of job, call your roofing supplier immediately for pick up of any leftover materials.  You will be issued a credit for unused items.
