Benjamin Franklin once said, “An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure”. We honor the wise words of Mr. Franklin with our residential roofing services, and recommend that property owners have their roof inspected twice annually. In our experience, preventative maintenance is always better than ignoring possible issues and experiencing a more serious problem later on. We realize that having your roof inspected is inconvenient but putting it off can be more costly later on.
From what you can see your roof may look fine, but as your roof ages it gets more vulnerable. A close inspection by a professional residential roofing inspector may reveal less obvious damage, that may impact the effectiveness of your roof. You never know, serious weather events might just have you living under a false sense of security.
Homegrown Roofing and Contracting provides complete residential roofing inspection services, which include a thorough examination of the roof, and a survey of its basic components. (Eg: flashings) An inspection by a roofing professional will help you to rest easy by being confident in the condition of your roof. Worst case scenario, our professionals can help identify possible areas of concern and offer remedies. This way you can avoid more costly repairs down the line! We are able to service, repair, and replace all residential roofing types.

Residential Roof Replacement Process

Prior to your residential roof installation, we want you to be well informed. We work to contain trash and debris as much as possible, but you may want to move and/or cover any important items around the work area for extra precaution.
Also we want you to know that this type of work will cause noise and vibrations, which can be disruptive. In addition, you may want to be careful of items such as, breakable items around walls, pictures, and light fixtures. Please remove and protect items such as this. We will even help you a day prior to installation if need be.
You may want to stay on site, which is totally fine, but we recommend that you plan a day out so that you don’t have to be bothered by commotion that happens during a residential roof installation. Any way that it goes, we respect your home, and work to make whole process go as smooth as possible!

Materials are likely to be delivered 1-3 days prior to installation, and are usually kept on the property. Most of the time the delivery truck can load the roofing materials directly on the roof, but there is circumstances where it has to be placed on the ground. Furthermore, we are going to need to be able to place a dumpster for the waste. Last, we will post a permit for the work to be performed.
All of this we plan with you ahead of time, so that we know how we can best serve you!

Here comes the best part, YOUR NEW ROOF! Our residential roofers will show up at the scheduled time, likely first thing in the morning to begin work. They may lay tarps to contain trash and will work to prevent interrupting you as much as possible.
Even though we recommend you plan a day out, open lines of communication are important. For that reason, that there is a contact person that we are able to reach during construction. However, you can rest assured being confident that our residential roofers know what they are doing!

During the commercial roof replacement process, our team is going to be working efficiently, and effectively. However, we are not just going to leave a mess laying around everywhere. We do our best to keep it to a minimum during the commercial roof installation, but we will make sure to do a thorough clean up when it is all said and done.
After we are finished, we will run a nail magnet around the entire property, closely checking for trash, making sure we leave your property looking the way it was. Even more, we will help you move any items that need to be set back in place. This way you can start enjoying your new roof!

Congratulations on improving your home and protecting your investment! The roof is finished and now you don’t have to worry about it anymore. We make sure that it passes all inspections and we register all warranties. Granules may show up in the gutters after installation, please know this is totally normal.
