Most Common Roofing Questions

Buying a new roof or needing repairs on one may be an unfamiliar process for the average residential customer. To better familiarize our customers with the process, we sought help from Peter, one of our Residential Sales Managers. He helped us brainstorm commonly asked questions.

How long will work take?

Once we know what type of roof and the size of your home we can estimate the duration of the project. For example, for the average house a shingle reroof takes 1-2 days, and for larger homes it takes anywhere from 2-4 days. We attempt to meet the estimated times although rarely we face unforeseen obstacles such as bad weather which could potentially delay the project.

Do I need to be home when the work takes place?

No, you are not required to be home for the work to take place. We have dedicated project managers that will handle coordination with both you and the crew. If you choose not to be home during our project, we do ask that all remaining vehicles are moved from the driveway to prevent damage from debris.

How much does a metal roof cost than a shingle roof.

On average, a standing seam metal roof will cost at least 3 times more than a shingle reroof. While metal roofs are more costly, they last significantly longer. A shingle roof is expected to last 10-15 years compared to a metal roof that could last up to 30 years.

Who will perform the work, employees or subcontractors?

We utilize both options for different jobs. For example, a shingle reroof will typically be handled by a sub-crew, overseen by one of one of Baker Roofing’s dedicated project managers.

What makes Baker Roofing different from other roofing companies?

Our crews have a strong work ethic and and get the job done mentality. While efficiency is one of our priorities, here at Baker wr believe the job is not truly completed until the final walkthrough occurs and the customer is satisfied.

We fully acknowledge that this is simplistic and helpful, but far from all inclusive/comprehensive. Still have remaining questions? Feel free to shoot us an email, give us a phone call, or contact us through Social Media. Help us help you!
