Experienced Roofers with Manufacturer Assistance Offer Commercial & Residential Customer Support

Flat Roofs

Not all roofers are created equal. In fact, 80% of roofing companies go out of business within their first two years. Out of the remaining 20%, 10% go out of business within five years. That leaves 10% of roofers that need to be carefully vetted for quality of work and longevity. 

When selecting a roofer, you want a company that has been in business for at least 5-10 years. Roofers with longevity are often backed by roofing supply companies. All roofs can get damaged, even new ones, therefore, you want to select a company that can provide excellent service long after your roof has been replaced. Most reputable roofers offer some kind of warranty that can be paired with the manufacturers. This means decades of roof assurance.

 North-West Roofing has been in business for over 50 years. We provide 20-40 years worth of protection depending on your roof. Additionally, we partner with multiple billion-dollar supply companies, such as GAF, to give your home and business double roof coverage. We stand behind our work! Furthermore, we are one of the only roofing companies that offers a maintenance plan. This plan gives you bi-annual roof inspections to ensure your investment is in tip top shape. Whether you use North-West Roofing or another roofing company, please do your homework. This will ensure your roof is properly maintained for many years to come.

House Value and Roofing

September 14, 2019

Are you looking for more curb appeal?

  • Upgrading from old shingles, especially three tab shingles to dimensional, gives the entire home an updated, more sophisticated look with more appealing color choices giving your home a new, refreshed look.
  • By adding small features, such as high profile ridges and ridge caps when installing your roof gives off a more modern feel. Don’t forget to improve your ventilation throughout to lower your electric bill!
  • Proper ventilation systems reduce costs since it releases hot air, in turn, keeping it cooler in the summer. This update will also prolong the shingle life due to the shingles not overheating from underneath. 

New Roof Discount

  • Many insurance companies provide a discount on your premiums when your roof is less than five years old. 

Impact Resistant or Class Four Shingles

  • Both of these have the potential to lower your insurance premiums and provides you with a peace of mind that the inevitable hail storm may be withstood. 
  • A new roof provides a seller’s advantage because it allows you to price it without considering a concession of an old roof or roof repairs. 
  • We also provide a pre list inspection to see if we can identify any repairs that need to be done so you are able to call your insurance company immediately.

Three Important Residential Roofing Tips for Homeowners

Residential shingle roof

These top-priority residential roofing tips are important for homeowners to know, before they initiate residential roofing repair or replacement. These residential roofing tips will help homeowners understand:

• How to work with a reputable roofer to make sure your insurance adjuster sees (and compensates) accurately for roof damage
• How to allow time for an often-missed step in the process of residential roofing repair
• How to ensure that your new roof will pass inspection once the repairs or roofing replacement are completed

3 Practical Residential Roofing Tips That Benefit Homeowners

Here are some tips for homeowners on how to avoid common pitfalls in the process of replacing or repairing your home’s roof.

Residential Roofing Tip 1: Have your roofer meet your insurance adjuster at your home

When a big storm hits, insurance adjusters often work 12-hour days to review and assess damage and make recommendations for an insurance pay-out in hard-hit areas. Because they’re often tired and pressed for time, key items that affect the reimbursement check can go missing. At North West Roofing, we meet every insurance adjuster at our customer’s homes to provide another set of “eyes.” This ensures that your insurance check covers the roofing work that needs to be done, allowing the roofing work to begin right away.

Residential Roofing Tip 2: Allow time for the insurance check to be sent to your mortgage company

In some cases, insurance checks may need to be endorsed by the mortgage company. It can be a long process to contact multiple mortgage departments, coordinate inspections, process & submit documentation, and handle multiple follow-up call, with the goal of having the mortgage company endorse the check and return it so you can start the roof repair or replacement. To address this, North West roofing has a dedicated mortgage department to ensure the timely and proper processing of the insurance check by the mortgage company. Once we process the insurance check that’s been endorsed by the mortgage company, we offer a courtesy credit on all funds being held by the mortgage company. This helps ensure your project starts promptly.

Residential Roofing Tip 3: Work with a legitimate roofing company that knows building codes in your community

North West Roofing is fully licensed in every municipality along Colorado’s Front Range. This ensures that we can pull permits & schedule the final inspection of residential roofing projects in a timely manner. We’re also trained on the building codes of each municipality that relate to roofing. As a result, we will know what your home needs for the roof to pass inspection. By working with a reputable roofer that knows the building codes in your area, you’re one step closer to a roofing replacement that flies through the inspection process.
