Thinking of getting a new roof? Whether it’s because your roof is severely damaged, deteriorating, or just because it’s been a while since it’s last been replaced, getting a new roof is a smart move. The roof is essential to the structural integrity of your home, and making sure that it’s in tip-top shape is important for the safety of you and your family. What do you need to know before you get a new roof?
What You Need to Know Before You Get a New Roof
Getting a New Roof Can BeLoud: Roof work, in general, can be loud, but with something as extensive as getting a new roof you can expect some noise throughout the process. If anyone in your family, such as pets or young children, is sensitive to loud noises, it may be a good idea to have them stay elsewhere while the roof work is in progress. In addition, it may be a good idea to let your neighbors know that noisy work will be going on.
You May Spend More Than You’re Thinking: Getting a roof replaced can be a significant amount of money, and you want to make sure you take the time to find the right contractor before you begin – even if that means your price tag is a little higher. But spending extra is for a trusted contractor is worth it. Your roof is an incredibly important part of your house’s safety and structural soundness. Having a roof you know you and your family can safely live under is worth the blow to your wallet.
You May Need to Do Away With your Old Shingles: Reroofing – placing new shingles over existing ones – is an appealing way to fix roof problems without paying as much, and is approved by local codes and manufacturers. But reroofing is often not recommended. If your old shingle roof has leaked, it’s difficult to tell if there are problems underneath If you don’t remove the shingles. An honest contractor can tell you if your roof is a good candidate for an overlay.
You Should Choose the Right Material: Roofs can be made out of many different materials. Most Arizona homes with asphalt shingles choose laminated shingles, as they’re durable and stand up well to heat. However, other materials, such as metal sheets, designer shingles, and even wooden shingles are excellent options. Read More: Best Roofing Materials for Arizona Homes
You Need to Find the Right Contractor: Finding the right contractor is an integral part of making sure your new roof is safe, secure, and long-lasting. You need roofers you can trust to do a good job. Don’t just go with the first or cheapest contractor – do your research and select the one that looks best.
You Should Review the Contract: Once you’re happy with your contractor, ask them for the contract and review it carefully. The contract should include everything you’ve discussed, the materials that will be used, and the work that will be done on your roof. Make sure you’re satisfied with it before work begins.
You’ll Need Some Paperwork: Before construction can begin, you’re likely going to need some important documents; specifically, a building permit, and a letter from the contractor’s insurance company that confirms that the work is covered.

I have a new roof today thanks to Roofstar. From the estimate with Chris with understanding the process. Able to talk to all top brass with the care and interest in sharing the process through the team that showed up and did The work. Always willing to answer my questions I am thrilled with the results. Thanks Jeff, Jose, Juan, and Chris. I would highly recommend your team. Your onsite workers were fabulous.
The estimator, James, was very pleasant, thorough, and did a great job of explaining what was needed to repair our roof. We thought that the quoted cost was reasonable and decided to go with Roofstar. We are happy that we did. Juan Diaz and his crew did an outstanding job with the repair and cleanup. Everything was accomplished per the quote and at the quoted price. Very happy and will recommend Roofstar to any neighbors needing roof work.
Jeff found problems we knew were wrong with our roof that other Roofers who inspected & gave proposals missed. He was very straight forward, honest & always making sure our questions were answered. He & his crew showed us materials being used & explained everything! He got on the roof during the work to make sure things were going right. His crew are outstanding, respectful, honest and very clean. Couldn’t be more satisfied!! He came highly recommended & we can see why! Thank you Jeff, Juan and Crew for all your hard work. They care & take pride in their work & customers!

I want to extend my compliments to Santiago Sr & Jr. I really appreciated Santiago Sr’s sense of ’ownership’ with the job and recognize and am grateful for the effort that he and his son put into making sure the job was done well. They did excellent work! Thank you.
We had work done last week, they were thorough, reasonably priced, on time, cleaned up after themselves, and provide before and after photos. They also have an inspector check the work after, they do not try to sell you things you do not need. I appreciate their honesty.
We just want to thank you (Jeff) and your employees for the excellent and professional job in replacing our tile roof. Your employee’s (Juan Diaz and crew) were diligent, neat, pleasant, worked independently and very competent. It was such a pleasure to do business with a company with such high standards. We would highly recommend your company without reservations.

Work was completed. Crew (Geral Gordon and crew) was very professional, worked seamlessly and left the place in perfect condition.
I have had several neighbors ask about your company and have given favorable recommendations to this point. Your team was very professional and I think to this point did a great job! I am in sales as well and just to let you know Mike was very professional in his meeting with me and his presentation and follow up made the difference between other companies.
Love that they didn’t try and sell you a roof and repaired. Thanks for helping us get by to save up for complete repair. Work was done timely. I loved they had women roofers!
