Congrats, you found your local roofing company in Bay City, MI!

As a company with over 40 years of experience in the roofing business, Herbert Roofing has been serving and satisfying its customers for a while. If you are in the middle of choosing a company to replace your roof, make sure to consider the following:

Know the Material Choices

Your roofing company should know the difference between roofing materials – and offer a wide variety of them. Whether you’re in the market for shingle, metal or flat roofs, be sure to ask your representative about these roofing types and related experience with installing your preferred material. Replacing your roof is an investment, and the style – and even color – can affect the resale value of your home when you go to sell.

At Herbert Roofing, we offer a variety of roofing material options, including GAF, CertainTweed, Arrow Line and Decra. No matter what you are looking for, we offer it; and our team has the experience to install it.  

Choose Manufacturer Designations

If you have a specific material in mind for your roof – such as GAF shingles – check to see if your roofing company has a manufacture designation. Companies with manufacture designations are the gold standard, as they must pass and maintain minimum requirements to be factory certified. For example, in the roofing contractor world, GAF enforces its manufacture designation by only providing ~2% of roofing contractors per market with Master Elite® Contractor status. As you can imagine, manufacture designation is a big deal. As Herbert Roofing has been in business for nearly 50 years, we have excellent understanding of roofing materials and maintain manufacture designations.

Check for Extensive Warranties

All roofing companies and contractors provide varying levels of warranties. It’s in your best interest to go with a roofing company that offers an expansive warranty, which includes workmanship coverage. With roofing replacements, it may take years for damage to rear its head, and regular insurance does not always cover this type of damage.

Herbert Roofing knows roofs fail, and that’s why we provide lifetime warranties. We can offer these extensive warranties because of the top-of-line materials we use and certifications. Know your coverage and choose a roofing company that will protect your home’s roof – even after you’ve long forgotten about it.

Don’t Give in to Pressure

You should never give into pressure of a roofing company or contractor asking to sign a contract before an estimate is given. Reputable roofing companies will always give you an estimation, which includes the damage and the associated cost evaluation.

If a roofing company or contractor claims they can work within the price range an insurance company settles on – be wary. All roofing companies and contractors should carefully examine damage and associated costs to ensure, so you can be in the know about total cost expectations. Herbert Roofing always consults with the homeowner about damage costs, so you can fee comfortable knowing the initial quote.
